Universal Orlando 'leaks' some Diagon Alley food photos

The head of publicity at the Universal Orlando resort, Tom Schroder, tweeted some very interesting photos this morning.

Leaky Cauldron food

"Can you guess what I'm getting to try for lunch today ?" Schroder wrote, posting the photo above, which includes some classic British dishes, including fish n' chips, bangers and mash (sausages and mashed potatoes), Scotch eggs and cheeses, a pie, and what looks like a Toad in a Hole β€” sausages baked into, essentially, a Yorkshire pudding.

It doesn't take a wizard to figure out that these might be some of the items on the menu at The Leaky Cauldron when the restaurant opens with the rest of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida this summer.

But that wasn't all that Schroder revealed: "And dessert! Just some of the special items we've created."

Here we have chocolate potted cream, apple red currant tarts, and a variety of cookies. Plus,

There will be a Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour in Diagon Alley, in addition to The Leaky Cauldron.

What are you looking forward to eating at Diagon Alley this summer?

Sweet! So it's been confirmed. You'll have two restaurant choices inside the studio park (The Leaky Cauldron and Finnigans) to consume bangers and mash. The British folk will go bonkers over this!

I really want the Florian ice cream flavors to be weird and unique like you can't get anywhere in the world. Like chocolate bacon or something else extravagant and unusual.

Something about this food or the presentation of it (black plastic plates?) is slightly underwhelming.

Seeing the picture of this food reminds me of a comment made by travel writer Bill Marsano.

β€œThe British Empire was created as a by-product of generations of desperate Englishmen roaming the world in search of a decent meal.”

Hi, looks great, loking forward to visiting in the summer to see the new area. Not sure about bangers and mash though, like your steak and ribs too much.
