Harry Potter World FOOD!

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter may be known for the magic, the wands, or the rides, but it really should be known for the FOOD! Maybe it's just me, but theme park food always seems to be really expensive and subpar. That's not the case at Harry Potter World at Universal Studios Hollywood! Here's what you need to check out!

BUTTERBEER! This is the most iconic drink from Harry Potter world! My family went to Universal Studios 5 days, and each day we got a butterbeer to share! I will say that I only ever tried the frozen one because I've heard from so many people that it's the better one, so try the normal one at your own risk. It is so hard to describe this drink, but it is cream soda-esque with a hint of butterscotch and a really smooth, sweet finish. It's seriously perfection in a cup. 

Three Broomsticks: This is the restaurant within the Harry Potter World. You need to head there for lunch or dinner to really get the best selection of food! In the top picture you can see the shepherds pie and the ribs and the bottom picture is the sticky toffee pudding. The shepherds pie was seriously so good and although my picture makes all the food look small, it was a really generous portion. The sticky toffee pudding is a must eat! It's a beautiful cake covered in caramel and a toffee sauce with a scoop of ice cream on top. If you visit with a larger group, you can get the "great feast" which includes chicken, ribs, salad, corn, and potatoes for $50. I've heard from a worker there that she's seen groups of 6 that haven't finished that meal, so it's a pretty good value! 
While this isn't the cheapest place to eat (what theme park restaurant is?!?), it really isn't that expensive either. My mom has said we spend more on food at casual dining restaurants at home than we did at three broomsticks! 

Let me know if you try anything out from Harry Potter World, and if you've tried the regular butterbeer, let me know your thoughts on it! Also give this blog a follow on bloglovin to stay updated on all the new posts!
