Morocco – Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2014

We had hoped to try the shrimp roll at Morocco and as of today, we’ve had the shrimp roll once and the beef Kefta pocket twice (it was good the first time and worth repeating).

Farm Fresh – Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2014

Before our second Tequila Lunch, we decided to stop and get the bacon hash at Farm Fresh. Everyone all over the ‘net has been raving about how good it is… Should have known that with our luck, ours wasn’t that great.
