La Isla Fresca is a new booth this year to the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival. They have one item on their menu that is marked gluten free:
Jerk-spice grouper or chicken with mango salsa, chayote and green papaya slaw with lime-cilantro vinaigrette – Gluten Free, Dairy Free (confirmed dairy free by Sarah on March 2, 2016)
I was excited about this dish, as I love spicy food, and I love fish. I also liked that they offered the option of chicken or grouper. I chose the grouper and was glad that I did.
I will say that the fish was a bit overcooked but overall really delicious. I loved the mango salsa and even really enjoyed the slaw. I found it to be light and refreshing! A great choice. It also wasn’t overly spicy, so if you think it might be too spicy, you might be surprised to find it a bit mild.
This is definitely a dish I will get again at the festival!
