Sous Vide Chicken Roulade with Apples and Sage served with Warm Brie Fondue, Blueberry and Beet Gel and garnished with Beet Chip Crumbles – $6.75
We felt the portion for the price didn’t quite match here, with the piece of chicken being very small. The brie cheese doesn’t match the other flavors present in the dish either, but the blueberry jelly is pretty good. Mix it up with your few bites of chicken if you chose to get this dish, we’re on the fence about the $6.75.
Shrimp Ceviche with Lime Mint Foam- $6.00
While a little on the strange side, the shrimp ceviche with lime mint foam was pretty good. The foam flavor doesn’t overpower anything in the dish and the shrimp tasted fresh. Not the best shrimp dish I’ve ever had, but not the worst either.
Almond Frangipane Cake layered with Raspberry Jam and Belgian Chocolate – $4.50
This dessert is brilliant in its simplicity. The chocolate icing, exquisitely moist cake, and raspberry jam mix for one of the best festival treats I have ever had. I know it probably sounds dumb to enjoy a fairly regular cake item at an event with rarer dining delicacies, but it was just made so perfectly. Plus it’ll look great on your Instagram hashtag ArtfulEpcot
Pop’t Art: Modern-designed Sugar Cookie with Strawberry Filling – $4.50
It’s a pop-tart and cookie hybrid, this year with a strawberry filling. You may remember 2017’s version had a hazelnut filling and we felt it was a sugar rush. Well, this isn’t much of a change. Again, you can get some really cool pictures and every piece is unique, but it’s not unique enough to warrant a purchase especially at the price tag.
Blue Sky Black Cherry Boba Freeze – $4.50
This tastes like frozen Florida tap water. It is horrendous. Avoid at all costs.
#RainbowSherbertGlitterDreamAle by Playalinda Brewing Co., Titusville, FL (5.5% ABV) – $4.50
I’ve never had a sparkling beer before, so I applaud its presence. I will wish it tasted good though. It was pretty think, almost gelatinous. It’s pretty offputting.
Popping Bubbles Cocktail – $10.50
Whoever thought boba should be included in champagne should be shunned, because it just doesn’t work. It’s a fun drink, but you quickly learn that it’s difficult to A) sip and enjoy before being left with random boba, or if you B) get a straw and learn the hard way that champagne can’t be sipped through a straw without it bubbling everywhere. It’s a fun cocktail and the passion-fruit boba work well with the champagne. They’re using a FairyTale Celebration Cuvée, which is also enticing in itself.
*NEW* Tomato Soup Can Bloody Mary – $14.00
