Epcot International Food and Wine Festival Part 1

Overall Best Dishes of the Night:

Ricotta and Zucchini Ravioli, Loaded Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Banana Almond Soft-serve Sundae

Light Lab

Glownut—Limited Time Only

Reasonably priced ($3.00), very large normal glazed doughnut. Great to split with the family!! Sprinkles and icing glowed in the neon light of the room. Nothing special in terms of flavor.

Earth Eats

Ricotta and Zucchini Ravioli

Great flavor in marinara with large pieces of zuchinni in ravioli.

Grilled Beef Skewers

Also, great flavor but meat cooked well done so a bit tough. Salad was good but didn’t compliment flavor of beef.

Active Eats

Loaded Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Delicious and packed with flavor!!

Roasted Verlasso Salmon

Texture of salmon was dry but chimichurri sauce was rich and enjoyable. The quinoa salad was the highlight of this dish.

Coastal Eats

Baked Shrimp Scampi dip

Had good flavor but texture wasn’t there so dish was average at best.

Seared scallops

Scallops cooked very well and was well balanced with vegetables and chili-chipotle sauce.

Erath Pinot Gris

Was light and refreshing.

Flavors of Fire

Piggy Wings

Pretty damn good! Better than Sweet Pancake

Sweet Pancake

Sausage was good. Dish had a nice kick. Pancake was cornmeal based not potato based as expected.

The Almond Orchard

Banana Almond Soft-serve Sundae

Fantastic!!! Very light and refreshing for a hot night. However, didn’t notice any banana. One of best priced items of the night.

Thailand - NOT A DO OVER!!!

Marinated Chicken

Average. Chicken and vegetables were tender. Had a lot of peanut pieces.

Red Hot Spicy Thai Curry Beef

Needed more heat. Bit disappointing. Tasted like a Lean Cuisine meal.
