FOOD REVIEW: The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen at Universal Orlando
Hey friends! As many of you may know from some of my previous blog posts, Universal Studios Orlando is one of my favorite places to go, new restaurants being another favorite. So, combine the two and I’m in heaven.
But in all seriousness, here’s another food review. I know it’s been a while for a food review, but I’m back with the good stuff. So, I actually went to this restaurant in December, but didn’t get a chance to write about it. In December, my parents and I went to Universal Studios Orlando. Overtime we would go there, after The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen first opened, I would ask if we could go there to either eat dinner or lunch or to get one of their famous milkshakes. Finally, we decided to eat lunch there.
When you walk in, it’s extremely whimsical, with a Willy Wonka-esque theme to it, and various candies in the front part, which acts as a candy shoppe. Then there is the milkshake shoppe section where you can order a whimsical milkshake, which I, unfortunately, did not do. But all of this is only on the first floor of the restaurant.
After waiting for a little bit, we were finally seated in an area on the second floor. The waiters and waitresses wear costumes and there is a woman who comes around and meets with the restaurant guests to take pictures. Her name is Professor Doctor Penelope Tibeaux-Tinker Toothsome and she is the “owner” of the chocolate emporium. In the menu, her story is told. I did not get to meet the woman portraying her character, but that did not stop our fun.
As an appetizer, we ordered their most famous one, their Warm Chocolate Almond Bread. I was a little bit skeptical of it at first until I tasted it. I thought that it would be weird to combine chocolate and bread and I am not a huge fan of almonds. However, the bread was pretty good, except for the fact that it was not warm. I think that if a restaurant is going to advertise something as “warm,” it should definitely come to the table warm.
My parents had previously come to the restaurant before and they knew that the portion sizes of their meals were very large. So, my mom and I decided to share something instead of getting our own separate meals. My dad ordered the Blue Plate Burger and my mom and I ordered the Patty Melt. The Patty Melt consists of Challah, half-pound housemade fresh hamburger patty, sunny-side up egg, grilled pork belly, cheddar cheese, lyonnaise potatoes. It was so big, so good, and plenty of food for two people to share.
The combination of the egg, hamburger, pork belly, and the cheese was perfect. It definitely made up for the bread not being warm.
I can’t wait to go back to the emporium to try one of their iconic milkshakes. But for now, this experience there will have to hold me over. So what’s your favorite place to eat at Universal Studios Orlando?
