As the Harry Potter movies celebrate its 20th anniversary, it is the perfect time to revisit some iconic Wizarding World foods. While sipping a Butterbeer in the shadows of Hogwarts Castle will always be special, it isn’t the only themed food options at Universal Orlando Resort. Sometimes the tastiest treats are the one that are a little hidden.

With two Harry Potter worlds at both Universal Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios, the numerous food options allow guests to have breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Wizarding World. Although the theme parks have a plethora of other delicious food options, Harry Potter fans are often tempted to devour all the magical meals.

Butterbeer is more than just a drink that can be drunk regular, frozen or hot, that flavor influences a variety of treats. A stop at Florean Fortescue’s for Butterbeer ice cream is delightful on a warm afternoon.

While that classic flavor beckons, the Florean Fortescue’s menu showcases a variety of innovative ice cream flavors. From tea-influenced flavors to a chocolate with some spice, these ice creams might cast a spell that makes you pick a different scoop than vanilla.

Although sweet treats tempt at every turn, savory Wizard World foods deserve to be part of the discussion. Always a popular choice is the fish and chips. Perfectly crispy, this meal is one of the best at Universal Orlando.

For a heartier dish, the Shepard’s Pie is a must try. From the rich rue to the luscious potatoes, that classic food feels as if it was made in grandma’s kitchen. On a cool afternoon, it satisfies in the best possible way. And, if so inclined, enjoy it with a Dragon Scale beer.

Since British food serves as the menu inspiration, a great meal to share with a friend is the Ploughman’s. With English cheese, crusty bread, salad, scotch egg and more, this meal is plenty of food. It will take a big appetite to make it all disappear.

With all the food, a great refreshment needs to be enjoyed, as well. For the older crowd, the specialty beers, like the Dragon Scale, are delicious, the themed non-alcoholic options entice, too. Although the Fishy Green Ale with its blueberry “fish eyes” is intriguing, the Peachtree Fizzing Tea is delightful. A touch spicy from the ginger yet still slightly sweet, it pairs with almost anything on the menu.

Overall, there Wizarding World foods are as authentic as all the other details pulled directly from the Harry Potter world. For the fans who wants a savor every moment of that experience, enjoying an extra treat or two during the visit to Universal Orlando is a must. The churros and crepes can wait for another day.
