Tangierine Cafe at Epcot

Epcot's Morocco
I ended my day at Epcot with a visit to the Morocco Pavilion to get some dinner. There's the Restaurant Marrakesh at the back of the pavilion that I have yet to try, but not for this meal.

I got my food from the Tangierine Cafe. It's a fast food restaurant serving Moroccan food.

I ordered a Falafel Wrap, served with lentils and couscous. There it is being prepared behind the counter:

The couscous had some raisins mixed in and was nice and sweet. The lentils were a bit tart and were really tasty. I sat down to eat on the restaurant's patio just as the Illuminations fireworks show was starting. It was a pretty good view of Epcot exploding into a giant fireball...

Once I finished the lentils and couscous which both required forks, I ditched the plate and tray and walked closer to the lake with my falafel. Street vendors in major cities sell falafel for a reason. It's easy to eat on the go. The wrap was filled with the deep fried chickpea balls, lettuce, tomato, onions, and tzatziki.

As far as theme parks go, Epcot is pretty awesome when it comes to food. What other amusement park is there where you can have good Chinese noodle soup for lunch, get free soda, and then end the day by eating falafel while simultaneously watching fireworks?
Big Bang! Evolution! Evil!!!  Worse than the Universe of Energy that combines a Bill Nye, lesbians, evolution, and Exxon oil conspiracies.  Awesomeness to me, evil to the religious people...
