Top Three Things You Should Be Eating at Universal Orlando This Week (July 31st, 2022)


For many people, the USA school schedule will begin to control their days soon. In Florida, for example, children and teens will resume school in a few weeks. Since schools are resuming, that means my next venture to Orlando grows closer. So, you know, I will be covering Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party over in Lake Buena Vista. For more coverage of that, check back with our site in middle of August and/or my twitter (@pastorjonself). Also, during that trip, I will be planning to enjoy some of the Universal Orlando passholder days exclusive food items. This week, I will theorize three good dining choices for you during your next trip to Universal Orlando. For all three of these places, I have reservations already booked for any upcoming trip. All three of these full-service dining options work as good options for your vacation.

Arguably, Vivo Italian Kitchen serves some of best Italian food in area. If you read last week’s “Top 3”, you already know that though. For this week at Vivo Italian Kitchen, I will pick one of their pizzas. The pizzas here look and taste good. The pizza arrives after spending some time in a wood fired oven. The texture and consistently shine with these pizzas with high quality ingredients. The price point provides value here for these pizzas. The Italian Meat Pizza costs $18 for example.

Though I commonly tell people that equal or better true Mexican cuisines can be located nearby Universal Orlando property, I have a reservation at Antojitos. The official name of this place is Antojitos Authentic Mexican Cuisine. Though it will not be “Taco Tuesday” when I visit, I suggest the tacos here. No matter what your preference regarding this style of food, you will find some tacos to enjoy. Antojitos offers five varieties of tacos. Guests select between braised beef, pork, chicken, carne asada, and grilled nopales, as the vegan option. These range in price from $15-$17 total with a side of rice and beans.

This week, we will finish at Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen. Though I enjoy many of the savory items here, we will enjoy a dessert. So, we can share, we will get a “May Contain Nuts” Sundae. Menu description tells us to expect peanut butter ice cream, peanut brittle, Reese’s® peanut butter cups, chocolate peanut butter pie, whipped topping, peanut butter sauce, topped with Reese’s® Pieces. This large sundae costs $13.50 currently.

After this tour of CityWalk dining, we should not be hungry. Only time will tell if I stay with those reservations and what I will really order for dining reviews. Stay tuned to and my twitter (@pastorjonself) for updates on “Passholder Days” food options. As always, eat like you mean it!
