During our visit to Universal Studios Orlando last month, we decided to celebrate my Mother's birthday at Emeril's Restaurant right at Universal's City Walk. Emeril's is the restaurant of famous Food Network Chef Emeril Lagasse. He is also famous for always saying "kick it up a notch" and saying "Bam" whenever he cooked on TV. Emeril's speciality is Southern Creole cooking which is a perfect match here in Florida. The City Walk at Universal Studios is a place full of restaurants and shops. It comes alive most especially at night. Right beside Emeril's is Margaritaville and the famous Hard Rock Cafe. When you visit the Universal Studios Orlando, stop by and experience the pulsating night life in this place. It is a one stop place for fun!
For appetizer, we all had the Chef's Daily Gumbo, a soup based with rice and scallians.
Then our main entree was Emeril's famous Apple Cider Glazed Pork Ham chops with southern greens and mascarpone grits.
The service at Emeril's was impecable. The waiters were well dressed in white crisp shirts, black pants and green apron. They operated in military precision, friendly and nothing so stiff in this place. It was a delicious evening with authentic Southern cooking!
For dessert, the Birthday celebrant had cappuccino and White chocolate cherry bread pudding with vanilla ice cream, chambord sauce and chantilly cream.
After all that eating, time to walk around and check out the pulsating night life around City Walk.
We had a delicious and fun evening at Universal Studios.
