Deconstructed BLT with Crispy Pork Belly, Tomato Jam and Soft Poached Egg – $7.00
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 tomato 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 Studdard (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 – $6.25
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.
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.
Imagery Sauvignon Blanc, Glen Ellen, California – $6.00
Imagery Estate Winery describes this as follows: “Subtle honeysuckle aromas gently perfume the nose. Vibrant notes of citrus, lemon-lime, and grapefruit play on the tongue as a hint of dry Muscat lends refinement and softness to the finish.”
Mad Genius Red Blend, California – $5.00
Mad Genius Wines describes this blend as “a proprietary blend of four red grape varietals of Syrah, Zinfandel, Tempranillo, and Merlot are exquisitely blended to appeal to every wine lover’s palate. Grapes harvested for Mad Genius are handpicked from premiere vineyards that surround regions of California’s Northern San Joaquin Valley along with specially selected North Coast Vineyards.”
Deconstructed Breakfast: Twinings® Spiced Apple Chai Tea Shake with Maple Bourbon Cream, a Waffle Crisp and Candied Bacon – $10.50
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).
