This year promises to be a banner year. Let me give you a spoon taste of what’s next to come: Disney has added three more places into the venues around the World Showcase Lagoon. And, the “old” participant countries are changing their menus to showcase delicacies only found on their land.
For example, look at this “new” places:
Portugal -> it will offer a wine bar and also calamari salad with olives and smoked paprika…if that doesn’t sound yummy, you don’t know what you’ll be missing!
The Caribbean -> a plate that is synonymous to comfort food to the Hispanics, Ropa Vieja or many called it carne mechada (shredded meat) over rice, jerk spiced chicken drumstick…and who wouldn’t want to join it with a Frozen Rock Coconut Mojito (I heard that! I can feel your mouth is just waiting for this one!). this and many of the drinks in this stand will be sponsored by Bacardi, so you know is going to be delicious!
Hawai’i -> it will offer a plate that I am waiting to taste that is called tuna poke (poe-kay) with seaweed and kalua pork sliders (kalua is a bbq method used to cook the pork in the big island). And a drink to boot is this one, Seven Tiki Mai Tai, oh lordy lord just the thought of savoring a sip of this drink makes my mouth tickling with awesomeness!
And you cannot go wrong with some “old” favorites like going to Mexico in La Cava Tequila Bar, which offers one of my favorite sets which is the tequila tasting tray that brings like 6-different tequilas, it is to die for!
I tell you, cant wait to come with my friends and family to this incredible exposure of culture, culinary delicacies, and party-like atmosphere. This promises to be one festival not to be missed! Don’t forget is in Epcot in Disney between September and November. The international food and wine festival.
