Hidden away inside the intriguing Royal Arcade, following the chocolate fumes down a little passageway and down a few stairs into the Hub Arcade, you find yourself at a little chocolate shop by the name of Chokolait. I had been wanting to try their signature Chokolait Pavlova that everyone has been raving about for a while now, so MerlinFan and I came here on a dreary autumn afternoon in search for a sweet treat.
The shop was smaller than I had imagined - you can probably find a table inside if you're lucky. I sat outside in the middle of a narrow corridor, so unfortunately I couldn't comment much on the ambiance of the interior.
No trip to a chocolate salon would be the same without trying the hot chocolate, so I had myself a mocha hot (milk) chocolate. The mocha hot chocolate was like a full meal in itself. Seriously rich and sweet, with layers of creamy milk chocolate and undertones of coffee. It was very thick, almost like chocolate soup - although I enjoyed it, the sweetness and thickness may not be for everyone.
|Mocha hot chocolate $7|
|Chokolait pavlova $9.95|
|Chokolait mud cake $9.50|
