Here’s some food for thought: Did you know Walt Disney World ® and Universal Orlando serve up more than just entertaining shows and attractions? They also offer plenty of innovative culinary dishes you simply can’t find anywhere else. From authentic Cajun to spicy Mexican and everything in between, Walt Disney World ® and Universal Orlando serve it all.
So what’s on today’s menu? Shrimp!
You’ll find more shrimp dishes than you can count at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company Restaurant in Universal Orlando’s CityWalk. Just like Bubba says in the hit film “Forrest Gump,” “Shrimp is the fruit of the sea... you can barbeque it, boil it, broil it, bake it, steam it, stuff it...” that’s exactly what you’ll get at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company with such shrimp options as Cajun Shrimp, Shrimp Shack Mac & Cheese, Shrimp New Orleans, Shrimp Po’ Boys, Mama blue’s Southern Charmed Fried Shrimp, “I’m Stuffed!” Shrimp and so much more.
For an authentic taste of the sea both Latin Quarter at CityWalk and French Courtyard Quarter inside Universal offer some of the best Cajun inspired shrimp in all of Orlando.
Latin Quarter shows off their culinary creativity with their sweet and crunchy Coconut Shrimp as well as the innovative Shrimp & Corvina Ceviche and Bacon wrapped Shrimp stuffed with Pepper jack cheese. And every year for the Mardi Gras celebration the French Quarter Courtyard brings the tastes of the Big Easy to the streets of Orlando with its signature dish, the shrimp-packed gumbo! And at just $5 a bowl, this dish is one of the best food bargains at the park.
At Walt Disney World ®, Epcot ® serves its shrimp with a Mexican twist at La Hacienda where you can try the spicy shrimp tacos or Parillada Del Mar (shrimp and scallops). Or try the classic shrimp cocktail Mexican-style at La Cava del Tequila. If you like your shrimp but don’t have time to sit and wait for it, try Epcot’s ® on the go restaurant The Refreshment Port for the Crispy Fried Shrimp with special sauce, which tastes like a rich Cajun Tartar sauce; it’s good!
For more fried shrimp, check out Columbia Harbour House in Magic Kingdom ®. If you go through the park clockwise, you’ll be hitting this restaurant come lunch-time.
At Hollywood Studios ™, enjoy your burger topped with shrimp at ABC Commissary and at Animal Kingdom ® let your taste buds go on a tasty expedition with Yak & Yeti Restaurant’s signature dish, the tempura-battered shrimp dipped in chili plum sauce with coconut-ginger rice.
