Three Broomsticks at Wizarding World of Harry Potter serves traditional Full English breakfast

Published: September 12, 2010 at 7:19 PM

The Full English breakfast at Universal Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter's Three Broomsticks restaurant is still a hard ticket to get, but I snuck in, with video.

Here's my full review.

Sorry to be picky, but why is there a croissant on the plate?? Not an English breakfast item, and where is the fried bread? the sausages? The eggs should be fried. Not then a true Traditional Full English. Where is the cholesterol? the heart attack? Come on if you're going to do it, do it properly.

Another fine piece of video journalism from Scott.

I am always amused, though, when an eatery in one Country attempts to re-create a "traditional" dish from another. " Amused "sounds patronising but I sincerely don't mean it that way. It's just that food sometimes gets lost in translation in a similar manner to words.

The traditional english breakfast would never include hash browns but might, sometimes, have sauteed potatoes. More often than not, though, potatoes don't make it to the plate at all. I should add that the full English breakfast differs around the regions of the UK and nobody is ever going to truly tie down a "definitive " version.

Also In the UK we call blood sausage " Black Pudding" . This can be replaced with "white pudding" in some areas mainly in the North and Scotlandand has more oatmeal and less blood.

For a full English you would always get buttered toast with jam or marmalade ( croissants are French ) and a pot of tea ( not coffee ). Butterbeer doesn't exist outside of WWHP.

All in all I think that the people at The Three Broomsticks have done a pretty good job. I'm not sure if I'll try it because, like Scott, I'd rather have something different when on holiday.

I'm off to Scott Joseph's site to read more.................

It looks very nice but wheres the fried bread?

To be honest I never have the full English at home but if we go away for the weekend then I enjoy it, but with fried eggs and fried bread or buttered toast for dipping in the eggs.

Eat too many of these those and you may be calling for the paramedics!

I'm not surprised that it's somewhat inauthentic. Tea isn't nearly as popular as coffee in the U.S., and although fried bread would probably do well with patrons, porridge would not. I can't see mass-produced porridge tasting very good.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't "egg in the basket" an English dish?
