My friends, I have to give my podcast-partner John Peters credit for this one. Why? Well, I said it a few days ago. Mrs. All in WDW and I usually walk right by the Morocco Pavillion!
A few months back, I was taking an evening solo stroll through World Showcase and found hunger on my mind. It was time for dinner, and I was in quest of Counter Service cuisine.
The Yorkshire County Fish Shop’s deliciously crispy Fish and Chips crossed my mind, but Mrs. All in WDW was back at the resort. It didn’t seem right to enjoy a portion without her.
Sunshine Seasons and Sommerfest, they seemed a little bit “been there, done that”. I checked out the Lotus Blossom Café’s menu. I wasn’t enticed. Hmm. What to do? Phone a friend!
One of John’s favorite – dare I say, “must do” – spots in Epcot is Morocco’s Tangierine Café. A quick call to him, and I knew just what to have!
Step into this charming Mediterranean eatery. It is known for its authentic shawarma platters. It delivers terrific flavor.
Enjoy the architecture and decor, folks, but feast on the food. You have to order the Shawarma Chicken and Lamb Platter! Served with hummus, tabouleh, couscous salad, and fresh Moroccan bread, it is fantastic!
A very under-appreciated pavilion, Morocco actually has a lot to offer visitors to Epcot’s World Showcase. Hey! Mrs. All in WDW and I are as guilty as most. We usually walk right by!
Anyway, what do they have to offer, you ask? Quite simply, my friends, it boasts amazing architecture, beautiful artwork, fantastic shopping, and food that is much better than one would expect!
We’ll be back in a couple of days with a delicious taste of some of that Moroccan cuisine, but, in the meantime, please click the picture below to join ResortTV1 for a full and exciting tour of Morocco!
An auditory taste, that is! Good afternoon, my friends! I caught this performance on a stroll through World Showcase a month or so ago, and I wanted to share. Please enjoy — the sights and sounds of Morocco!
Oh, there is no doubt in my mind that the best place to find quality beer at Walt Disney World is in Epcot’s World Showcase. With that in mind, in order from last to first, let’s tour through my “Hit List”.
11. Tsingtao – China – Very light. Not too flavorful.
10. Kronenbourg 1664 – France – Well, the French DO make great wine.
9. Casa Beer – Morocco – Another extremely light beer. Not bad on a hot day!
8. Modelo Especial – Mexico – This beer, I enjoy. Again, it is another solid, refreshing choice on a hot afternoon.
7. Birra Moretti La Rossa – Italy – France could learn something from Italy! The Italians are known more for their wine than their beer, but this is a great beer! A Doppelbock, it has a slight sweet taste with some nice caramel notes. Very nice!
6. Einstök – Norway – Actually, this beer is from Iceland. Getting past that, it’s another great choice! Nice and light, with a somewhat complex flavor profile, and some nice citrus notes, it is a fantastic brew!
5. Frozen Kirin – Japan – Take a look back … I’ve written about this one before. Yep! Take away my “Beer Geek” card, folks! By itself, Kirin is not all that good of a beer. Put a slushy top on it? I’m sold! Coldest beer in Epcot!
Love that slushy topping!
4. Golden Monkey – American Adventure – Lots of complex flavors in this one. I’ve tasted bananas, bubblegum, and cotton candy flavors. It’s pretty sweet and that hides the high alcoholic content. At 9.5% ABV, this is a great beer that you might be best limiting to one!
3. Schofferhofer Hefeweizen Grapefruit – Germany – Some of you will disagree with me on this choice. Grapefruit is blended with a Hefeweizen beer to deliver this refreshment. Honestly, most people either love this or hate it. Personally, I love it! You had best like grapefruit juice, fans!
Does “grapefruit beer” complement great German food? You bet, it does!
2. Innis & Gunn – United Kingdom – An absolute delight, friends! This beer is fantastic! After brewing, it’s cured in empty whisky barrels. That gives it its unique taste.
1. La Fin Du Monde – Canada – To those who know me, there’s no surprise here! This is my absolute favorite beer in all of Walt Disney World! La Fin is an extremely well-balanced Tripel. It boasts a nice, subtle fruity taste and delivers a unique yeasty finish. This one is another “hidden punch” beer, though. Complex flavors hide its high ABV (9%). Just be careful, folks!
Well, there! You have my list of beers from around the showcase. Have you tried them? Do you agree with my thoughts? I’d love to hear your comments – either, here, on this post or on social media!
Oh, by the way, please respond to the poll below. Which three (3) of these would you choose? VOTE, everyone! The more the merrier! Thanks for reading, and … cheers!
