Cider House Review 2018 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

Cider House yields across from the United Kingdom Pavilion for the 2018 Food and Wine Festival in the same spot.

I feel this is the sole Outdoor Kitchen where each food item yields precisely the same since the year earlier, although the Florida Beer and Ciderboys Ciders are new this season.

As who cares about my retirement accounts, we ordered one of everything this year.

Pear Cider-brined Shredded Corned Beef with Braised Cabbage and Branston Dressing with Pears — $5.50

I gave a 1/10 to this on Taste.

Because this past year, it seemed just like the above — it’s so moist and soggy that you can observe liquid recoil at the bottom of the down menu towards the left of the picture.

This year’s did not suffer from anything like that. The beef on its own was suitably salty with a pleasant chew, but I believed the Branston Dressing was far too sweet and the Braised Cabbage did not add nearly enough vinegar to balance it out. The strawberry flavors were absent, impossibly dropped in the creaminess of the overbearing dressing table.

However, the percentage is significant and at $5.50, doesn’t violate your bank. You might prefer the flavor combination over I did, however, I have never seen anybody raving about this dish.

Taste: 4/10

Value: 6/10

House-made Potato and Cheddar Cheese Biscuit with Smoked Salmon Tartare — $5.25

On our first walk around World Showcase, Cider House was from biscuits — they said they were baking and could be prepared in about ten minutes.

I ended up returning Saturday to place my purchase. By itself, the biscuit was crumbly and tasted much more of herb compared to cheese. The relatively large portion of salmon aided along with the saltiness of the fish together with the capers made for a tasty little sandwich.

Here’s last year’s that suffered from a pronounced, artificial lemon flavor and an excessive amount of caper.

Still, for $1.50 longer you’re able to get a wonderful bit of teriyaki-glazed salmon from Hanami in Japan and I believe that’s the smarter purchase. However, you might do worse.

Taste: 4/10

Value: 5/10

Freshly Baked Lemon Scone with Crème Fraîche and Mixed Berries — $4.25

Folks rave about this scone and I’ll admit that I don’t get it. On the other hand, what I was served this season tasted much less artificial than the past year’s along with the sugar did quite a wonderful job of balancing out the sour flavors from your lemon citrus. However, the fact that it’s gluten free way it’s bad almost-by-definition and it lacks the airy, fluffy quality which I prefer in my personal cake product. However, if you prefer ’em compact then you are in business. The accompaniments are flavorful on their own, but I wasn’t amazed after I dunked a sting in both collectively. But people do like this a good deal more than I do, so bear that in mind when you’re contemplating dropping $4.25 with this tiny loaf of bread.

Cider House Ciders

There are in fact four ciders on draft, the three that are promoted on the main menu along with also the Caribe Blood Orange Tropical Cider in the 6-ounce pour at the back. I would recommend trying the trip if you’ve interest, although the flavors are similarly sweet. McKenzie’s Black Cherry Hard Cider is my own personal favorite as it’s the least sweet and most delicate of the crowd. If not, get the Ciderboys Grand Mimosa Apple Orange Hard Cider when you are after the best apple cider, then the Florida Beer Company Caribé Pineapple Tropical Hard Cider if you enjoy pineapple over the other fruits, and the Hybrid Orange if you are an off-menu type of person.

Overall, there’s nothing that I would go back to here, which doesn’t necessarily mean nothing is well worth a go. The price points are below average and the parts are acceptable for the most part. You may prefer that the scone more than I do.
