If you are like me, you appreciate all the Mardi Gras food offered this year at Universal Orlando. However, at some point, you must look at other food. This week in the “Top 3”, we are using the “made-up” USA national food holidays for our suggestions.
On April 4th, some people celebrate National Cordon Bleu Day. A good choice for a Cordon Bleu type meal resides at Toothsome Chocolate Factory and Savory Feast Kitchen in CityWalk area. Guests may buy a Chicken Cordon Bleu sandwich for $15.95. This sandwich comes with choice of house made kettle chips or French-fried potatoes. The menu description reads 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.
On April 7th, the food holiday comes by the name of National Burrito Day. If looking for a solid burrito on Universal Orlando property, an obvious choice involves Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food. This full-service location also resides in the CityWalk area. As a Mexican food place, you would expect burritos. The burrito here costs $16.95. Also, guests may select between chicken or ground beef as their protein component. The burritos also include rice, pico de gallo, menonita cheese. They come topped with three and queso sauce. Some guacamole and black beans come as a side.
Finally, National Empanada Day falls on April 8th. Universal Orlando sells empanadas in several quick service locations. You can sometimes find then at the Coke kiosk in CityWalk. A breakfast version is sold at Croissant Moon Bakery in Islands of Adventure. However, my favorite one comes from Natural Selections in Jurassic Park area. Previously, I did a review of Beef Empanadas back in January 2022. These now cost $7.99. The flavor rates as solid for these empanadas.
Thank you for reading through the food holiday you may have known existed before today. Next week, I look forward to bringing you another installment of the “Top 3” things you should be eating at Universal Orlando.
As always, eat like you mean it!
