Refreshment Outpost Menu & Review (Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

The Refreshment Outpost isn’t your typical Food & Wine booth.

This is actually a permanent Quick Service spot that you can find in the Africa outpost area between the China and Germany pavilions.

But, just like at every other Epcot festival, during Food & Wine there are exclusive festival menu items sold here in addition to the daily menu which includes things like soft-serve ice cream, frozen drinks, and a range of beers.

This year, the festival items include a plant-based Spicy Githeri with white beans, pigeon peas, quinoa and ancient grains medley, and kachumbari slaw.

Plus, there are 3 full size beers for $10.75 that you can purchase.

You definitely get your bang for your buck with the beers and the Spicy Githeri, with the latter making a great plant-based offering.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Decent portion, fantastic combo of flavors, great plant-based option.
Heather: I’m gonna call this one a sleeper…lots of flavor, great texture and a huge portion. Win. Win. Win.
Felicia: I don’t love this. It has a nice spice to it but not a flavor I appreciate. It’s also dry and just not for me overall.
Allyson: As a vegetarian, this is fantastic. The flavors are phenomenal and a very good portion.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Generous size but kinda bitter taste. Wouldn’t get it again.

Felicia: Love this. Super tart lime flavor and cold refreshing beer. Doesn’t taste much like a Kolsch but is fabulous.
