The Noodle Exchange Menu & Review (Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

The Noodle Exchange booth was brand new for the 2021 Food & Wine Festival — and it’s returned in 2022!

Here you’ll find dishes and beverages inspired by flavors of the Far East.

There are a range of noodle dishes served. These might not sound appetizing on a summer day, but they are much lighter compared to some soups.

Plus, you get a good bang for your buck.

We’re so glad that the Green Tea Pale Ale is back this year, because it once again turned out to be one of our favorites of the entire festival.

As for noodles, we recommend the Char Siu Pork Udon. We would even order the Green Tea Pale Ale with the pork noodle bowl as a whole meal anytime.

Here’s everything you need to know about The Noodle Exchange booth, including reviews, photos, and our must-trys.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Other than the spicy kick, not much flavor.
Heather: Spiiiiiiicy! Good flavor, just a lot of kick. Noodles are tricky on a hot day, though.
Felicia: Another great pho option. Savory broth and delicious beef.

Char Siu Pork Udon

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Standout option at this booth with flavors much more in depth than others. Good portion. Nice combo of textures and flavors.
Heather: YUM! I really love this one. Huge portion. Tasty – but not over the top spicy.
Felicia: I would love to get this pho at a restaurant in the air conditioning. Great flavor.

  • Rating: 3.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Generous portion and good flavors, but not as good as other options.
Felicia: This has a nice amount of heat to the spice and I love it. This is great.

  • Price: $5.50
  • Special Diets: Gluten-friendly, plant-based
  • Rating: 1.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Good to have this vegetarian option, but overall really bland.
Heather: All the others are LOADED with flavors. This one has zip. It’s like they forgot to open up the spice cabinet. Why? The broth doesn’t even have flavor…how?
Felicia: This was bland and just had heat to the broth. Not for me.
Allyson: This is a nice vegetation option, but it’s a lot for a hot day. It has some spice, but bland. I’d rather spend my money at Earth Eats.

  • Price: $5.00 (6 oz.) / $9.00 (12 oz.)

Our Thoughts

Shannon: A festival fave. Light. Delicious. Would order the larger size every time.
Heather: It’s the perfect balance of a beer flavor with the light refreshing hint of green tea.
Felicia: I loved this. It has a subtle green tea flavor that is refreshing and delicious. Love this beer.

  • Price: $5.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Bland, but light. Nothing special.
Heather: It’s great post-spicy noodles. But, on it’s own, it’s basic.
Felicia: If you like alcoholic sugary grape juice, this wine is for you.
Allyson: Much too sweet for me.
