Today, we're making another stop at the Outdoor Kitchens of Epcot's International Flower and Garden Festival Urban Farm Eats. Urban Farm Eats is the place that showcases all-natural foods and top tips for "growing your own groceries."
Comfort your cravings with an incredible menu of all-natural food and drink - plus tips for growing your own groceries no matter what size space you have. The Urban Farm is a showcase of designs to inspire guests to grow more of their own foods. Around the outdoor kitchen Disney's horticulturists have created a creative homestead with raised garden beds, water collection, modern chicken coops, bee hives, and composting solutions all on display. The landscape here would stock your kitchen with vibrant, healthy foods.

We tasted several of the dishes at this outdoor kitchen, and each of us had a different favorite from the bunch. Overall the food at Urban Farm Eats is really solid and has something just about everyone can enjoy. While the flavors may not have been unexpected in this food, they were spot on and comforting.
My favorite dish was the Seared Pork Tenderloin with Mushroom Ragout, the traditional combination was straightforward and delicious, it would fit well right into the meal plans for any Sunday Super.
I liked the Watermelon Salad with Arugula, Feta and Balsamic Reduction, however I thought that it could have used more watermelon and feta, less arugula. It was pretty good, but didn't knock my socks off.
A surprise to everyone was the Crabless Cake with Crispy Vegetable Slaw that knocked it out of the Park. Replacing the crab in this fresh, crispy cake is tofu " but don't let that scare you because the flavor is fantastic, and for guests who don't eat seafood Disney crated a pretty fantastic version of a classic.
A few months ago we covered Absinth at the AbracadaBAR and fans of legendary drink responded with glee. Urban Farm Eats proves once again that the green fairy absolutely has a place in the World of Disney.
While we don't have the exact brand and combination for the Urban Fairy Cocktail, we can tell you that it's a refreshing well-balanced drink, featuring a soft floral absinth, cucumber, and lime flavors. It was a surprising favorite amongst my tasting crew, some who didn't think they would enjoy an absinth based drink. For a remarkable drink that may be one of the best of the fest, give the Urban Fairy Cocktail a try.
