Morocco Booth Menu & Review: 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival

Morocco’s Global Marketplace is our next stop at the 2019 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, as we continue our reviews around World Showcase. In this Walt Disney World dining review, we’ll share menu prices & info, food photos, and what’s worth the money or Disney Dining Plan credits–and what isn’t.

We’ve been hot and cold on the Morocco booth over the last few years, with it going from one of our favorites to least favorites in only the course of a couple years.

While the Morocco Global Marketplace of 2019 is still far from greatness, it has made a couple of big leaps in the right direction. Let’s take a look…

For starters, here’s the Morocco menu:

  • NY Strip Steak Green Shermoula Flatbread with fresh Radish and Tomato Salsa
  • Spicy Hummus Fries with Cucumber, Tomatoes, Onions, Tzatziki, and Chipotle Sauce
  • Chocolate Baklava: Rolled Phyllo Dough with Toasted Almonds and Dark Chocolate Sauce

…and our thoughts and photos of each food item…

NY Strip Steak Green Shermoula Flatbread ($9) – This is pathetic. It’s not a flatbread, it’s a few pieces of steak (of varying quality and tenderness) in a stale tortilla.

For the price, this is arguably the biggest joke at the 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival. However, it’s tough to “top” the chicken fingers at the Italy Global Marketplace in terms of pure pathetic-ness.

Hummus Fries ($8) – My main complaint with the hummus fries remains that the portion is way too small. When this debuted a few years ago, it was twice the size and half the price–no joke.

That’s unfortunate, as these have a refreshing zest to them and taste great. The toppings are more generous than last year, which could help justify the purchase, but we still have a tough time on the value-for-money front with Morocco’s hummus fries.

Not recommended if paying out of pocket; highly recommended if you’re using the Monopoly money of Disney Dining Plan snack credits.

Chocolate Baklava ($4.50) – If you’ve ever talked to anyone ever who has tried to make baklava, the first thing they will bring up is how difficult it is to prepare. With that difficult and time consuming preparation often comes mixed results.

Not so with this chocolate baklava, which is flaky, dense, and features a variety of textures and flavors with each bite. It’s a delicious dessert, and for a relatively modest price tag, ranks as one of our top ‘must try’ snacks of the 2019 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

Finally, there’s the drink menu for Morocco:

  • Casa Beer
  • Laroque Chardonnay, Carcassonne, Languedoc-Roussillon
  • Red Organic Sangria
  • Mimosa Royale: Sparkling Wine and Orange Juice topped with Orange Liqueur

Overall, Morocco is once again a mixed bag. The steak flatbread could be good (Morocco has done a high-quality flatbread before) and the hummus fries would be good if they were about $3 cheaper or twice the size. Nevertheless, the baklava wows, and that’s what you should order if you’re heading to the Morocco booth.
