Subsequent up at this yr’s Epcot Worldwide Competition of the Holidays is the Las Posadas Vacation Kitchen, which is in World Showcase’s Mexico pavilion. On this evaluation, we’ll share pictures of each snack and dessert merchandise on the menu, and supply our meals critiques & tasting notes.
The factor I like about Taco Bell is that there are not any pretenses concerning the place. Nobody walks in considering, “I’m going to discover the wealthy culinary traditions of Mexico.” And if for some motive they do, that’s completely on them. Taco Bell is a identified amount at this level. It’s a spot you go to to additional punish your physique after an evening of partying or once you’re within the temper for his or her check kitchen’s newest culinary abominations. It’s not good meals, but it surely’s good enjoyable.
What does that should do with a evaluation of the Las Posadas Vacation Kitchen? This, and each different current Mexico sales space at Epcot festivals, is mainly the anti-Taco Bell. Meals masquerading as one thing greater than it’s, bland as might be, and uninteresting as well.
Right here’s what’s on the meals menu on the Las Posadas Vacation Kitchen for 2018:
Enchilada de Pollo con Mole: Chipotle Hen in a Corn Tortilla topped with Mole Negro and garnished with Shredded Oaxaca Cheese and Sesame SeedsTamal de Camarón: Corn Tamal filled with Guajillo-marinated Shrimp topped with Mole Rojo and Shredded Cotija CheeseArroz Con Leche: Rice Pudding with Cranberries
Now our pictures and critiques of every merchandise…
Enchilada de Pollo con Mole – In case you’re searching for a barely tacky, vaguely corn tasting dish with hen, select this.
Tamal de Camarón – In case you’re searching for a barely tacky, vaguely corn tasting dish with shrimp, select this.
Arroz Con Leche – That is really good. It’s mainly the identical dish from Meals & Wine, besides with cranberries instead of the mango. I preferred it then, and I prefer it much more now.
The rice blended with the coconut milk makes for a creamy pudding that retains its texture and a very good consistency. The cranberry topping pushes it over the sting because the tart performs effectively with the milkiness. It’s a refreshing dessert particularly good for hotter days, or for those who’re sick of Xmas Log.
Right here’s the Las Posadas alcohol menu:
Cerveza Mexicana Artesanal: Allende Mexican Craft Ale served with a Floater of KahlúaNoche Buena Margarita: Libélula Joven Tequila, Cranberry and Lime Juices and Agave Nectar topped with Lime Foam and SprinklesLa Posada Margarita: Cazadores Blanco Tequila, Horchata-Cinnamon Liqueur, and Agua de Horchata topped with Cinnamon
Out of the twelve Vacation Kitchens, the one in Mexico ranks #11. What’s extra spectacular than that it charges so poorly is that by some means one other sales space is definitely worse than this! I’m positive you’re all on the sting of your seats to seek out out which one, however you’ll have to remain tuned for that huge reveal…
