*NEW* Crispy Paneer with Mango-Curry Ketchup – $5.00

It’s Indian cottage cheese which isn’t bad without the sauce. It has a really unique flavor, a mix between cottage cheese and ricotta. The sauce is extremely powerful, tasting like ketchup and mango. We recommend lightening the sauce when dipping. Otherwise, it may be too heavy.

*NEW* Potato and Pea Samosa with Cilantro Lime Cream – $5.25

The portion is great, the flavor is present, and it’s at a fair price! It has an excellent spice profile that we would expect from India. It’s a bit mushy but that was expected. The crust isn’t as crispy as we would like, but we enjoyed it and would get it again.

*NEW* Chicken Tikka Masala with Spicy Fennel Yogurt and Naan Bread – $6.00

Absolutely delicious. Large portion size and the perfect chicken tiki masala. The flavor is exactly what you would expect. The bread is nicely toasted and you get the perfect crunch. The spices aren’t overwhelming but we really loved that.

Taj Mahal Premium Lager (4.5% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 oz, $9.00 for 12 oz.

Drizly describes Taj Mahal Premium Lager as “a clean, crisp, pleasant beer” with “a light, delicate flavor”.

*NEW* Sula Brut Tropical Sparkling Wine, Nashik ($21/bottle) – $7.00

Sula Vineyards describes it as “The happiest sparkling wine! Brut Tropicale is an elegant sparkling rosé wine, full of tropical notes like its charming passion fruit aromas. It has “aromas of peach and passion fruit
with hints of guava on the finish.

Sula Chenin Blanc, Nashik ($12/bottle) – $5.00

Sula Vineyards describes its Chenin Blanc as “a refreshing, easy-drinking white wine with a little residual sugar, which gives it a slight sweetness, cleverly balanced by its delicious acidity”, as well as flavors of “ripe tropical fruit and hints of honey.”

Mango Lassi (non-alcoholic) – $5.00

This version has more mango flavor for sure out of the two. It’s a better flavor but we prefer the liquor. Both drinks are the same, only one contains alcohol. It almost tastes like eggnog with a hint of chai.

Mango Lassi with Sōmrus Chai Cream Liqueur ($27/750ml bottle) – $11.00

It’s basically a chai cream in a glass. The flavor is good, but it’s way too hot for that. Alcohol is there but barely.

Location of India Marketplace at EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival

The location of the Indian market is quite precise geographically, near the Chinese pavilion along the World Showcase promenade. You can find it at number 12 on the map below.

With so many new menu items, it takes a few trips to the festival to eat everything available here. Luckily for you, the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival runs from July 14 to November 19, 2022.
