Welcome to a food studio review for the Epcot International Festival of the Arts, taking place in the park all week long from January 12th to February 19th, 2018. This review will cover “The Deconstructed Dish” Food Studio. Last year this booth was named “E=AT^2″, but serves the same items and a brand new dish.

Deconstructed BLT with Crispy Pork Belly, Tomato Jam and Soft Poached Egg – $6.75

This was my absolute favorite dish at entire Epcot International Festival of the Arts! Crack open the poached egg, dip the tender and juicy pork belly in it, and then nearly fall over from how good this is. There is very little bacon and lettuce here, and neither of them really add to the dish. I suggest you just push them aside and enjoy the pork and the egg together without any of the fluff of the dish.

Deconstructed Reuben with Shredded Corned Beef, Thousand Island Dressing, Pickled Red Cabbage and a Rye Curl – $6.50

If you haven’t gotten it already, this is the best booth at the festival. I hate reuben sandwiches. Hell, I even hate Reuben Stoddard (kids, look it up). Regardless, this was fantastic. Everything in the plate was delicious, which shocked me. I couldn’t believe that I was having quality corned beef at Disney World, but I was and I did.

Deconstructed Strawberry Cheesecake: Whipped, New York Style Cheesecake with Fresh Florida Strawberries and Sugar Cookies with Micro-basil $6.00

The best part about this booth is assembling the dish together with each forkful, and we think the strawberry shortcake best represents how great this idea can be. The strawberries are ripe with a simple glaze that’s spread across the dish making the flavor present among all the pieces. Slather your fork with the whipped cheese cake, grab a strawberry and munch on the sugar cookies all in one bite. It’s a fun dish and one we very much recommend.

REVIEW: "E=AT^2" Food Studio - Epcot International Festival of the Arts 2017

As much as we loved the food, we wanted so much more out of this drink. It sounded amazing. It wasn’t bad, the flavoring was just far more subdued that we had hoped for (and they went a little light on the bourbon).

Pop-Artsicle: Red, White and Blue Frozen Slushy (non-alcoholic) $4.00

This is realistically just a slushy, but the kids and/or your Instagram followers should enjoy it, granted it survives the trip to the Bubblegum Wall.

  • Almost everything at the booths look delicious (and very pretty). Can’t wait until I’m a part-time local some day (retired snowbird and artist) and can go in January/February to this festival.
