Goshiki debuted at last year’s EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, and we were delighted with most of what the menu had to offer, including an adorable version of Taiyaki. Let’s see if they can impress us again this year!

This is a cute idea. You get to make your own stone garden.

The “stones” come in a separate plastic cup.

You can use a fork as a rake and place the stones however you want. The sweet red bean mousse has a flavor not far from cookies and cream, and the chocolate pieces complement it well along with the salty pebbles. It’s fun and tastes good!

Sushi Donut: Donut-shaped Sushi featuring Salmon, Tuna, Shrimp, Cucumber and Sesame Seed over a decorated plate of Wasabi Aïoli, Sriracha and Eel Sauce – $8.25

This was quite decent for theme park sushi, to be honest, and in fact it’s better than half the sushi restaurants in Orlando. However, there’s nothing special to it besides the shape, so we’d suggest saving your money for the more unique festival offerings.

Vegetable Gyoza: Vegetable-filled Spinach Gyoza with Tofu atop Mashed Potatoes with a Kamaboko Fish Cake, Pepper Strings and Tonkatsu Teriyaki Sauce – $6.00

This dish was interesting, to say the least. Separately, the mashed potatoes were pretty good, but the combination of everything in that dish just didn’t work well together. There are a lot of flavors going on that seem to just not belong; we’d recommend skipping this one.

Masu Sake in a Traditional Personalized Wooden Cup – $12.50

Masu Sake in a Personalized Wooden Cup $10.00

Masu Sake in a Personalized Wooden Cup $10.00
Masu Sake in a Traditional Personalized Wooden Cup – $12.50

It’s a souvenir and a sizeable drink all in one. You really do get a wooden cup, which the Cast Members are more than happy to personalize with your name written in Japanese on the side. The sake was your average sake, but it was ladled into the wooden cup from a huge barrel. A really unique experience, something only Festival of the Arts can pull off.

This is a sweet sake that’s nice to have with sushi, but may be too sweet for some.
