If you’re going to Universal Studios and consider yourself a foodie, you’re in for a real treat—quite literally. This famous theme park has some of the most unique food and drinks options that you’ll ever come across, many of which stem from popular shows and movies.
Start making a list of everything you want to try, because you won’t be able to get these dining experiences anywhere else.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
If you’re looking for a magical dining experience, look no further than The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Hogsmead and Diagon Ally are home to some of the best treats in the entire park. Their two restaurants, being The Three Broomsticks and The Leaky Caudron, have plenty of fun dishes that you might see lining the great hall on feast night, such as fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, beef pasties, turkey legs, and more.
But the unique foods and drinks are where The Wizarding World really shines. Aside from the plethora of wizarding treats available at Honeydukes, you can get tasty sweets like cauldron cakes, elixirs for your gilly water, wizarding ice cream flavors at Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor, and more.
And that doesn’t even include all the famous wizarding drinks that you won’t be able to get anywhere else, such as the iconic butterbeer (which comes in a variety of forms), pumpkin juice, tongue-tying lemon squash, Otter’s fizzy orange juice, peachtree fizzing tea, fishy green ale, wizard’s brew, dragon scale beer, and plenty more.
The iconic land of The Simpsons truly comes to life in the Springfield section of Universal Studios. Here, you can try several unique foods that are seen in the show while you watch an episode on one of the mounted TVs littered around. Fast Food Blvd. has a variety of food options for you to try, like Mexican at Bumblebee Man’s Taco Truck, healthy options—like the kind offered at Lean Kitchen Company—at Lisa’s Teahouse of Horrors, and chicken at Cletus’ Chicken Shack.
But a lot of people that come here want to try the famous Krusty Burger or The Klogger, along with a Flaming Moe, which is a stylish drink that fizzles and smokes but tastes delicious. Then over at the Duff Brewery or at Moe’s Tavern, you can slurp down a refreshing Duff or Squishee drink. Then, if you’re still craving something sweet, head over to Lard Lad’s for the biggest donut you’ve ever seen!
Oh, the places you’ll go to eat in Seuss Landing. Even if you don’t have a child to come enjoy the attractions in this section of the park, you might want to consider stopping by for the food alone. The Circus McGurkus Cafe Stoo-Pendous! is a fun and silly meal with a show, even if the food is pretty typical, but there’s nothing average about the food at the Green Eggs and Ham Cafe, where you can get Green Eggs and Ham tator tots and Who Hash served out of a can. Then you can wash it all down at Moose Juice, Goose Juice for, well, Moose Juice and Goose Juice, along with other bubbly beverages.
And to finish it all off, stop by Hop on Pop Ice Cream Shop for Dr. Seuss-inspired frozen treats.
Just One More Bite
By the time you cross these locations off your bucket list, you won’t have room for even a single bite—unless that last bite happens to be a final taste of butterbeer ice cream, that is.
