Our Favorite Eats at Each World Showcase Pavilion at Epcot

Eleven pavilions… twenty-two eats… what more could we ask for?! Epcot’s World Showcase is a foodies paradise because within just a few steps you’re in a totally different “country” – putting your taste buds in delicious mass confusion. Between table service restaurants, quick-service restaurants, and simple kiosks and carts – it’s time to put on your favorite stretchy pants and eat your way around the world. Check out our twenty-two favorite eats around Epcot’s World Showcase.





 

1 – Mexico

  • Empanada de Barbocoa @ Choza de Margarita
    • Look for the small thatched-roof hut near Mexico’s iconic pyramid which will likely have a lengthy line – that’s Choza! Multiple frozen and “on the rocks” margaritas are on the menu, but be sure to snack while you enjoy a drink. The Empanada de Barbacoa – empanadas filled with Barbacoa Beef, topped with Chipotle Sauce, Crema Mexicana, and Queso Fresco and served with a side of Corn Esquites is our top eat here. It’s just the right size for a snack and well.
  • Chocolate “Fiesta” Pyramid @ San Angle Inn Restaurante and La Hacienda de San Angel
    • During the 50th anniversary celebration, you don’t want to miss the Chocolate “Fiesta” Pyramid! This festively decorated Chocolate Pyramid is filled with Mexican Chocolate Mousse and Toffee atop a traditional Tres Leches Cake and accompanied by Ice Cream. Perfect for sharing.

2 – Norway

  • School Bread @ Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe
    • Kringla is mostly known for its yummy School Bread and Troll Horn and if we had to choose between the two, we would go for the School Bread! It’s a sweet roll filled with custard and dipped in coconut. Yummy!
  • Tradisjonell Kjottkake @ Akershus Royal Banquet Hall
    • Try spelling that one without looking it up! In simpler words – this delicious eat is the Norwegian Meatballs served at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. This one isn’t a quick eat, however, so be sure to make a lunch or dinner reservation to taste this plate. Served with Mashed Potatoes, Seasonal Vegetables, and Lingonberry Sauce – plus, you’ll get a chance to see multiple Disney Princesses which will greet you right at your table. It’s a win, win.

3 – China

  • Chicken Pot Stickers @ Nine Dragons Restaurant
    • Fried dumplings anyone? We simply can’t get enough of the Pot Stickers served at Nine Dragons. These Pan-fried Chicken and Vegetable Dumplings served with Soy Dipping Sauce should come with refills.
  • Caramel-Ginger Ice Cream @ Lotus Blossom Café
    • While you can also get Pot Stickers at Lotus Blossom, for some reason they taste better at Nine Dragons. Our pick for the best eat at Lotus Blossom goes to the Caramel-Ginger Ice Cream. We are ice cream fans, but this ice cream is definitely different… in a good way. The mixed flavors leave a superb pop of refreshing taste.

4 – Germany

  • Bratwurst @ Sommerfest
    • If you have the opportunity to dine at Germany’s table service restaurant, Biergarten, we highly recommend it. But if eating on a hurry, check out Sommerfest right next door. Of course, the Bratwurst makes our Germany list as it’s served on a freshly baked Roll with Sauerkraut and House-made Paprika Chips.
  • 50th Celebration Caramel Cupcake @ Karamell-Kuche
    • You’ll likely smell the wonderful aroma seeping out of Karamell-Kuche the moment you step foot into Germany. Get ready for caramel-filled treats galore! It’s impossible to pick just one treat but we’d have to say the 50th Celebration Caramel Cupcake tops our list. This is the perfect treat during the 50th-anniversary celebration!

5 – Italy

  • Gelato @ Gelateria Toscana
    • Italy equals Gelato, right?! Skip along to the Gelateria Toscana for some true Italian Gelato. Options include gelato in a cup or cone, floats, pastries, and gelato “creations.”
  • Pepperoni Pizza @ Via Napoli
    • You’re thinking – really, in all the eats around the World Showcase, you’re picking pizza? Absolutely! This is Italian Pizza we are talking about that comes out of a wood-burning stove. Tomato sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni… it may sound simple enough but it’s definitely going to take your pizza love to a new level.

