With several World Showcase booths at the 2019 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival reviewed, we’re going to bounce to Future World for some options in the “Next Eats” area. Located behind Club Cool and the Innoventions building, these booths are among our favorites at this year’s event.
We’ll start with Earth Eats, which only has two food items on the menu, and should be a quick review. Per Walt Disney World, Earth Eats will “turn your taste buds upside down with a medley of flavors that add a delish twist to healthy, hearty fare!”
It’s a cool booth with a modern, eco vibe to it. This year, rather than featuring two different burgers (decidedly unhealthy fare), there are two dishes featuring Impossible meatless-meat. These still aren’t the healthiest options, but at least it’s an interesting way to expose Walt Disney World guests to this burgeoning brand, which is healthier than real meat, by comparison…
Here’s the menu for Earth Eats:
The IMPOSSIBLE™ Burger Slider with Wasabi Cream and spicy Asian Slaw on a Sesame Seed Bun (V)
IMPOSSIBLE™ Cottage Pie: IMPOSSIBLE™ Ground Meat with Carrots, Mushrooms, and Peas topped with Mashed Cauliflower, White Beans, and Mozzarella (V)
And our photos and reviews of the foods at Earth Eats…
IMPOSSIBLE Cottage Pie – I hesitate to review this because it was incredibly hot out when we ate it, I was tired, and this was simply too heavy for me at the time.
Sarah, on the other hand, loved it. This’ll probably be a great option come October or November.
The IMPOSSIBLE Burger – Since first trying it last year, Impossible burgers have really won me over. They are getting more and more convincing, and both Impossible and Beyond leading the way.
If you’ve never had one, give this a try. It’s juicy and savory, and you might just not be able to tell it isn’t meat. The wasabi cream helps, too. I’ve said before that even the best vegan burger isn’t as good as the worst beef burger, but that’s changing.
Suja Cold Pressed Juice Flight – This is a Suja juice being poured from bottles.
The first one I tried tasted distinctly like pickle juice, which was not a good first impression. Things got better from there, but that first swig really soured me on the Suja.
Overall, Earth Eats is my least favorite booth in the Next Eats area, even with the solid Impossible creations. If you’re vegan, you might have a lack of better alternatives and thus feel differently. Carnivores are better off with all of the other booths in this area of Future World.
