The Singapore Marketplace – Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival

549

Singapore, what can we say? Oh yeah, chicken isn’t supposed to be gray! Each year we seem to give Singapore a hard time, they are our whipping boy. We love everything about the Food & Wine Festival, well everything but Singapore. Yes, we joke that “Singapore should go home” and on this years video, one of our friends who was watching the filming of the Singapore segment declared, “looks like puke”, but let’s face it for the last few years the offerings from singapore just haven’t been that good.

In 2011 it was the Shrimp on a Sugar Cane Skewer, the last two years it was the Spicy Beef Rendang, and always they come with the Singapore Sling. Now I do enjoy Hendricks Gin, but it just seems a waste in the Singapore Sling, besides that thing just tastes nasty, and it’s $8, there I said it, I feel better now.

So let’s talk about this year. Singapore is offering the same dishes as last year, Lemongrass Chicken Curry with Coconut and Jasmine Rice. This dish eats more like a stew and is not that flavorful, I’ll stop there, but add that chicken isn’t supposed to be gray and it should have a more flavor.

546

The other dish offered by Singapore is Seared Mahi Mahi with Jasmine Rice and Singa Sauce. Now last year when I tried this dish it was tasty, but the fish was dry. This year I will say the Mahi Mahi was moist and cooked well. I actually kind of liked the jasmine rice and singa sauce. But it’s still not a dish that I would go out of my way to get. Or even stop in to get if I was just walking by. There’s just too much other food to try at the festival. Then there’s the Singapore Sling, we didn’t try it this year, but I hear it’s still nasty, don’t waste the $8.

553

So there you have it, we’re still slamming Singapore, maybe we always will, maybe if they come back next year they’ll bring something new to try, we can always hope!

Week 2 of Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival – Episode 274

You can find out more about the things we tasted in Singapore on our weekly video which we posted Friday, October 10. On this show my friend John Donahue and I take you through the Farm Fresh booth, China, South Korea, Africa and Singapore, so check out the video and find out about all these marketplaces and next week we’ll have even more for you!

Cheers!

The Africa Marketplace – Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival

533

This year Africa has two food offerings and three wines. The first food, Beef Tenderloin Tips Berbere-style with Okra, Jalapenos, Tomato and Pap is quite good. It has a little  spice to it, that might have something to do with the jalapenos, I’m just sayin….but it’s quite flavorful. It is also the suggested Sommelier pairing along with the Wolftrap Red Blend (Syrah, Mourvedre, Viognier) which goes very well with the beef.

536

The second dish, South African Bobotie with Turkey and Mushroom, we had last year also, and I must say we weren’t very excited about it last year and we’re not very please with it this year either. Last year my wife Leslie tried this booth on the TwR video and John spliced in the footage on this years video so we could see the face she made, she hated it! I guess I’m just going to have to keep working on developing a taste for Bobotie, I’m not there yet!

537

We also tried another wine from Africa, the Fairview Pinotage. This was a very nice wine that John and I both really liked. Both John and I are big fans of Pinotage and this one was very good.

There is also a VAN Vintners Chenin Blanc offered in the Africa marketplace. We didn’t try this one, maybe you could check it out and let me know what you think.

Week 2 of Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival – Episode 274

You can find out more about the dishes and beverages we tried in Africa on our weekly video which we will post this Friday, October 10. On this Friday’s show my friend John Donahue and I will take you through the Farm Fresh booth, China, South Korea, Africa and Singapore, so check out the video and find out about all these marketplaces and next week we’ll have even more for you!

Cheers!

South Korea Martketplace – Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival

489

South Korea is one of the marketplaces that we definitely look forward to every year. The Kimchi Dog is one of our favorite dishes at the festival, last year I think we rated in our top five things from the festival and this year again, it’s very near to the top for me.

The Kimchi Slaw has a bit of a kick as well as the Spicy Mustard Sauce give the dog a big and nice spicy kick. The sommelier pairing is the Kimchi Dog and the iCing Grapefruit Sparkling Rice Brew which paired very well with the dog.

524

Another amazing dish that is offered here is the Roasted Pork Lettuce Wrap with Kimchi Slaw. This dish has been coming back for several years now and we always love it! The pork has a great flavor, and the kimchi slaw gives it a nice kick also. Warning, this does get a little messy. It’s designed to be picked up and eaten, and as one of my friends put it, you need a wet suit! ;) This just tells you how much juicy goodness there is in this dish!

529

We also tried another beverage from South Korea, the Bokbunjajoo – Bohae Black Raspberry Wine. We were not very impressed with it. I would have to suggest passing on it. It was a little too sweet, and just wasn’t for me.

You can find out more about the things we tasted in South Korea on our weekly video which we will post this Friday, October 10. On this Friday’s show my friend John Donahue and I will take you through the Farm Fresh booth, China, South Korea, Africa and Singapore, so check out the video and find out about all these marketplaces and next week we’ll have even more for you!
