If you are looking to pick up some Mediterranean moves, make sure you catch MO’ROCKIN – the six-piece musical act performing six times daily near the entrance to the pavilion. This talented troupe presents “Arabic fusion rock” through various drums and stringed instruments, along with belly dancing accompaniment. Performances are pre-scheduled, and last approximately 20 minutes.
Didn’t I mention something about spices earlier? Well, they’re for more than just smelling, and after your tour of the area, you’ll probably be considering moving on to tasting too! Lucky for you, there are three palate pleasing dining and drinking spots in the Morocco Pavilion!
Spice Road Table – Themed around a traditional Mediterranean coastal outdoor cafe, Spice Road Table offers a limited menu of light meals and snacks (primarily seafood). Most meals are $10 or less. The focus of the Spice Road Table menu is on beverages, with a diverse selection of specialty drinks, wines and regional beers. This location participates in Epcot’s After Hours Wind Down. Lunch and dinner menus available here.
Tangierine Cafe – Near the entrance to Morocco, Tangierine Cafe provides quick service light meal options with a distinct kick. The menu consists primarily of wraps, sandwiches and skewers featuring combinations of lamb, chicken, hummus, falafel and vegetable varieties. Picky children will be glad to find hamburgers and chicken nuggets on the kids’ menu. Plan on $10-$15 for the average entree. Lunch and dinner menus available here.
Restaurant Marrakesh – Dine as a special guest in the Sultan’s Palace, with belly dancers for entertainment. Dimly lit and intricately themed, Restaurant Marrakesh offers the best of Morocco’s culinary treasures, including a wide array of appetizers, entrees of beef, chicken, lamb, and salmon – featuring Couscous, of course! The Taste of Morocco Feast is a fantastic menu option offering appetizer, multiple entree samplings, side and dessert selections for one set price. Plan on $15-30 per person. Lunch and dinner menus available here.
