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.

This Tiki Bar’s Tribute To ‘The Sandlot’ Features A SPAM And Shrimp Hot Dog


This year marks the 25th anniversary of one of film’s most iconic classics: The Sandlot. To celebrate the baseball-centric movie’s birthday, a Hollywood tiki bar is offering up a unique twist on the game’s quintessential food: the hot dog.

Called the “SPAMlot,” LONO Hollywood’s unique twist on the frankfurter bridges together ballpark eats, Hawaiian-inspired tiki bar food, and the culinary fusion that Los Angeles has become so well known for.

The hot dog inside is made from SPAM®️ Classic and shrimp, both of which lend well to the tropical flavors the “SPAMlot” is topped with. These include banana ketchup, a sweet Maui onion kimchi relish, Japanese Kewpie mayo, and nori.

Together, these create a mouthwatering combination of flavors that is an absolute home run. The Sultan of Swat himself would definitely be impressed if he tried one of these hot dogs.

LONO Hollywood’s SPAM®️-filled tribute to The Sandlot will be available for the entire month of August as part of SPAM®️ Restaurant Month.
