Come along with us as we eat our way through the 2022 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival!
After checking out new merchandise and all the beautiful topiarieswe’re visiting the France pavilion to try several new dishes at Fleur de Lys!
The 2022 menu for Fleur de Lys has not one but THREE new dishes that we’re excited to try.
The dessert favorite Beignet caramelized is back, and new dishes include the Croissant au Fromage de Chevre, Herbes et Ail Rôtiethe Pan Bagnat Classiqueand the Salade de Lentilles a la Lyonnaise.
Let’s dig in!
First up, we tried the new Croissant au Fromage de Chevre, Herbes et Ail Rôtiewhich is a Croissant with Goat Cheese, Herbs, and Roasted Garlic for $6.75.
This eat has an awesome texture with a crispy buttery outside that makes way for a soft inside. It has a LOT of goat cheese in the middle. You could really smell the cheese and it worked well with the light herb and garlic.
Still, the biggest note here has gotta be the cheese so steer clear if you’re not a fan of goat cheese!
Next, we tried the new Pan Bagnat Classiquewhich is the Niçoise Sandwich with House-Made Bread, Albacore Tuna Mayonnaise, Tomato, Black Olives, Lettuce, and Celery for $7.
This was a pretty basic tuna sandwich. The bread was a typical French style and the fillings were tasty but we found this eat to be bland. It was filling, but not the most exciting thing we’ve eaten today.
This spot also has a NEW Salade de Lentilles a la Lyonnaise AKA French Green Lentil Salad with bacon and garlic sausage for $5.50!
Though this dish might not look the most appetizing, we love it! The garlic sausage was delicious and had a very strong flavor. Plus, the bacon mixed into the lentils helped them to almost have a baked bean-like flavor. We’d certainly snag this again!
And the Beignet caramélisé, fourré crème vanilla, ice cream au caramel fleur de sel is back this year for $5.50! In English, this is a carmelized beignet filled with vanilla cream and topped with a caramel glaze.
We LOVE this dish! It’s thicker than a typical beignetand the crystallized caramel glaze is incredible. It was a best of the fest item last year and we daresay it might make the cut again!
Now let’s check out the drinks!
This year, there are four drink options to choose from, including a French Wheat Draft Beer for $5 (6 ounces) or $9 (12 ounces)and the returning VeRy Raspberry: Rosé Wine with Natural Raspberry Flavor for $6. If you’re a fan of lighter beer or a fruity rosé, turn to these options!
The fan favorite La Vie en Rose Frozen Slush is also back for $13.50. This boozy slushy is made with Vodka, Gray Goose L’Orange Vodka, St. Germain Liqueur, and White and Red Cranberry Juice! If you’re a fan of the usual French slushies at EPCOT, you might want to give this a try.
And finally, we tried the NEW Grand Mimosa Cocktailmade with Orange Liqueur, Champagne, and Orange Juice for $14. We thought this was a pretty awesome and classic cocktail.
It pretty much tasted like an EXTRA strong mimosa and on such a warm day, it was pretty refreshing too!
So, how does this booth hold up?
Fleur de Lys once again stood out as a tasty booth for us! We’re typically fans of the festival offerings in France and this year lived up to our expectations. If you’re looking for a more unique eat — sweet or savory — chart a course for Fleur de Lys! And, if cocktails are a part of your festival plan, this might be a must-stop!
