Confisco Grille inside of Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure has a new globally-inspired menu courtesy of the park’s new Executive Chef, Jason Glus.
Located at the Port of Entry, Confisco Grille first opened in 1999 with the park. It’s about time for a menu refresh.
Chef Glus is infusing a mixture of global cuisines from Asia, Turkey, Greece, Russia, Poland and more into the reimagined menu.
Some of the new menu items include:
- Pork Belly Banh-Mi Sandwich: Roasted pork belly, pickled carrots, daikon radish and cucumber topped with a chile aioli on a French baguette
- Chilled Tuna Noodle Bowl: Sesame seared yellowfin tuna, soba noodles, green onion, avocado, edamame, cucumber and a wasabi-ponzu dressing
- Grilled Lamb Meatballs: Grilled spiced lamb meatballs with tzatziki sauce, tomato-cucumber relish, feta cheese and mint chimichurri
- Sweet and Sour Sticky Ribs: Philippine-inspired smoked pork ribs tossed in a sweet and sour sauce, served over goat cheese polenta and topped with toasted sesame seeds
- Chicken Curry Chakra: Caribbean chicken curry, carrots, onions, peppers, raisins and coconut jasmine rice
I’m definitely looking forward to trying these new items the next time I’m at IOA. It’ll be a nice change from burgers and fries.
The restaurant is open from 11am until park close. For more information, visit UniversalOrlando.com.
