Oh, this looks soooo good. I'm going to be there in two weeks, but I had no idea this was even going on. As if I wasn't excited enough to be getting back there already...

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Such a fun day with soo much good food and beverage. Halloumi is still my top pick however they added quite a few runners up which chuck listed. The only two others I strongly suggest is the Mac N Cheese with Canadian Bacon in Canada as well the Meatballs in Scandinavia. Quite sad I will only make it once to the event this year though my bank account is probably relieved.

Thanks for the fun day and update he Angry Scottsman!

Ps - nips and tit-tays!

^Yep--the Canadian mac and cheese with bacon was very good, indeed. But, as we know, Canadians know a lot about mac and cheese. ;)

Had a blast on Sunday at Food and Wine. Here are my quick thoughts on the dishes I tried:

Steak - Wish is was cooked a little less, but whenever they're serving mass amounts of it they usually cook it closer to medium well, so I'm ok with that. Amazing flavor with the crust. Probably my favorite thing.

Cheese in Greece - Always amazing. I could only handle one serving this year!

Cheese soup from Canada - As Chuck said, it's much better this year. Glad I tried it again!

Shrimp Fritters - Very tasty, but could've used some more shrimp. The dipping sauce compliments it very well.

Pork Slider - Huge portion. It was good, but could've used a little more seasoning.

Mac and Cheese with Bacon - Delicious. Right up there with the steak for my favorite dish of the day.

Scottish Egg - Always a treat. My egg was a bit overcooked, but you can't go wrong with one of these.

Honestly, the only "miss" was probably the pork slider, and that wasn't even something I'd consider "bad". They really upped their game this year. I'm glad it worked so well last year, because this should be an annual event. It's not on par with Epcot's festival (but what is?), but it's about as close as you're ever going to get. Hoping they do it again next year, because if they do, I'll be there!

I can't imagine how many "protein spills" occur throughout this festival.

How does it work with the food? Is everything a la carte, or do you pay a fee for all you can eat?

Everything is a la carte. They have several different kiosks for each country/area. Most dishes range from the $4-$6 range, so it can get pretty pricey. I felt like the portion sizes were a little bit bigger this year, so it was actually a pretty decent price considering it's inside of a theme park. If you're going to drink and eat all day, I'd plan on spending at least $75-100.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I blew about $100 yesterday using the cashless wristband. But it was s-o-o-o-o-o good . . .
