Foodie Out Loud finds the experience similar to Epcot. When Megan and Donna visited, they started with the Dulce de Leche doughnut from Dough Doughnuts, and then ventured to Luke's Lobster for their famous Lobster Roll. "This was to die for!" Luke's loads their buttery toasted roll with plenty of lobster meat. It's a must!
Another interesting first bite was from Kuro Obi also known as Ippudo NY. The Foodie Out Loud team had their signature Karaka Men, this "Tori Paitan' "soup is a blend of chicken and pork served with straight noodles, kikurage mushrooms, pork belly topped with Karaka, a medium spiced miso paste. Megan is no ramen expert, but LOVED this dish. "What a unique blend of flavor a to make a comforting, yet adventurous soup!"
City Kitchen also has sushi, and Mediterranean covered. Azuki has excellent sushi and those with a Mediterranean taste will love Ilili Box!
