The 2017 inaugural Epcot International Festival of the Arts opened this weekend. Food kiosks have become popular and are a staple of any Epcot Festival. Now in its first year, the Epcot International Festival of the Arts presents fun and artistic foods at food kiosks around World Showcase.
As you enter Epcot, be sure to pick up your Guidemap, Times Guide, and Festival Passport. Your guidemap will help you navigate the World Showcase to find the food kiosks as all restaurants and food kiosks are noted in the Legend of the map with a fork and knife enclosed in a purple circle. The Times Guide will help you find complimentary seminars such as Watermelon Carving and Tea Discovery. Your Festival Passbook will assist you with checking off foods you have tried, and others you hope to try on your next visit.
As you enter the World Showcase from Future World, and turn right to head towards Canada, you will see the Decadent Delights food kiosk. The menu features such items as the popular Artist Palette Jumbo Chocolate-Chip Cookie and the Deconstructed Purple Sweet Potato Pie. The kiosk did not have any of the Purple Sweet Potato Pies when they opened at 11:00am so I have placed that on my list of food items to try next weekend.
The Masterpiece Kitchen, at the Canada Pavilion, boasted a line at 11:30am for their food menu items. The Smoked Salmon Tartare looked delicious and the Mickey & Pluto White Chocolate Art Painting was adorable. The most popular menu choices were the Charcuterie Palette and the White Chocolate Puzzle. I have added the Charcuterie Palette to my list of must-try-foods for my next visit to the Epcot International Festival of the Arts.
The Japan Pavilion food kiosk is featuring Futomaki Sushi. This particular food choice is appetizing just by the colors alone. The pink soy wrap encasing the Sushi adds to the presentation of this delectable dish.
The American Pavilion hosts The Artist’s Table food kiosk. The Roasted Pork Roulade was tender and seasoned to perfection. The Callebaut Belgian Sipping Chocolate Flight was simply magnificent. The melted chocolate was very warm and smooth. If you enjoy chocolate this is a must-try item for your list. The Pan Seared Scallop was the most popular menu item and the team at The Artist’s Table were hard-pressed to keep up with the demand for this flavorful dish.
The Cuisine Classique food kiosk is located near the Germany Pavilion. The Braised Beef Short Rib was the most requested food item at this kiosk. The beef was tender and full of flavor. This particular dish was accented with Broccolini and Baby Tomatoes.
The Painter’s Palette, located inside the Odyssey Festival Showplace building, features some popular choices. More than half of the people in line were waiting for the Trio of Savory Croissant Doughnuts. They look like bagels to me and I was told by guests that they are more airy. Each Doughnut is filled with a savory combination of ingredients. I have added this to my must-try list on my next visit to the Festival of the Arts. The Margherita Flatbread is what you would expect for a Flatbread option. The basil pesto really makes this dish.
The E=AT2 offers some familiar foods with an artistic twist. The Classic Reuben, Cobb Salad, and BLT are sure to be a hit . The POP Eats food kiosk is clearly a take on Pop Art, and Pop Tarts, with their artistically created Pop’t Art sugar cookie option. We have also added this particular item to our must-try list on our next visit.
If you enjoy coffee drinks, then the Joffrey’s kiosks are what you will be looking for. Joffrey’s offers Passport Specialty Beverages at each of their locations. Can you say Dreamy Bourbon?
Epcot’s food kiosks have certainly become quite popular. We see them for basically every special event offered at this park. While there are not as many food kiosks as what we are used to with the annual Epcot Food and Wine Festival, they have enough on offer to grab the interest of your flavor palate. The Artist Palette Jumbo Chocolate-Chip Cookie is featured at many of the food kiosks and is a popular item amongst the guests.
Food presentation and preparation are truly an Art form. The Chef’s have put together some beautiful dishes for us to purchase at the food kiosks of the Epcot International Festival of the Arts. Even the name of each food kiosk is somehow reminiscent of Artists. We look forward to sampling additional food items over the course of the next five weeks, as the Epcot International Festival of the Arts presents fun and artistic foods at its World Showcase food kiosks.
