Let's create the menu for the Leaky Cauldron

Edited: January 23, 2014, 10:23 AM · Universal Creative's Mark Woodbury didn't reveal any details about the Leaky Cauldron's menu during today's Diagon Alley webcast. (I submitted a question about it.) But that won't stop us from creating a wish list.

What would you like to see Universal offer on the menu at the Leaky Cauldron restaurant in Diagon Alley? Let's presume that we're talking about British pub fare here, but that leaves quite a bit of room for inspiration.

January 23, 2014, 2:48 PM · Exploding lemonade might be a mistake, though.
January 23, 2014, 2:49 PM · Okay, I will give it a go.

I make this salad in the fall that I really think is fun and my boys love it; they call it "witch's salad" or "spooky salad". It's purple kale, orange carrots, green celery, and then pork or turkey or whatever meat I make. I put an orange dijon mustard dressing on it.

Universal should make "spooky" looking dishes like this. There are purple potatoes that look really cool. Other stuff that is magical looking, like those African horned melons and dragonfruit. Things like that. Visually interesting and flavors that have words like "dragon" in them.

I also would like to see menu items that make me think of eating at Hogwarts in the dining room there. Roast turkeys and hams and other things that seem conjured up in a magical feast.

Things like that.

Also...get some items on there that I know people enjoy in pubs. How about an Irish chicken curry (it's Indian curry spices with golden raisins and chicken over rice).

Give people things that they can't get at any other theme park on Earth.

January 23, 2014, 4:02 PM · Universal now is confirming fish and chips (a Three Broomsticks holdover) and bangers and mash for Leaky Cauldron.
January 23, 2014, 9:10 PM · This could be a prime opportunity for Universal to start serving lamb or game birds like goose in the parks.
January 24, 2014, 9:31 AM · I could go for some shepherd's pie.

Some Baileys Irish Creme on the beverage menu would be welcome too.

January 24, 2014, 12:24 PM · I also think shepherd's pie would be a good choice.
January 25, 2014, 7:27 AM · As long as it is more "Harry Potter-ish" than the fare at the Three Broomsticks (which was very disappointing!) then I will be happy. I still wish they would have a back-to-school family-style feast (with a sorting hat) like in the book and movie. It could be a big ticket item. People (like me) would pay it for the experience and the fantastic eats.
January 25, 2014, 1:00 PM · Agreed. I'm encouraged by talk that the restaurant in Hollywood's version of the Wizarding World might be themed to the Great Hall and be included inside the castle. While I wouldn't expect the welcoming feast to be the normal operation of that restaurant, such a meal could be staged there for special (hard ticket) events.

Shut up and take my money
