Morocco Review: 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival
Just like it’s neighbor the Tangierine Cafe, the Morocco booth often gets overlooked when it comes to Food and Wine season. In fact it’s just this year that it gets a proper booth! That being said, there are some excellent options on the menu in Morocco and it has some of the best food to offer at Food and Wine. So let’s take a look at what’s being offered this year.
I love the new booth!! I love the architecture and the spray paint job is amazing!!
- Kefta Pocket: Seasoned Ground Beef in a Pita Pocket – $5.00, DDP Snack Eligible *Ziggy Recommended
- Spicy Hummus Fries with Cucumber, Tomato, Onions and Tzatziki Sauce – $5.00, Vegetarian, DDP Snack Eligible
- Chocolate Baklava: Rolled Phyllo Dough with Toasted Almonds and Dark Chocolate Sauce – $3.95, Vegetarian, DDP Snack Eligible *Ziggy Recommended
- Casa Pale Lager – $4.00
- Les Trois Domaines Guerrouane White Wine – $5.00
- Moroccan Sangria – $6.00
- Mimosa Royale: Sparkling Wine and Orange Juice topped with Orange Liqueur – $8.00
The first thing I had was the Kefta Pocket: Seasoned Ground Beef in a Pita Pocket.
I’m not a cabbage guy at all, but the combo with the beef worked awesome together. It was also a sizeable portion and good value. Think of it as a Moroccan Meatball Sandwich, and who doesn’t like meatball sandwiches?!?! Recommended for sure!
Next was the Spicy Hummus Fries with Cucumber, Tomato, Onions and Tzatziki Sauce
This was good, but not my favorite. It was definitely unique and wins some points for presentation and creativity. However I’m not a huge fan of Hummus so it’s not going to be my fav. That said, they are like mini falafels and everyone else really liked it. So you probably will too.
The inside is dense and moist, and the outside has a little crisp to it. The tomato and cucumber salsa on top was very fresh and tasty. They aren’t too spicy so you don’t have to worry about that. And I do have to say they are great to share.
Lastly was the Chocolate Baklava: Rolled Phyllo Dough with Toasted Almonds and Dark Chocolate Sauce
I think this Baklava is ever better than the one in the Tangierine Cafe. It’s really delicious! Again good size piece, phyllo dough was very flaky and the outside had some hardened chocolate, chocolate sauce and it’s sprinkled with almonds. Look at the inside how dense of a filling that is…
Again, very rich, and another that’s great to share! Super recommended.
Booth Summary and Grade:
Morocco is a must visit booth at Food and Wine 2016 just like it is every year. I think there are really some great options and the Kefta Pocket and Baklava are definite must tries! I was surprised myself about the Kefta Pocket and left wanting even more. Don’t miss out!
If you have to get just one thing: Chocolate Baklava
