This blog post may be my hardest to do because narrowing down my top 5 places to eat in Epcot is hard with all of the dining options Epcot has. Another reason is that I tend to eat at the same place every time. World Showcase has 11 different nations represented along with a stand dedicated to Africa, and each has dining options. Some pavilions have more than two. That doesn’t even include the dining choices outside of World Showcase, but I think I have narrowed it down.
Disclaimer: Like I said in the other blogs in this series these are my opinions and based on my thoughts and experiences.
My Top 5 Places to Eat in Epcot
1. Tangierine Cafe (Quick Service-Morocco Pavilion)
Now this one is an interesting pick because this was where I was introduced to Mediterranean food, which is one of my favorite types of foods to eat. The sad thing is it isn’t the restaurant it was since the pandemic closers. Currently, it is a stand at the festivals without its full glorious menu. It is also in the Morocco pavilion which is one of my favorites. I pray that it comes back to its full menu someday because I would have lunch there every time I am in Epcot.
2. Yorkshire County Fish Shop (Quick Service- UK Pavilion)
I love good fish and chips, and that’s what you are going to get at this location. I am not a big beer drinker but you can get them there too. The only downside is it is a stand so the seating situation. But the food makes it all worth it. If you like fish and chips I highly recommend this place.
3. Karamell-Küche (Bakery- Germany Pavilion)
I have a very big sweet tooth so this place is like heaven for me. You walk in and the smell of caramel welcomes you so sweetly (pun intended). There are many treats there that are famous from cupcakes to the popular gingerbread caramel sandwich cookie. My absolute favorite is the caramel corn. You can get it fresh for a great snack or packaged for a snack to enjoy once you come home.
4. La Cantina de San Angel
You are going to find that most blogs in this series are going to mention some kind of Mexican food. I love Mexican food. Give me all the guacamole and sour cream, please. Depending on how busy the park is you can find seats on the covered decks on the World Showcase Lagoon. It is a great spot for fireworks if you time it right as well. Also if you like churros it has a churro sundae that is fave and hits the spot after a long Epcot day.
5. Epcot Festivals Food
I have to admit that it was hard to pick my top 5 places to eat in Epcot because I do most of my Epcot dining at the many food booths offered at one of the four festivals held at Epcot each year. The for festivals are:
- Festival of the Arts
- Flower and Garden Festival
- Food and Wine Festival
- Festival of the Holidays
The festivals are not just about food, but the various booths are the stars for me. I always do two Epcot days on my Disney trips so I can eat at all the places I want to. This is usually where I do lunch and dinner. These booths have smaller portions which allow you to try food from around the world at affordable prices. Some of the booths are hit or miss but some tend to shine for me on every trip
