The Australia marketplace booth at the 2016 Epcot Food & Wine Festival is a favorite having been at the festival for many years. With several gluten free options, it’s a spot that I usually stop at least once during the Food & Wine Festival. This year, there are two dishes listed as gluten free.
Because this booth is NOT 100% gluten free, there is always an increased risk of cross-contamination. Use your own judgement when consuming items that are not in dedicated gluten free booths (this year only Brazil and the Greenhouse Guru have entirely gluten free food items).
I ended up ordering the Grilled Sweet and Spicy Bush Berry Shrimp with Pineapple, Pepper, Onion, and Snap Peas. I got this last year, and really enjoyed it. It’s a gluten free and dairy free dish with lots of flavor and a bit of spice.
I love the sweet and spiciness of it. If you’re not a big spice fan, you may want to avoid this or make sure you have lots of water on hand. While it wasn’t super spicy, I did need to get a drink of water afterwards.
Overall, I love this dish and really like the Australia booth. It’s an easy go-to and one I’ll definitely be visiting again this year.
