Review: Toothsome Tuna Melt Madame


The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen does present many challenges. The first challenge these days involves getting a table during a busy dining time. Any conversation about Toothsome should involve mentioning that reservations become more challenging closer you get to the desired dining date. Another challenge involves sticking to any dietary plan when experiencing meals and desserts here. Toothsome offers options for any diet though. These menu choices may demand some research since the Toothsome menu can seem overwhelming.

For today’s food review, the dietary desire involves wanting meat consumption while striving for a pescatarian meal plan. Since Toothsome offers many tasty beef, chicken, and pork savory options, you might think your options are very limited. During a recent visit to Toothsome, Tom, of Park Rush Podcast, enjoyed a Toothsome meal with me. He ordered the “Tuna Melt Madame.”

This tuna melt fails to resemble your standard tuna melt. The presentation reminds me more of a French toast format though. Clearly, this item function as a savory menu item opposed to most French toast entrées. The menu description tells diners to expect many flavors in this tuna melt. ON top of the Challah bread, guests get to enjoy red onion, cucumber, spinach, Gruyere cheese, tomato, and of course tuna. This tuna melt cost $13.95. You may add a fried egg on top for an additional $1. Fries or kettle chips come as a side also.

So, what do guests think of this tuna-based entrée? Speaking of tuna, the portion size rates high for an entrée of this price point. The seasoning of the tuna works well without being overpowering. The rest of the ingredients balance nicely in this tuna melt. The fried egg on top is well worth the extra $1.

The only complaint I have heard about this entrée involves the desire for the bread to be more toasted. I doubt that would work well with this type of bread. Still, I want to mention one criticism from Tom’s experience. The fries tasted average for a table service dining location. That disappointed me since examining my other reviews of Toothsome, the fries generally taste above average.

However, if you are looking for a lighter meal at Toothsome, this tuna melt provides flavor and a lighter pescatarian option. Of course, when you eat a lighter entrée, you have more room for dessert at Toothsome.

As always, eat like you mean it!
