Costa-Rican Inspired Food and Tiki Drinks Highlight The New Jurassic World At Universal Studios

The day that Universal Studios announced that they were going to be shutting down their longstanding Jurassic Park: The Ride was a day that I poured out a little liquor for a legend gone. And though I could have wallowed in that sorrow for a bit, all was alleviated with the announcement of the shut down only allowing for a refurbishment of the ride. Thankfully, what soothed my dino-loving self was news that the whole Jurassic Park experience at Universal Studios was getting upgraded into a whole Jurassic World motif.

Besides the ride itself being reformatted, the new Jurassic World encounter comes complete with new dining options in the form of Isla Nu-bar and Jurassic Cafe.

At Isla Nu-bar, adventurers can cool off with flavorful tropical-themed Tiki cocktails that are served in fun, collectible Tiki cups.

The new Jurassic Café is serving up a delectable selection of Costa Rican-themed cuisine, inspired by the location of the Jurassic World movies.  Park goers can look forward to Citrus Glazed Chicken, Fresh Roasted Mahi-mahi, an Isla Burger, Pomegranate Guacamole with plantain chips, and an assortment of desserts like a Vanilla Bean Tres Leches Cake. To hone in on the Costa Rican vibes, all entrees will be accompanied by fresh green papaya salad and the country’s national dish, Gallo Pinto – which is a traditional rice and beans.

Check out the pics below for mouth-watering details of the new dishes being served up at the Jurassic Cafe within the new Jurassic World experience at Universal Studios Hollywood.

How To Pair Your Favorite Dinosaur With Your Favorite Beer

With Jurassic World coming out this weekend, it’s safe to say most of us have dinosaurs on the brain. While you’re out enjoying drinks before the movie, why not put yourself in the footprints of the dinos themselves.

The folks at Let’s Grab A Beer designed a pretty charming infographic pairing popular dinosaurs with popular beers. Imagine a Tyrannosaurus Rex downing a pilsner or a Brachiosaur chugging a IPA.

Check out the graphic below and see what kind of dinosaur drinking buddy you have the most in common with.
