Charcuterie with a selection of imported Spanish meats, cheeses, olives and herb vinaigrette – $6.50

Epcot Food & Wine 2018 Spain Charcuterie

They slice the meats fresh right here in the cabin before assembling that shine into a cone. No, you can’t eat the cone, but you can eat all the cheese, olives, and meats in it. There’s value here for the price, due to the freshness of all the ingredients, plus it’s just tasty. We recommend.

Paella with rice, chorizo ​​and prawns – $6.00

The Spanish paella is a staple in the Spanish market, but this time around it wasn’t as good as the charcuterie. The rice seems a bit overdone and the prawns are nothing to write home about. If anything, the chorizo ​​is the winner of the dish, giving it a little kick. Otherwise the paella is more bland than expected.

Seafood salad with shrimp, bay scallops, mussels, extra virgin olive oil, white balsamic vinegar and smoked paprika – $6.25

Epcot Food & Wine 2018 Spain Seafood Salad

This dish is really greasy. It’s understandable, given that the mixture is mixed with olive oil, but when half the glass is filled with oil, it’s just not fun. Still, there’s a healthy mix of shrimp, scallops, mussels, olives, peppers and more, making for a unique and tasty offering. The price might be a little too high if you don’t get a few good chunks of seafood, but we think that’s a risk worth taking.

Estrella Galicia Cerveza Especial Lager (5.5% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 oz, $9.00 for 12 oz.

Estrella Galicia describes their Cerveza Especial Lager as having “an excellent aromatic balance between malts and hops” with “a golden, clean and bright color”. Tasting notes include “slightly floral and herbaceous flavors, with a moderate warm mouthfeel and an intense hoppy bitterness that lingers. [in] the mouth.”
