REVIEW: New Stir-Fried Chicken and Mediterranean Flatbread Debut at Sunshine Seasons in EPCOT
Our taste buds have been getting a workout lately at EPCOT. Not only has the Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival kicked off, offering a variety of dishes from around the world, but there are now new offerings at Sunshine Seasons in The Land Pavilion!
Joining the menu are a Stir-fried Chicken and Mediterranean Flatbread, adding new options for the lunch and dinner crowds. We were impressed when they debuted The Land Crusher sandwich back in September, so we have high hopes for these items. Let’s dive right in!
Stir-fried Chicken – $11.59
Stir-fried Chicken with Teriyaki Chicken, Peppers, Onions, Pineapple, and a Tangy Sweet-and-Sour Sauce.
This dish is made with teriyaki chicken stir-fried with vegetables in a tangy sweet-and-sour sauce, served over white rice.
This had a sweet taste similar to orange chicken and was slightly spicy. The chicken came in generous chunks, which made it heartier. It was well-cooked, cutting apart very easily.
The vegetables were fresh, and the carrots and peppers still had a little crunch, which was nice. This was a very tasty dish, and it’s one we would definitely get again.
Mediterranean Flatbread – $11.49
Flatbread with Roasted Chicken, Pickled Onions, Olives, Red Peppers, and Goat Cheese served with Pasta Salad.
This flatbread is Mediterranean-themed topped with roasted chicken, pickled onions, olives, red peppers, and goat cheese. It’s also served with side of pasta salad.
This dish proved to be another winner. The dough was crispy on the edges, but not overcooked. The toppings were really fresh, providing a great medley of flavor. It had a little zing to it which lingered, but it wasn’t overly spicy (less spicy than the Stir-fried Chicken, anyway), so hopefully, it shouldn’t deter people with more sensitive palates. The pasta salad that it came with helped cool the whole thing down.
The chicken was nicely seasoned and seemed to be the source of some of the heat. The peppers and olives seemed not to be as fresh as some of the other toppings, but everything was still very good.
This is another one we’d get again. This flatbread is a great option for those with more discerning palates at Sunshine Seasons.
The accompanying pasta salad was pretty basic, but still very good. It tasted quite fresh, with the vegetables crunchy, like they should be. It’s nothing overly special, but this simple pasta salad still manages to hit the spot.
Overall, these items offer hefty portions at a reasonable price. We’re very happy with these menu additions, which help solidify Sunshine Seasons’ status as a great counter-service option.
