Spicy Mala Chicken Skewer with Creamy Peanut Sauce – $6.75
The chicken was a little dry, but the sauce was spicy and sweet. This had a real spicy kick and we liked it, but each bite had a different taste, giving it a somewhat inconsistent palate. Overall, it’s still a decent option.
House-Made Cheesy Crab Wontons – $7.75
The wontons are fine, but they didn’t have a lot of crab. You get two wontons for the price, and they’re pretty tasty, so if you’re in the mood for these, we wouldn’t discourage it.
*NEW* Pan-Fried Vegetable Dumplings – $5.25
While the presentation of this dish is pretty, that’s the only compliment we can give it. The top of a dumpling should be crunchy, but this was basically a rock. It was incredibly hard to cut through and resembled what we think chewing plastic is probably like.
It’s vile. It’s tough. The flavor isn’t good. This is probably one of the worst dishes we’ve had. If you’re looking for something similar, we recommend the spring rolls from the quick service in this pavilion.
Classic Bubble Milk Tea (Non-Alcoholic) – $7.75
This milk tea is fantastic. It’s sweet, but not overly so, and the boba pearls provide a licorice-like flavor to counter the milk. It’ll certainly help with anything spicy!
Kung Fu Master: Tito’s Vodka ($17/bottle), Triple Sec, Mango, Orange Juice and Soda Water – $14.50
The China pavilion has two things going for it: Nine Dragons, and heavy pours. Whether it’s the drinks from The Joy of Tea booth or their festival booth, the pours are always large and in charge. The Kung Fu Punch highlights and exploits this by being a drink that tastes very alcohol-forward and feels boozy. It’s a bright, semi-sweet, flavorful drink. with a nice fruity flavor. It clearly has an orange flavor, though some in our crowd thought it tasted like peach. This was a crowd favorite. The price to have a solid drink like this isn’t a horrible deal, especially at EPCOT.
Tang Dynasty: Jose Cuervo Especial Tequila Gold ($18/bottle), Light Rum, Strawberry, Piña Colada Mix, Soda Water and White Boba Pearls – $13.75
This was beyond weird. We couldn’t taste any alcohol. Zero. None. It tasted like a fruity seltzer with boba in it, which isn’t necessarily bad. At this price, you would probably want to taste some alcohol. Hopefully, this dynasty doesn’t last too long.
*NEW* Tropical Moon: Smirnoff Vodka ($11/bottle), Triple Sec, Passion Fruit, Soda Water and White Boba Pearls – $13.75
Due to the color, it may be difficult to see, but there are boba pearls in this drink. However, the boba in this drink is unlike any others that we’ve had before, it’s almost like these were soft. And not in a good way. The texture resembled jello. Beyond that though, this drink was refreshing and the taste was pretty good. If you can overlook the weird boba pearls, we actually really enjoyed this.
