Leaky Cauldron – Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando
We just came back from a trip to Universal Orlando to visit the new addition to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley. The place was simply amazing, it was like stepping into the world of Harry Potter. Anyway, I’m here to talk about our dining experience there, we chose to eat at Leaky Cauldron.
Leaky Cauldron serves traditional British fare. A menu board is placed on both sides of the entrance, inside there are roped lines leading to the register where you place your order. After your order is taken you will be handed your drinks and a numbered candlestick. Then asked to proceed to the dining hall where someone will seat you at your table. Your food will be delivered to you once it’s ready.
Each of us got something different so that we can taste most of what they have to offer. For the mains we got the following:
Fish and Chips – North Atlantic cod battered and fried with french fries and tartar sauce
Beef and Lamb Guiness stew – a combination of beef and lamb with chunky root vegetables served in a warm crusty bread bowl.
Cottage pie – a savory combination of beef and vegetables in a potato crust served with garden salad.
Toad in the Hole – a popular dish of English sausage baked into a Yorkshire pudding and served with onion gravy, minted peas and roasted tomato.
For beverages of course we got butter beer, the original, frozen and hot and pumpkin juice.
Dining at Leaky Cauldron just completed our magical experience of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The overall feel, ambiance and look of the place is really something straight out of the book. The food was good, we specially liked the fish and chips and toad in the hole. And of course we will never get tired of butter beer.
