Spend a day discovering the freshness and color of the foods offered at the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival Outdoor Kitchens as they are sure to tempt your palate.
If you enjoy a variety of beverages then you will have plenty to choose from at the World Showcase Outdoor Kitchens. Frozen drinks are a personal favorite and the Twining’s Green Tea Berry Mint Julep can be found at The Berry Basket. This beautiful drink is available with, or without, alcohol and is absolutely delicious. If Margarita’s are your beverage of choice then you must try the colorful Elderflower Pineapple Margarita and the Hibiscus Margarita from Jardin De Fiestas. If you are a Beer drinker then you may want to try a Beer Flight from The Smokehouse: Barbecue and Brews Outdoor Kitchen at the America Pavillion.
If you are a small plates, main meal, kind of person then you are in luck. La Isla Fresca offers some amazing choices from Sugar Cane Shrimp Skewer and Jamaican-braised Beef, to Caribbean Conch Salad. If you enjoy Lamb Chops then The Berry Basket is the Outdoor Kitchen for you. Northern Bloom is offering delicious Beef Tenderloin Tips and Seared Scallops with Fresh Green Beans.
