Everything you need to know about La Hacienda de San Angel
Take part in a cultural fiesta at La Hacienda de San Angel. Located in the Mexico pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase, this gorgeous restaurant serves traditional Mexican cuisine with an absolutely stunning view of the World Showcase Lagoon.
From the house made tortillas and fresh salsas ranging from spicy to mild, to the warm ambiance and those delicious Margaritas. Here’s everything you need to know about La Hacienda de San Angel.
Stepping into Mexico
As you enter through an archway bearing the restaurant’s name, you’ll be greeted by La Hacienda’s inviting and charming atmosphere. Whimsical hanging paper lanterns and stars beautifully brighten up the place.
The high ceilings, expansive windows and warm colors will make you feel as though you have actually stepped into Mexico. La Hacienda also offers one of the best seats in the house when it comes to the IllumiNations fireworks display.
Must have Margaritas
Word on the street is the Margaritas are amazing. If you are over 21, indulge in the hand crafted alcoholic beverages at La Hacienda de Angel. There’s even a Tequila Ambassador on hand to offer suggestions for your drink order.
The lime and raspberry margarita made with Tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice and raspberry puree is a burst of bold citrus flavor. The mango blueberry and basil margarita is fresh and delightful, especially with a side of chips and salsa. With a wide selection of premium tequila and Mexican beer to choose from, you’ll raise a glass to any drink on their menu.
Let me talk about the chips and guacamole for a moment. They offer three different toppings for their avocado dip; mango pico de gallo, pomegranate and cheese, and corn and poblano peppers with pumpkin seeds.
Any one of these toppings is just another layer of flavor to go with their creamy guacamole and crunchy, house made tortilla chips. If you are a cheese lover, try the Queso Fundido, it’s melted cheese with chorizo, roasted poblano and serrano peppers, and an avocado-tomatillo sauce.
Share a mixed grill for 2 with a parrillada. Or with their portions, for more than 2. The parrillada with meat has steak, chicken al pastor, and chorizo while the seafood option has shrimp, fish, and scallops. Both varieties are served with grilled vegetables, beans and salsa.
Build your own tacos from the skillets of steak, chicken and more. Speaking of tacos, they have these fried shrimp tacos served over flour tortillas and topped with Chipotle-lime aioli, cabbage, lime and salsa verde that will make your mouth water.
Plenty of Room for Postres
Save room for dessert because they serve truly authentic Mexican treats. The Helado de Maiz, or Corn Ice Cream is actually a traditional dessert in Mexico. Flavored with sweet corn, the ice cream has corn kernels folded into it and is garnished with candied popcorn and a sprinkle of sour chile seasoning.
It’s a very unique bite. Another popular dessert is the Empanada de Manzana, which is a crispy puff pastry filled with caramel apples served with a scoop dulce de leche ice cream and a caramel sauce drizzle.
That’s everything you need to know about La Hacienda de San Angel in the Mexico pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase. Sit back with an ice cold margarita and a couple of tacos while you enjoy the fireworks display. Want to have a fiesta of your own at La Hacienda de San Angel?
