Beignet aux Trois Fromages: Warm Beignet stuffed with a mixture of three cheeses – $6.00

This was good but weird. The dough tastes like a regular muffin, somewhat sweet, perhaps a little undercooked. The cheese mixture was delicious, creamy and smooth. It was a great combination of cheese flavours. However, cheese and donuts together were a strange combination. It wasn’t exactly bad, just weird.

*NEW* Brioche aux Escargots, Crème à l’ail et Persil: Escargot Brioche with Creamy Garlic Sauce and Parsley—$7.25

For $7.25, you’ll get three pieces of escargot dipped in sauce and bread. While we found the escargot to be very tasty, the pastry was too dense to satisfy. It was more chewy than flake.

Personally, if you are craving escargot, we suggest you visit Chefs de France instead of buying this dish. Or, if you are looking for a unique dining experience during the festival, we recommend the takoyaki from Japan Market.

*NEW* Parmentier de Boeuf Braisé au Cabernet: Short ribs cooked in Cabernet with mashed potatoes – $6.75

While the pork is very tender in this dish, we found it to be all on the bland side. Potatoes are nice and add texture, but everything lacks spice.

While there is Cabernet included in the sauce, we couldn’t find any taste of it. Personally, this dish is a skip.

*NEW* Crème Brûlée Vanille à la Confiture de Framboises: Vanilla Crème Brûlée with Homemade Raspberry Jam — $5.95

Like any good Crème Brûlée, the top was crunchy and easily broken for us. Underneath was a large amount of cream, followed by raspberry jam that settled on the bottom. The taste of the jam was pleasant and fresh, it was not artificial at all.

The whole candy texture was a creamy texture, firm in the heat, and not too sweet. This was easily our favorite item from the kiosk.

*NEW* Strawberry Rose Mimosa: Pol Remy Sparkling Wine ($7 a bottle), Orange Juice, and Monin Strawberry Rose—$8.95

This was fine, but nothing amazing. It’s a regular mimosa with sparkling wine and orange juice, but with a pinch of strawberries. It’s delicious and refreshing, but in the end it can be forgotten.

Chardonnay, Louis de Camponac ($12 a bottle) – $5.50

British grocery store Tesco describes this Chardonnay: “This white wine has a clear, bright yellow color with a white fruity aroma. The palate is full of flavor and [fruitiness]. “

La Passion Martini Slash: Vodka, Gray Goose Lee Citron ($30 a bottle), Cranberry and Passion Fruit Smoothie – $12.95

Epcot Food & Wine 2018 France Martini Slush

We love this frozen drink. It is a little expensive but the taste and luxury of the drink are well guaranteed. It’s cool, refreshing, and fruity enough to be fun without being too sweet.
