If you are visiting Epcot, you will want to find your way inside the Mexico Pavilion in World Showcase. You will forget that you are at Walt Disney World Resort and will feel as if you have been transported to a quaint Mexican village marketplace. Once inside, wander back to the San Angel Inn Restaurante. This table service restaurant has a unique open air design and an amazing menu. With views of the marketplace and the boat ride Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros, you can enjoy the views from your twilight and candle lit tables.
After being seated, you are brought complimentary chips with two types of salsa. They are both delicious!
San Angel Inn has some tasty appetizers to choose from if the chips and salsa aren’t quite enough for you! These Tostados de Tinga are corn tortillas filled with pulled chicken, beans and queso fresco.
If you enjoy seafood, check out the Camarones a la Diabla! Diablo style shrimp with poblano rice on a bed of yuca puree and cascabel chile sauce. Trust me- this combination is AMAZING!
When it comes to the entrees, you will not find the typical “tex-mex” style meals. This food is full of flavor! I enjoyed the Pollo a las Ragas for my meal and I was not disappointed! The grilled chicken is served with poblano rice, peppers, onions, cream sauce and queso fresco. I was pleasantly surprised at how much food came with this dish.
If you like stuffed peppers, then you must try the Chile Relleno! The Poblano pepper is stuffed with pork, pine nuts and almonds with a roasted tomato sauce. More nuts and cheese cover the already delectable dish! Served with rice, it’s a very satisfying meal.
No review of a Mexican restaurant would be complete without discussing some of the Margarita options! My friend had the Avocado ‘rita and I had the Wild Passion Fruit. Both choices are quite tasty and you can’t go wrong with either one. If you think that you are up to it- they have two Tequila Flights to choose from as well.
San Angel Inn Restaurante accepts the Disney Dining Plan as one table service credit. Advance Dining Reservations are encouraged, but I have been able to snag a walk up with a minimal wait. If it suddenly starts to rain, many of the restaurants will be ‘flooded’ with guests trying to stay dry.
DIStracted Tip: Try checking in a little early for dinner if you are wanting a walk-up. 4pm may be a little early, but the rest of the crowds will be still be walking around the park. My suggestion is to enjoy an early meal and then grab a snack to enjoy later while waiting on IllumiNations.
