Disney dining in EPCOT’s World Showcase is a fun and delicious cultural experience. If you are drafting your vacation Disney dining plan, consider this suggestion when you narrow down your dining reservations. A traditional Japanese Steakhouse’s food quality and entertainment is a great lunch or dinner option for EPCOT Guests. Somewhere between the flavorful stir-fried veggies, juicy steak, and unique sake, you’ll realize that Teppan Edo is one of the best restaurants at this theme Park. Be sure to add dinner and a show to your Disney to-do list: dining at Teppan Edo.
If you have enjoyed a morning exploring the future world with Figment and are wandering around World Showcase Lagoon, you are probably getting hungry. Sure, there are plenty of quick service dining options around World Showcase. In fact, choosing which snacks, sweets, and cocktails I want to sample during my EPCOT Park day is consistently among the most challenging choices.

Still, even with the plethora of quick service dining options available, I suggest you secure an advance dining reservation for a table service restaurant. Head to the Japan pavilion for a dining experience you will not forget.
Sure, character dining is a popular Disney dining option for those looking to enjoy a table service restaurant. Still, there are plenty of interactive and fun Disney World restaurants for your Disney experience that are not character meals. Chefs de France, La Hacienda de San Angel, and Teppan Edo are all examples of table service restaurants with fun theming to match the phenomenal cuisine.

The Teppan Edo menu offers the flair and quality you expect from a Japanese Steakhouse, with excellent sushi options and perfect beverage pairings. You can visit this EPCOT World Showcase restaurant for lunch or dinner and expect to pay around $60 per adult for your meal from this al carte menu.
Begin your meal with a steaming miso soup, tempura, or crunchy edamame. Pair your meal with a selection from the Japanese beer, sake, whiskey, liquor, or cocktail menu. If you want to try a signature cocktail with your meal, I suggest the Tokyo Sunset or the Nigori Mimosa. The Tokuo Sunset is made with coconut rum, crème de banana, peach schnapps, and pineapple juice, making for the perfect fruity and flavorful drink without being overly sweet.
The Nigori Mimisa is another excellent choice with unfiltered nigori sake, orange juice, grenadine, and sparkling water. It is no secret that one of my favorite Disney World Resort cocktails is on the menu at Teppan Edo. However, I suggest you skip the Violet Sake with your meal and purchase it before or after your meal at the Garden House stand in the Japan pavilion. There are so many incredible drinks and so little time to try them, so skip the Violet Sake at Teppan Edo and use that opportunity to try a different drink.

Sushi lovers will melt over the incredible options on this menu. Aside from downright mouthwatering rolls, the quality of the sushi is truly showstopping and served at the peak of freshness. My favorite choices from this menu are the Spicy Roll and Volcano Roll. The Spicy Roll consists of tuna-salmon mixed with cucumber, seaweed wrap and volcano sauce, while the Volcano Roll is a grilled California Roll topped with shrimp, scallops, tempura, and volcano sauce.
If you want a classic, go for the original California Roll made with crab, cucumber, masago cheese, and avocado. Each of these rolls comes with eight pieces of sushi, but you could opt for a sampler to taste two of the spicy roll, two of a California roll, and three pieces of nigiri sushi. The sampler rings in at $15, with other rolls on the menu ranging from $14 (California Roll)-$20 (Volcano Roll).
Now it’s time for the main event! When it’s time to fire up the hibachi grill Guests, have options for what take on the hibachi entree they would like to try. All adult entrees have garden salad, udon noodles, vegetables, and steamed white rice served as sides. When choosing protein, options like New York Strip, filet mignon, thin julienne steak, salmon, shrimp, scallops, or chicken are available.
Suppose you would rather go with a more robust vegetable option; that is an option too. Entree prices range from a lower $26 for the Yasai seasonal vegetable option to $65 for the Hotate coldwater sea scallops. The New York Strip is my go-to entree at Teppan Edo. If I’m feeling like a splurge, the Asakusa shrimp and steak combination for $44 is my favorite entree option on the menu. You can browse from a menu of combination possibilities and additional offerings for your meal. Choose from the lobster tail, world-renowned Wagyu Beef, shiitake, or grilled shrimp to name just a few.

The dessert menu has a few more not to be missed options if you are looking to end this meal on a sweet note. The Green Tea ice cream, Mango Mousse Cake, and Matcha Tiramisu are exciting and flavorful combinations you won’t find on many menus.
Teppan Edo is one of the best restaurants in the World Showcase for superb food quality and a great experience. Will you book a reservation at Teppan Edo on your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation?
