El Artista Hambriento Menu, Prices, & Review (2024 Festival of the Arts)

El Artista Hambriento Menu, Prices, & Review (2024 Festival of the Arts)

Mexico is a consistent contender for top-tier food booths at Epcot’s festivals. And El Artista Hambriento food studio does not disappoint – at least not when it comes to the food!

For 2024, we really loved both of the food items here. The popular Carne Asada is a return favorite, and the new kid on the block, the tostada with chilled lobster and chipotle aioli, is delicious, too. And, the prices for those items are decent as well.

Our group was split on the flavor of the margaritas. A couple of us really liked the mezcal Banana Bliss, but we thought the price of both margarita options was a little high, considering you can pay almost that much for much larger margaritas at La Cava or the outdoor margarita stand in Mexico.

Plus, our other frustration with the Mexico booth is that they never name their beers. It is always just a generic “Mexican Craft Beer”. What if we really LOVED it?! We’d have no way of knowing what we just drank. We’d love to see Mexico (and Italy!) provide the actual names of their drinks.

Overview

  • Location: In the Mexico pavilion
  • Nearby booths: The Craftsman’s Courtyard, Figment’s Inspiration Station

When it comes to our reviews and ratings, we thought it would be helpful if you had a better understanding of our personal preferences (what we like and don’t like), along with if there are any dietary restrictions.

Here’s a breakdown of not only who is doing the reviews, but a little more information about what each of us likes and doesn’t like food and drink-wise.

  • Dislikes: Beers that taste “stinky,” anything too salty
  • Dietary Restrictions: None

Heather (Editor)

  • Likes: Strong flavors, anything made out of potatoes, white wines, all beers (especially stouts and wheat beers), doesn’t mind sweet (plain fruit is NOT a dessert. Ever.)

  • Price: $10.50
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 5.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Love the combo of flavors. Would definitely get both savory items at this booth for a meal.
Heather: The carne asada is so tender and juicy and the flavors here just kick booty. Delicious…and a decent sized portion. Could it be bigger? Yes. But it’s fine.
Felicia: I absolutely loved every element of this. The steak was cooked medium rare and tender, the grilled cheese is salty, and the nopales are tender. Love love love.

Tostada de Langosta

Chilled Lobster with chipotle aïoli, onions and mango on a fried corn tortilla with guacamole, shredded cabbage and hot sauce.

  • Price: $8.00
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 4.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light, crispy tostada with delicious aioli and great lobster flavors. Great size.
Felicia: The lobster has a slight fishy flavor to it, but the chipotle aioli isn’t too creamy and the toppings compliment everything well. Solid dish that is light, cool, and refreshing.

Mexican Craft Beer

A traditional Mexican craft beer.

  • Price: $6.00 (6 oz.) / $11.00 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: No brand specified so could change during the festival. Light but fairly bland. Other options are a better deal.
Heather: I have to give this one a 3 because. IT HAS NO NAME. Mexico – you and Italy need to reveal your breweries/wineries!
Felicia: Just a beer. They don’t even tell you what type it is. Fine lager if you just want something light and easy, but more expensive than most beers at the festival.

Rubí Delicioso Margarita

Tromba Blanco Tequila, Lejay Blackcurrant Liqueur, citrus, mint, spicy agave, and beet juice.

  • Price: $16.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Tastes like bandaids. Blah.
Heather: This cocktail is not for me. Maybe it’s for you – especially if you like beets and spicy agave. Blech. Super pretty color, though. YAY FOR THAT?!
Felicia: Didn’t realize this had beet juice in it but immediately tasted like dirt when I took a drink. Didn’t understand why until I saw the ingredients. I don’t like beets so I don’t like this, but there is a nice light spice to it.

Smokey Banana Bliss Margarita

Ten to One Rum, Ilegal Mezcal Joven, banana purée, and lime juice.

  • Price: $15.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Good portion, bad taste.
Heather: Am I a margarita person now?! Is this how you margarita? Because this is delicious. I much prefer mezcal over tequila and that smokey flavor is perfect in this drink.
Felicia: Don’t really care for this either. Only barely taste the mezcal, there are hints of artificial banana, but overall just meh. Interesting twist on a margarita that isn’t terrible, but not worth the price.
