Attention, all chocolate lovers: Dreams do come true! Anyone who has seen Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory has probably dreamed of being able to eat their way through a candy fantasyland. Well, Universal CityWalk's The Toothsome Chocolate Factory & Savory Feast Emporium is set to open later this year. And it's going to get you as close to the legendary chocolate factory as you'll ever get. 

The restaurant will offer new takes on savory standards like burgers, fries and pasta, but its chocolaty dessert options are what really sound delicious. Oh, and did we mention that the restaurant is also steampunk-inspired? So don your finest top hat and your most be-buckled waistcoat, and don't forget to bring your sweet tooth — The Toothsome Chocolate Factory & Savory Feast Emporium is waiting for you. And you won't believe what it looks like...
