The 2019 edition of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival ran from late August until late November and presented its visitors with countless dishes and drinks from all over the world. Some of the foods were an instant success, but that wasn’t quite the case for all of them. Here are five dishes that were considered incredible, mouthwatering necessities for anyone who goes…
Ropa Vieja Empanada
Found at the Islands of the Caribbean booth, this Cuban-style dish is simply hands down the best bite at the festival. The braised beef meat is wrapped in savory and flaky pie dough and topped with tomato aioli. It’s so good that you won’t get enough of it and will keep craving for it for months to come.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Italy booth made its way into the limelight with pasta. However, this dish may be too much for carbonara purists who like to keep things traditional. The sauce is cream-based and is as delicious as the classic egg yolk sauce. The pasta has eye-catching gold hues and the ideal thickness for containing all the cheese. It is egg-enriched and coupled with bacon, which adds extra flavor and makes the dish more savory.
Warm Chocolate Pudding with Irish Cream Custard
Every food aficionado knows that the Epcot festival wouldn’t be complete without a plethora of mind-blowing desserts, and the warm chocolate pudding with Irish cream custard at the Ireland booth is without a shadow of a doubt the crown jewel in the menu. It is the rich, gluttonous molten chocolate cake that everybody adores. A creamy liqueur glaze only makes things better.
Madras Red Curry
Any vegetarian would instantly fall in love with the Madras red curry at the India booth. Like any tasty curry, it’s seasoned with just enough salt and packed with a myriad of spices that are a delight for the senses. The crisp-tender cauliflower is the focal ingredient in the dish, and it is fabulous.
Black Pepper Shrimp with Garlic Noodles
The China booth won countless visitors with this flavourful dish. The shrimp is flawlessly cooked and very tender, whereas the bed of spicy noodles is a masterpiece of its own. You won’t regret Indulging yourself in it.
The Epcot food festival is an amazing experience for the senses, so make sure to try as many new things as possible and enrich your diet.
