I attended Pigs & Pints at Morimoto Asia this past weekend and it was… an event.
The event was put together by Disney and featured gastronomic dishes created by the chefs at Morimoto and The Polite Pig, two restaurants you can find at Disney Springs. The dishes created were a mix between Asian and American South cuisine. It was all pretty interesting, and I only ate three of the offerings because I am super picky. One of the dishes had Sea Urchin in it, no thanks.
The pints part of this event was my favorite part (obviously). Cask & Larder, Coppertail, Crooked Can Brewing Co., Red Cypress and Red Light Red Light were all in attendance. What is nice about these breweries is that they are all local to Florida.
I don’t really have a lot to say about this event because I didn’t really enjoy it all that much to be honest. It seemed like it was over sold, and they were not prepared to have the whole thing inside. For reference if you have been inside of Morimoto Asia, the event took place on the second floor. It’s not that big of an area. Everything looked really nice, like it was presented well. But there were lines sooo long for some of the items that it was hard to walk around. There were also not a lot of areas to place your food down so you could eat it nicely.
I know this isn’t a Picky Eater Review, but I wouldn’t recommend this to some one who is a picky eater like myself.
Take a look at some of the offerings:
The event was $55 per adult and $25 per kid, I definitely would NOT bring a kid to this event unless they really like pork and seafood. I don’t think it was worth the money. Hopefully next year they will have it at a bigger location… and maybe some less crazy food options.
