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
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.
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.
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.
Baked Shrimp Scampi dip
Had good flavor but texture wasn’t there so dish was average at best.
Scallops cooked very well and was well balanced with vegetables and chili-chipotle sauce.
Erath Pinot Gris
Was light and refreshing.
Flavors of Fire
Pretty damn good! Better than 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!!!
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.
