Welcome to a food studio review for the Epcot International Festival of the Arts, taking place in the park Friday-Monday from January 13th through February 20th, 2017. This review will cover “El Artista Hambriento” (which translates to the Hungry Artist for those wondering) kiosk, which is located towards the Mexico pavilion in World Showcase, just before the bridge to La Cantina de San Angel.

Choriqueso Tacos – $6.95

I usually do not enjoy food or drink items from this booth (which has existed under different names at other Epcot festivals and remained standing with other options in-between the events), but these tacos were fantastic. Yes, it is a little on the ams size for the price, but these corn tortilla tacos covered in guacamole are just about perfect. This was one of, if not the best, food items we had at the entire event.

This dish wasn’t bad, but there’s no way to pick this up and utensils will have a hard time cutting through the flatbread. The steak was seasoned nicely, bit overall this was nothing special. For the price, this is actually one of the bigger festival entrees though.

Mandarin Ginger Margarita – $14.25

It’s hard to like a $14.25 margarita, but these margaritas were really fine. I’m still not entirely sure how they are getting away pricing these this way, but if you really want a margarita at Epcot, I’d choose the mandarin ginger flavor over the other option.

Passion Fruit Coconut Margarita – $13.75

I ordered this margarita over the other because I typically enjoy a good coconut-flavored alcoholic drink. That being said, I am also not adverse to passion fruit, but I think this one was just too sweet for me (including the cinnamon sugar rim). I got about half way through before trading this Josh who ordered the Mandarin Ginger Margarita (isn’t he sweet?). Again, if you can feel good getting a margarita at these prices, go for it.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price.

  • This event’s food and drinks look so good….it’s too bad I can’t go back there again until at least October. Some day when I’m either a local or when my kid is in college I can go this time of year. The Figment Art game looked fun, too.
