One of the best parts of Disney World for any food lover will be Epcot! There may not be much in the way of rides, but there are plenty of things to eat and drink. Here’s how my Mum and I ate and drank our way around the world…
Mexico – margaritas & nachos
Mexico is the first country we hit, and it happens to be my favourite cuisine! We arrived around lunchtime, so we were pretty hungry, and it was difficult not to eat everything. We managed to stick to a portion of nachos and a couple of margaritas from La Cantina de San Angel. There are lots of different flavours; I chose a classic, but my Mum opted for a fruity mango margarita.
Norway – troll horn
Next up was Norway, and it was straight to Kingla Bakeri for a delicious troll horn. This is sugary puff pastry, shaped like a horn and filled with orange marmalade cream. Very sweet, but very tasty! If this doesn’t tickle your fancy, then there are other sweet treats to choose from in the bakery.
China – egg rolls
It’s back to savoury foods in China with some egg rolls, or spring rolls for fellow Brits. Lotus Blossom Café offers main dishes, but we chose the pork and vegetable egg rolls to give us a taste of China, whilst saving room for the rest of our gastronomic journey.
Germany – beers
There’s been a couple of countries without a drink, so Germany is the perfect place to grab a cold beer from, funnily enough, Bier – a cart serving a selection of German beers.
Italy – limoncello cocktails
This was one of the highlights for me because I loved sitting in the little courtyard outside of Via Napoli, as if I was in Italy, sipping a tasty cocktail. There are so many iconic Italian foods, but I decided to continue down the drinks route with a limoncello (in cocktail form). I got this from the Via Napoli cart, outside of the restaurant.
America – beef slider
Time for a bite again! For me, America had to be a slider, which is like a small burger. Hops & Barley is where I headed, and you can grab a beer here too to wash it down.
Japan – sake
Sake is a must when visiting Japan, and Japan in Epcot should be no different. Kabuki Café serves sushi and sake, so all food and drink bases are covered. There are different types of sake to choose from, but I opted for cold because it was a super hot day.
Morocco – small plates
Small plates are the perfect thing to pick up in Morocco because they won’t be too filling, or you can have more if you’re hungry! We chose a dish of chicken skewers with some cous cous on the side from Spice Road Table and we ate it by the water, which was lovely.
France – ice cream martini
UK – pint of Snake Bite
Being from the UK, I wasn’t sure what we would eat or drink here, but as soon as we saw the Rose & Crown (a very British looking pub), we decided a pint of Snake Bite it was! Snake Bite is half cider and half lager, which you can enjoy in the cosy pub or out in the sunshine.
Canada – poutine
The Refreshment Port in Canada serves the dish I always associate with Canada – poutine! Poutine is French fries with gravy and cheese curds added on top. It might not sound overly appetizing, but believe me, it’s delicious!
