Favorite World Showcase Table Service Restaurant

This time, we will poll your most favorite restaurant inside the pavilions of the World Showcase at Epcot. I wish I could do the whole of Epcot, but since I'm limited to only a maximum of 10 options, I can only do just the World Showcase, and even then, I have to omit a few Signature restaurants.

I must confess I have not eaten at all of them, but Teppan Edo has been my favorite of the ones I have tried. Should I try Italy next time?

My #1 choice, and the place we go to every single time we are there (if we have the time), is Marreakesh.

We have a Moroccan restaurant in our neighborhood here in Chicago. I would say Marrakesh compares quite well with the one here. They did compromised a bit with the moroccan mint tea by not sweetening it (the traditional Moroccan tea is sweet), and I can't remember if the pastilla is sprinkled with both powered sugar and cinnamon power (this is a main course, not desert!), but other than that, the food is as good!

So I would highly recommend Marrakesh.

Hey Jim! Good to see you! mickey

I chose Le Cellier, too--I just love that restaurant. But Rose and Crown is another favorite.

It's been awhile since I've eaten at any of the WS table service places. I was actually torn between Teppan Edo & San Angel. I had areally good meal at San Angel in 2007. I wound up going for Teppan Edo because I have more experience with it.

I would like to try Tutto Italia.

Me too. Though my past experiences with Alfredo's makes me a bit hesitant...

Agreed!

le cellier is winning in a landslide, although i know one of the couples both love marrakesh. i'm sure it will get some votes when they vote.

Marrakesh was second place for me. That and Le Cellier are on our "must go to" list!

I will probably never go to Teppen Edo, Nine Dragons, or Tutto Italia because I go to GREAT hibachi places at home, Nine Dragons is too expensive for what it is, and I don't think Disney does great Italian. There are so many places in Jersey that has really good Italian, Chinese, and Japanese that I don't want to waste Disney dining on them!

That's pretty much true. I think it's fun to experience the different restaurants at least once, but once is enough for several of them. Plus, you only have so many meals you can eat and there are all of those resorts that have great dining as well!

Hi,

Caitiesus is right about Jersey having good Italian, and lots of other cuisines, too. There are four or five Italian restaurants (including Olive Garden), with another opening soon, within three miles of my house. Also two Thai restaurants, a Mexican grill, an Afghan restaurant, an Indian bistro, a few Chinese restaurants, and a Japanese restaurant. There's also Fuddruckers Five Guys, Applebees, Panera Bread, and Friendly's all within walking distance.

I love Panera Bread! I think the closest thing to it at Disney is Earl of Sandwich, but I could definitely see a high-quality sandwich/soup place doing well in, say, DHS.

I have to confess, I don't know what Afghan food is like.

Before I had their lamb entree, for dinner last week, I didn't either. There really isn't much except the salad dressing that's uniquely Afghan; the cuisine is a mix of that of the nations surrounding it (Russia and China, mainly).

I guess I will have to cast my vote for Le Cellier as my favorite, but it should be said the Chef's de France runs a close second. Waiters at both places went a long ways towards making our meals great. They were both very personable and knowledgeable.

I feel like the waiters at Le Cellier are always very nice, but they're usually so busy that they can't quite keep up. I think they need another Canadian or two in there! What do you recommend at Chefs De France?

I think that soup is delicious. Does Chefs de France still run the lunch special: onion soup, croque monsieur, and creme brulee for $14? That was years ago...great deal.

Jim, where in NJ are you? We're in East Windsor - about 20 minutes from Princeton.

I voted for Le Cellier, but I'm reconsidering Restaurant Marrakesh-- every time we go there we LOVE it, and I don't know any place else to get Moroccan food! Last time when I went to Chefs de France I thought it was great, but everyone else I was with was disappointed...

Too bad about Chefs de France. What were they disappointed with?

Also, any particular dishes you enjoy at Marrakesh?

Good morning, Teach!

I live in Voorhees, next to Cherry Hill in Camden County. Unfortunately, East Windsor is a lot easier to reach in a car than in NJ Transit.

I believe that in 2005, I ate at Marrakesh as part of the Candlelight Processional package, and thought it was great. I had the Lamb Meshoui, a huge leg of lamb cooked in its own juices. Delish!

Brad, the salad dressing was a white sauce. I'm not a salad eater so didn't care for it. The soup was a noodle and tomato topped with yoghurt.

That's true - closest train is Princeton, though buses go near my house.

But we're way off topic Smile
