The 2015 All in WDW Epcot Food & Wine Festival FINAL Top 25! – #21 to 25

I just have to get back into Food & Wine, my friends!  After all, the festival is in full force.  In fact, I’m getting reports that each weekend day has been even more jam-packed than ever!

The “party” still has one month to run, and it’s well past time.  You’ve seen my Pre-Ranking.  I’ve gone to Disney and tasted the dishes.  Let’s take a look at the bottom of my Final menu!

Welcome to the 2015 All in WDW Epcot Food & Wine Festival FINAL Top 25!

Not-So Honorable Mention – Seared Venison Loin – New Zealand (Pre-Festival: 25)

Yeah, I’ve been very vocal regarding New Zealand’s deer.  I didn’t like it.  Hey, I’ve had plenty of venison before this!

I’ve tasted venison roast, venison sausage, and deer jerky.  I’m sorry.  It just didn’t taste good.  Bye-bye, Bambi.

25 – Grilled Sweet and Spicy Bush Berry Shrimp – Australia (Pre-Festival: 22)

Too sweet.  Plain and simple.  Spice it up a bit, Australia, and maybe you’d have a chance.

24 – Roasted Pork – Dominican Republic (Pre-Festival: 8)

Wow!  This one really fell down the charts.  The pork was kind of … tasteless.

It was Opening Weekend when I sampled it, I know.  But, Dominican.  You can’t do better?

23 – Layered Meat Pie with Mashed Yucca – Brazil (Pre-Festival: 19)

Like Dominican’s pork, I really felt that the meat in this pie lacked flavor.

It was simply lumpy mashed “potatoes” over meat.  Um, I think I could make that!

22 – Yuca Soufflé topped with Griddled Cheese – Dominican Republic (Pre-Festival: 23)

Honestly, Dominican should have dropped the Yuca and stuck with the cheese.

Seriously, the griddled cheese, itself, was outstanding!  The Yuca?  Not so much.

21 – New England Lobster Roll – Hops & Barley (Pre-Festival: Unranked)

A bonus item breaks into the Top 25, my friends!

Actually, if this roll held a bunch more lobster, it would have gained a much higher rank.  Very tasty, though.

There you go, folks.  That’s the first installment of my Final Top 25!  Come back tomorrow for the next ten items!
