Epcot for Foodie Cardiologists

Several Cardiology Fellows who are attending AHA.11 this week are blogging together on CardioExchange.  The Fellows include Revathi Balakrishnan, Eiman Jahangir, John Ryan (moderator), and Amit Shah. Read the previous post here and the next one here. Check back often to learn about the biggest buzz in Orlando.

After arriving in Orlando, registering at the center, and settling into my hotel, the hunger pangs started to set in. Being from New York City, I didn’t know what food to expect from Orlando, let alone Disney World (my fondest memories of Disney food consist of astronaut ice cream and goofy ice cream pops with bubble-gum noses). John’s post about restaurants in the area should allay any of my hunger pains.

Yesterday, several of my co-fellows convinced me to join them at Epcot Center’s international food and wine festival, and I’m glad I did.  We “travelled ‘round the globe” eating our way through stalls set up in “countries” around the beautifully picturesque Epcot Lake. Some tasty examples: New England lobster rolls, escargot en brioche, and spicy pork with kimchi slaw. Today is the last day; AHA attendees who hurry can get discount tickets at the convention center!
