Best Eats

Taco vampiro

No matter the festival, a dish from the Mexico booth always seems to make its way into our top eats, and the 2022 Flower and Garden Festival is no different! this year, Jardin de Fiestas has brought back our 2021 best eat — the Taco vampiro.

Taco vampiro

It is barbacoa beef in a corn tortilla with crispy grilled Monterey jack cheese, salsa ranchera, and esquites and costs $7.25. The beef is the real highlight of the dish here, but overall it’s filled with flavor!

Frushi

Frushi is BACK at the Hanami booth in the Japan Pavilion and it has wow-ed us once again! This Flower and Garden Festival classic is made with strawberry, pineapple, and cantaloupe wrapped in sweet rice and pink soy wrap one with whipped cream, berry sauce, and toasted coconut.

This booth is hosted by IMPOSSIBLE, so everything on the menu is plant-based. But, you won’t even be able to tell!

Corned Beef Brisket Hash

the Sunshine Griddle food booth is a consistent winner for us. This year, we loved the Corned Beef Brisket Hashwhich is made with house-made potato barrels, onions, peppers, cheese curds, and a soft-poached egg with Tabasco hollandaise.

Honestly, we loved pretty much everything at Sunshine Griddle, but the Corned Beef Brisket Hash really stood out! You can try it for $6.25.

New this year over in the China Pavilion is the Spicy mala chicken skewer for $6.75.

Spicy mala chicken skewer

This little chicken skewer is topped with a spicy sauce, sesame seeds, and green onions. Overall, this snack has a medium spice level, so keep that in mind before you order it from the Lotus House food booth.

the Cider House booth is serving a new BLT Scone that really surprised us (in a good way!!).

BLT Scone

The BLT Scone is made with Nueske’s applewood-smoked bacon, sundried tomato, and basil. Try it for $5!

Croissant au Fromage de Chevre, Herbes et Ail Rôtie

The France pavilion rarely disappoints during an EPCOT festival, and this year is no different! the new Croissant au Fromage de Chevre, Herbes et Ail Rôtie, has a long, fancy-sounding name, but all you need to know is that it’s a goat cheese croissant with herbs and roasted garlic. Oh yeah, and it’s amazing.

It may not look very pretty, but for $6.75this snack from the Fleur de Lys food booth is well worth it.

Tuna Tataki Bowl

the tuna Tataki Bowl is a returning dish made with spicy yuzu glaze, mango, avocado, and pappadam crisp for $6.25. You can find it at the Citrus Blossom booth.

Tuna Tataki Bowl

Our little tip for this snack is to try and get a bite with all the ingredients at once — it tastes best when you taste the sauce, tuna, avocado, and mango all together.
