Review: Tangerine Delight Slushie at Spice Road Table Juice Bar

On a recent stroll around Epcot’s World Showcase, I paid a visit to the Spice Road Table Juice Bar in the Morocco Pavilion. It was a hot afternoon (no surprise there!), so I was seeking out the Chef-created ice cream to cool down a bit.

However, I noticed a few new additions to the non-alcoholic Oasis Slushies on the menu: the Desert Rose and the Tangerine Delight have joined the Royal Blue Slushie.

Since I was after anything cold at that point, I thought I would try something new.

Guests could previously find the Desert Rose (made with Pink Lemonade) and Royal Blue Slush (made with Blue Raspberry) at the Morocco Oasis Kiosk which also offered the Sultan’s Colada and the Moroccorita cocktails.

Since the arrival of Spice Road Table, that kiosk has been removed, so it’s nice to know that some – in fact, most — of those offerings are available at the Juice Bar (by the way, it’s a little difficult to read in the photo, but the price for a non-alcoholic Slushie is $5.99).

Tangerine Delight was new to me, so I decided to give it a whirl!

I am SO glad I did… this simple slush packs a TON of flavor. Everything you need to know about it is [Read more…]

Photos and Review Part 1: The NEW Spice Road Table in Walt Disney World’s Epcot!

Hooray! We’re finally celebrating our first taste of Spice Road Table!

Spice Road Table in Disney World's Epcot

We’ve been eating our little hearts out at Epcot’s newest tapas restaurant and we can’t wait to tell you all about it!

Our review will be broken into a few parts, since there’s SO much to share!

Spice Road Table will be soft opening on Saturday for the public (a grand opening has not yet been scheduled), and we want to hear what you think! The tapas-only restaurant features small plates (which means you can order a LOT!) as well as specialty drinks, a full bar, wines, beers, and more.

There’s even some chef-crafted ice cream (we got to try all five flavors!!) — scroll down to see our review and some fun pics!

But first, let’s take a look around…

The space combines 60 indoor seats and 120 outdoor seats, so guests will be comfortable no matter the weather. Now, let’s take a peek INSIDE the restaurant!

As you can see, the space inside is small, but well appointed. There is a view of the water from every single table through the giant wall of windows looking onto World Showcase Lagoon.

Yep — this will absolutely be a hot ticket for the fireworks!

Here at Rita’s you can get drinks or drinks. And some chips maybe.

Choose from regular Lemon-Lime or Strawberry Margaritas, or opt for the Grand, which comes with a “splash of liqueur” and a slightly higher price tag.

There’s also a non-alcoholic version available called the Tropicool.

If you absolutely must have something to soak up that tequila, there are a few varieties of chips available.
