Spice Road Table – Spicy Garlic Shrimp v2

This experience took place on March 13, 2014

We kept a sip or two of the Bodegas Zerran from our earlier sampling of the Mixed Grill. Abdou (Food & Beverage Manager for the Morocco Pavilion) had stopped by and talked to us some about the various wines they’re offering at Spice Road Table… I ordered a glass of the Marques de Caceres Roja and Nick ordered an Aris Lager (Greece)… we compared our list top three choices food-wise and found that we both had the Spicy Garlic Shrimp on our lists… So, that’s what we decided to eat.

Nick didn’t like this as much as the Mythos without food, but it may be better with food

This was clearly a lager in flavor and texture. However, the smell was a bit “chemical”…

The color of the Marques de Caceres Roja was a much deeper color than the Bodegas Zerran. The nose was “jammy”. Nick thought that it was a bit drier than the Zerran, but more cabernet in flavor. We discovered that I preferred the Caceres Roja alone and with food while Nick preferred the Zerran without food and the Caceres Roja with the shrimp.

Shrimp cooked perfectly (an unusual finding at nearly any dining establishment, not just at Disney World), quite tender with a bit of a snap when you bit into them

Nick said that he thought that the shrimp might be his favorite so far, the oil seems to be infused with lemon

I really liked these, we need to compare them to the mussels again… the sauce on these is like a luscious pot likker – I think we could have literally licked the plate clean

instead, we settled for scrubbing it clean with bits of bread – we didn’t leave anything in the clay dish…

The Marques de Caceres Roja was an excellent pairing with the shrimp – we’ve said it before an we’re sure to say it again, trust the pairings at Spice Road Table
