REVIEW: We Try the NEW Space 220 Lunch Menu at EPCOT, Including Quinoa Burger and Steak & Frites

Space 220 Restaurant, which opened last fall at EPCOT, has an updated menu for the spring. We took the space elevator 220 miles up to try some of the new lunch items and check in on a couple of old favorites.

Appetizers

Starry Calamari

Fried Calamari, Italian Cherry Peppers, Spicy Marinara, Roasted Pepper Citrus Aioli

This remains a good appetizer option.

The breading is light and crisp. It’s seasoned just right. The calamari is cooked well and the peppers are nice and spicy.

The spicy marinara sauce isn’t anything special. As we observed last year, it’s like a tomato sauce with minimal spice. The red pepper and oils are prominent in the aioli. Both are decent sauces.

Blue Moon Cauliflower

Tempura Fried Cauliflower, Housemade Hot Sauce, Blue Cheese Dust

This is still delicious. It has a light and crispy breading.

The Buffalo sauce has a small kick.

There was a sprinkling of blue cheese on top.

This is a great appetizer we still recommend, and though the calamari is good, we prefer the cauliflower.

We ordered the steak medium rare and it was cooked fine.

The coffee rub is very interesting. It’s not quite savory but adds a unique flavor profile where it is lacking some salt, pepper, or actual seasoning. It’s more of a light coffee aftertaste than seasoning.

The chimichurri sauce is like blended cilantro with no other flavors. It’s pretty basic.

The fries are basic salted French fries.

There’s nothing special about this dish but it’s fine.

Quinoa Burger

Quinoa-Vegetable Burger, Baby Arugula, Tomato, Yellow Beet Citrus Mayonnaise VG

space 220 lunch entrees 4

This burger is interesting. It’s essentially a mix of black beans, carrots, broccolini, and quinoa, but the overpowering flavor is beans.

The bun is way too strong for the stability and texture of the quinoa patty. It started falling apart as soon as we tried to cut it. Taking a bite has the same effect and you’ll need a fork after a few bites.

The bun is buttered and toasted on the inside, which is nice. The arugula and spread don’t do anything for this.

This is a real miss. It’s like eating a patty entirely made out of black beans with zero seasoning.

The steak fries are a good size. They are crispy and well-salted.

The edges were a little too crispy, but they’re fine overall.

Overall

These two new entrées were subpar. They both lacked seasoning and we probably wouldn’t reach for them again. We love the appetizers, especially the cauliflower, though.

  1. Those fries look different than the standard skin on fries served around the rest of Disney world, meaning they look a lot better! Lol

  2. The fries on the steak & frites dish look terrible. Chef should be embarrassed to serve that. Steak looks nicely done though.
