San Angel Inn Restaurant is one of the most beautiful and atmospheric of all Epcot's restaurants. Set inside the pyramid at the Mexico Pavilion, this table service restaurant offers "outdoor" dining - inside. Tables overlook scenes from 'The Gran Fiesta Tour" boat ride.
Unlike most Mexican restaurants in the United States, you’ll not find nachos at San Angel Inn in Epcot, because, says manager Richard Debler, they are not authentic Mexican dishes. And Debler was trained in his family’s restaurant in Mexico City.
Chocolate may sound like an unorthodox ingredient to use with chicken, but the mole poblano prepared according to a San Angel Inn recipe combines chile ancho, chile passilla, green tomatoes, ground tortillas, coriander seed and 11 other spices with cocoa for a rich sauce in which chicken is simmered until tender. Fresh tortillas are made every day and filled with duck marinated with tamarind sauce and topped with avocado, pineapple and chives.
San Angel Inn is open for both lunch and dinner.
