The trip report is over, but I still have a couple of posts left in me! In particular, food reviews. If you want to catch up on my Dopey experience, you can read all the posts in this particular trip report here. Ready? Let’s go!
And now we come to my final food review from our Dopey trip. Sigh. Don’t worry, though; I saved a good one for the finale!
Today we’re talking about that shining beacon of Epcot: La Cava del Tequila. Furnisher of my first ever tequila shot, this comparatively new restaurant holds a special place in my heart. For that, but also for their spectacular margaritas.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. Pat and I unexpectedly wound up eating here to, as miraculously, around 2PM in the afternoon, there was practically no one there. I’ve heard about people stampeding in when they open, so this was a surprise to me, but in no time flat we were seated at our own little table and everything. It was awesome.
I don’t remember our server’s name, but I remember Pat noting that her badge said that she was, in fact, from Tequila, Mexico. She was not particularly bubbly but got the job done.
Pat, being a traditionalist, got a standard house margarita, which he declared quite well done. As for me, well – I always think about branching out, honest I do, but I just had to order my beloved cucumber margarita. First off, it comes with a CHILI SALT rim, which is basically the best thing ever. Add to that the legit big chunks of cucumber that float inside the drink that suck up the flavor and then explode between my teeth when I fish them out of the dregs. LOVE.
On to the snacks! We ordered chips with a trio of dips: guacamole, salsa, and queso. The guacamole was good but not revolutionary; nothing made it stand out. We were not huge fans of the salsa as we both like a fine chop and this was more on the chunky side. The queso was really good, creamy without getting all congealed at the top like they sometimes do. Not much a kick, though – they should give you a spicy option.
So we munched on chips and sipped our margaritas and chatted about our trip and nothing much happened, but it was one of those quiet happy times that make me love Walt Disney World so much. Long live World Showcase!
That about wraps up the food reviews I wanted to hit from my January trip. Sad face. But I still have one more post – happy face! Up next: my Dopey takeaways. In the immortal words of Gene Starwind: you better get ready!
