Vegan @ Disney: Spice Road Table

If you like Mediterranean food at all,  you power it to yourself to stop of in”Morocco” the next time you’re at Epcot. Make reservations at the Spice Road Table. 

I had a great available to me on-menu: delicious hummus and olives for an appetizer, and a wonderful veggie sampler for my entree, including

  • Hummus fries (similar to falafel, but subtly different) That were perfectly crisp on the outside yet soft on the inside,  with just a hint of spice
  • Vegetable dolmas (grape leaf wraps) with a savory and slightly sweety taste from the pine nuts and pumped raisins on top
  • Couscous with a delightfully rich flavor
  • And plenty of warm pita bread

I left feeling quite full,  and I’m a big eater (literally:  I’m 2 meters, or 6’7″, tall).

The mint tea was delicious: very light and refreshing after a warm day of park walking.

Our waiter, Saleem, was amazing, and made sure our 3 year old had familiar food.

Final word:  don’t miss it.  This was the best of the restaurants for service and flavor, and it had some amazing competition.

Meat Free Lagniappe: Panera Bread

Three words: Autumn Squash Soup

It’s vegan.  It has pumpkin seeds on top.   It comes with a toasted baguette (also vegan). It’s AMAZING.

I also had the Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich, Anne it was great.  The soup outshone it, but it was still really good. 

They always have several different seasonal iced tea flavors,  like ginger plum hibiscus, and lots of yummy bagels.
