Universal Studios Hollywood announces the opening of Cocina Mexicana, bringing authentic Mexican cuisine to the theme park.
Park guests who find themselves craving an authentic Mexican meal have a new spot to check out at Universal Plaza. Menu items include beef & chicken tacos, a wet burrito, a taco salad, frozen margaritas, and an array of desserts. You’ll want to try them all!
Wet Chicken Burrito
What can we say about this burrito that isn’t already clear from the photo? It’s irresistible! This one comes loaded with rice, refried beans, queso blanco, guacamole, lime crema, pico de gallo, salsa rojo, and juicy, flavorful chicken.
Everyone is pretty much always in the mood for tacos, and Cocina Mexicana has you covered two ways. There are traditional chicken tinga or ground beef soft tacos topped with delicious queso fresco and lime crema.
If you like your tacos in salad form, there are a perfect blend of lettuce, refried beans, pico de gallo, queso fresco, and avocado ranch for you. Each salad includes a crispy, flour tortilla and comes with your choice of protein: beef, chicken, or vegan chorizo.
Cocina Mexicana, options include a decadent tres leches cake, a very popular Mexican sweet treat, buñuelos (accompanied by a delicious cajeta caramel dipping sauce), or juicy and sweet pineapple drizzled with a flavorful Tajin infused agave nectar.
There’s also Frozen Margaritas for guests ages 21 & up – available in Mango, Strawberry, or Classic Lime! So next time you’re here at the Park, be sure to stop by Universal Plaza on the Upper Lot and visit Cocina Mexicana for lunch or dinner (or both).
This food is so good, we think you’re going to taco ‘bout it for a while! So what are you waiting for? Head on over to CityWalk and have a bite at Cocina Mexicana!
