PHOTOS: Mardi Gras Menus Appear at Universal Studios Florida
Menus for the Mardi Gras booths at Universal Studios Florida have finally appeared, two days before the celebrations begin. Universal previously gave us a sneak peek at some items but now we know everything that will be available. The event kicks off on Saturday, February 5, and we’ll be back to review the new dishes and drinks.
The booth outside the Monsters Cafe has various beverages.
The special cocktails are Category 5 Punch and Piña Verde. There’s also a selection of draft beer, canned beer, and wine.
For anyone seeking a non-alcoholic drink, the booth also has bottled soda and water.
A QR code is available to see all Mardi Gras event menus, but the menus are not yet available online.
Continuing through the New York area of the park, these booths have the most traditional Mardi Gras offerings.
First up is king cake, beignets, and mardi gras marshmallow pie. The Category 5 Punch is also available here, along with the Abita Purple Haze draft beer and bottled drinks.
The next booth has cajun twisted frank with chorizo queso, as well as a simple cajun twisted frank and a cajun twisted tater. The beverage here is called “A New Twist on Taters.”
We then have blackened chicken po’boy and shrimp gumbo with rice. Each of these booths has a different draft beer option.
Moving on, the food truck has various arepas and yucca fries.
At Guido’s Gelato, guests will be able to get tomato basil arancini or a meatball garlic bread pressed slider. The special drinks are the orange dream spiked float, the vanilla-amaretto rum gelato float, and the triple-raspberry gelato float.
At “Bloody Merry’s” you’ll find bloody marys, of course.
Here we have crawfish and shrimp bowls, as well as king cake, beignets, and marshmallow pie.
Near the Animal Actors theater, this booth has shrimp laksa and rou jia mo.
