Take a stroll into Tangierine Café, where it reminds me of Aladdin. It is located in the Morocco area of Epcot’s World Showcase. If you’re lucky, you might be able to spot Aladdin and Jasmine close by.
This quick service restaurant serves up shawarma, wraps, and different types of platters.
The meat on the large skewers look severely processed. Traditionally, you will be able to see the different layers of meat, but this just looks like it was ground up with filler and spices, then moulded into shape.
We got 2 platters and ate outside in the shade.
Shawarma Chicken and Lamb Platter has a side of hummus, tabouleh and couscous salad with Moroccan bread. Very flavourful items and I liked the platter as you don’t have to get messy eating a wrap.
Shawarma Lamb Platter has the same side as the other platter. The only difference is the meat.
They have a few different items for dessert, but we went with the baklava.
Baklava is a sweet pastry made of filo, chopped nuts and honey. It was very sweet and we only could have a few bites each.
To wash all that food down, coke and water had to do. We usually end up sharing the coke and saving the water for later when we need it. It’s a lot easier to carry it around the park or put it into our bag without spilling.
Overall, the food was good compared to some other quick service restaurants in Epcot. If you compare this to real authentic Moroccan cuisine, it doesn’t even come close.
