Hanami: 2014 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

The sushi, including beef as well, was a wonderful primer to this dish.

The Japanese puffed rice cakes with green tea whipped cream and azuki was a really fun surprise! We very much enjoyed this extra dessert at the booth.

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.
