Eating at Universal Studios Hollywood

Theme park food is generally pricey and junky. Hot dogs, burgers, popcorn, pizza, churros, ice-cream, all kinds of cold drinks and sweet things.

Luckily at the Wizarding World there is the Three Broomsticks

I went with the bangers and mash. I love how there was so much vegetables – peas, cabbage, grilled tomato and of course the mash.

 

The husband ordered the Sunday roast and that was a surprisingly large piece of prime rib. I felt that it could have used more salt though!

 

The building itself is a beautiful space!

 

 

And can you say that you’ve been to Wizarding World if you haven’t had a Butterbeer? It’s like a root beer with some butterscotch notes to it.

Right next to Wizarding World is Springfield and other than Krusty Burgers and Duff Beer (both of which are available for purchase!) the other iconic Simpsons refreshment is the Lard Lad Donut. It is humongous (the size of a cake really) and comes in several flavours but we went with the traditional pink with sprinkles. It was surprisingly light for a doughnut and so worked well with the frosting. Of course it was shared by six of us but we had a nice sized piece each.

 

There are quite a few options for food around the park, especially in the Springfield area – Cletus’ Chicken Shack, Luigi’s Pizza, Bumblebee Man’s Taco truck, Sud’s McDuff’s Hot Dogs. We ended up in the Despicable Me area, and ate at Gru’s Lab Cafe, which had rotisserie chicken, meatball subs and this noodle salad thing I decided on, which interestingly had banana chips, watermelon cubes, lettuce, peppers, sprouts.
