If enjoying awesome food is one of your favorite parts of vacation, you are not alone. Indulging in delicious food and trying new cuisine on a Walt Disney World vacation is a big part of the fun for foodies. If you are looking to get outside your comfort zone, Walt Disney World restaurants can deliver.
One of my favorite things about Disney dining is sampling food that is not available to me in my daily life. Some cuisine types are unavailable in my north Georgia town. Namely, Moroccan food is not a culinary option within driving distance. So, you can imagine that I love sampling Moroccan dishes at Walt Disney World Resort on vacation. Sit back and relax because this article is all about the best Moroccan food at Disney World!

Nothing beats a savory and yummy flatbread, and we have a great Mediterranean recommendation in EPCOT’s Tangierine Café: Flavors of the Medina. A delicious offering as part of the Flower & Garden Festival food offerings, this flatbread is great as a meal or a shareable bite. This flatbread features Za’atar, Artichokes, Olives, Mozzarella, and fluffy Feta Cheese. Pair this with a pomegranate mimosa for a sure-fire hit.
The Stone baked Moroccan bread with Hummus, chermoula and zhoug dips is a great shareable option for the table. If you are craving a meaty meal, try the grilled kebabs with carrot-chickpea salad and garlic aioli. This entrée is available in chermoula chicken and Moroccan-spiced lamb.

Spice Road Table Lounge in EPCOT World Showcase is a must-visit spot if you are craving delicious Mediterranean and Moroccan cuisine. Located in the Morocco Pavilion, this spot serves up small plates that are perfect for sharing and trying new dishes for the first time.
Start your culinary adventure with a glass of house-made sangria. Choose from white, red, or sparkling (sparkling is my pick) for only $13 per glass. The menu also boasts an assortment of beer and wine options that will pair perfectly with the food and offer a taste of something new. Forever a fan of sparkling wine, the Paul Cheneau Lady of Spain Cava Brut from Spain looks especially hard to pass up.
If you are looking for an alcohol-free beverage, why not try the iced mint tea or even the EARidescent Sip-a-bration. This fun beverage is served in a souvenir 50th-anniversary cup and consists of Minute Maid Premium Lemonade and Fruity Strawberry Punch mixed and served in a character cup.
Now on to the food; the first must-try food at Spice Road Table Lounge is the Dolmas. This $9 small plate is a bargain and a double win because it is also plant-based menu option. This dish consists of grape leaves filled with rice and savory herbs, marinated olives, and is served with a tart charred lemon. I love how far outside my comfort zone this dish pushes me, while still delivering on flavor.

We love a good sampler for getting a small taste of a large range of menu options. The Spice Road Table Sampler is only $15 but serves up popular proteins Lamb Kefta, Spiced Chicken with a flaky and cheesy Tiropitakia. If you are exploring Moroccan cuisine for the first time on vacation, why not snag a sampler, so you can taste more and learn what your favorite Moroccan foods are?
If you really enjoyed the chicken on the Spice Road Table Sampler, no worries, you can order it individually. The spiced chicken rings in at only $11 and is tossed in a bright Ras el Hanout, seasoning rub. The meal is served with a cool, creamy Mint Yogurt and fresh Tabbouleh. For those not in the know, Tabbouleh is a fresh salad composed of parsley, tomatoes, onions, and other veggies chopped finely and seasoned with olive oil, spices, and lemon juice.

Another excellent shareable option at Spice Road Table Lounge is the House-made Hummus Fries. These thick and chunky fries are another plant-based option fried to golden, crunchy perfection. These fries are served with a tangy Citrus Chipotle dipping sauce and preserved lemon. If you are craving a crunch and hummus fries don’t feel like the right choice, why not try the yummy fried calamari for $12? This battered and fried calamari is served with delectable Rémoulade and Harissa dipping sauces.
If you have a sweet tooth and are interested in tasting an assortment of cookies, drop by the Juice Bar in the Morocco Pavilion. This World Showcase pavilion has some excellent Moroccan food and dessert options. Drop by the Juice Bar to choose from a pastry assortment pack to enjoy small bites of pastries that may be new to you.
Purchase individual pastries for $2.50 each, or buy a 3 pack ($6.50), 5 pack ($11), or 7 pack ($15). With choices like Pistachio Baklava, Almond Crescent Cookie, Flogeres, Sesame Koulouria, Melomakarona, Kataifi Almond Briwat, and more you’ll have a hard time choosing what to include in your pastry pack! Pair a frozen mint tea with your pastry pack for $5.50.
Talk about a refreshing pairing, this will hit the spot during an afternoon in EPCOT. Take a seat beside World Showcase Lagoon to enjoy some downtime with these delicious treats. Who knows, you may even see Princess Jasmine nearby meeting Guests!
