Teriyaki Chicken Bun: Steamed Bun filled with Chicken, Vegetables, and Teriyaki Sauce – $7.50

Inside of this delicately prepared bao bun is a good amount of shredded chicken tossed in a sweet teriyaki sauce. The menu description says there’re vegetables in there, but there’s far more chicken than vegetables—and that’s a good thing! There’s a lot of value here in the relatively large portion for the price, especially in EPCOT Festival terms. It’s a tasty and safe bet for this year’s festival.

Takoyaki: Octopus, Green Onion and Cabbage Bites topped with Tonkatsu Sauce, Bonito Flakes and Nori – $8.50

This dish cuts easy but has a weird texture, kinda mushy and starchy. It’s more of a fritter with a bit of octopus inside. The octopus is pretty flavorless. We won’t go out of our way for this one again.

Spicy Salmon Donburi: Spicy Salmon with Sushi Rice, Shiso Leaf, Red Tobiko and Rice Pearls – $8.75

The salmon has a nice soft texture and is definitely high quality. There’s nothing chewy or too fishy, it’s the perfect sushi taste. The tabiko gives it a nice crunch and the rice is well cooked. This one is a win in our books!

Yuzu Lemon Drop: Vodka, Yuzu and Lemon – $8.00

Yuzu Lemon Drop: Vodka, Yuzu and Lemon – $8.00

This drink smelled wonderful. It has the edge of a real tart lemon, with a sweet hit from the yuzu. You can taste the vodka as well. It was served from a slushy machine but came out liquid. Overall, this is a great drink.

*NEW* Hana Fuji Apple Sake ($12/bottle) – $8.00

From Takara Sake USA Inc.: “HANA Fuji Apple lives up to its name with an appealing aroma that fulfills its promise on the palate with the crisp tartness of a delicious Fuji apple. The lovely lingering finish continues the taste of rich apple flavor. Its low alcohol makes it a fine aperitif, either straight up or on the rocks.”

*NEW* Orange Blossom Brewing Co. Moon Blossom Pilsner, Orlando, FL (5.5% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 oz., $9.50 for 12 oz.

From correspondence with Orange Blossom Brewing Co., Moon Blossom Pilsner was brewed exclusively for the festival and has “hints of red bean, honey, and rice.”
