Unique Island-Inspired Food Coming to Universal’s Volcano Bay
As a Research & Development Chef at Universal Orlando Resort, I’ve gotten to create some unique food dishes. But it was a whole other experience to help design an entire menu for our third park, Universal’s Volcano Bay.
From the start, our award-winning culinary team, led by Corporate Executive Chef Steven Jayson, was excited to elevate the food and beverage experience at Volcano Bay. From the minute you arrive in the morning until well into the night, you’ll have more than 60 delicious options to choose from, from snacks to entrees to desserts.
Here’s a sneak peek at just a few.
When you’re here, you (and your taste buds) will enjoy a wide range of island-inspired dishes, all inspired by the flavors of the South Pacific. What suits your tastes? Try a Poke Poke Bowl or Mango BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich or Island Chicken Salad. Plus—for the grownups—you can enhance your relaxation experience and sip on refreshing signature cocktails and beer while you lounge by the water.
There’s no denying how delicious the slowly-smoked glazed Hawaiian Ribs with boniato mash and sweet plantains is. One of my personal favorites is the Coconut Curry Chicken made with braised chicken, green coconut curry sauce, white rice, coconut and cilantro with sweet plantains. And our specialty burgers are sure to fill up for a day of thrills and relaxation.You’ll find mouthwatering island flavors for everyone at these dining locations, all conveniently placed around the park:
- Kohola Reef Restaurant & Social Club
- Whakawaiwai Eats
- The Feasting Frog
You’ll never have to walk far to fuel up for more sliding, splashing, relaxing and laughing with your family and friends.
If you love traditional theme park food, have no fear. There are options like chicken fingers, hamburgers and pizza for you to enjoy as well. And many of these dishes are available as part of Volcano Bay’s Universal Dining Plan option.If you’re not already hungry enough, here’s a sneak peak at some of these dishes. You’ll be able to enjoy everything at Universal’s Volcano Bay when it grand opens on May 25.
