REVIEW: Spicy Githeri Returns to the Refreshment Outpost for the 2023 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival

Those looking to enjoy a healthy vegan dish that’s packed with spice should head over to the Refreshment Outpost during their visit to the 2023 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. While this isn’t a new dish to be featured at the festival, there’s a reason that it keeps returning, as it’s delicious and friendly for plant-based guests!

The flavor palate in this dish is similar to chili. It’s a nice-sized dish for the price, making it one of the better vegan options at the festival. The chili flavor does permeate all the vegetables, and it would be nice if they had a flavor of their own. The vegetables are limp instead of crunchy, and the dish is a bit spicy. It’s particularly cumin-heavy. While there’s nothing necessarily wrong with this dish, we’d simply rather head to Sanaa for African-inspired food, and enjoy other options for the festival.

*NEW* Gulf Stream Brewing Co. Cloud 9 Watermelon Hibiscus Lager, Ft. Lauderdale, FL (4.3% ABV) – $11.25

From Gulf Stream Brewing Co.: “Fruity, floral, crisp and refreshing. A few sips of this delicious beer and you’ll be floating on a cloud!”

*NEW* Ciderboys Mango Tango Hard Cider, Stevens Point, WI (5.0% ABV) – $11.25

From Untappd: “It takes two to tango. In this case, it’s apple and mango! Sliced, diced and everything nice goes into Mango Tango, the perfect fusion of sun-ripened apple and succulent mango. Sweet tropical notes dance on your taste buds. It’s tango time!”

*NEW* North Coast Brewing Co. PranQster Golden Ale, Fort Bragg, CA (7.6% ABV) – $11.25

From North Coast Brewing Co.: “Belgian Ales represent the height of the brewers’ art. Sophisticated brewing techniques, yeast blends, and unique flavoring elements have elevated the beers of Belgium to the status enjoyed by wine in other countries. PranQster follows in this tradition using a mixed culture of antique yeast strains that produce a floral nose, a full fruity flavor, and a clean finish.”
