I’m pretty sure that I’ve mentioned this before here on the blog, but I’m not big on Chinese food. Matt has that job, and I’ll cover Mexican. Sometimes I crave it, though, and when that happens, Matt’s on the phone to place an order before I finish my sentence. Since he was in the mood for an Asian-inspired lunch, so we headed over to Sunshine Seasons in Epcot to take care of that. It’s been a little while since we’d been there, and were looking to cover it a bit more. We took a look at the menu, and he decided on the Mongolian Beef with Vegetable Fried Rice.
One of the stand-outs of this dish for me was the veggies. They were on the mark for crispness. Matt doesn’t like broccoli, so those pieces were mine.
The beef itself was okay. Some gristly pieces, but overall, it was tender. Matt even got a few pieces of beef tucked away that were cooked rare; clearly a mistake, but he was happy nonetheless. The sauce had a bit of heat, but it’s nothing that’s going to singe your lips off. It also had a fair amount of salt, as expected. Matt also noted that the onions were cooked well, and I agreed.
While this photo doesn’t really show it, the fried rice had a lot of egg in it. Fortunately, this is pretty much the one dish Matt can get past his dislike for eggs. I really would have loved if there was pork in here, and Matt needed to add soy sauce for a bit of oomph. Overall though, it was good.
This dish is pricey, nearly hitting the $12 mark. With a single fountain soda, we’re ringing in at $15 for one person. Personally, I think there are better quick service dishes to be found in Epcot for well under that price, but if you’re craving some Chinese food and aren’t ready to head to World Showcase, it will certainly satiate you.
