You'll never believe what's on the menu.
It may not be full of magic potions and jumping chocolate frogs but its pretty darn close. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios L.A. has rolled out its menu for the Hogsmeade village including the Three Broomsticks Pub. Ultimately, the food is your typical American grub with British charm. After all, Americans don't need an exact British menu because we already have an American wizarding school for our magical students or what the kids in the states call now-a-days "no maj".
To win over any tourist, one must be impressed by food presentation, atmosphere, and service. J.K. Rowling will not let any of these circumstances go to waste as she continues to boast her billion dollar brand. Below is the list of things the menu entails and it looks pretty promising. Obviously there will be alcohol for adults and butter-beer for the kids. In my opinion that sounds like a pretty fun time and I'm sure the food has been tested by many gourmet chefs to make for perfect results.
You'll be able to chow down starting April 7th.
I dare you to figure out which is the American inspired dishes and which are the British inspired dishes. "Traditional" is a key word in their breakfast presentation. You've got plenty of syrup and bacon. However there's also potatoes, eggs, sausage, croissants, and some hardy meats. Obviously you've seen these foods a million times before but its more for the atmosphere of waking up and enjoying the most important meal of the day in Harry Potter's world.
Automatically, the only thing that I want are the chicken fingers in this picture. Obviously the grapes look pretty appetizing and the potatoes wedges are a nice touch. And if you're going for a more Brit lunch, you can get some fish and chips. I'm sure the macaroni and cheese is delicious because if kids are eating this, it better be tolerable because they are not one to hold back their opinion.
Your generic soup and salad lunch combo. Though they are presented very Panera like, they're probably named something goofy. A fish and chips dinner is always a viable fried choice if you're into that type of thing but a chicken pot pie is definitely your better option. I have to admit that the food styling of the chicken salad is absolutely stunning and definitely something that I would gawk at if served to me.
Very hardy, very meaty, and very traditional. There's a lot of incorporation of vegetables and sauces to make it more authentic. The portions do seem rather large and definitely fresh. I'm not sure if I'm too impressed with the dinner since it seems almost too stereotypical American but I guess it does fit the pub atmosphere. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what people think.
Yes, just go for it.
