Our Walt Disney Epcot adventure continues. Unfortunately, it continued right into the first bad (and it would turn out, only bad) food experience on the trip.  The Mexican restaurant inside the pyramid is not, as Charlie Sheen would say, winning.  In fact, it is the opposite of winning.  It is losing.  It is losing badly.  It was an unexpected disappointment because I was really looking forward to a good chimichanga or enchilada.  Instead, we were served dashed hopes and lost dreams (okay, now I’m serving hyperbole) …

Lunch in Epcot Mexico

The Mexican restaurant was located inside of the pyramid ...

Indoor Mexican Restaurant at Epcot

The interior of the restaurant featured a night scene, a ride, shops, and market place.

I didn’t even bother to take pictures of the appetizers.  They weren’t good.  I got some pictures of the food.  It still wasn’t great.  Not to mention, I spent the entire meal waiting for drink refills due to the spice of the food.  Waiters dropped glasses near the kitchen, nearly dropped a huge stack of plates, and the salsa dip wasn’t very enjoyable.  The only high point was the sweet tea was flawless.  It was probably the best sweet tea Aaron or I have ever had to the point we talked about it after leaving for quite some time.  

Enchiladas Verdes de Pollo

I ordered the Enchiladas Verdes de Pollo which is corn tortillas filled with pulled chicken, covered with green tomatillo sauce, topped with sour cream, queso fresco and onions, served with black refried beans.

Sirloin con Chilaquiles

The Sirloin con Chilaquiles is grilled sirloin with chilaquiles (layers of fried corn tortilla, green tomatillo sauce, topped with queso fresco, onions, and sour cream) served with black refried beans.

Pollo a Las Rajas

Aaron ordered the Pollo a Las Rajas, which is grilled chicken breast served with red peppers and onion cream sauce, poblano rice, and queso fresco.

Oh, and here is one of their desserts, which was good.

Isla Flotante

The Isla Flotante was caramelized lime meringue served over vanilla sauce and mixed berries. Everyone else had caramel ice cream, or Helado de Dulce de Leche.

The total ticket was probably around $150 to $200 or so.  I’d never come here again.  There’s no point in giving them another try, it just isn’t my style and it’s not worth the money to me.  This may help you understand how dissatisfied I am: I would have been happier paying the same amount for a round of Big Macs, fries, and Coca-Cola products from McDonald’s.  I mean that literally.  Everything else has been so great we were bound to hit a snag eventually.
