Japan Booth Menu and Review (2021 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Are you a fan of sushi? If so, you’ll definitely want to check out the Japan booth at this year’s Food and Wine Festival.

In fact, it’s one of our “not to miss” choices here in Japan, along with the Kochi Lemon Drop cocktail that was also very, very good.

Quick sidenote: we noticed on one evening that even though this booth was listed to remain open until the end of the night, it started closing about 20 minutes before the rest of the park. The reason for closing early remains unclear, but, either way, if this is on your to-do list, make sure you visit well before closing time just in case (as you should with everything else that’s at the top of your list).

Price: $6.50
Special Diets: N/A
Rating: 2.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Good proportions of bun to filling. Unfortunately, didn’t like the taste of the filling at all.
Heather: The filling in this bao bun was really good, but I worried I was eating my son. Thanks, Pixar.
Felicia: Dry bun with a mild chicken teriyaki stuffed inside. Not great.

Tempura Shrimp Sando

Crunchy tempura shrimp served with yuzu crab, green onions, and eel sauce on a bun.

Tempura Shrimp Sando - Japan

Price: $6.75
Special Diets: N/A
Rating: 3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Nicely flaky, eel sauce delicious, bun doesn’t add to the flavor. Could’ve gone without that part.
Felicia: The bread is dry and the shrimp, crab, and other toppings are very fishy tasting. Doesn’t taste fresh.

Spicy Hako Sushi

Spicy tuna and salmon served box-style with sushi rice, red tempura crunchies, and spicy volcano sauce.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Good proportion of fish to rice, delicious fish.
Heather: I really enjoy this flavor. Spicy without being too spicy.
Felicia: I really liked this. The volcano sauce has a nice amount of heat and the tuna and salmon are delicious.

Kochi Lemon Drop

Rating: 4.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Fantastic pop of lemon.
Heather: I loved this! So crisp and refreshing. Fantastic drink option.
Felicia: Delicious and tastes just like a lemon drop. You can definitely taste the vodka but in a good way.
Allyson: For a lemon drop, this is good. I love the lemon flavor.

Ozeki Platinum Sake

This Junmai Daiginjo sake by Ozeki Platinum Sake is refreshingly dry with a slight fruity flavor.

Rating: 2.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Very light flavor. Maybe too light.
Heather: Hear me out…the end of this drink is missing. The flavor stops before I was ready.
Felicia: Don’t care for sake and I didn’t like this. Wouldn’t recommend unless you appreciate sakes.
Allyson: Not a sake fan and not a fan of this.
