The gears are turning on the creation of Universal Orlando's newest culinary concoction - The Toothsome Chocolate Factory & Savory Feast Emporium. The recently announced chocolate wonderland is set to open later this year at Universal CityWalk in Orlando.
The full-service restaurant and dessert depot will be joining a collection of confectionary attractions in Orlando including Chocolate Kingdom and the recently opened Sugar Factory, both on International Drive, making the destination even tastier for visitors with a sweet tooth.
The 19th century-inspired, Steampunk-era chocolate factory will be complete with towering smokestacks, antique brass tanks and piping along with a mix of dark wood and gadgetry. Staff will also be dressed in Steampunk fashion.
The dining menu will offer an all-day brunch including crepes and quiches along with unique takes on classic dishes such as steak, seafood and pasta.
At the heart of this fantasy factory will be over-the-top desserts including a collection of artisan milkshake such as Bacon Brittle, Chocolate x5 and Red Velvet.
