The busiest week of “Spring Breaks” finally comes to an end with this episode of “Top 3”. The Mardi Gras festivities continue for another month. So we continue to have great Mardi Gras dishes to explore. At just three of them per week, we’ll only cover the best or most unique ones.
This week, we start with a small item located in the food truck in the “New Orleans” area of Mardi Gras. This item is from the same food truck as the arepas. You can get yucca fries here. Yucca fries are $3.99 before discounts. These yucca fries offer reasonable flavor. However, the chimichurri sauce that accompanies these fries makes all the difference. Some guests have expressed issues with the small portion sizes. Still, the sauce plays with this menu item.
The Mardi Gras Brownie
Our next two suggestions for this week fall into the realm of sweet treats. Mardi Gras Brownie makes our list this week. Like some other treats, this one sometimes goes on sale with a “buy one get one free” promotion. You can also find this treat at Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen. Otherwise, the brownie is $10. That may seem high. However, this brownie comes in different varieties. The photo shows the “mask” version. These brownies consist of several varieties of chocolate. The brownie is very rich. Like some other Mardi Gras treats, the portion size might not slow you down, but the sugar might.
Finally for this week we have reached Mardi Gras Petit Cake. The “Petit Cake” has become a traditional seasonal dessert at Universal Orlando. Some Universal Orlando veterans look forward to this treat at every seasonal event. They speak of consistent overall quality. The softness of the cake adds to the pleasure. Although this year’s version consists of more than the average amount of food coloring, the flavor remains solid. Customer reports consistently indicate that this year’s release meets previous expectations and standards.
Once again, thank you for taking part in this “Top 3” culinary journey. I look forward to seeing you again next week to find out the three things you should eat at Universal Orlando.
As always, eat your way!
