The three best things you should eat at Universal Orlando this week (April 3, 2022)
If you’re anything like me, you appreciate all the Mardi Gras food offered this year at Universal Orlando. However, at some point you have to look at other foods. This week, in the “Top 3,” we’re using the “made up” national food holidays of the United States for our suggestions.
April 4and, some people celebrate National Cordon Bleu Day. A good choice for a Cordon Bleu-style meal is Toothsome Chocolate Factory and Savory Feast Kitchen in the CityWalk area. Customers can purchase a chicken cordon bleu sandwich for $15.95. This sandwich comes with a choice of homemade chips or fried potatoes. The menu description says buttermilk fried chicken breast stuffed with sliced ham and Swiss cheese. The bun is a brioche bun. Additional toppings with this sandwich are fresh spinach and fontina mornay.
April 7and, the food festival is called National Burrito Day. If you’re looking for a solid burrito on Universal Orlando’s property, an obvious choice involves Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food. This full-service location also resides in the CityWalk area. As a Mexican restaurant you expect burritos. The burrito here is $16.95. Additionally, customers can choose between chicken or ground beef as the protein component. Burritos also include rice, pico de gallo, menonita cheese. They come topped with three sauce and queso. Guacamole and black beans come on the side.
Finally, National Empanada Day falls on April 8.and. Universal Orlando sells empanadas at several quick service outlets. You can sometimes find it at the Coke kiosk in CityWalk. A breakfast version is sold at Croissant Moon Bakery in Islands of Adventure. However, my favorite comes from Natural Selections in the Jurassic Park area. I previously did a review of beef empanadas in January 2022. These are now $7.99. The flavor is also solid for these empanadas.
Thanks for reading about the foodie vacation you may have known about before today. Next week, I can’t wait to bring you another installment of “Top 3” things you should eat at Universal Orlando.
As always, eat your way!
