Urban Pantry coming to Universal Orlando’s new Aventura Hotel
Universal Orlando announced a new eatery coming to the new Aventura Hotel called Urban Pantry will be the “modern food hall” of the new resort and will feature diverse flavors, fresh ingredients and globally inspired dishes from such locations as San Francisco and London.
Here are the “stations” Universal announced that guests will be able to enjoy:
This area will feature entrees like cuts of lamb and prime rib, plus chicken, salmon and paella. You can pair these dishes with sides like quinoa, couscous, roasted marble potatoes, spinach and seasonal veggies
Here, guests will be able to watch chefs create mouthwatering pizzas topped with gourmet ingredients like prosciutto and smoked salmon. These are baked in high-temperature stone ovens with seating designed to let you watch your pie in the making. For dessert, indulge in a gelato sandwich, a pressed sweet bread bun filled with hazelnut chocolate and gelato.
The Wok Station lets you customize a hearty, healthy bowl of fresh ingredients. Choose stir fry or ramen-style, then pick your protein like steak, chicken, shrimp or tofu and top it off with your choice of vegetables. This station will also offer a selection of sushi and appetizers like tuna poke, crab spring rolls and dumplings.
The Burger Station serves delicious handhelds with your choice of grass-fed beef, Black Angus beef, turkey burger or vegetarian burger garnished with an assortment of cheeses and toppings like aged Gouda, bacon and fig jam, and roasted mushrooms. If you’re craving seafood, dive into the Florida Grouper sandwich. Don’t forget to add a pickle, French fries and savory dipping sauces.
Universal also mentions that almost everything at Urban Pantry will be made from scratch, making each item on the menu that much more delicious. There will also be accommodations available for those with special dietary needs.
Each station will also feature specialty drinks, such as Asian beer and sake at the Wok Station.
