Greetings from Epcot’s Future World!!
We stopped by the Electric Umbrella today and were surprised to find that the menu has received a pretty substantial makeover.
My immediate reaction, honestly? I was kind of bummed! I know that Electric Umbrella isn’t really a prime destination when it comes to dining in Epcot, where so much variety can be enjoyed — especially around World Showcase.
But that’s exactly why it has been fun to to find some truly decent eats in this Future World Counter Service spot over the past couple years. The French Dip Burger has actually been one of the tops in regards to Quick Service burgers for some time now. And I’ve totally enjoyed the Sausage and Pepper Sandwich and the unique Veggie Naan Wich even more recently. Good surprises, all, for a place that mostly flies under the radar.
But they’re all gone from the new menu.
And in their place? Well, let’s go down the list. First we’ve got the Mojo Pork Burger, which is similar to the previous French Dip Burger in that it’s another meat-topped-with-even-more-meat sandwich.
Marinated Mojo Pork tops the 1/3 pound burger, and it’s all drizzled with a Cilantro Lime Aioli and served with fries.
And much as I may miss the French Dip Burger, I’d be lying if I said the new Brisket Sandwich didn’t have me intrigued.
