Debuted in 2017, the Loaded Greek “Nachos” are still a lot of food—and vegetarian friendly. A healthy portion of onions, olives, meatless sausage crumbles (that taste like real sausage!) and more top what’s also a healthy portion of pita chips. This is a unique item that screams Food & Wine festival. If you’re with a group, this is an easy dish to share.

Last year, the “Taste of Greece” dish had grape leaves, which honestly didn’t keep very well in the booth before being served. Fortunately, they’ve remedied the problem with a more robust offering in 2018. While the feta cheese is listed as a dip with the warm pita, it more surrounds the entire pita, making for one large bite—or a few forkfuls. The chicken souvlaki is rather tasty and easy to eat from the stick, but the star here is the lamb sausage. There’s just enough tomato ragu on top to bring out the flavors from the lamb, which isn’t overpowered by the few sprigs of dill garnish. The dish is a culinary adventure, but the portions are almost too small to even share.

Spanakopita: Greek Spinach Pie (V) – $4.50

Flaky puff pastries filled with cheese and spinach, and served warm, yields to a crunchy and satisfying bite. While they’re not the most exciting thing at the festival, we believe your family will enjoy this classic Greek dish.

This tastes more like it belongs in Germany than in Greece. That’s not a bad thing though. The warm phyllo dough plays well with the sweet custard packed inside, and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon unifies the dish. The Greece booth knows how to make flaky pastries, and this is a really great option for a dessert.

Wine Flight – $6.50

Wine Flight, $6.50: Domaine Skouras Moscofilero, Peloponnese ($22/bottle); Domaine Sigalas Assyrtiko, Santorini ($23/bottle); Argyros Atlantis Red Blend, Santorini ($15/bottle)

Wine and beer flights are a smart choice at the Epcot festivals. Instead of spending money on larger pours, opt for the flight to try more at one sitting (or sipping). If you really like something, go back and get a glass. The bottles aren’t expensive or difficult to find, but they’re also not particularly mind-blowing, either. Still, it’s a nice way to try three distinctive wines.

  • Taste like it should be in Germany??! Sorry but obviously aren’t aware of Greek pastries. They also have another pastry called yalaktobouriko that is very similar to this. Definitely a Greek delight🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷
