Soft-Serve Butterbeer, Bangers and Mash on Menu at Wizarding World of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley

After the success of bringing Butterbeer to life, Universal's chefs have cooked up other themed dishes for new Harry Potter park

First frothy mugs of Butterbeer, now Chocolate Chili, Bangers and Mash and Sticky Toffee Pudding will be on the menu at Diagon Alley when Universal Studios Florida opens the expansion of its Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in June.

Universal Orlando Resort’s culinary team spent years studying J.K. Rowling’s books and Warner Bros.’ Harry Potter films, and gathered inspiration from British pubs, to come up with recipes to serve inside Diagon Alley’s eateries.

The restaurants will include:

The Leaky Cauldron, the popular pub and inn for wizards where guests can order Fisherman’s Pie (salmon, shrimp and cod baked together under a potato crust), Bangers and Mash (roasted sausages with creamy mashed potatoes), Toad in the Hole (sausage baked into a Yorkshire pudding and served with onion gravy), Fish and Chips, and the Ploughman’s (see above: a platter of English cheese, crusty bread, cornichon pickles, apple beet salad, Branston pickle and a Scotch egg).

Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour, where Hagrid bought Harry a chocolate and raspberry ice-cream with chopped nuts in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” will offer 20 unique ice-cream flavors including earl grey and lavender, sticky toffee pudding, chocolate chili, clotted cream, salted caramel blondie, apple crumble, strawberry and peanut butter, orange marmalade and a soft-serve ice-cream flavor of Butterbeer.

Horizont Alley, on a street branching off Diagon Alley, where guests will be able to transform drinks with elixirs from Eternelle’s Elixir of Refreshment. The available elixir selection at the cart includes Draught of Peace, Babbling Beverage, Elixir to Induce Euphoria and Fire Protection Potion.

— And for more beverages, eateries will also serve new draught beers created exclusively for the land, including Wizard’s Brew and Dragon Scale, new beverages like Fishy Green Ale and Tongue Tying Lemon Squash, and popular drinks Pumpkin Juice and Butterbeer that have been big sellers since Wizarding World opened in 2010.
