I Love the Festival Food at Mexico’s Outdoor Kitchen in Epcot

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

Mexico’s festival food offerings usually knock it out of the park each time. And, Jardin de Fiestas for Flower and Garden Festival is no different! I loved everything I ordered!

During Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival, you can find dozens of booths around the park featuring fresh and creative dishes. Not only will you find cuisine based on the countries you visit, but others throughout Epcot offer other food items and beverages as well.

One of my personal favorite booths for each festival is the one located in the Mexico Pavilion. It is consistently good!

The Flower and Garden festival offerings are no different from my past experiences here, so let’s take a look.

One thing I love about the Mexico Outdoor Kitchen is there are always new menu items each year. Oftentimes, Disney will repeat certain dishes year after year. While I do love my favorite dishes each year, I also like to try new things.

Food Review

The Sope de Chilorio was so good! The shell was softer, and the flavors were all savory and meshed well together. Mexican pork is one of my favorite savory flavor profiles.

Tamales are one of my favorite authentic Mexican dishes, and the Tamale de Rajas were fantastic. While not the best I’ve ever had, they are a familiar favorite and I was happy with my choice to eat one.

I would absolutely eat both again, and I hope you give them a try on your next visit. These dishes are a bit pricey ($8.75 each), but I feel the value is there.
