Talking Best Nachos/Best Fish & Chips??

Hi!!

I love love LOVE this thread! I could look @ food porn all day long!

I'll be in Universal @ the end of September and I'm finding it VERY difficult to choose between all these great places!!

I'm wondering who has the best nachos?? I've seen a few pics from different places that look crazy good, but I'm leaning towards Margaritaville.

Also wondering who would have the best fish & chips....Finnegan's or Three Broomsticks? I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan, but also a big fan of fish & chips (hehe), so wondering where would be the better place to have it.

The only places I ate at in Universal last year were Mel's Diner (terrible) and Mythos (LOVED it). DEFINITELY will be posting some food porn when I return in October!! Planning on Tchoup Chop, Three Broomsticks, Mythos, possibly Finnegan's and somewhere in CW.

Suggestions??

It was not when we were there mid-July.

I don't think anyone reported it was.

We were at IOA three days last week and didn't see Green Eggs & Ham open at any time.

Here are some Mythos pictures! Great meal!!! Note that we stopped at the Reservations kiosk in CityWalk on our way into the park to get our reservation.
I would definitely go back to Mythos, the food, service, and atmosphere were great. Don't forget your 10% AAA discount! (Which we forgot the first few times we purchased Butterbeer - doh!)


Mythos lunch: Blueberry & Pistachio crusted Grilled Pork with smoky mac & cheese - REALLY delicious.


Mythos lunch: Pad thai with grilled chicken.


This was the "Pastabilities": Mythos lunch: Pene with grilled chicken, tomatoes, asparagus, red onion, and italian sausage

And these photos are from Jake's American Bar in the Royal Pacific Resort. Note they don't honor the AAA discount, but if you pay attention when you check into the hotel you'll get a coupon book with a discount for Jakes. We didn't pay attention and only found the coupons when we got home. Another Doh!!!


Cuban sandwich with fries. My friend thought the Cuban was very dry and ended up adding mayo at the table. We ended up splitting the fries since she got a very generous portion.


Hawaiian pizza, or did they call it a flatbread? I don't remember. (pineapple and ham)


Burger with jack cheese and a side salad - YUM. It was really good. You have a couple options for cheeses and side items.

We were in WWoHP on three different days and probably had 6 butterbeers! We enjoyed it that much. We didn't eat at Three Broomsticks, but the food smelled really good. We saw a couple family feasts delivered to the tables and it looked like a great meal, a lot of food.
Lunch at Universal Studios was from Int'l Film & Food Festival (may have gotten the name wrong?) near the Hollywood Pets show. It was nothing exceptional and I didn't take any photos. I had Chicken Parmesan which was ok, others had oriental, and one had a pizza served with extra grease (ick). I would choose another lunch venue next time.

The Kitchen at the Hard Rock Resort

we stayed the first 4 nights at The Hard Rock, so we dined at the kitchen twice. Once for breakfast, which was just standard to us. And also lunch! Lunch was so YUMMY!

The Kitchen-
they start serving lunch promptly at 11am. We were headed to the park and wanted to eat before we went to avoid the standard park food...and we thought we might have an adult beverage to get the day going....I mean it is vacation, right?!


So first things first= drinks!


I had the yummy Turkey and Brie Melt with side salad and house dressing


Hubby got a delicious Roast Turkey Club on multigrain bread with side salad with ranch dressing
