Spice Road Table opened in World Showcase at Epcot in January of 2014. My son, Aaron and I finally had a chance to join some friends for lunch in April! The restaurant offers “tapas” style dining on the shore of World Showcase Lagoon.
About Spice Road Table
Inspired by the outdoor cafes along the Mediterranean, the whitewashed façade of Spice Road Table is accented in icy shades of blue from the famous “Blue City” of Chefchaouen in Morocco’s Rif Mountains. A collection of shops in the colorful style of a Moroccan “souk,” or marketplace, stretches along the front of the building – a henna tattoo artist will create temporary body art from traditional and modern designs.
With 120 outdoor terrace seats, the inside seats 60 with cozy booths, Moroccan light fixtures, tilework, tapestries and art representing Morocco’s indigenous Berber tribes. Spice Road Table is the third eatery in the Morocco pavilion, joining The Tangierine Café, which features a variety of Moroccan sandwiches and specialty pastries, and Restaurant Marrakesh, where savory dishes, Moroccan music and belly dancers showcase the authentic charm of the North African country.
Our Visit to Spice Road Table
There were 5 of us for lunch at Spice Road Table. The restaurant currently does not accept ADRs nor does it offer any passholder discounts but they hope to in the future. We were seated at a lovely table on the terrace and received great service throughout our meal. I was not familiar with most of the foods on the menu so I knew this meal was going to be an adventure!
Aaron and I each ordered the Tingis Sampler while others ordered the Mogador Sampler, Spicy Garlic Shrimp and Hummus and Imported Olives.
We both LOVED the Harissa Chicken Roll it was delicious and spicy. I enjoyed the Moroccan Lamb Sausage but Aaron wasn’t a fan. Aaron loved his lamb slider and mine was rather blah. Aaron ate the 2nd half of mine and he said it was no where near as good as his, so there is a consistency issue in the kitchen. Everyone else enjoyed their selections. When dessert time came Aaron and I splurged and shared a chocolate pyramid and the others ordered the Saffron and Lemon Custard. Both desserts were delicious.
