Menu for El Artista Hambriento at the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts
🆕 Huarache Verde: Cilantro Huarache with Cochinita Pibil, Fresh Pineapple and Pickled Onion – $7.50
Festival dishes should be interesting and unique, but this is just carne asada over a grilled, cold slab of cheese. The beef is fine, tender, and juicy, with a charred exterior, but this isn’t interesting enough to be worth this price.
Taco de Chocolate: Chocolate Candy Shell filled with Mexican Chocolate Mousse with a touch of Chile topped with Seasonal Fruit – $6.50
This was sadly forgettable. The generic chocolate cream was covered with a fine chocolate shell. It tasted like something out of a box in your grocer’s freezer. And for the price, you’re probably better off shopping for it there.
Mexican Craft Beer: Tulum Artisanal Lager (4.0% ABV) crafted with Citrus notes and made with Mexican Caribbean Seawater – $10.00
The only good reason to wait in line here. A light lager with a distinct saltiness from the seawater and a light hint of citrus throughout. A rare beer worth ordering if you want to try it.
