Toothsome Chocolate Emporium Review

When you walk into the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen at Universal Orlando Resort you walk into magic. From the outside, you see the smoke stacks and its steam punk factory look. As you enter the smell of sweets and the staff welcomes you. The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen is restaurant theming at its best.

The minute Universal Orlando Resort announced the opening of the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen I added it to the top of our list for our next visit to Orlando.

I love theme parks for the attractions but I am a big believer in eating well on vacation and the food is a huge part of what makes a theme park vacation great. When you need a break from Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure Toothsome is a great choice!

From our appetizer of chocolate almond bread with caramel butter to my salmon and vegetables entrée and finishing with a red velvet cupcake milkshake, Toothsome does not disappoint.

The atmosphere is immersive. The food is incredible. The milkshakes…amazing. Toothsome should be on every families “must-see” list when visiting Orlando, Florida.

The Atmosphere and the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium Story

Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast kitchen is themed around the story of Penelope Toothsome and her adventure to find her family. She created the chocolate emporium to share her love of chocolate with the world. Along with her robot friend Jacques they go on a journey to find the best places to share their love of chocolate.

Penelope and Jacques walk around the restaurant stopping to talk with visitors. When we arrived at Toothsome, Jacques was walking around and we got to meet him. My kids were kind of in awe! They didn’t know what to expect and had a really fun time meeting him. Jacques is witty and engaging and such a fun addition to the dining experience.

Penelope and Jacques also stopped by our table when we were eating our milkshakes. They talked to us about the food and of course the milkshakes!  It was a really fun experience for all of us!

Toothsome Chocolate Emporium Review: The Menu

The food was fantastic and not just fantastic for theme park standards, it is fantastic for any restaurant. Not many places make me want to come back for more the minute we leave, but Toothsome is an exception. The food is that good.

Appetizer: Truffle Fries and Warm Chocolate Almond Bread w/ Salted Caramel Butter

Toothsome Chocolate Emporium

I thought both were great but the real winner was the Chocolate Almond Bread. It was warm out of the oven and the butter was sweet but not overly sweet. Everyone at the table liked it. The kids didn’t like the fries as much but it was more the Parmesan on the fries that turned them off. My husband and I liked them.

Drinks: Too Chocolate Stout(Beer)

We decided to try the Too Chocolate Stout based on a recommendation and I am so glad we did! We both like beer but I typically don’t like the darker beers. For this reason, we ordered one to try and figured we could share it. I kind of wish we had ordered two!!

This was not your typical stout beer it was a perfect mix of beer and chocolate flavor. I was surprised by how much I liked it! This beer is created specifically for the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and you can only purchase it at the restaurant.

Main Entrees a the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium

I ordered the Grilled Teriyaki Salmon and it was so nice to add some much-needed vegetables to my meals this week. My husband ordered the Pub It Up burger and loved how unique it was!  He loved the queso on the burger and the crunch from the potato chips.

My kids chose the Waffles and Chicken Fingers. They all enjoyed the food. It appears that Toothsome puts as much effort into their children’s meals as they do into everything else. It is so important when traveling with my family that my kids have quality meals that are tasty and affordable.

Toothsome Chocolate Emporium Review Milkshakes

Let’s be honest the milkshakes are the headliners and for good reason! With over 20 options and a price tag of $12.00 and up Toothsome Chocolate Emporium takes their milkshakes seriously.

If you think the milkshakes are too good to be true you are sadly mistaken. They taste as great as they look! A few of the options on the menu…

  • Peanut Indulgence
  • Red Velvet
  • Salted Dulce de Leche
  • Marshmallow Crisp
  • Heavenly Hazelnut
  • Strawberry Cheesecake
  • Chocolate Banana Brain Freeze
  • Brownie
  • Bacon Brittle
  • Espresso Buzzzz
  • Key Lime Pie
  • Chocolate X5
  • Cinnamon Fantasy

We tried 2 of them…and shared. Honestly the meal was so good and we were so full!! I wish we could have tried more but it gives us another reason to return. We tried the Salted Dulce de Leche and Red Velvet.

We visited Toothsome on another visit and had the opportunity to try the Peanut Indulgence. If you love peanut butter it is a great choice.

Dulce de Leche is salted caramel ice cream, Dulce de Leche, salted pretzels, fresh whipped cream and chocolate cigars. If you order this be sure to dip the pretzels in the caramel and whipped cream. The kids loved that you could eat the chocolate cigars!

Red Velvet is vanilla ice cream, red velvet cupcake, raspberry sauce, rainbow sprinkles, fresh whipped cream, and a cherry. This was perfect not overly sweet but excellent. Not only do they have red velvet cupcake on top but they have blended bits of cupcake in the milkshake.
