Eating like a local made easy
Experience the authentic Orlando through its food and drink with our curated culinary experience, Flavor by Loews Hotels.
There are thrills around every corner here at Universal Orlando Resort™. One of the biggest? The food scene. Flavor Orlando brings all the best local eats and drinks straight to you here at Loews. We’ve partnered with the most-loved hyper-local culinary and beverage artisans so you can eat like a Floridian. And, yes, you can have it all without ever taking a step off property.
It takes about 1,000 hives and some very busy bees to create what’s known as Orlando’s best local honey. Owner David Webb takes pride in the fact that his product is pure and unfiltered. He knows how to create the deliciously unexpected, too; flavors include Wild Flower, Orange Blossom, Cabbage Palm and Holly. We’ve made the honey a key ingredient in our sauces and dressings here at the hotel. Try the Chicken Yakitori in Islands Dining Room, the Herb Crusted Seabass with Honey Lime Butter Sauce at Jake’s American Bar, and the Asian Chicken Salad at Bula Bar & Grille.
Kissimmee River Mushrooms
You have to see them to believe them. Imagine: mushrooms in truly brilliant colors, from pink to gold to blue. It’s all because this family-owned biz does its growing naturally, without chemicals and pesticides, in Okeechobee, Florida. Their beauty is rivaled only by their taste – so nuanced and complementary of many different types of cuisine. Bonus: these mushrooms also have health benefits, like lowering cholesterol. Admire and savor them in our Islands Dining Room (order the Mongolian Beef and Kung Pao Chicken) or poolside in a Portobello Mushroom Wrap at Bula Bar & Grille.
Crooked Can Brewing Company
Local beer lovers know this brewery for its quality craft brews and laidback vibe. It’s a fixture in the downtown scene, located at Plant Street Market in historic Winter Garden. Here, every batch is overseen by an award-winning brewmaster that uses both traditional and cutting-edge practices. Kick back with a pour (we recommend High Stepper, an American IPA; and Mr. Tractor, a Kolsch) right here at Jake’s American Bar.
