    Two omissions, IMO: The Hogs Head ale at the Hogs Head Tavern in the wizarding world is excellent, and the nachos at the Bula Bar at Loews Royal Pacific are amazing, though I’m not sure what category they’d fall into- too big to be an appetizer, for sure!

    The tomato soup at Mythos is AMAZING. The breakfast pasty at The Leaky Cauldron is so delicious. Love all,of the ice cream flavors at Florian Fortescues…and the High Fashioned at the Chocolate Emporium is my all time fave cocktail anywhere.
