Spice Road Table is coming soon to Epcot, offering a variety of Moroccan small plates and specialty drinks. Regional flavors from the Mediterranean are highlighted, along with a scenic view of the World Showcase lagoon in front of the Morocco pavilion.
Perfect for IllumiNations viewing or relaxing with a selection of Moroccan flavors and cocktails along World Showcase Lagoon, the lounge is a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds, say the designers. There’s an array of small plates: zesty harissa chicken drumettes; a Mediterranean omelet with sausage, potatoes and caramelized onion; mussels with preserved lemons and tomato sauce baked in an earthenware tagine pot; Moroccan merguez sausage with a fresh tomato salad; garlicky jumbo shrimp in a spicy chile pepper sauce.
Inspired by the outdoor cafes along the Mediterranean, the whitewashed façade of Spice Road Table is accented in icy shades of blue from the famous “Blue City” of Chefchaouen in Morocco’s Rif Mountains. A collection of shops in the colorful style of a Moroccan “souk,” or marketplace, stretches along the front of the building – and a henna tattoo artist will create temporary body art from traditional and modern designs.
With 120 outdoor terrace seats, the inside will seat 60 with cozy booths, Moroccan light fixtures, tilework, tapestries and art representing Morocco’s indigenous Berber tribes.
Any news on the opening date?
Sorry for my english but there is not moroccan merguez in Morocco because it’s a algerian and tunisian speciality. In morocco, merguez is called “sausage” and it’s generaly for children. Harissa is also a speciality from Algeria and Tunisia.
This sounds delish! Can you confirm whether it’s counter service or table service? Many thanks!
@ Eric from MA: It’s right across the promenade from the main part of the Morocco pavilion. The Mo’Rockin’ stage and a small shop used to be in that spot. Mo’Rockin’ has been performing on another stage on the pavilion side of the promenade. The lagoon is behind Spice Road Table as seen in the illustration. I believe that Tangierine Café will remain after Spice Road Table opens, but I too am awaiting “official confirmation.”
Table service or counter service? It sounds like table service, but I hope it is not replacing Tangierine Cafe.
Can’t get a sense of where this will be, from the concept art–Is it taking the place of Tangerine Cafe? Or Mo’Rockin’s stage?
Where’s the Lagoon in relation to the picture?
Spice Road Table will be across the Promenade from Tangierine Cafe, on the water.
When is this set to open? Like Pamela, we’re going to be there in 18 days. Any chance it’ll be in soft opening?
I’m looking forward to this new restaurant. When can we make ADRs?
I can’t wait! It sounds delicious. Please alert us as soon as you know an opening or booking date.
We’re going to be there in 2 weeks. Will it be open then? Is this a place you need to make ADR’s for?
But how soon is “soon”??? 🙂
