1 Day at EPCOT, Where to eat?

I'll be in EPCOT for 1 day in a April. There are soooo many places to eat there and I just could not choose. I figured all you knowledgeable DIS'ers can help me out. So if you had to choose one or two places to eat in EPCOT what would they be?

If you want quick service, you can't beat the food court @ the Land Pavilion!!

I also love Via Napoli for table service.

My parents love Coral Reef. I ate there last June with them when they went. I had a New York Strip with mashed potatoes and it was delicious. Everyone loved what they got.

My family does QS at world showcase. My Mom and I get mexican, my Dsis gets chinese, and my dad gets food in germany, and my other dsis gets Moroccan. It's fun because we get to tour and we all eat what we like!
Another time, we 'snacked' around the world, sharing small samples from places around the world showcase, chips and guacamole in mexico, egg rolls in china, cheese plate in france, etc.
With one day in epcot, it's easy to overlook the world showcase, but it is worth it to go and walk it, even if you end up skipping a ride or two to do the WS instead. (up to you though of course lol!)

At least twice every trip we eat around the world, we both LOVE that! We start in Mexico and share a counter service meal (or sometimes just a snack) in each country before moving on to the next. We don't always get through the whole world showcase, but if we don't we just start from there on iur next EPCOT day. RECOMMENDED!!

My favourite counter service is La Cantina De San Angel in Mexico, I LOVE IT, and I'm not even generally a fan of Mexican food! I haven't been to WDW since May, but still frequently dream about the Empanadas de Queso and the Paletas with mango and chili. I'm obsessed!

We really like sitting outside eating by the little stream outside the counter service in Japan, the food is good enough, but not amazing.

And we love Sunshine Food Court, but mostly because when we eat there it means it's the first night of our WDW holiday!! It's a tradition. They have a lot of different food, not all great but plently of good stuff to choose between. Oh and lots of amazing cakes and desserts!

Table service: Coral Reef, Akershus and Teppan Edo!

I love the Empanadas de Queso also!! They're a must do for every trip!! You can start with those in Mexico, then go to Norway for schoolbread and Germany for Karamel Kuche's treats for dessert!

For TS, my family loves Biergarten and I love Le Cellier!
