Epcot QS dinner recommendations

Our trip is coming up soon (39 days to go!) and on our first night we are going to Epcot. We want to do a QS dinner somewhere. We expect to get there around 5 at the earliest (flight lands at 2, then DME to POFQ to check-in, then head to Epcot). It's the first day of the F&G festival and we want to see the topiaries. We will probably be very hungry since our flight leaves at 10 something in the morning so we'll just have snacks on the plane.

I've never done any of the QS locations in WS. I can't decide which I want to try! We may hit up several, depending on what we want to eat. We aren't terribly picky. I've never had sushi and always wanted to try it, but I'm not sure QS sushi would be a good first experience. Is it really good sushi at the Japan QS?

They all look really good and I'm having a terrible time deciding! I would like to have it picked out already so once we get in the park we can head straight to get something to eat. If we can't decide our default will probably be the Mexican QS.

Any favorites or suggestions from others would be greatly appreciated!

My favorite counter service in the WS is Tangierine Cafe in Morocco. Food is great, portions are huge.

I've been dying to try the Mexico CS place though, so I will probably try that on my next trip.

If you are planning to try sushi, do not get it from a CS place in the WS. I would recommend trying it at the CS sushi place in the Polynesian resort (Kona Island I think? Right next to Kona). It's very fresh & tasty there.

We liked France for yummy desserts.

Was not impressed with Mexico or China on our last visit.

I completely agree with this. Sunshine Seasons has lots of choices for different tastes and wonderful desserts.

Tangerine Cafe is amazing! So, so, good. I am not a huge meat fan, but their lamb is SO good. I really enjoyed my meal there last June and was sorry I didn't try eating there sooner!

Another vote for Tangierine Cafe. I like the chicken platter. I think it's better than several of the WS table services.

Definitely hit up the Tangerine Cafe. The Vegetable Platter is excellent and big enough to share. The hummus is excellent!

DH really enjoys the fish & chips QS in the UK. Also, Sunshine Seasons has a lot of choices and is very good.

Another vote for these two. If you come in through the FutureWorld entrance it may be easier stop at Sunshine Season as you work your way to the back f the park.

Another enthusiastic vote for Tangierine Cafe -- that's where we'll be headed when we arrive in June! It's a real gem.

Another vote for Tangeriene cafe!
Or my son loves the fish n chips quick service in England. you could always grab an order or two of this and head to Morocco if not everyone will love the Tangeriene Cafe.

QS Meal

Another thing to remember is they are including food kiosks around World Showcase, this should give you plenty of great options that otherwise aren't offered. Enjoy your trip.

My husband loves tangerine cafe but this time we tried the little bakery in Noroway and the ham, cheese, and apple sandwich was amazing and we got a sweet alomond pretzel for dessert!!! It was so yummy. The portion is huge!
