Let me ask you one thing?

Have you ever had a dark or white hot chocolate?

But have you ever had a ‘Quite dark’ or ‘Moderately dark’ or ‘Completely dark’ hot chocolate?

Or an Orange hot chocolate… or a ginger one, vanilla one, chilli one, vanilla one, caramel one? Yes I could go on…

Not to mention the amazing-looking cakes and treats that would probably be my calorific intake for the day.

AND… it’s a restaurant, posh but cute and fancy, that everything on the menu includes chocolate. Now this isn’t just a cakey-chocolatey menu, I mean BBQ Chicken Quesidilla – Chicken smothered in a smokey CHOCOLATE sauce and similar! Can you imagine?

Personally this sounds disgusting, but I haven’t tried anything savoury on the menu (I had a shockingly good moderately dark hot chocolate, which has become one of my favourite tastes in the world, even as not a big big dark chocolate eater!) and my first impressions of the cafe/shop/restaurant and those working there, gives me a good impression that these chefs know what they’re doing and that the chocolate involved in the savoury meals, isn’t much chocolate or is a special taste that really complements the food.

Having said that I haven’t yet tried the food 

But I can safely say I’m most definitely going to return because now I’ve had that taste, I can’t be kept too far away!!

Anyone else ever visited?

      It really is, especially if you're a chocolate lover like me!

    I love chocolate, and the different sorts of hot chocolate they offer here sounds amazing (though I feel like it would be so hard to choose what kind you want)!! However I don't know about the food… it's interesting, sure, haha, but it's hard to imagine that chicken with chocolate would be a good mix! xd Oh well, maybe something I'll have to try! ;)Filippa ⎮ http://alwaysadot.blogspot.com

      I totally agree! I went with a few friends and we all had to get a different one so we could each try a bit! Yes the food does sound a bit odd doesn't it! Haha.

    I think this is actually a brilliant idea. I have never ever heard of a place that actually offers a variety of hot chocolates! I bet an Andes mint flavor would be really good. Or cookies and cream. Or smores. Excellent post! My tea is feeling a little plain compared to all of these different hot chocolate varieties you've mentioned, ha ha!-AlexA Northern Light
