Hanami Menu & Review (2024 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

Hanami Menu & Review (2024 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

The Hanami outdoor kitchen can be found in the Japan pavilion.

It offers a range of Japanese-inspired dishes and cocktails. Yes, this includes sake. This year, there’s even a Ozeki Pineapple Nigori Sake.

Every year, one of the most popular items at this booth is the “Frushi,” which is strawberry, pineapple, and lychee wrapped in sweet rice and pink soy wrap served with whipped cream, drizzled raspberry sauce, and toasted coconut.

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.

Shannon (Founder)

  • Likes: Almost everything
  • 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.)
