Top Three Things You Should Be Eating At Universal Orlando This Week (December 26th, 2021)


In terms of the calendar year, we reached the end. In terms of holiday food offerings at Universal Orlando, we failed to discover them all. Yet, the holiday season ends at Universal Orlando on Jan 2nd. Though I suspect several of today’s “Top 3” will return, their time as holiday food ends soon.

Here are my last three weekly suggestions for 2021.

As a bonus, vegan diners will enjoy a few things on this list.

First, we find the VBLT. This vegan sandwich uses tempeh as the “bacon” component. If you are unfamiliar with tempeh, this cooked soybean product creates an excellent protein texture. This tempeh merges with the sauces and seasoning around it creating solid flavor. This sandwich features the tempeh bacon within a cranberry bread. As expected in this vegan BLT, tomatoes, arugula, and a tomato aioli round out the “LT” components. Universal Orlando’s version contains vegan pepper jack cheese. The overall flavor meets the desired standard of a BLT. Guests can find this sandwich across from Mel’s Drive-in near the lagoon.

Next, a food truck near music stage in Universal Studios Florida serves Vegan Sausage and Peppers. Universal Orlando offers solid vegan options even seasonally. This menu item consists of grilled vegan Italian sausage topped with marinara, green peppers, onions, and vegan shredded cheese. Even my non-vegan friends found this creation enjoyable.

Lastly, we move to Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen. For the holiday season, the “Red Hot” Holiday Shake appeared. This dessert creation consists of “Red Hot” candies, crushed peppermint, and a Christmas tree snack cake on top. As per usual, this milkshake provides excellent photo opportunities for your social networking.  Though this treat may be more than one person can handle, guests enjoy this innovation.

I hope you are having a good holiday season. I will see you next week for the next installment for “Top 3.”
