And in a frozen version. My sister and husband are adamant that they prefer the frozen kind. If you have to pick one I would say go for the frozen kind. the whole menu here. instagram feed that we are donut connoisseurs. You can see their full offerings here.
I was super impressed with the portion size of the Bangers and Mash and I really liked the taste of those as well but ever since my Summer in Oxford I've had a soft spot for Banges and Mash.
5. Cowfish at Universal CityWalk
In the park isn't the only place to eat. Universal is split into two theme parks that's connected with CityWalk (a row of shops and restaurants) on the outside and the Hogwart's Express on the inside. It's just as easy to step outside the gates to grab a bite and I'm so glad we were able to try out Cowfish.
The eatery get's it's name since they serve both burgers and sushi. Super fun right? We had the Crab Rangoon Dip, Parmesan Bacon Truffle Fries, Boursin Bacon Burger, Spicy Yellow Tail Roll, the Prime Time Filet and Lobster (sushi) roll, and the High Class Hill Billy (pictured here). It was all very tasty.
But the thing I was most impressed with were the kid's meals. We almost never order kid's meals because honestly it's almost always fake dumbed down food that isn't that flavorful put there on the assumption that kids on't eat real food. That was NOT the case here. There were really good options with real food that was both healthy and fun. For Teddy we picked the Shrimp Tempura meal which came with a shrimp tempura roll and choice of sides (we could have also had apple slices or edamame) and it had the cutest rice krispie sushi. He scarfed it down!
6. Bubba Gump at Universal CityWalk
Another good option in CityWalk is Bubba Gumps. If you like fried seafood (or seafood of any kind) this is a treat. Our waiter was awesome quizzing us on Forest Gump trivia while also tending to our tummies' needs.
I'm always a sucker for friend shrimp and the Shrimper's Heaven did not disappoint. But I think my favorites were a tie between Lt. Dan's Drunken Shrimp (pictured above) or Jenny's Catch with Lobster Butter Sauce (pictured right here). Oh man it they were SO good. The portions were very generous so we were happily stuffed just sharing a few dishes. See the full menu here.
7. Bula Bar and Grille at the Royal Pacific Resort
We had the pleasure of staying at Loews Royal Pacific Resort during the Family Forward retreat with Mom It Forward and the first day we were there we camped out by the amazing pool (more on that in a different post). But I was VERY impressed by the poolside food options. Not only were they super yummy but the portions were giant making them very sharable and a great bang for your buck. We tried the burger and yummy chicken sandwich both which came which a geneorus portion of fries.
The kids meals were equally as big and tasty. And of course how can you pass up a poolside frozen daiquiri?
8. Pumpkin Juice
Butterbeer get's all the fame but if you are a fan of pumpkin stuff (like my husband) then you'll want to grab yourself one of these. The pumpkin juice comes in the cutest bottle (yes I brought it home). It's like a yummy refreshing spiced thin juice that tastes like fall in a bottle.
9. Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour
And last but not least I highly highly recommend the delicious ice cream from Florean Frotescue's in Diagon Alley. This is your chance to try butterbeer in yet another form -soft serve ice cream. I'm not going to lie that butterbeer cone my sister and nieces got was DELISH.
But I was happy with the flavors I picked to share with the hubby -Salted Caramel Blondie (one of their best sellers so suuuuuuppppper yummy flavors) and Apple Crumble.
I was so pleasantly surprised with all the food we had during our trip. Have you been to Universal Studios Orlando? Is there anything else I need to make sure to try next time I'm in town?
