Grilled Lamb Kefta and Grapes with Julienne of Euro Cucumber, Red Pepper, Pickled Pearl Onions, Harissa and Cilantro Dressing – $7.00

And the award for the smallest dish ever served at an Epcot Festival goes to… this.

It was good, but look at the size of it. I can’t in good conscience tell you to pay $7.00 for this, no matter how it tastes. End of story.

Confit of Chermoula Chicken Drum with Cinnamon Granny Smith Apple, Toasted Almonds, Brussels Sprouts and Pinot Noir Syrup – $7.00

Again, $7 is a lot for a chicken drum, but this was quite good. I can’t recommend it, but I don’t think you would be unhappy with it if you were to have it. The Brussels Sprouts were quite good, but not Polite Pig good.

Triangle Honey Briwat with Almond Paste, Rose Water and Toasted Sesame Seeds – $4.00

These were just about the driest food item I have ever eaten. They were so dry that I can’t even discern what flavor there was supposed to be.

The Andalusian “Poinsettia” Cocktail: Sparkling Wine, Orange Liqueur and Cranberry Juice topped with Orange Blossom Water – $8.00

This is light and easy to drink, so it’s highly recommended for sparkling wine lovers out there.

Walnut Spiced Coffee with Walnut Liqueur, topped with Cinnamon and Whipped Cream – $7.00

I love alcoholic coffee drinks and this was one of my favorites that I’ve had at Walt Disney World. It’s a sizable pour and the flavors are mixed perfectly, offering a bitter coffee offset nicely with walnut and cinnamon flavors, as well as the sweet whipped cream. Probably my favorite drink at the entire event. You may want to pick a nice, cool day to enjoy this though…
