Fork & Knife Grilled Rib Eye Steak Sandwich from Toothsome Chocolate Emporium


Recently while scrolling through my twitter feed, I saw a review of a very popular Universal Orlando CityWalk restaurant. I clicked the article. I remembered that often sites that create some good content often struggle with other types. The article contained several incorrect facts. All of us make mistakes in the theme park blogging world. I know I have accidentally published blogs with typos and incorrect data, so I understand. However, one of the incorrect sentences was significant and amusing. I showed my spouse the typo. She thought it was funny. We started planning a menu for this new restaurant, Toothless Chocolate Emporium. The humor escalated when she remembered having a reservation at Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen just a few days from the time of writing this article.

Even though I think I would prefer a How To Train Your Dragon themed restaurant, I visited Toothsome recently myself. Maybe, a “Dragon” themed place will pop up in Epic Universe.  Until then, Toothsome in CityWalk offers great desserts and savory meals. Recently, when dining with a group, a rib-eye style steak sandwich was ordered.  This sandwich made my list of menu items to review at Toothsome. The “Fork & Knife Grilled Rib Eye Steak Sandwich” shows once again that Toothsome offers some great food besides desserts. This sandwich cost $18.95 with fries as a side. The menu description tells us this sandwich provides sautéed onions, mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, arugula, herb shallot aioli, and horseradish cheese. The bread surrounding these contents provides flavor as a toasted onion brioche type.

So how was this sandwich? After consulting with other trusted sources and this dining experience, a constant involves the steak portion being well prepared. The flavor of the steak exceeds normal expectations.  The steak could stand on its own if needed. However, the sandwich offers more than simply a well-prepared steak portion for a sandwich. The cheese tastes great when in harmony with the steak. The aioli provides some balance with this sandwich.

Like other Universal Orlando entrée, this one brings a good onion flavor. However, the flavor quantity exceeds most guest preferences. As the title of this sandwich implies, the mess factor ranks high. One would have difficulty eating this without several items falling out of the brioche bun.

Though the price point goes a few dollars higher than some other sandwiches on the menu, this menu item provides a good option for a slightly different type of sandwich. The quality exists with this entrée. Also, this hearty sandwich might slow you down some for that dessert. Save room! Whether you call it Toothless or Toothsome, enjoy your meal.

As always, eat like you mean it!
