Going to Conan Show, Need Recs for Universal City --
Hi guys, we've got tickets to go see Conan O'Brien on April 25 at Universal City. We plan to have an early dinner first. We want to stay "up on the hill" for easy access to the venue, instead of going anywhere else (say, Musso and Frank's on Hollywood Blvd). And we haven't eaten anywhere "on the hill" for 3-4 years. So --
-- What's good these days at Universal City? Cafe Sierra buffet at the Hilton looks great, but expensive - is it worth it? Is there anything to speak about at the Sheraton Universal? How about CityWalk - I know it's a tourist trap, but is there anything there that's decent?
Any and all input appreciated! Thanks!
Last week Pink's just opened a new location at the Citywalk. Not sure if that's what you're looking for, but they do have a pretty darn good chili dog.
The buffet at the Universal Hilton is delicious. It was by far my favorite buffet I have eaten at recently. We ate at it for Easter. It was well worth the $50pp!
There also a Chinese restaurant below the food court, across from the movies. It is at the City Wok. I've eaten there twice. Both times were very good. The thai salad, wonton soup, mongolian beef.... all delicious. I mean I'm sure there are better Chinese. However I live nearby and this is the best in the area for price/convenience.
Miceles is also touristy but if you're going to Conan, it will add to the experience. Its a fun place. The only thing that I have eaten there that I have liked is the chopped salad, their bread and baked linguini. I dont think the baked linguini is on the menu but the chef will make it for you. Its just linguini with cheese baked on top.
Hope this helped. Have fun at the show.
