Take a look at some of the BEST foods from Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival 2018.

Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival 2018 is already mid-way through its run at Walt Disney World this year and the festival continues to offer an array of delicious food offerings, all of which can be found throughout Epcot’s World Showcase. Here is a look at some of those mouth-watering options.


Who doesn’t love to start with dessert? The Local Wildflower Honey-Mascarpone Cheesecake with Orange Blossom Honey Ice Cream garnished with Fennel Pollen Meringue Kisses is one of the festival’s sweeter offerings. Found at The Honey Bee-Stro, this toothsome option is great for anyone with a sweet tooth looking for a slice of cheesecake with that extra something! In this case, the extra something comes from those sweet little meringue kisses.

Nothing is better than a juicy hot dog! Especially when that dog is garnished with only the finest toppings, including pineapple chutney, spicy sriracha sauce, and plantain chips. Located in the Pineapple Promenade, the Spicy Hot Dog with Pineapple Chutney is a sensational rework of the classic frank.

This is something will bring some spice to your life! The Spicy Blackened Shrimp and Cheddar Cheese Grits with Brown Gravy and local sweet corn relish is full of flavor and packs a nice kick. Found at Florida Fresh, this dish is a great offering for any seafood fan, especially for someone looking for a new take on the classic cheddar cheese grits.

BBQ lovers beware, this next option will have your stomach rumbling. The Pulled Pig Slider with coleslaw is full of flavor, as it is made with only the most tender and delicious pulled pork. The addition of the coleslaw gives the small bite a nice finish and when paired with a brioche bun, it makes for the perfect nibble on-the-go. You can find this at The SMOKEHOUSE: Barbecue and Brews.

This next dish is inspired by the Caribbean, specifically from the island of Jamaica! The Jamaican-braised Beef with Pigeon Pea Rice and Micro Cilantro is a flavorful option featuring savory beef and rice, which come together to make a delicious and simple offering. Found at La Isla Fresca, this offering will transport you to the island life, especially with its jamming-Jamaican beef!

For another dish that combines the flavors of the sea and the farm, look for the House-made Potato and Cheddar Cheese Biscuit with Smoked Salmon Tartare. Located at Cider House, this dish is a fun offering for anyone looking for a quick-bite dish, especially if you love cheese! Be mindful, the cheddar biscuit isn’t overwhelming with flavor, but this bite’s smoked salmon tartare really brings life to this handheld.

Now it’s time for some berry goodness! The Freshly Baked Lemon Scone with Crème Fraiche and Mixed Berries is packed with a sweetness that will overwhelm your taste buds. The lemon scone is a delight by itself, but when paired with the Crème Fraiche and mixed berries, this dish will take your taste buds to new heights of deliciousness. You can find this berry-tastic dish at Cider House.

All of these delightful foods are now available at Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, so head over before it ends May 28.
