Eating on a Budget – Epcot 2 - Orlando / Florida Guide
Florida Guide > Dining
In related articles we have gone out to prove that eating in Walt Disney World theme parks need not cost an arm and a leg. Epcot is a great example with lots of cafes and small restaurants dotted around World Showcase Lagoon which don’t need to stretch the budget too far.
As we had been so pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food in the restaurants highlighted previously, we wanted to widen our scope and find a few more excellent budget eateries within Epcot and share our experiences with you.
Hidden away on the left hand side of the Japanese pavilion is Yakitori House. This is a counter service restaurant that specialises in traditional Japanese dishes and offers comprehensive lunch and dinner menus, all at very reasonable prices.
By way of example a three course dinner comprising a starter of Miso Soup followed by a main course of Teriyaki Chicken and a Ginger Cake dessert would only lighten the wallet by around $15. A shot of Sake or Plum Wine would be around $5 extra. For younger diners, under nine years of age, the restaurant offers an entrée and soft drink for just $6.
With the right timing your visit may also coincide with a performance by the amazing Japanese Drummers. So, not only do you get an excellent meal on a budget but also free entertainment thrown in as well.
If you are looking for a lunch time snack then head for the Boulangerie Patisserie in the French Pavilion. They do a delightful Ham and Cheese Quiche as well as lovely crusty baguettes and a mouth watering Cheese Platter but a word of warning though; make sure you leave enough room for a dessert.
Treat yourself to such delights as Caramel Souffle, Coconut Pyramid or Raspberry Schuss, they are absolutely divine.
Costs are variable but it is likely that there will be change out of $10 for a two course snack.
For something a little bit different try the Lefse at the Kringla Bakeri og Café at the Norway pavilion which is a traditional potato bread with cinnamon and butter.
If that is not to your taste the Chef’s Daily Selection features a choice of gourmet sandwiches and a cup of soup followed by chocolate mousse, all for under $10.
To finish off why not sample the Viking Coffee laced with Baileys Original Irish Cream.
These are just a few more examples of what you can expect to find in Epcot and I hope that you will agree with us that it doesn’t necessarily have to cost a lot to eat well and heartily within the park.