 

6 – The American Adventure

  • Jumbo Turkey Leg @ Fife and Drum Tavern
    • Let’s get American real fast. Nothing screams American cuisine like a huge turkey leg in hand. So, go ahead… roll up your sleeves and bite into that turkey like a caveman. You’ll be surprised at just how large these jumbo legs are, so you may want to bring someone along to share.
  • North Carolina Chopped Smoked Pork Butt Platter @ Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drinks & Barbecue
    • The new Regal Eagle Smokehouse has some hits and misses, but we were pleasantly surprised by how much we liked the pork butt platter! Read our review here for more on this new quick-service restaurant in World Showcase.

7 – Japan

  • Tokyo Sushi Combo @ Katsura Grill
    • When in Japan one must try a Japanese cuisine favorite! Step on over to the quick service spot known as Katsura Grill to get your sushi fix. The Tokyo Sushi Combo comes with four California Rolls and three Nigiri.
  • Julienne Steak @ Teppan Edo
    • For Teppan Edo you’ll want to snag a reservation as it’s not only a great place for a meal but also very entertaining watching the Chefs work their magic! Our delicious go to eat here is the Julienne Steak. It’s thin-sliced beef strips with garden salad, udon noodles, vegetables, and steamed white rice. One “eat” we could eat endlessly!

8 – Morocco

  • Stone-baked Moroccan Bread with Dips @ Tangierine Café
    • As you can probably tell from this list, we typically prefer a good meat dish. There is something however about the Moroccan Bread that refreshes the palate. Stone-baked Moroccan Bread is swerved with Hummus, Zaalouk, and Zhoug Dips. Delicious!
  • Dessert Platter @ Spice Road Table
    • Views of the water and yummy food! Loads of fantastic Moroccan cuisine await, but a must-do eat while in Morocco is definitely the Dessert Platter. Just go ahead and start with dessert here as you’ll get to enjoy assorted Moroccan pastries.

9 – France

  • Macaroons @ Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie
    • Are you ready for this? No really – when you walk into Les Halles and see the display cases of all the treats, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed in the most wonderful way! You really can’t go wrong with anything you select. Our favorite eat in France however is the Macarons at Les Halles. Light with a crisp shell and filled with fresh raspberry and lime cream in every bite – you’ll want to get enough for the whole family so you don’t have to share.
  • French Onion Soup @ Chefs de France
    • Don’t skip the appetizers when dining at Chefs de France! One the menu, you’ll spot a classic – the French Onion Soup. When in France, you might as well dine as the French do!

10 – United Kingdom

  • Fish and Chips @ Yorkshire County Fish Shop
    • You already knew we were going to list this one for the United Kingdom, didn’t you?! We dare you to try to walk by Yorkshire without snacking on some of their delish food. The best eat here is no surprise… the Fish and Chips.
  • Shepard’s Pie @ Rose and Crown
    • British fare at its finest! Go ahead and make a dining reservation that coincides with Epcot’s nighttime spectacular to dine and watch the show all at once. The best eat here is the Shepard’s Pie with Ground Lamb and Beef, Seasonal Vegetables, English Peas, and Mashed Potatoes with McCall’s Irish Cheddar. YUM!

11 – Canada

  • Maple Popcorn @ Popcorn In Canada
    • In looking around Canada, there really aren’t many dining options. But, we will say we are surprisingly pleased with the Popcorn Cart. Sure, it has the regular Disney popcorn – but there is a Canadian twist! Check out the Maple flavored popcorn and you’ll feel like you’re right at home in Canada.
  • Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup @ Le Cellier Steakhouse
    • For this ever-so-popular eat, you’ll need dining reservations. The intimate and timeless Le Cellier Steakhouse is a memorable experience because the food is mouthwatering good. The favorite eat here goes to the Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup with Moosehead Pale Ale and Nueske’s Applewood-smoked Bacon. It screams “Oh, Canada!”

We have had a long time love affair with Disney. We love the magic and the memories we've made at Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with being Annual Passholders, Disney Vacation Club Members, and RunDisney participants. From lodging to dining to Genie+ we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us.
