I Ate Everything On Rainforest Cafe's Menu And Barely Made It Out Alive

This is a truly bizarre place to visit at least once. It's taken the Julia Tries Everything crew four years to make it to the quintessential '90s rainforest-themed restaurant Rainforest Cafe. We promise it was worth the wait. With only 23 locations worldwide, it's an endangered species of its own. Luckily we found one just outside NYC at Menlo Park Mall in New Jersey. We've been to several themed restaurants over the years (we'll never forget Margaritaville), but nothing could prepare us for the fully immersive experience that Rainforest Cafe brings. There's rain, fog, thunderstorms, elephants (animatronic), gorillas (also animatronic), and iconic bar stools mimicking safari animals' behinds. Known as part adventure, part restaurant, I can confirm it's a truly wild place to visit at least once. Here are the 10 best things I tried. But first, some top-line questions: What is Rainforest Cafe known for?The restaurant was originally known for having live animals in the dining room. These days, you will no longer have parrots swooping across your plate. Do you get to keep the cups?Depends. For most of the cocktails on the menu, yes, you can take the glass home. How often does the show happen?Our location promised a thunderstorm show every 19 minutes. We've been told you can convince your server to activate the thunderstorm for special occasions if you ask very nicely.
