“The World’s” Best Garlic Shrimp? It’s Spice Road Table!

Happy Friday, everyone!  I feel like it’s “Doug Davis Week” on the web site, my friends!

After yesterday’s nautical tribute to Skipper Doug’s Sassagoula River Cruise, we return, today, with one of his all-time favorite Disney dishes!  Where can it be found, you ask?

Spice Road Table.  Found on the edge of World Showcase Lagoon and across from Epcot’s Moroccan Pavilion, it’s an unheralded Table Service restaurant.

Oh, I’ve definitely been pretty critical of the place.  At first, Mrs. All in WDW and I really enjoyed their service and cuisine.

Their Mix Grill Skewers are (were?) phenomenal, for example.  It was the venues entry into the Disney Dining Plan and massive price inflation of those skewers that drove us away, however.

Undeterred, though, Doug continues, to this day, to coax us back for what he feels is their very best dish.  It is something that he always aims to have when he visits “The World” – Spicy Garlic Shrimp!

Sautéed shrimp with dried chilies and fried garlic, Doug swears by the absolute “delicious-ness” of this Mediterranean delight.  It is a $10.99 small plate, and he’d say it’s worth every penny.

Of course, the shrimp isn’t all he’d recommend.  Served, here, with a single Lamb Slider, we find another morsel on his “to-do” list – Hummus Fries!

You can buy the fries, alone, as a $8.99 small plate or, of course, sample them with Spice’s sliders.  Buy a plate of three of those for $24.99.

In closing, I’ll say this … Doug has never steered Mrs. All in WDW and I wrong.  That being the case, I guess we’ll have to give Spice Road Table another chance.  Shrimp and fries?  Here we come!

Note: my thanks to avid WDW Main Street listener and All in WDW reader – Judith – for pictures of the shrimp, lamb, and fries!
