Moqueca: Brazilian Seafood Stew featuring Scallops, Shrimp and White Fish with Coconut-Lime Sauce and Steamed Rice – $5.75

This may not look like the most appetizing dish at the festival, but it was absolutely delicious. It had just the right amount of spice and seasonings. It features scallops, shrimp, white fish, and a coconut lime sauce, all served on a bed of perfectly cooked steamed rice. Every flavor complements each other in this dish. This is officially a must-get at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival.

Pork belly seems to be a trend that’s finally dying, only the best executions of the dish remain. Fortunately Brazil’s is actually quite good, once you get past the price versus portion. There’s a good amount of salsa on top and black beans on bottom to make this a relatively filling dish as well. It’s good, but it’s on that borderline of ‘is the price worth it?’. Your mileage may vary.

Pão de Queijo: Brazilian Cheese Bread – $4.75

Pão de Queijo: Brazilian Cheese Bread – $4.75

It’s incredibly difficult to recommend these at the price for a piece of cheese bread, even if they are pretty spectacular. You can find a bag of Brazi-Bites in your local grocer for a fraction of the cost if you want to indulge in cheese paradise.

*NEW* M.I.A. Beer Company Limāo Lager, Doral, FL (4.5% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 o.z., $9.00 for 12 o.z.

From correspondence with M.I.A. Beer Company, “this refreshing rice lager is brewed with a hint of lime and a sprinkle of hops, creating plenty of rhythmic flavor…”

Frozen Caipirinha featuring LeBlon Cachaça ($30/bottle) – $11.00

A decent portion for the price that tastes like an alcoholic lemonade with just a bit more tartness than expected. It’s Brazil’s national drink so they must be doing something right because it’s rather refreshing and enjoyable.
