Teriyaki Rooster Bun: Steamed Bun crammed with Chicken, Veggies, and Teriyaki Sauce – $7.50
Within of this delicately well prepared bao bun is a good amount of shredded hen tossed in a sweet teriyaki sauce. The menu description statements there’s veggies in there, but there’s much more hen than vegetables—and that is a superior matter in our eyes! There is a whole lot of price listed here in the somewhat massive part for the value, specially in EPCOT Festival phrases. It’s a tasty and secure bet for this year’s competition.
*NEW* Takoyaki: Octopus, Inexperienced Onion and Cabbage Bites topped with Tonkatsu Sauce, Bonito Flakes and Nori – $8.50
This dish cuts easy but has a odd texture, kinda mushy and starchy. It is more of a fritter with a bit of octopus inside. The octopus is pretty flavorless. We won’t go out of our way for this 1 all over again.

The salmon has a great delicate texture and is certainly large high-quality. There is nothing at all chewy or way too fishy, it’s the excellent sushi style. The tabiko provides it a wonderful crunch and the rice is properly cooked. This a person is a acquire in our publications!
Yuzu Lemon Drop: Vodka, Yuzu and Lemon – $8
This drink smelled superb. It has the edge of a true tart lemon, with a sweet hit from the yuzu. You can taste the vodka as very well. It was served from a slushy equipment but came out liquid. Total, this is a good drink.
