I 'Ate Around The World' At Disney's EPCOT And These Were My Favorite Eats
Disney’s EPCOT is known for its exciting World Showcase, in which guests can explore country-themed pavilions featuring exhibits, souvenir shops, and international food. There are 11 different countries represented: Canada, Japan, Norway, Mexico, China, Germany, Italy, Morocco, France, the United States, and the United Kingdom.
The food was definitely what I was looking forward to most! EPCOT’s World Showcase has everything from quick-bite kiosks and cafes to casual dining establishments and upscale, full sit-down restaurants. My game plan was to mainly have smaller meals and snacks so I could eat from as many pavilions as possible. For the most part, I stuck to this plan and was able to cover a lot of ground. I “ate around the world” at Disney’s EPCOT and these were my favorite eats.
1. Canada - Seared Scallops with French Green Beans and Butter Potatoes
My first stop in the World Showcase was Northern Bloom, an outdoor kitchen located in the Canada pavilion. I ordered the seared scallops with French green beans, butter potatoes, brown butter vinaigrette, and apple-wood smoked bacon, which was $7.00.
2. United Kingdom - Fish and Chips
Yorkshire County Fish Shop in the United Kingdom pavilion is said to offer the finest British fare this side of the Pond. People rave about their savory battered cod, which is served with chips and tarter sauce and costs $12.99.
3. Morocco - Fried Calamari and Spice Road Table Sampler
After filling my stomach more than I had intended to, I had to take a short break from eating. By the time I was ready to go again, it was blazing hot and I found myself in dire need of some AC. I sought a sit-down restaurant where I could enjoy my next bites in comfort.
4. United States- Funnel Cake with Chocolate Sauce
I couldn’t pass up a summer classic from the funnel cake kiosk in the America pavilion. The stand offers different varieties and toppings depending on what time of the year you’re visiting.
5. Mexico - Taco Vampiro and Enchilada de Mole Negro
Mexico has one of my favorite cuisines, so I was not surprised to have enjoyed these two so much.
