I love visiting the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. And one of the reasons why I come back to the festival year after year is the opportunity to try new cuisine. They have global marketplaces with food and drinks from all over the world. Some of these cuisines, such as Italian, I may be more familiar with. But it is fun to try a cuisine I do not eat every day.
One of those is Australia. Outside of Outback Steakhouse, I do not visit Australian restaurants on a regular basis or cook Australian recipes. But I definitely want to try cooking Australian recipes after visiting the Australia Global Marketplace at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
I want to tell you about what the Australian market offers, and what our favorite menu items are. And then I’ll tell you how you can save money a ticket to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
Epcot Australia Menu
- Sweet-and-Spicy Bush Berry Shrimp with Onion, Pepper, Snap Peas & Sweet Chili Sauce
- Roasted Lamb Chop with Mint Pesto & Potato Crunchies
- Lamington Cake
- Yellow Cake with Raspberry Filling with Coconut & Chocolate
- Yalumba ‘The Y Series’ Viognier, South Australia
- Château Tanunda Grand Barossa Shiraz, Barossa Valley, Australia
Our Favorite Menu Items
My favorite menu item would have to be the Lamington Cake.
Everyone in my family liked this one. I had Lamington Cake one time before at the Food & Wine Festival at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, and while I liked it there, I liked it even better here. The main reason why was that it was much softer here. It just melted in your mouth and was amazing. All the tastes blended perfectly together.
The other menu item we really liked was the Roasted Lamb Chop.
The meat was so good! It tasted great with the mint, too. The potato crunchies were great too and were a wonderful crunchy addition to the dish.
If I had any complaint about it, it would be that I wish there had been more meat because I really did not want it to be over. But really, this complaint is more like a compliment.
So these are my two favorite menu items from Australia, but really you can’t go wrong at this Global Marketplace because it really is a standout!
