Grand Carnivale food tasting card

Recommended Posts

Gochujang is Korean, not Chinese. But 99% of American palettes probably can't tolerate traditional Chinese since it's extremely spicy and often numbing, at least from the Sichuan Provence. People think the numb inducing spices means something is wrong with the food. At least the one Chinese dish is dim sum. 

 

Hopefully it goes well, I'm a bit disappointed but I'm also a huge foodie so all of these dishes are hardly international sampling for me. But for the everyday person they might find it much more adventurous.

I imagine that some of the food would be “Americanized” to an extent. From what I’ve heard they are taking the food accuracy pretty seriously, so we will have to see.

You can purchase a food tasting card for Grand Carnivale to sample up to 6 items from various countries.

I notice a severe lack of wings that have a little kick to them. 

Will not be attending.

Looks like one pass is good for six items during the duration of the Carnivale. At first I thought it was only good for one day/six items. Can’t imagine eating that many items in one day... mixing all those combinations could end up creating a protein spill... :blink:

^ If the portions are similar to Frontier Festival/Beer & BBQ at Cedar Point, it will take at least a few tastings to make a full meal.

If not for dining plans, I could see myself using a tasting card in one visit.

The Frontier Festival portions at CP this year were very small snack size and if these are similar in portion size, it will take all six samples to make a normal meal.

Do you have to buy the plan in order to participate, or can you buy individual portions? Although it might be cheaper to buy the six portion deal.

I’m not certain, but I’d be surprised if you couldn’t purchase individual items.

I am still trying to figure this out:  The IR will be open.  The blog post discusses this, but the photo presented highlights the food that is part of the tasting card program.  So, is the IR having the same food in a buffet format?  Or is it completely different food?  If it is the same food, it definitely a better value because you can try all 12 selections in a buffet format vs having to buy two punch cards to try all 12.  Anybody here know the answer?

Any idea how much the food costs individually?

Portions were around 7 dollars, with the pass 5 dollars each. And they were fantastic samples!


And you get the same full sizes portions right?
