Of course I had to include food in this little series because,lets be real, if you’ve been to America you’ll know that the food is INSANE and so tasty.
I will include my favourite foods/meals and the best places that we visited to eat too.
My favourite American eatery was by far…. Denny’s!! I loved it.
It was everything I imagined an American diner to be and the food was incredible.
My favourite meal (I had it both times that we visited) was ‘Moons over my Hammy’ A delish breakfast sandwich served with their Hash browns on the side.
Their hash browns are a little different to ours but they are super yummy.
I also loved the Dennys milkshakes, I had the Oreo one the cake batter one too.
The cake batter one was amazing, cake-tastic!
Chuy’s Mexican food
My sister noticed this Mexican restaurant when we were in a taxi on our way back from Wal-Mart. The food was incredible, probably one of the best Mexican meals that I’ve ever had.
You were never going to go hungry as they bring over lovely warm and salty tortilla chips (refilled as soon as the basket is empty) These go perfectly with the guacamole 😍
The meals are insane, typical giant American portions but so flavourful.
I went for a combo, which was great as it was made up of different Mexican meals, perfect if you want to try lots of different dishes or can’t decide what to go for!!
We all really enjoyed this meal.
Our hotel served some amazing food.
The breakfast was all inclusive and thanks to Virgin we were upgraded 👍🏻
The hot buffet & continental options were fantastic and they changed each day.
My favourite were the Mickey Mouse waffles 😍 Pancakes & their incredibly crispy bacon, it was to die for (put the pancakes & bacon together and your onto a winner)
I also discovered a love of fruit loops too haha!!
Their lunchtime food was also delicious. They did a lovely BBQ on a Saturday which included the usual burgers and hot dogs, as well as some A-MAZ-ING nachos. All very reasonably priced too.
They did delicious sandwiches, crispy fries, quesadillas, platters to share and more. I loved the sound of everything on the menu tbh, it was always a hard choice so we often got the platters to share, as a group, so we could try a bit of everything.
Now of course the Harryer areas of Universal were my ultimate fave! But the food was actually pretty good too.
At the two separate parks (Islands of Adventure, Hogsmede & Hogwarts castle and Universal Studios, Diagon Alley) they have eateries based on places from the Harry Potter books.
Me and my twin sister Sarah ate at ‘The Leaky Cauldron’ in Diagon Alley during our Harry Potter day and on our last Universal day we all ate as a group at ‘The Three Broomsticks’ in Hogsmede.
They served traditional British food and the fish and chips were to die for!! I had them both times because they were so good.
The ice cream at Florean Fortescues in Diagon Alley was amazing too. There weren’t that many good ice cream places in the area that we were in so this ice cream was a welcome treat and they did some really interesting and very yummy flavours.
The food was so amazing in America, one of my favourite cuisines.
Definatly one of the holiday highlights.
Until next time,
