Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory is every child’s dreamland. And we might just have a chance to experience the fantasy. Well, close enough.
There is this chocolate factory themed restaurant – a new dining concept to be unveiled in Universal Studios Orlando called The Toothsome Chocolate Factory – that is modelled after the one in Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, making our hearts melt as we reminisce the days where all we ever wanted was to win a golden ticket.
While an official date is not set in stone, Universal Studios Orlando has mentioned that their latest dining concept will open later this year in 2016. Here is what you can expect from the upcoming The Toothsome Chocolate Factory that will be situated along the Universal CityWalk.
To clarify, it is of no relation to the popular Roald Dahl novel, but it sure is the closest we can get to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory yet.
The interior boasts a very steampunk-esque vibe with decor and ornaments inspired from the 90′s. The restaurant will mainly feature chocolate-themed desserts in a setting with smoke stacks, funky gadgetry, and you will also be served by staff wearing unique Steampunk fashion.
For savoury options, you can choose from a selection of steaks, seafood and pasta entrees, gourmet burgers, sandwiches, salads, all-day brunch and more.
The decadent drinks menu will feature some exciting milkshakes and some of them are Chocolate x5, Bacon Brittle, Espresso Buzzzz, Red Velvet and Key Lime Pie. They all sound very potent already, especially the Chocolate x5 that will send you straight to chocolate heaven with chocolate spirals, chunks, ice-cream and whipped cream to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Crazy sundaes for you? We have the Salted Caramel Flan, Chocolate Brownie Bark and S’mores.
The great thing about the dining concept is that it is an open kitchen, so be prepared to see all the chocolates being made right before your eyes. Also, chocolate gifts will be available for purchase so you can continue enjoying the chocolate-y goodness back home.
We are totally excited about this groundbreaking concept and this gives us a reason to fly to Orlando now!
