First Look: Review of Spice Road Table at Epcot

by on January 14, 2014

IMG_3049Spice Road Table opened up on Saturday for previews, and I was able to head over there on opening night.

This new restaurant is found in the Morocco Pavilion at Epcot, situated along the water’s edge. It serves up Mediterranean-inspired small plates, along with an extensive drink menu. The restaurant’s inspiration is drawn from outdoor cafes found along the Mediterranean. You really get the outdoor cafe feel, as most of the restaurant is outdoors, with only a small portion of seats situated inside. In the same complex as the restaurant is a Henna tattoo artist station, as well as a Moroccan shop.

The night the restaurant opened, as my husband and I were walking through Epcot, it started sprinkling. Then it started raining…by the time I reached the restaurant, it was POURING! I looked like a drowned rat, seeing as I’d left my umbrella back at the hotel. (So dumb on my part! I always bring it, and then the one time I don’t, downpour!) So, I ran into the restaurant, observing its beauty with rain water-filled eyes. (PS: keep the rain in mind when dining here. While it is covered, there is the potential for you to get a bit wet, depending on the way the wind is blowing.)

My first impressions were that the whole complex was quite pretty. Disney did a great job in the design and theme. As I walked in, I marveled at the incredibly blue wall behind the bar area. I was also in awe of the lights that hung above.

Spice Road Table has been a bit of a puzzle. It was announced on April 1 this year that the restaurant was headed to the Morocco Pavilion at Epcot. Construction was quite visible, but as the year has come to an end, aside from one tiny update details on the restaurant have been rather quiet. Today, the Disney Parks Blog shared another piece of the puzzle by giving us a look at some of the menu items we can expect when Spice Road Table officially opens.

Menu items released today include dishes like lamb sliders, rice stuffed grape leaves, fried calamari, salted cod coquettes, and a tingis sampler. Previously announced offerings include garlic jumbo shrimp in a spicy chili pepper sauce; harissa chicken drumettes; mussels with preserved lemons and tomato sauce; a Mediterranean omelet with sausage, potatoes, and caramelized onion; and Moroccan merguez sausage with a tomato salad. Also available will be a wide selection of wines, a Spice Road Table Aperitif Flight, and sangria.

It was announced early this year that a brand new restaurant called Spice Road Table was coming to the Morocco Pavilion in Epcot. Today, Disney shared a few details about what guests can look forward to when when the restaurant officially opens.

This new table service dining establishment is located on the World Showcase Lagoon along the water’s edge, making it the perfect location for catching IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. The restaurant will feature an outdoor terrace with seating for 120 guests. There will also be some indoor seating, enough for 60 guests.

The restaurant’s inspiration is drawn from outdoor cafes found along the Mediterranean. In addition, stretching along the front of the building will be a collection of shops in the colorful style of a Moroccan “souk,” or marketplace.
