Food Pictures from La Hacienda de San Angel

The Orlando Sentinel has an incredible group of food and decor photos from Epcot’s new La Hacienda de San Angel, a casual dining Mexican restaurant that will be opening for walk-ins on Thursday of this week!

Here’s the Parillada La Hacienda, a sampler dish featuring chicken, flank steak and other appetizers; and the shrimp tacos. But this is just a “taste” of the 21-photo slide show over on the Orlando Sentinel’s website!

The Sentinel also has a great interview with Richard Debler of San Angel Inn, LLC, the company that owns both San Angel Inn and La Hacienda de San Angel. According to the interview, the backstory of the restaurant revolves around the Hacienda being a residential home that’s been turned into a restaurant:

As guests enter they may notice that the small room to the right is the former pantry and the first room the former dining room of the home. Next they enter the grand salon. And it soon it becomes clear that the woman of the house was an artist. A kiln is obvious to one side and the handcrafted decor showcases the “owners” personal tastes and talent.

    It looks like this restaraunt is slowly but surely coming together.

    They really do need a more original paint job on the exterior though is what I say.

  4. I’m looking forward to checking out this restaurant tomorrow at the press event.

  5. Can’t wait to try it out tomorrow night either! :D It’ll be interesting to see how they can handle all the crowds that stop there first. :)

    The food looks really good, but i’m really bummed about the building itself. Looks like a big eye sore around World Showcase. I can’t remember the old area before the construction of this one. But it must not have been that big…

    The food here looks really good. I was always disappointed with the restaurant that was in Mexico previously, but this looks like a big improvement!

    Food looks fantastic, but I really love the decor too – all the artisan glass is a breath of fresh air. It will be great to have a new addition to a beloved attraction. Let us know if it tastes as good as it looks!
