2022 EPCOT Festival of Holidays: Nochebuena Cocina Holiday Kitchen Review

Share This!

New this year, Nochebuena Cocina has one of the few plant-based offerings of the Festival. This kitchen is located in the cluster near Port of Entry.

Our recommendation: Meh. We didn’t have anything here that would bring us back – this could have been great, but it missed the mark. Hopefully it comes back with expanded options next year, but in the meantime, we say skip.

Our Thoughts

Best of the Booth

The Pernil was nice, but not close to the other things that we loved so much at other kitchens. It had flavor, but it wasn’t anything special. Still, if you’re going to get a dish here, this would be our pick.

Rest of the Booth

We wanted to love the Tamale, but it was far too spicy for us; even the cotija couldn’t cool it down enough. And the Alfajores cookie was dry and not great.

The Chai Ginger Mule was nice but we really, really love a holiday drink with full seasonal spices. If this is your thing, it might be a reason to stop at this booth.
