The Perfect World Showcase Counter Service Meal

The Perfect World Showcase Counter Service Meal

Welcome to those of you joining me from Home is Where the Mouse Is and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail. Today we are discussing how we piecing together some of our favorite Disney foods to create the perfect Disney meal. I decided to choose counter service items from Epcot’s World Showcase. And I made Drew help me. 🙂


We both agreed that we would start our pursuit of the perfect World Showcase counter service meal in Morocco at the Tangierine Café. We both love the vegetarian platter that comes with hummus, tabouleh, lentils, falafel, marinated Olives, and fresh Moroccan bread.

Main Course

Our main course choices were completely different and on opposite sides of the World Showcase. Figures. But the more exercise the more we can eat right? Drew chose the fish & chips from Yorkshire County Fish Shop in the UK Pavilion.

I decided on the vegetable torte from Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe in Norway. This is one of those it tastes way better than it looks in photographs items. The torte has roasted mushrooms, spinach, potatoes, Jarlsberg and Muenster Cheese. Yum! It is loaded with veggies which is awesome and has been cooked perfectly every time I’ve had it.

In reality we probably wouldn’t get a side but we both wanted to include the Nudel Gratin, baked macaroni with cheese custard, from Sommerfest in Germany. It is sooooo good and is probably the best mac and cheese we’ve had at Walt Disney World. It’s a huge portion so you could make it a meal if you wanted.

We agreed on the same pavilion for dessert but we chose different spots. Drew would end his meal with the Chocolate Macaron from L’Artisan des Glaces in the France Pavilon. I’ve tried it and I have to agree that it is really, really good. I feel like it’s how chocolate is supposed to taste, not too sweet but still has so much flavor.

My dessert choice would be the Macaroon with Raspberry and Lime Cream from Les Halles Boulangerie & Pâtisserie. I am someone that likes to try different things when we visit the parks but I get this beauty on almost every trip. It’s sweet yet tart which I love. And the fresh raspberries are just delicious.

  1. […] Stop: The Perfect World Showcase Counter Service Meal with Rolling With the Magic Having a great meal does not mean you have to schedule it at a sit down […]

    I don’t think we’d get along well when it comes to eating! 😉  Of this list I think the hummus is all I’d eat!  I’m as picky as a 5 year old and I don’t like cheese (or any dairy for that matter, except ice cream)!  Or maybe I do need to eat with you to try to expand my palate!

  3. CapMagicalMem they changed up the menu and added a few things so it’s there all the time now.

  4. disneyonwheels Becca_LoveOurDisney Is the Nudel Gratin available all the time?

  5. Becca_LoveOurDisney that’s tough! I would probably have to pic the Nudel Gratin from Germany. It was soooo good!

  6. Becca_LoveOurDisney says:

    Yum…..this all looks so good. If you had to only pick one of these items, which would it be?

  8. Mickey_MDOD It looks a little smaller in the photo than it really is. It’s a side item but I think it’s still a pretty good portion. I could definitely make a meal out of it. 🙂

  9. JenniferKaufman says:

    There is SO much in WS that I’m impressed you even tried to take it on! 🙂
    For me it would totally depend on the day. Off-hand though, I’d say Cheddar Cheese Soup (CS during Food & Wine Festival ;)), the lamb shawarma platter from Tangerine Cafe and any number of goodies from karamel kuche!

  10. Mickey_MDOD says:

    I think the mac and cheese sounds really good.  Is the picture you shared from the Food and Wine festival (and a smaller portion) or is that a normal size portion?  If it’s normal sized, I’m not sure that’s enough to share!  Thanks!

    Baked macaroni with cheese custard – GET OUT!! That looks awesome.

  12. JodiWhisenhunt Everything! haha Really. 🙂

  13. LisaDiDomenicoCameron There is always a vegetarian option but I do find it hard when I’m not really fond of that vegetarian option. But I think the World Showcase is one of the best places to find spots that will make everyone happy.

  14. DadForDisney I’m a pretty adventurous eater and I love trying new things at Disney. I do have a few favorites that I like to have almost every trip though. 🙂

  15. Jenn Lissak I pretty much love everything from the bakery in Norway. They have a salmon sandwich that Drew really likes.

  16. mandadisneyblog I don’t remember it being almondy and I like almond. You should give it a try! 🙂

  17. mandadisneyblog says:

    Oh wow that mac and cheese looks delish!! I’m keeping this one in mind! 😀 The macaron looks amazing too 🙂 I’ve never tried one but I’ve heard they have an almondy taste? Is that true? I hope not because I’m not all that fond of almond flavour and it looks so yummy!! 😀 xxx

  18. Jenn Lissak says:

    This totally looks like a meal I could go for! That vegetable tart looks and sounds fantastic – I’m glad you said it tastes better than it looks… We often walk in there and think hmmmm and leave without trying much (other than school bread) .  I’ll definitely have to add that to my must try list! Have you had anything else from there that you like?

  19. FrontierlandSta says:

    Yum! Apparently I need to try something other than chicken strips at Epcot! I had no idea Germany had macaroni! And the food from Morocco and Norway looks good too!

  20. DadForDisney says:

    Great choice.  My only change would be to get a Pressed Brioche Ice Cream Sandwich from France.  There are a lot of places that I wouldn’t try….not very food adventurous.  Are you more food adventurous at Disney World?

  21. LisaDiDomenicoCameron says:

    I love your choices, mainly because yours are vegetarian and I’m always looking for new choices The Morocco dish looks delicious! Do you find it hard to find places that have great food for both meat eaters and vegetarians?

  22. Haydennnn says:

    That chocolate macaroon looks delish! I’ve yet to try one but it is on my list 🙂 Great post!

  23. JodiWhisenhunt says:

    Ok, now my mouth is watering! I have never eaten at the Kringla Bakeri. What else is good there?

  24. HeidiPortzlineStrawser says:

    I know you said the Veggie Torte doesn’t photograph well, but I think it looks really good.  In fact, I’m tempted to try that on our next trip.  That “mac & cheese” tempts me too.

    My husband loves to get guacamole and chips in Mexico. I don’t think there has ever been a trip where he doesn’t get that. I have to go to the French bakery place to get a crepe and chocolate croissant. Oh and my husband loves to get the counter service sushi in Japan
