Green Eggs and Ham Café reopens at Seuss Landing

in Food, Islands of Adventure, Television

Green eggs and ham, the favorite of Sam-I-Am, has returned to Islands of Adventure. The long-vacant Universal Orlando Resort dining destination recently reopened with a sumptuous selection of servings inspired by the children’s book.

Perhaps inspired by the new Netflix animated series or just due to holiday (and who-liday) crowds the small, ham shaped counter service station once again welcomes guests. Originally a burger and fry spot, the revamped menu now only shows several new, non-burger snacks.

Fans often complained about the shuttered, ham-shaped store, but now, Green Eggs and Ham Café once again serves food and beverage. The new menu features tater-tot treats along with a few other surprises.

Wholiday Celebrations and Netflix series

Of course, the new menu and reopened restaurant could be temporary. Crowds in the whimsical Seuss Landing area of the park swell during the Christmas season. This is due to additional who-liday entertainment.  Guests can enjoy a full musical production of “Grinchmas.” Additionally, citizens of Whoville roam the area. There’s even an opportunity for photographs with the mean green one himself!

Hopefully, however, the return of this long-closed café might be more permanent due to a new Netflix animated series based on the book (which inspired the café). “Green Eggs and Ham” debuted on the streaming service last month.  Featuring voices of Jillian Bell, Adam Devine, Eddie Izzard, and Michael Douglas, the animated series is produced by Ellen DeGeneres and David Dobkin. Season one serves up thirteen 26-minute episodes.
