Universal Studios Florida

Universal Studios theme park in Orlando has a few decent food items worth trying if you happen to be there. There are also some pitfalls as well, so be on the look-out.

There’s some cool shit to see, like olive oil from Genco (The Godfather) and Mel’s Diner (Alice).

If you need a snack, there are turkey legs all over. I didn’t try them here, but I did try them at Disney’s Magic Kingdom – they’re fucking great! They taste like ham. Very smoky.

We actually ate a quick lunch at Richter’s Burger Co. Please avoid this place. The burger quality is that of a frozen patty backyard burger. Terrible. Fries were at least pretty good though. And the shakes were thick, like a Wendy’s Frosty.

Springfield!!! This is the land of The Simpsons, in the event that you have been living in a fucking bubble all of your life.

I was immediately pissed off that I didn’t think to try a Krusty burger after just eating that God-aweful burger at Richter’s. Ugh. Or should I say “DOH!” I was tempted to vomit and make room to try it.

All the show favorites make an appearance.

Lard Lad Donuts is Homer’s go-to place for a forbidden donut. We tried a pink with sprinkles (the iconic one from the show) and a jelly. Both were on par with Dunkin Donuts.

Duff Beer has a brewery on site, of course.

This next shot is from the factory tour episode, where all three kinds of Duff beer come from the same tubes (Duff, Duff Lite, Duff Dry).

There actually IS a difference between Duff and Duff Lite at the bar. Both are very slightly hoppy, but the regular is a little more robust, while the “Lite” is a bit more citrus flavored.

Harry Potter’s “Wizarding World” is by far the coolest and most fun part of the park, for me at least.

You can get all sorts of flavored sodas at this one stand:

Or you can try the famous butter beer, which is similar to a cream soda, only sweeter and a bit savory as well.

This joint had some other shit:

Below is a shot of the fishy green ale, a citrus and blueberry drink.

This is a frozen butter beer – essentially a butter beer in slushy form.

Fire Whisky is like a Fireball shot, and Wizard’s Brew is like a Guinness. Not sure what the other shit is.

We ate a quick snack at The Leaky Cauldron, a better than average British food joint that’s set up like a really old tavern.

This is a kids meal fish and chips. Cod. Actually quite good!

This is a plate of two mini pies: cottage pie and fish pie (cottage is essentially shepherd’s pie, and fish pie is like a pot pie with cod, salmon and veggies inside).
