Everyone knows the star of our food universe here at LEGOLAND® California Resort is our legendary Granny Apple Fries. But what most people don’t know is that we have a plethora of equally delicious and just as worthy of center stage food stars throughout the Resort. It’s my job to give them the glory they deserve! Here in no particular order are the food stars you don’t want to miss on your next visit:
- Chocolate & Churros
Where: The Churro Cart located next to Garden Restaurant
Why: If you’ve ever been to Spain and enjoyed a churro there, you know their version is curlier and somewhat thicker than the usual churros you find at theme park carts. This is the closest I’ve found to the Spanish churro here in the U.S., and LEGOLAND California serves it accompanied with an ooey-gooey thick chocolate dipping sauce that is delicious!
Where: City Park Creperie at LEGO Friends Heartlake City
Why: The City Park Creperie was introduced as part of the super cool LEGO Friends Heartlake City area. A variety of flavors are offered, including powdered sugar, berry, and (my personal favorite) bananas and Nutella! Go ahead, try a crepe (or two) while taking in the Heartlake City fountain and LEGO Friends show.
- Gourmet Mac & Cheese
Where: Ocean Journey Café at SEA LIFE Aquarium
Why: This awesomeness takes the beloved dish to the next level – kids and adults will love it! The fully loaded, thick and creamy gourmet mac and cheese is topped with basil, tomatoes, grilled chicken, and crunchy breadcrumbs. Not a fan of any one of those toppings? No problem, you can customize your order however you want – they even offer gluten free noodles so that nobody misses out on the yumminess!
- Mini Pies
Where: Knight’s Smokehouse Grill
Why: They are really cute to look at, but even more so they are seriously amazing. Blueberry, apple, and pecan are among the choices you will find. As delicious as the barbecue at Knight’s Smokehouse Grill is please do yourself a favor and save room for dessert – after all, it’s just a mini version of a pie so you feel a little less guilty about it in the end.
- Loaded Tater Tots
Where: Wolves’ Den Grill at LEGOLAND Water Park
Why: The Wolves’ Den Grill has put their own
spin on classic chili cheese fries and making them EVEN BETTER. Swap the fries out for crispy tater tots and you have yourself an epic food experience that the whole family will go crazy for. Just one bite of the tasty, savory chili atop a bed of crunchy taters and melty cheese and you’ll be hooked.
