One of the many examples of improved food quality and value at Universal Orlando is Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen. This location opened in 2016 and has quickly become a family favorite (it is clearly my spouse’s favorite).
This is one of the more difficult restaurants in CityWalk to get a reservation for which may indicate other people love of this place too.
Now you may have seen the large, themed shakes served here. They are good but I suggest a sundae over the shakes. But sweets is not all this location has to offer.
Many theme park visitors are surprised to learn that this place has good food items also.
For a theme park resort place, the menu is large. If you are familiar with The Cheesecake Factory, then think that size menu. People are also surprised to learn that the brunch menu is served all day every day.
After a night of experiencing Halloween Horror Nights, my spouse wanted to go enjoy lunch at Toothsome. We did have to wait one hour for a table during a weekend afternoon, but we were seated upstairs. Our server was polite and professional.
My spouse decided to order off the brunch menu. She selected the Patty Melt French toast. This entrée costs $13.95.
The entrée consists of challah bread, a half-pound house made beef patty, an egg sunny side up, grilled pork belly, and cheddar cheese. This also comes with a side of Lyonnaise potatoes. There was some very light cinnamon made with the bread. This cinnamon could not be tasted unless one chooses to eat a piece of the toast without any other portion of the entrée.
This one is clearly designed to be a savory dish. If you were ordering this to cover it in syrup, then I would suggest another entrée. Syrup does not add much to this entrée.
Though the proteins may seem overwhelming in this dish, they balance very well with the bread, cheese, and egg. The pork belly was juicy and a great addition to the dish.
The Patty Melt French Toast is a filling choice and a great option for the price point.
This entrée is proof that this steampunk inspired chocolate themed eatery can make savory taste just as good. Something to consider during your next trip to Universal CityWalk.
