Spiced Beef with Pine Nuts and Dried Cherries, Hummus and Pita Chips – $8.00

Hummus Trifle: Layered Hummus topped with Spiced Beef, Pine Nuts and Dry Cherries, served with Pita Chips $9.00
Spiced Beef with Pine Nuts and Dried Cherries, Hummus and Pita Chips – $8.00

The layered hummus was quite good, especially when dipping the pita chips into the mixture. Unfortunately you only receive a small portion of pita chips, leaving the rest of the layered hummus to be eaten by finger or fork. It’s about $2 overpriced, but even then there’s nothing amazing you’re missing if you skip this item.

Mediterranean Flatbread with Zaatar, Olive Oil Artichoke, Olives, Mozzarella and Feta Cheese – $8.00

Mediterranean Flatbread with Zaatar, Olive Oil Artichoke, Olives, Mozzarella and Feta Cheese – $8.00

Eight dollars gets you half a quick service flatbread loaded with vegetables including tomatoes and olives. This flatbread was good, especially with the folks in our group who enjoy vegetables, but there were many olives involved giving it a Mediterranean flare in the majority of our opinions. We’re unsure how to justify the price if this was a full flatbread though.

Chebbakia: Hand-twisted Strips of Fried Dough coated with Honey, Rosewater and Sesame Seeds – $7.00

Chebbakia: Hand-twisted Strips of Fried Dough coated with Honey, Rosewater and Sesame Seeds $7.00
Chebbakia: Hand-twisted Strips of Fried Dough coated with Honey, Rosewater and Sesame Seeds – $7.00

These are being hand-made in the food studio, which is a welcome change from past festivals where the Morocco dishes are prepared in the kitchens and brought outside to stay warm. We expected a crunchy dessert but were greeted with a soft, gooey texture that honestly didn’t work well. Not to mention the item is a bit unfortunate looking.

Casa Pale Lager (5% ABV) – $4.50

Sold as “Casa Beer” in North America, the Société des Brasseries du Maroc Casablanca is a pale lager from Morocco.

Bonassia Red, Meknès, Morocco – $6.00

The Bonassia Estate ‘L’Excellence de Bonassia’ Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot is apparently one of the more sought-after wines from Morocco. This wine has been becoming increasingly popular over the past year, according to wine-searcher.com.

Embrace the Arak: Massaya Arak, Grapefruit Juice and Grenadine – $8.00

Embrace the Arak: Massaya Arak, Grapefruit Juice and Grenadine $8.00
Embrace the Arak: Massaya Arak, Grapefruit Juice and Grenadine – $8.00

AbracadaBar has their absinthe, Morocco has Embrace the Arak. Similar taste across the board: heavy licorice, lengthy aftertaste. It’s one of the most undrinkable items we’ve had in recent years at Epcot festivals. Not recommended.
