This Moroccan restaurant specializes in small plates and tapas. The dishes are served as three courses, with one dish per course. You start by selecting your first plate of the evening – we recommend starting light! Then you’ll be served a second item before finishing off with dessert or coffee depending on what time it is when you visit. The food at Spice Road Table will make sure that none of your guests go hungry so if you’re hosting an event where not everyone can eat everything then this might be the perfect place for you!

The menu includes many typical dishes from different regions and even eras throughout Japanese history, such as sushi, tempura, udon noodles, tonkatsu (somewhat like fried pork), and ramen. It also has more traditional options such as miso soup with tofu or green tea ice cream.

This Italian restaurant is located in the World Showcase, near Tutto Italia and Via Napoli. The food here features pasta dishes served with a variety of sauces. There’s also pizza on offer as well, which pairs nicely with wine or beer from Italy.

The Tutto Gusto is a great place to grab lunch or dinner and it’s close proximity to two other restaurants makes this an excellent choice. All of the food here is freshly prepared, which means that guests should be aware that they will have a bit of wait time before their order arrives.

Tutto Italia

Tutto Italia is an Italian restaurant that serves pasta, pizza and more. Tutto Italia has been around since the opening of Epcot in 1982 but doesn’t seem to be as popular as some other restaurants at Disney World.

Katsura Grill

Katsura Grill is one of the more unique Epcot restaurants. The restaurant serves a fusion between Japanese and Korean cuisines, but it’s not quite as adventurous with its food offerings as another Disney World favorite – Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs.

Katsura offers sushi; traditional dishes like “ramen” or udon noodle soup (which are actually served cold); salads; bento boxes including teriyaki chicken on rice or vegetable tempura vegetables on rice; various soups such as white miso salmon, green curry beef, tonkatsu pork broth with egg noodles, and spicy tofu & carrot stew to name just a few.

Lotus Blossom Cafe

The Lotus Blossom Cafe is a counter service restaurant with an Asian cuisine. It’s one of the few places in Epcot where you’re not required to make reservations and can walk up without any notice, though it does require a credit card guarantee for your purchase.

The food here is great because they have so many selections, and while there are some dishes that may be too spicy or salty for kids, this place has something on the menu for everyone!

Pizza al Taglio

Pizza al Taglio is a restaurant in the Italy Pavilion. It serves pizza, pasta dishes, and soft drinks. They specialize in fresh-baked bread from their wood-burning oven made with local heirloom grains. The pizzas are cooked on stone slabs at high temperatures for 45 seconds to seal in the moisture and flavor.

Pizza al Taglio has a full bar and can accommodate vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free diets. They serve breakfast items such as ricotta pancakes and eggs benedict for those who want to start their day off with something more than pizza or pasta.

Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue

The Regal Eagle Smokehouse is a place to get your barbecue fix in Epcot, and with out it would be such a bummer. Located on the left side of the pavilion near Test Track, this spot offers up some great ribs that will make you want to come back for more! They also offer an assortment of craft beers on tap: perfect for pairing your favorite meat dish with one of their tasty brews.

Sommerfest: The Culinary Cornerstone of Germany

If you’re looking for a place to celebrate German culture, look no further than the Sommerfest! Located in the World Showcase’s back corner (the left-hand side near Mexico), this is one restaurant that offers up some really great food. From baked ham and cheese sandwiches to freshly made pretzels, there are tons of options at Sommerfest. If you can’t find something here, it might not exist!

Tangierine Cafe

The Tangierine Cafe has a similar (though more limited) menu as the Morocco Pavilion. The Moroccan-themed restaurant serves up sandwiches, salads and desserts with flavors from North Africa like honey gelato to sweet briouats filled with apricots, almonds, pistachios or chocolate hazelnut praline paste. I recommend stopping by for lunch before heading into World Showcase in order to not fill up on all of those carbs at Greece’s Spoodles!

Epcot Restaurants: Complete Guide 8

Yorkshire County Fish Shop

This “fish and chips” restaurant is located in the UK Pavilion. It serves up fried fish (cod, haddock or halibut) with a side of fries as well as crab cakes on buns. You can also get baked salmon picatta here!

The Fish Shop’s fries are pretty tasty – they’re served hot and crispy with malt vinegar for dipping. I’ll admit that when it comes to fried fish we’ve got some great options around Orlando but this place does offer something unique in terms of atmosphere which sets it apart from other restaurants at Epcot.

Snack Stops

Canada Popcorn Cart

This cart inside the Canada pavilion offers a variety of different types of popcorn, including kettle corn. Choose your own toppings from cheddar cheese to caramel and chocolate sauce to flavor it just how you like!

L’Artisan des Glaces

L’Artisan is currently rated at #11 out of all restaurants in Walt Disney World according to TripAdvisor reviews for 2018.

Fife and Drum Tavern

The Fife and Drum Tavern is a quick service restaurant located on the back side of America in Epcot’s World Showcase. If you are looking for some all-American food, then this is your spot!

The menu includes things like hamburgers, hotdogs, barbecue ribs and chicken sandwiches with apple coleslaw to boot. Most notably though they offer an award-winning chili which can only be found here at the tavern!

Crepes de Chefs de France

Crepes de Chefs de France is a must-visit for breakfast. The French cuisine at this restaurant includes crepes, omelets, and other traditional breakfast options that are all delicious! If you’re not feeling anything on the menu in particular, get a Creme Brulee Crepe!

The prices here are very reasonable so it’s easy to find something affordable without breaking the bank. I recommend getting an entrée and then splitting dessert with someone else if you want to share or order more than one dish. This way you’ll also have leftovers to snack on later when hunger strikes again while touring Epcot.

Funnel Cakes Stand

This is a place that’s really worth visiting. Funnel Cake stands are ubiquitous in the United States, but they usually don’t have as many toppings to choose from or as diverse of flavors.

The stand at Epcot has both short and long funnel cakes with different types of fillings like fruity pebbles cereal, apple pie filling, marshmallow creme, chocolate peanut butter ganache etc., There are also several topping choices available which include powdered sugar for those looking for a simpler taste experience.

Future World Popcorn Cart

This is a temporary cart that operates during peak seasons only. It’s open seasonally, and typically offers caramel corn, kettle corn, cheese popcorn with cheddar & jalapeno or without toppings.

If you’re looking for freshness, avoid buying from here as they don’t have any means to keep their food cool (or warm!). That would be an issue if there wasn’t so much else going on nearby and in other countries!

This informative article features a candy square recipe, as well as the many different options for combining caramel with other flavors. The Epcot restaurants are not only fun for adults, but kids get to enjoy their foods by tasting caramel from the kitchens.

Joy of Tea

In the old China pavilion, you’ll find a nice little Chinese restaurant called Joy of Tea. While it’s not the biggest or most exciting of Epcot restaurants, for a quick meal with some good Chinese food and tea to boot, this is your best bet.

The menu includes the typical staples you would expect from any other restaurant: egg rolls, pork fried rice, sweet & sour chicken… It also offers Beijing-style noodles that are quite delicious! If you’re looking for something more substantial than just a snack (or if you happen to be craving Chinese), then head on over to Joy of Tea. You won’t regret it!

Promenade Refreshments

Tucked away near the Canada pavilion is a little kiosk called Promenade Refreshments.

There are no tables or chairs here – just coolers filled with all sorts of tasty snacks to enjoy at your leisure. The selection varies but you can usually find chips, cookies, ice cream bars and more in this small snack stand. If you’re looking for something lighter than one of those huge turkey legs (or after having eaten one!), then stop by Promenade! You won’t regret it either!
