Hanami: 2013 Epcot Food and Wine Festival
Japan’s booth — Hanami — features three vegetarian items, including the fun Frushi and the unfamiliar YakiSoba Pan.
**Try It Items.
- Frushi (Fresh strawberries, pineapple and cantaloupe rolled with coconut rice, atop a raspberry sauce sprinkled with toasted coconut and whipped cream)**
- Chirashi Hanazushi (Grilled Salmon, cooked shrimp and crab stick served over a bed of fragrant ginger rice with Volcano and Dynamite sauce)
- YakiSoba Pan (Fresh grilled carrots, onions and cabbage with Japanese noodles and teriyaki sauce served on a bun with mayonnaise and Beni Shoga)
- Green Tea Flan (Silky custard with macha green tea and caramel glaze)
- Yuzu Rita
- Fruit Sake
- Hana Awaka
- Frozen Kirin Ichiban
Kids will find the Frushi lots of fun!
The highly-anticipated Frushi lived up to its fun billing. It’s a great option for kids! This sweet, dessert sushi is a great choice if you like the fruit offerings.
While Yakisoba Pan consists of noodles on bread with sauce and veggies, it’s a dish that will be unfamiliar to many festival-goers. It’s certainly interesting.
Fans of cold seafood dishes will enjoy the Chirashi Hanazushi. We were won over by the sauce!
There isn’t a strong tea flavor in the Green Tea Flan. The best part? The caramel at the bottom!
Try a Frozen Kirin Beer!
