Went to Epcot for a few hours last week during my vacation.

The new caramel shop in Germany is heaven; I could have spent a fortune in there and gladly would have taken the cavities that would come along with it.

The new Test Track; seemed more like being inside the grid than being in a test car vehicles may have well been lightcycles. The customize your car thing is a cool feature, but when you get two kids in a car who both think that they're riding their own cars, trouble will brew. Case in point, I rode in a car with a family with two small boys, at the end of the ride the mother said to her one son "your car was really good" to which the other yelled that they were in his car, not his brother's.

I had to spend one evening at the Biergarten and the food buffet was very good. Only the meatloaf - Leberkäse - was way too small and not spiced enough. But hey - I mostly went there as it's the only place were one can get a wheat beer - Weizenbier...

I will be at Epcot in April with one of my friends, and I am wondering what people think the best foods at Epcot are? Like what country's pavilion, for example?

 

Is there anything really bizarre or unique that we should try? lol.

 

 

I'm really looking forward to visiting this park to experience the different pavilions!

Pizza at Via Napoli is a must. It's that good!

 

Flower & Garden will also still be going on and they are having a mini Food & Wine with it so there will be some different options available. Elissa posted about it a few pages back.

I would mainly get the food from the Flower and Garden Festival booths. As for counter service restaurants, I like China (dumplings), Japan (everything), France (Bakery), Land Pavilion, and Morocco (Baklava). For sit down restaurants, Italy, Japan, and Morocco are my favorite. For unique, Coral Reef has an entire wall that is an aquarium. I really like the food, but most people think it's just ok. Germany's restaurant has an Oktoberfest style atmosphere that is pretty popular. The new French restaurant is supposed to be really good as well.
