We have already shared our deep love for Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival – which shouldn’t come as any surprise to any of our longtime readers by now. I mean, a festival dedicated to Food and Wine? They might as well rename the festival ‘David and Laura’s Epcot Dream’. All items at the festival are not created equal, however, and in our completely one sided, totally biased opinions, there are certain items you need to try for your Food and Wine Festival to be complete. We’re making a list of our top five items you need to try, to make it easier for you to eat and drink your way through the festival.
1. La Passion Martini Slush, France Booth
Guys, can we just take a moment to appreciate the frozen drinks that France churns out during festivals? This drink might not be on par with the La Vie En Rose from Flower and Garden, but it’s still phenomenal, and worth the almost ten dollar price tag.
2. “Le Cellier” Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon with Truffle-Butter Sauce, Canada Booth
Le Cellier is known for their steaks, and I’m known for my love of truffles. The combination of those two is an unbeatable combination.
3. Beijing Roasted Duck in a Steamed Bun with Hoisin Sauce, China Booth
I love Chinese food, and I love duck – this is a seriously good combination, with the spicy of the hoisin, the soft of the bun, and all the different flavors involved.
4. Kalua Pork Slider with Sweet and Sour Dole® Pineapple Chutney and Spicy Mayonnaise, Hawaii
This is a staple of the Food and Wine Festival. It has it’s raving fans, and we’re among them. I could have eaten several of them, if I wasn’t determined to save space for more food from the festival.
5. Frozen Mojito, Islands of the Caribbean
This drink is popular – like seriously popular. So popular that the machine was messing up and couldn’t freeze the drinks as fast as they were being sold. This is one of the best drinks of the festival though and should not be missed.
We totally understand that this is our completely one sided opinion and that everyone has their own opinion on what is a ‘must try’ at the Festival. We love our favorites (because they’re our favorites), and think you will too. But really, there are very few things at the Festival that you can go wrong with. We know you’ll love eating and drinking your way through the Festival as much as we did.
