Trowel & Trellis Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

This is the booth for vegetarians and vegans. The Trowel & Trellis outdoor kitchen serves strictly plant-based items.

The booth is hosted by Impossible and has both savory and sweet items, along with a few beverages.

Even those who aren’t vegans or vegetarians should try both the food and drink choices. Once again, this booth is a hit!

You can’t go wrong with any of the offerings. Better yet, you could make a meal here by choosing one savory dish, the dessert, and a beverage.

Plus, this booth offers fresh and lighter offerings, which is nice for a theme park and on a hot day.

Location: Near Port of Entry
Nearby booths: The Honey Bee-stro, Refreshment Port, Northern Bloom

Not to miss: Overall, everything is great here. It’s a solid booth, with the standout being the Boneless Imossible Korean Short Rib.

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.)

Photos & Review

  • Price: $6.75
  • Special Diets: Plant-Based
  • Rating: 4.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Great mix of ingredients, colorful presentation, really fantastic flavors, Kimchee mayo a particular standout
Heather: Stuff like this would make it very easy to be vegetarian. Very tasty.
Felicia: Very good flavor and decent sized portion. Tasted like a Korean short rib, but the texture is more like meatloaf (which makes sense based on it being Impossible meat). Solid option.
Allyson: A decent size portion and makes a good meal. This continues to be one of my favorite dishes at the festival.

Impossible Lumpia

Impossible lumpia with a Thai sweet chili sauce. This is a new festival item for 2023. This dish is also part of the Garden Graze, the food crawl where you can earn a prize.

  • Price: $5.50
  • Special Diets: Plant-Based
  • Rating: 4.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Not my favorite of the Impossible options I’ve had at the festivals, but not too bad. Slight kick. Decent portion.
Heather: Such a great flavor and huge portion. Little spicy but not too bad. Eat it when it is FRESH because the wrapper can get a little chewy.
Felicia: Love this a lot. The impossible filling is tasty and not obviously plant based. Love sweet chili sauce. Very crispy and good.
Allyson: Love this new option this year. Did want them to be a bit crispier, but still very good and not too much heat.

Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake with black currant ganache, mixed berry compote, and chocolate ice cream. This dish is also part of the Garden Graze, the food crawl where you can earn a prize.

  • Price: $5.00
  • Special Diets: Plant-Based
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Pretty presentation, love the raspberry flavors in multiple forms.
Heather: I really like how light this cake is. And, it’s a decent size.
Felicia: This was tasty. The cake was moist and the raspberry flavor wasn’t overwhelming. The gelato melts quickly, though.
Allyson: This has good flavor but not too rich or chocolatey, which I prefer. It’s a nice and light dessert.

Twinings Iced Green Tea

Twinings of London Iced Green Tea with cranberry & lime. This is non-alcoholic.

  • Price: $4.50
  • Made with alcohol? No
  • Rating: 3.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light but lacking much flavor
Heather: Large portion and not too watery.
Felicia: I wouldn’t order this, but if I wanted a specialty non-alcoholic drink, this would be a great option. Light with a mellow cranberry flavor.
Allyson: This is super refreshing and not an overpowering green tea taste. Makes a good drink on a hot day. Good option if you want a non-alcoholic drink.

Parish Brewing Co. Bloom Hazy IPA

Parish Brewing Co. produces this Bloom Hazy IPA in Broussard, Louisiana.

  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Portion too small for price, fairly plain and basic flavor.
Heather: Delicious and light and fresh. Fantastic complement to the spicy flavors in this booth.
Felicia: Strong hoppy flavor and nothing really noteworthy otherwise. It’s a fine IPA, but nothing special.
Allyson: As a hazy IPA fan, LOVE this! I would go back and get the bigger size!

J. Lohr Wildflower Valdiguie

A light bodied red wine with notes of pomegranate, raspberry, and cranberry.

j. lohr wildflower valdiguie - trowel and trellis - epcot flower and garden
  • Price: $6.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light red wine, small portion
Heather: A decent red. It goes nicely with the ribs, I think.
Felicia: A solid red wine that isn’t bitter and is served chilled. Refreshing in the heat. It also isn’t too sweet. Liked this but just like the other wines at the festival, it’s a small serving.
Allyson: I don’t like wine and I don’t like this.

Twinings Iced Green Tea with Vodka

Twinings of London Iced Green Tea with cranberry, lime, and Hanger 1 Makrut Lime Vodka served in a Mason Jar.

twinings iced green tea with vodka - trowel and trellis - epcot flower and garden
  • Price: $11.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Large portion in souvenir mason jar cup, very light and flavorful.
Heather: If you want a drink that is light and doesn’t make you feel like you are “drinking”, this is it. Not a cocktail; just a spiked tea.
Felicia: It’s fine. The flavor is muted since it’s a tea. The vodka isn’t overpowering. Overall, a very meh drink.
Allyson: It’s just an ok cocktail and tastes a little watered down. But good value and you get a souvenir cup if you want.
