Counter service meals are good for two reasons. One: you can get a burger if you're feeling particularly unambitious. Two: there are plenty of other options for the more adventurous eater, especially at World Showcase in Epcot. World Showcase is one of the main places I intend to eat counter service meals that are out of my comfort zone. Since the meals are generally less expensive than table service, I wouldn't mind trying something new as much. If I didn't like it, I could always get a burger. One of the places I'm especially looking forward to trying is the Tangierine Cafe in the Morocco pavilion. I've never had food like that, and I'm really looking forward to trying it.
Looking for other places to get away from that burger? If you're still looking for meat, try the Flame Tree Barbecue in the Animal Kingdom. I've never eaten here, and unfortunately, it will be closed for renovation during my upcoming trip. But I've heard awesome things about the ribs and the view of Expedition Everest. Another non-burger counter service venue that gets rave reviews is Earl of Sandwich in Downtown Disney. Earl of Sandwich is one that I do hope to try in August, and the gourmet sandwiches are farrrr away from burgers. On the other hand, if you do want a burger, they can be found almost anywhere. And do you want the best burger? It is generally agreed that the two best burgers can be found at Pecos Bills in the Magic Kingdom (a personal favorite, love the toppings bar!) and Beaches and Cream at the Beach Club.
So what do you think? What are your favorite out-of-the-ordinary counter service meals? Favorite non-burgers? Favorite burgers? Let me know in a comment, a tweet (@discollegeblog), or on Facebook! And remember, if I get 25 more Twitter followers in the next 11 days, I will be giving away a prize from Walt Disney World!
