Food at Epcot you should try!
Even if Disney World shut everything down except for its restaurants, it would still be an amazing place to visit. There is such a huge variety of food and beverages available that it would be impossible for a person to try every single dish and dessert. Feel free to prove us wrong, of course!
Every part of Disney World features wonderful dining locations and the myriad of Epcot restaurants is no different. There are hundreds of delicious food items available in this area of the theme park alone, and we thought we’d put together a quick list of our favorite food at Epcot that we implore you to try.
Welsh Pub Burger / Banofee Tart— Rose & Crown (United Kingdom)
If you’re only accustomed to American burgers, you should definitely give this one a go. In addition to a nice thick patty, this tasty burger is topped with bacon, beer-battered leeks, and rarebit sauce. Since you’re already at the Rose & Crown, don’t leave without trying the banoffee tart. This delicious dessert is a mix of bananas, cream, and coffee. They also have a mini version that’s made with chocolate.
Hummus Fries — Spice Road Table (Morocco)
In the United States, hummus has become one of the most popular dips and snacks in existence. If you like hummus, then you must try the deep-fried version. As a cross between falafel and hummus, this is the perfect way to enjoy one of your favorite snacks without worrying about chips, because they’re basically already a part of the fries. We have little doubt that you’re going to love these.
General Tso’s Chicken Bun — Nine Dragons (China)
The funny thing is that General Tso’s chicken is actually more popular in our restaurants than it is overseas. If you’ve never tried the chicken, it’s extremely tasty with just the right balance between crunchy and tender. At this restaurant, the chefs make the meal even more untraditional by placing it between two bao buns.
Volcano Roll — Tokyo Dining (Japan)
Sushi has a somewhat strange history in America. It seems that in most parts of the country, everyone just thought of it as raw fish and didn’t even attempt to try it. Then, it became a trendy thing in a few states, followed by it going mainstream a while later. The Tokyo dining restaurant celebrates this by creating a plate of California rolls that include sashimi tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and masago, with tempura crunch flowing down the sides.
Arancini — Via Napoli (Italy)
If you’re in the mood for Italian, you should definitely head over to Via Napoli and try their arancini. These are small balls of fried risotto, meat ragu, and mozzarella. They’re perfect for pasta and pizza aficionados. Once people try this delightful treat, they find themselves coming back for more over and over again.
Ice Cream Slushie — Fife and Drum Tavern (American Adventure)
Named The American Dream, this ice cream slushie is a combination of a strawberry, blue raspberry slushie, and soft-serve vanilla ice cream. If you’re anything like us, your mouth is watering just thinking about it. This delightful dessert is the perfect way to end any meal at the Fife and Drum Tavern. Food at Epcot doesn’t get better than this (though we admit we’re biased.)
Poutine / Beer Cheese Soup — Le Cellier Steakhouse (Canada)
There’s no way that we can talk about the food at Epcot without mentioning our neighbors to the north. Although most Americans have probably never heard of poutine, it’s a very popular dish in Canada. It’s a mix of french fries and cheese curds topped with a brown gravy. It goes perfectly with our other favorite culinary delight at this restaurant, which is the beer cheese soup. This cheddar cheese soup is spiked with New Brunswick’s Moosehad beer, and then topped with smoked bacon.
Potato “Scale” Fish — Monsieur Paul (France)
Typically known as the fanciest restaurant in Epcot, there’s plenty to love at Monsieur Paul. Our personal favorite is the black sea bass that’s been covered in potato “scales,” along with a rosemary cream sauce. Altogether, this is one of the tastiest seafood meals you’ll probably ever have. Just keep in mind that, as we said, this is a fancy restaurant and the potato “scale” fish is priced above $40.
