Our “Snacks from…” series treats you to different snacks found in the World Showcase pavilions at Epcot. Find more reviews here! Continuing our series, we head to Plaza de los Amigos in the Mexico Pavilion!
It looks like this is an Eating WDW first – a Snacks from Mexico! I know I’ve bought snacks there before, but I haven’t reviewed anything here. If you look around a bit in the pavilion and get past all of the Kahlua-flavored items, there are some interesting items to be enjoyed! Matt and I spotted this package of Obleas: Wafers with Goat’s Milk Candy. Goat’s milk!? We had to try it!
The treat consists of two thing wheat wafers held together by a layer of caramel made with goat milk. The package contains 5 individually wrapped sandwiches.
It’s been a little while since I’ve stopped in to La Cava del Tequila tucked into the Mexico pavilion. Upon seeing the Horchata Margarita spotted by a friend of Drinking Disney, I knew it was definitely time for another visit to the popular watering hole.
The Horchata Margarita is made with Exotico 100% agave premium silver Tequila, horchata liquor, agave nectar, agua de horchata and Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey served with a cinnamon and sugar rim. Mexican horachata is a beverage traditionally made with rice. The margarita is then topped with a healthy dose of cinnamon.
One place I enjoy grabbing a quick bite while wandering World Showcase is La Cantina de San Angel. Seating can be tricky, with many guests scoping out and scooping up tables as they become available. You certainly need to be swift on your feet to snag one sometimes!
I stopped by for an item I’ve ordered before, but haven’t reviewed here on the blog yet: Empanadas de Queso. The dish is served with three fried corn masa empanadas filled with Chihuahua cheese and green sauce (AKA Salsa Verde). Alongside is a healthy order of corn tortilla chips. On past visits, the chips have been tri-colored, which I don’t care for, so I was happy to see them without blue and red dyes added. While I’m sure you could ask for it, it would be nice for the chips to come with a side of their Pico de Gallo like their taco dishes do.
While we enjoyed this year’s Taco de Filete this year at Food & Wine Festival, I had to revisit some favorites from last year before the end of it. Those items were the Crispy Shrimp Taco and the Lime Strawberry Margarita on the Rocks to see if they remained awesome.
The taco was once again vibrant in presentation. There were several more shrimp tucked under the shredded red cabbage as well.
