Foodie Friday: San Angel Inn

On our most recent trip Walt Disney World Resort, we wanted to try the San Angel Inn. This is a Mexican style, table service restaurant located in the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot. This establishment serves lunch and dinner and accepts the Disney Dining Plan. As you walk in, you venture through a Mayan villate. You are seated under the stars and can see an angry volcano in the distance. San Angel Inn is dimly lit, which provides a more intimate setting. Tables are adorned in beautiful cobalt blue dishes.
Everyone is served water to start as you wait for your drink orders to arrive. We were there for dinner. The waiter brought complimentary chips and salsa to hold us over while we waited for our food. The kids menu was typical of most Disney restaurants. Erin had the Quesadilla de Pollo- this is a grilled flour tortilla with chicken and cheese served with Mexican rice. She loved it and said it was the best quesadilla that she ever had. Zachary loves shrimp, so I had no doubt in my mind what he was going to order. He had the Camarones a la Diabla. This is roasted diabla style shrimp with Pablano rice served over a yucca puree and cascabel chili sauce. He really had no idea what the sauce was, but he ate it and loved it. I couldn't believe how much of the "green" rice he ate also! Paul, Clay and I all had the Carne Asadadala Taupiquena.
This is really only a grilled beef tenderloin with cheese enchilada sauce, black refried beans, Mexican rice, guacamole, and topped with onions and red bell peppers. We all agreed that this was the best steak we had eaten at a Disney restaurant. It was cooked correctly and seasoned well. The sides, minus the guacamole that I don't eat, were tasty too. Dessert was great, as well. We all chose something different from the menu and passed it around. Erin got the churros, that was my favorite and she didn't want to share. We also had vanilla flan with berries, helado de dulce de leche- caramel ice cream and Crema Bavera- a creamy Bavarian mousse with mixed berries and cinnamon.
With top notch service and great food, San Angel Inn is high on my recommendation list.
