Spring for most Walt Disney World enthusiasts equals Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot! A time to look at beautiful flowers and topiaries while enjoying delicious food! I highly HIGHLY recommend visiting this festival! Here are just a few food related items that I totally suggest you try if you make it to this awesome event! I’m sure there will be a part 2 (or 3 or 4) once I try more food and explore this year’s festival a little more.
First, we tried the Braised Beef and Seared Scallops from the food stand in Canada! They both were absolutely delicious! Braised beef came with creamy mashed potatoes and sweet carrots. Seared scallops came with bacon on top, as well as potatoes and green beans. It was a good amount of food, but wasn’t too heavy.
Next, we HAD to try the fruity in Japan. Two of my favorite things, fruit and sushi, combined! There was pineapple, melon and strawberry inside the roll. Even the drizzle of raspberry sauce and dollop of whipped cream on the side was good! Perfect light dessert to eat while exploring the other pavilions.
And last but NOT least, the famous Violet Lemonade. What can I say? IT LIVES UP TO THE HYPE! So refreshing, delicious and a MUST try. 10/10 would recommend. Its slightly tart and sour, but still very sweet. If it is hot and you need a pick me up, GET THIS.
(Side note: I tried the “edible” flower that sometimes comes on top of the drink at last year’s festival and it is disgusting. You have been warned…)
