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.
