My family and I really had an amazing time at Super Nintendo World (full blog coming soon). We stopped in for lunch at Toadstool 🍄 Cafe. Pro Tip if you want to dine at Toadstool Cafe be sure do the early entry of Super Nintendo World and head straight to the cafe to book your reservations. We arrived for early entry and my husband headed straight to the cafe ahead of us to book our reservations. Within 20 minutes it was completely booked for the entire day! You will definitely want to dine here! I promise you won’t be disappointed.
The Toad House is a Toadstool Cafe. Really cool visual look of the cafe. Serving up tasty dishes that are crafted by Chef Toad with a watchful and playful scenery of the Mushroom Kingdom through the windows. The menu that Chef Toad created also offers gluten-free and vegetarian options.
The design of the cafe exterior is creative, cool, and the inside is automated and has some automated effects. The decor whisk you away to a real life Mushroom Kingdom.
As we entered the cafe, there were digital menus around to begin perusing the menu. The wait from that point was about 1o minutes because you order at the counter.
We were handed menus as we got closer to the counter but the menus were taken back from us before leaving the waiting area which I think made the ordering process slower. Simply because some people don’t remember the names of what they wanted to order. Our family is use to dining out so we had our orders written down in our phones.
Once we ordered we were directed to the hostesses and given a number for the table. The hostess seated us and asked us if we needed anything else.
Here is what we tried:
Super Star Lemon Squash
This drink was made with a honey lemon soda with mango stars and assorted tropical bobas. Cute idea. The drink was delicious. Served in a cute cup.
Toadstool Cheesy Garlic Knots
These Mini-shaped knots were brushed with garlic butter and topped with parmesan cheese. Finished with fresh parsley. Served with a side of marinara sauce. Creative idea, but this was meant to be appetizer but arrived with the meal. The bread was cold and wasn’t good at all. If you won’t serve it hot don’t offer it. Because it taste like cardboard cold. A waste of our money because no one ate it.
This dish consisted of a four-hour-braised short rib sits goat cheese polenta and sautéed mushrooms. Around it was a pool of red wine reduction and the dish was dotted with large circles of crème fraîche. Topped with a puff pastry piece with Toad. The idea of this dish was to replicate Chef Toad’s red-and-white head. So cute.
The short rib was tender. The goat cheese polenta was creamy and delicious. The flavors all balanced well together.
Bowser’s Fireball challenge
This dish consisted of 1 lb meatball, topped with mozzarella cheese. Served with mushroom marinara sauce, Bowser’s Puff Pastry. Finished with parsley and a side of hot sauce. Topped with a Bowser flag. Served in a Bowser themed bowl. The bowl is a keepsake. But last week was the last week that the bowl was free. Now you have to pay for the bowl if you want to keep it. It’s a really nice bowl. Omg! This dish was superb. The meatball was well seasoned and spicy. The puff pastry was flaky & delicious. The sauce was balanced and yummy. A well done dish.
Mario Mini Burger Adventure Set
Our son ordered this and it was cute. He loved it. His order consisted of cheeseburger topped with a Mario. Served with french fries, corn on the cobb with broccoli topped with a Mario flagpole and a gold cookie. Adorable and he said it was delicious.
Fire Flower Spaghetti and Meatball
A really visually cute dish. This dish consisted of spaghetti with mushroom marinara sauces, meatballs, a fire lower parmesan crisp. Finished with shaved parmesan and chopped parsley. Superb spaghetti and meatballs dish. Really yummy and spicy goodness. My teen loved this dish.
Overall we really enjoyed our dining experience. The service was ok. It could have been better. The food was incredible and the menu was well thought out. Each dish was created with great thought and carried out well. Visually presented well. Everything except the cheesy knots we loved. The dishes were well seasoned which really surprised me.
A really fun dining experience that our kids really enjoyed. It was pricey but well worth the experience. The food definitely lived up to the hype.
