One of the best parts about exploring a new land is the food! The foodie in all of us can have an amazing gastronomic experience in Diagon Alley at the Universal Orlando Resort. Whether you are a fan of the Harry Potter series or you are just up for some good grub, there are exciting things to try at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Diagon Alley. From traditional British favorites like Bangers and Mash to ice-cream with unique flavors like Chocolate Chili, you can savor all new dining experiences created exclusively for the new Harry Potter land. You will feel as if you have been transported right to England.
So much attention was paid to detail in the making of Diagon Alley and the food was certainly not left out. The Culinary team at Universal Orlando went to great lengths to ensure the food experience was as authentic as possible. They spent years studying the books and films and gathered inspiration from British pubs to develop authentic recipes with imported ingredients from England. They held countless tastings, to ensure perfection at each food and beverage location.
Stop inside the Leaky Cauldron, the popular wizarding pub where you can choose traditional British dishes like Bangers and Mash, Fisherman’s Pie, Toad in the Hole, and Fish and Chips. If you are interested in beverages you can try new draught beers created exclusively for Diagon Alley- Wizard’s Brew and Dragon Scale – and enjoy popular drinks, like Pumpkin Juice and Butterbeer, as well as new beverages like Fishy Green Ale and Tongue Tying Lemon Squash. Enjoy your food and channel your inner Harry Potter, because you will feel like you are in a scene directly of the book pages or movies.
Further down Diagon Alley is Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour, the same ice-cream shop where Hagrid bought Harry any ice-cream in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” Inside the whimsical shop you can indulge in more than 20 unique ice-cream flavors including Earl Grey and Lavender, Chocolate Chili, Clotted Cream, and even a soft-serve ice-cream flavor of Butterbeer. There are also a variety of fresh pastries, and cakes.
Still not full? A street branching off Diagon Alley houses Eternelle’s Elixir of Refreshment Cart. Some available elixir selections include Draught of Peace, Babbling Beverage, and Fire Protection Potion. Adding these elixirs to Gillywater, transforms it before your eyes. There is delicious and authentic fare to experience in Diagon Alley, so go hungry and enjoy immersing yourself in London and the Harry Potter experience.
