China Booth Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

China Booth Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Never did we think we’d see the day where we’d recommend drinks from the China booth.

That’s right, there are drinks that we actually like this year from what we consider an overrated (and overpriced) Food and Wine marketplace.

Typically, these cocktails taste like lighter fluid. That’s not an exaggeration. Well, maybe a little bit, but they are sometimes seriously undrinkable. But, the China booth surprised us this year and, thankfully, in a good way.

Even though there are a few beverages we recommend, keep in mind they are quite pricey. They range between $13 and $14.

In Disney prices, that’s not too bad, but keep in mind that you might want to save your money elsewhere — and at a booth that you can purchase both solid food and drink items.

But, if you’re all about splurging or you’re a fan of this marketplace, we have you covered!

Let’s chat everything you need to know about the China booth, including reviews, photos, and our must-trys.

Photos and Reviews

Crispy Duck Bao Bun

Crispy duck served on a bao bun with hoisin sauce.

China Duck Bao
  • Price: $8.25
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: I usually enjoy duck, but this is so greasy.
Felicia: Giving it a 3 because the bao bun is moist and delicious. But the duck is rather gamey. I don’t care for duck so not a good dish for me.

Pan-Fried Chicken Dumplings

A dish consisting of pan-fried chicken dumplings with house-made sweet and spicy sauce.

China Dumplings
  • Price: $5.25
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Two dumplings with strange texture. Wouldn’t order again.
Heather: Why is this so chewy?
Felicia: Just an average dumpling. It’s fine but nothing special.

Dandan Noodles

Noodles with spicy pork with Sichuan sauce, peanut butter, sesame and green onion.

China Dandan Noodles
  • Price: $8.25
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Seems and looks like it’ll be an days but and yet…completely and totally gross. Spice kick lingers for so long too.
Heather: So freaking spicy. And a weird texture…I don’t understand this dish.
Felicia: Has a nice spice to it but it’s only a little bit of pork and then a lot of plain spaghetti. Strange

Passion Fruit Bubble Tea

A non-alcoholic passion fruit flavored bubble tea.

China Passionfruit Boba
  • Price: $7.25
  • Made with alcohol? No
  • Rating: 2.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Wanted to love this boba drink but the artificial fruit flavor is just not good.
Heather: Good option if you aren’t looking to consume alcohol, just be warned that it is a sweet tea.
Felicia: Great non-alcoholic option. Passionfruit flavor is strong but not overpowering. It’s not too sweet. Really refreshing and light.
Allyson: It’s just too sweet for me. I don’t usually like the non-alcoholic boba drinks here. Also tastes a little artificial.

Fiery Dream

A cocktail made with citrus vodka, triple sec, guava nectar, and spicy hot honey syrup.

China Fiery Dream
  • Price: $13.75
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Sweet mixed drink with a tiny kick …. Like the kick is more of a tickle in the back of your throat. Wait … I hope that’s the drink making my throat tickle…….
Felicia: I actually really liked this. Definitely can taste some spice (without it being spicy… make that make sense) and it’s not too sweet. A win for China, aside from the price.
Allyson: Can I give this a negative rating? Holy alcohol. Nope. Just nope.

ByeJoe Punch

An alcoholic drink called the “ByeJoe Punch” made up of Chinese BaiJiu spirit, lychee syrup, soda water, and piña colada mix.

China ByeJoe Punch
  • Price: $13.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 1.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Super strong alcohol taste, without any expected pina colada flavors coming through.
Heather: The only thing good is that you can ALMOST smell the pina colada mix. Too bad you can’t taste it.
Felicia: This usually just tastes like rubbing alcohol but this year it doesn’t. I still don’t care for the flavor but it’s drinkable.
Allyson: While I still don’t care for this and think it’s overpriced, this tastes better compared to past years.


A cocktail consisting of Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila, Smirnoff Vodka, orange and mango

China Fireworks
  • Price: $14.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Fairly strong, fruit tastes artificial, decent portion
Heather: Last year this was like sipping a straight shot of tequila-this year, the tequila is barely detectable?! Sweet – but kinda refreshing in a Sunny D sort of way (no shade to Sunny D).
Felicia: I hated this last year. Tasted like cheap tequila. This year it’s light and refreshing. Perfect amount of sweetness. Beware though, I don’t trust this booth enough to think it will be good everyday.
Allyson: Again, overpriced. But kind of tastes like a fuzzy naval and I don’t hate it.

Brew Hub Lychee Foo

Lychee Foo is an American Pale Ale brewed with lychee by Brew Hub Brewing in Lakeland, FL.

China Lychee Foo Draft
  • Price: $5.25 (6 oz.) / $9.75 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Fantastic new beer option. Unique flavor and well balanced.
Felicia: This is a unique beer with a unique flavor so I love that. But I can’t decide if the lychee is fun or odd. On the fence about this one but try if you want something different.
Allyson: I think this is actually a delicious and refreshing beer. Solid flavor.
