2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – Ireland Marketplace – Lobster and Seafood Fisherman’s Pie & Guiness® Draught

We were bound and determined to have the Fisherman’s Pie from the Ireland Marketplace this year… we were just waiting and hoping for a cooler evening to have it (you know, somehow fisherman’s pie doesn’t sound appetizing in the blazing Florida heat)…

We’ve had this numerous times over the last 12 years, sometimes we’ve been very impressed and sometimes we’ve been slightly disappointed…

This time, you could color us very disappointed…

There was a strong note of black pepper, the broth seemed to have some tomato product in it (what?!), and the potatoes were just bland (they didn’t even taste like potatoes).

The dish was too sweet, we found 3 minuscule shrimp and one equally small, very tough piece of over-cooked lobster.

This dish has definitely been changed over the years – and we can’t say that it’s been for the better (of course, maybe we just have strange tastebuds).

I’m not even sure that we want to give this another shot next year… I’m confident that we won’t be trying it again in 2013.

On a brighter note, the Guinness was the best beer we had on this visit to Epcot… Sort of pitiful that ubiquitous Guinness was the best thing that evening.
