One of the kiosks that impressed me at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival in 2013 was Taste of Marrakesh in Morocco. I felt that the offerings were better representative of the flavors of the cuisine than what is offered during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. From the official website:
“Embark on a trek near the Morocco Pavilion and educate your tastes on North African spices. Each unique flavor has been paired with fresh ingredients and can be sampled with Moroccan beer and wine at this garden oasis.”
The Baghrir is the only returning menu items for 2014, and something I didn’t get to sample last year. It was certainly on my radar for this year!
Being fans of the Beef Brewat Rolls served at Restaurant Marrakesh, Matt and I were both looking forward to the Lamb Brewat Roll with Prunes and Sesame. The portion size is fairly large and is stuffed with tender, shredded lamb, reminding me of the aforementioned Restaurant Marrakesh’s Roast Lamb Meshoui.
Where as the Beef Brewat Rolls are sweetened with a sprinkling of powdered sugar, here there is some prune incorporated for a touch of sweetness. I didn’t get an actual piece of prune until my last bite, however. As for sesame, I tasted none, but that’s perhaps a good thing as the flavor can easily become overpowering. The sauce it was served with helped to cut the richness of the lamb (which also wasn’t very gamey), but I didn’t find it necessary.
