Oof, $4.75 for two Piggy Wings now. These wings are tender and fall right off the bone. The Korean BBQ sauce is spicy and has a great kick making each bite a flavorful masterpiece. Unfortunately the price has gone up and the wings aren’t too big. At almost $3/wing it’s nearly impossible to justify this purchase now, even if they’re mighty tasty.

This nearly perfect dish is a returning favorite from 2017. The smoked corned beef is flavorful, tender, and has a great slathering of sauce on it. There’s plenty of chips to help pick-up the meat and fondue, all three together a match made in heaven. It’s a must do item, even if it’s a return. Honestly everything at Flavors from Fire is worth doing.

This item replaced one of our favorites from 2017 at the Flavors from Fire booth, but that’s okay because it’s just as amazing. There’s an underlying spiciness to the skirt steak that’s rather intense for an Epcot festival but that’s everything we absolutely adore. The coleslaw on top helps to cut-back the spice and the aioli rounds-out the flavor profile. The smoked corn cake below helps hold everything together making this an absolute winner.

Last year this item was topped with a raspberry dust; this year we have mango. The mango pairs well with the chocolate mousse and spice. It’s an absolutely stellar dark chocolate mousse that’s made with chili powder that gives an excellent spice to the entire creation. This is one of our favorite desserts from 2017 and it’s just as good (if not better) in 2018.

 

Swine Brine featuring Jim Beam Bourbon – $8.25

Swine Brine featuring Jim Beam Bourbon – $8.25

Last year, this surprisingly good drink was made with Evan Williams bourbon. This year they switched to the more well-known Jim Beam bourbon, but no matter – it’s still good! The Swine Brine is definitely one of the most unique cocktails offered this year at the festival, and many were surprised at just how good (read: weird) this ended up being. It’s a combination of apple juice, lemon juice, bourbon, and mustard, which sounds pretty terrible. Needless to say, everyone in our group grimaced before they tried it, but they ended up enjoying it more than expected. WARNING: It may not be for everyone. Also, don’t dip the pork in.
