Epcot Food and Wine Festival Food Pictures: Hawaii and Caribbean Islands Booths

It’s time for more 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival booth food pictures! As always, if you want to see full coverage of each booth, check out our Epcot Food and Wine Festival Booth Pages! Click on any booth or country name for detailed information, menus, photos, and prices. We also wanted to share quick reviews of the booths during the festival.

Today — we’re off to two brand new World Showcase booths: Hawaii and the Caribbean!

Hawaii

Hawaii delights with a delicious pork slider this year — the added sweet and sour Dole pineapple chutney and spicy mayonnaise add even more layers of flavor.

I really liked this one, and was surprised to see pineapple baked into the roll!!

Kalua Pork Slider with Sweet and Sour Dole Pineapple Chutney and Spicy Mayonnaise -- $3.00

The Tuna Poke with Seaweed Salad is less “up my alley” than the pork slider, but it was very fresh and high-quality. I’ve been hearing raves from seafood lovers!

Tuna Poke with Seaweed Salad and Lotus Root Chips -- $3.75

The Mai Tai in Hawaii was lovely!! This is a must-buy for those mixed drink fans. Sweet, with a great flavor!

Seven Tiki Mai Tai -- $7.25

You can see more pictures, the full menu, and prices on our Hawaii Booth Page!

Caribbean Islands

Over in the new Caribbean booth, you’ll have the chance to sample the Jerk spiced chicken drumstick with mango salsa. This item is a huge serving, and the dark meat gives it some good flavor. Sadly, I was hoping for more Jerk seasoning on my portion, but it largely just tasted like…chicken.

Jerk spiced Chicken Drumstick with Mango Salsa -- $3.25

The Ropa Vieja with rice was a great local dish, but, again, didn’t sing the way I’d hoped it would. Still, it’s worth a try if you’re hitting the Caribbean booth.

Ropa Vieja (Braised Beef) with White Rice -- $3.50

The Frozen Dragon Berry Colada was veeeeeerrrry sweet! If you’re a pina colada fan, this might be for you!

Frozen Dragon Berry Colada -- $7.25

The Frozen Rock Coconut Mojito was my favorite of the bunch at the Caribbean booth! Tart with just a hint of mint, I was a fan from the get-go. Interesting, since I’m not usually a mojito lover!

Frozen Rock Coconut Mojito -- $7.50

    I have the mojito and the ropa vieja at the caribbean booth and was disappointed in both. The ropa vieja was very dry and tasted like it had sat under a heat lamp for awhile. I also would have preferred more coconut with the mojito, but it was ok overall. Can’t wait to try Hawaii on the next trip!

  2. Bill says:

    That Kalua Pork Slider really looks good as does the Frozen Rock Coconut Mojito. They’re on my list.

  3. Sarah says:

    About how big are those drinks? I can’t wait to try to coconut mojito!!

    The Tuna Poke with Seaweed Salad is the only thing I’m interested in at these two booths, even though it screams post 50′s Japanese fusion of some sort.

    I was hoping form some sweet potato from Hawaii. Pre-contact diets contained a huge amount of taro, and it’s still a staple today. This booth is a bit of a lost opportunity.

    Oh, and one more week. Yippeee!

    Technically a Mai Tai should be neither particularly sweet nor orange. Not saying it might not be good, just not a true Mai Tai.

    I’ve never been to F&W before, and head there in a week. Excited! Quick question: do the food pavilions accept debit/credit cards, or cash only? I’ve seen a lot of people point out the gift card you can buy, but if they take other cards I don’t see the need for it. Thanks!

  7. AJ says:

    Ashley — Let us know what you think of Hawaii! Agreed; we were a little disappointed in Caribbean. (Great to see you on Sunday!!)

    Bill — Let me know what you think! I could definitely go for another mojito!

    Sarah — They’re served in the same glasses used for 6oz beers…so…6 oz??

    GG — And post-50′s Japanese fusion is bad? ;-) Can’t wait to hear what you think of the tuna!!

    Krillgat — I must say, it wasn’t my first drink of the day… ;-) Thanks for your feedback!

    John B — Yay!! So excited FOR you! The pavilions do accept credit cards as well as room key payments, snack credits, and gift cards. I usually pay with my room key.

    I am so looking forward to the F&W festival. And my husband and I are both dying to try the slider from Hawaii. Did you say there’s pineapple IN the roll?? Sounds amazing! We leave tomorrow for WDW. YAY!

    We liked Hawaii very much. I thought the mai tai had a not-too-sweet fruity taste, the tuna poke was yummy to this sushi-lover (and supposedly quite traditional for Hawaii), and DD9 LOVED the seaweed salad! OTOH, the Caribbean booth was a bit disappointing. The drumstick was OK, but we got just a tiny bit of salsa. The colada tasted exactly like a semi-frozen strawberry Gogurt, and I agree that the mojito could use more coconut taste.

    I agree with Galloping Gourmond – I wish Disney would serve some poi either during food and wine at the Hawaiian booth or even at the Poly at one of the restaurants. Ever since I learned about it and what it is I’ve always wanted to sample it and I thought Disney might be the place. I guess I”ll have to take a trip all the way out to Aulani though to get a taste of authentic hawaii. That tuna poke and seaweed salad looks delicious btw!!! I’m sure that and the slider would be fabulous!

    These were two of my favorite booths this year! I am one of those accused seafood lovers and I just LUVVVVED that tuna poke. Hubby & I agreed the pulled pork was awesome, too, and we thought the flavors of both dishes from The Caribbean were fabulous! We skipped on the drinks to save $$$ … next time!

  12. Galloping Gourmond says:

    AJ – I’m just being a little snobby. My favorite FW booths are usually traditional foods of the countries and not variations on foods closely associated with other places.

  13. catherine says:

    I haven’t tried the pork slider yet. I hate mayonnaise. Does the mayonnaise taste like mayonnaise? I’ll have to skip it if it does. I also think the Maitai is good but too small for 7 bucks, for that money I’ll order the Captain’s Maitai at the pool bar.

    I love the Tuna Poke.
