We like to go to Cantina de San Angel in Mexico. The food is really good! We usually get the combination platter. It has a taco, burrito and a quesadilla. We also really like Sunshine Seasons. The last time we were there, I got the Asian food and it was delicious. My DH got some kind of Foccacia bread sandwich which he really enjoyed. HTH!

I'm having a geritol moment...I cannot remember the name of the restaurant but it's in China and it's a fast service chinese restaurant. I loved their orange chicken, rice and egg roll. My three year old ate it like a horse too!!

Thanks to the following poster that named my restaurant...I couldn't for the life of me remember it...lol!! Lotus Blossom Cafe

I love the Tangierine Cafe. The Lamb wraps are excellent, and I'm usually not a big fan of lamb. This has become my new favorite cs in Epcot.

I also like the Fish & Chips from the Rose & Crown in the UK.

And the Cantina de San Angel has great nachos and margueritas.

That's a tough one - I think Epcot has the best and most varied selection of CS places.

Some of my faves are the fish and chips from Yorkshire County Fish Shop in the UK, chicken and lamb schwarma from Tangerine Cafe in Morocco, and the Shanghai chicken and rice from Lotus Blossom Cafe in China.

I also enjoy the burgers from Electric Umbrella, and the grilled salmon from SUnshine Seasons food court in The Land.

Rose & Crown - can't beat the fish and chips.

Also as a side note, does anyone know if you can get food "to go" from the sit down resteraunts?

I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to try the French Onion Soup at Chef de France but I don't really want a full meal there... can I just walk up and order a bowl of soup "to go" ?

I am guessing no, but if so, that would be a great "tip."

We loved Sunshine Seasons in The Land pavillion - lots of choices in one place! I got soup and salad and it was excellent!

We love most of them but I'll give my vote to Sunshine Seasons in the Land pavilion. There is plenty to choose from and the food is great.

Tangierine Cafe is the best counterservice in WDW! Nuff said!

We love it!

Not sure if they do to go, but I have seen people go there and just order the soup.

Oh yeah, and our favorite is Yakitori House because we love the Sukiyaki Beef!

We believe the best CS in the World is in WS. Our favorites include:
Cantina de San Angel in Mexico for the combination platter
The Tangerine Cafe in Morocco for the lamb Sharma Platter and the meatball platter
Harry Ramsden's Fish & Chips at the Yorkshire County Fish in the UK
The Hot Dog (and a cold Beer) at Sommerfest in Germany and
The French Bakery in France
Have a Great Trip
