Seven Seas Food Festival Best Eats and TreatsFebruary 28, 2023
1. Crispy Brussels Sprouts
This delectable offering is my favorite at this year’s festival. What may seem like an underdog, this dish will be sure to delight. Lightly Crisped sprouts, roasted in an applewood bacon vinaigrette, and tapped with slivered almonds. You can find this one at booth 6, the All-American Market near Voyager’s Smokehouse. Uncle Sam would be proud of this dish, indeed.
2. Italian Cannoli
At the most heartwarming market this year, you’ll find an incredible dessert. This cannolo is just what you want- infused with mascarpone vanilla cream, topped with a cherry and pistachio crumb on each end. You’ll think you’re in the heart of Italy as you’re indulging this on the shores of SeaWorld’s large central lake. Find this one at booth 11, Italian Market at Lakeside Patio.
3. Bay Scallop
Don’t be underestimated by the simplicity. The bay scallop may be the cover dish of the event- it really speaks to the powerful flavors of the sea. This scallop is served with tricolor couscous, and red quinoa. That’s it! See for yourself how incredibly delicious this simple dish is at booth 14, the Mediterranean Market in front of Nautilus Theater.
4. Guinness Beef Stew
Calling all comfort food lovers! This bee stew is traditional, yet tender. The beef is combined with sweet potatoes and roasted root vegetables, which bring an incredible flavor to this dish. Cozy up with this bowl of stew before heading to nearby Orca Encounter - you’ll be glad you did! Irish Market is booth 18, located after Infinity Falls on the way to Orca Encounter.
5. Mexican Street Corn
Last but certainly not least, over at the Mexican market, take a flight into signature Mexican cuisine with this street corn. This corn is not what you think. This corn is grilled, topped with quiso fresco and cilantro avocado crema, and garnished with tajin seasoning. All this brings some incredible flavors to this simple vegetable. You’ll never eat corn on the cob again after trying this! Mexican market is booth 23, located next to the Beer Garden.
The Seven Seas Food Festival is SeaWorld’s Premier food event, and one of the best in Orlando. After trying these 5 offerings, be sure to try the rest! You won’t forget it.
