Guests go crazy for Canada during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. It commands some of the longest lines, so be sure to hit the kiosk early if you don’t want to spend time waiting in the heat for soup.
Prices are up 25 cents on the Trout and the Filet Mignon, and the tiny cup of soup remains unchanged.
Head to the Canada Beer Cart for a full sized Moosehead.
We tried the Seared Rainbow Trout last year when it was introduced. The dish is topped with Bacon, Frisee, L8 Harvest (a vinegar) and Minus 8 Vinaigrette, varying only slightly from last year’s preparation. Neither of us cared much for the trout last year, only able to eat a small bite or two each. Needless to say, it didn’t make our 2014 list.
Everyone goes crazy for the Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup. We ordered it last year because there was no line at the kiosk and we were getting the trout as well. Yes, it’s good, but the price for the portion is a bit much, especially when we have the recipe that we can doctor at home.
We haven’t ordered the “Le Cellier” Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon with Truffle Butter Sauce since 2012. It tasted better than it looks, but it’s a bit pricey for it to come out looking like this. I’ve seen pictures of the dish run the gamut from “pretty and appetizing” to “pile of slop,” though.
We’ll keep you posted on updated reviews from Canada as the 2014 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival continues. What have you tried from the kiosk, and what did you think? What are you looking forward to trying?
