REVIEW: Greek Honey Puffs are a Sweet Addition to Fire Eater’s Grill at Universal’s Islands of Adventure
If you’re visiting the Lost Continent at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, there aren’t very many things to do besides shop and eat. Poseidon’s Fury has been closed for over a year now, so we typically only visit the Lost Continent for a Knife, Fork, and Spoon Grilled Cheese from Mythos. While passing by Fire Eater’s Grill, we spotted Greek Honey Puffs on the menu and knew we had to stop and give them a try.
The snack offerings from this stand are very reasonably priced, and we’re big fans of the Pita with Tzatziki. This little treat looks like the perfect serving to share, but we won’t judge if you don’t.
Four crispy fried dough balls are drizzled with honey and sprinkled with sesame seeds. There’s plenty of honey on the bottom of the bowl for dipping, too.
We weren’t really sure what to expect when we bit into them, but they’re just fried dough. No filling of any sort. They were a little dry, but the honey helped soften them up.
The puffs are a little crispy and reminded us a little of a funnel cake. They aren’t sweet on their own, but the honey adds a lot of flavor. The honey has a strong, sweet taste with almost a hint of citrus. It tasted like orange blossom honey, and we really enjoyed it.
The honey really brings this snack to the next level. The dough balls are pretty basic, but the honey adds a really unique and natural sweetness.
It’s nice to see Universal Orlando adding more adventurous food offerings around the park. This might not be as much fun as the Blue Churro, but it’s still a nice way to satisfy your sweet tooth at Islands of Adventure. Let us know in the comments if you’ll be trying these Greek Honey Puffs on your next visit to the Lost Continent.
