Eversince that dreadful Mediterranean restaurant at The Curve closed down I was hoping that a much better establishment would take its place. When I saw that it has become Theobroma Chocolate Lounge, to be honest I was rather disappointed.
I mean, I wanted another place that serves wholesome, delicious food, preferably with pork but it’s now a place that serves everything chocolate. Well, I do love chocolates, specifically the dark bitter ones but I feel that high quality chocolates are far too valuable and delicious to be made into pralines, toppings, frapps etc. And by that logic, I automatically assumed that Chocolate Lounge would flop and that it sells cheap, disgusting chocolates in nice packaging.
Sorry, I can be that judgmental.
As it turned out, I was WRONG. Thank goodness I had a chocolate craving and thank goodness Chocolate Lounge was the first place I saw.
Theobroma Chocolate Lounge.
I ordered a Belgian bitter chocolate frapp called Ms. Coco.
I was very pleased with Ms. Coco. Normally I can’t finish chocolate/cream based beverage but this one was very refreshing. It retained the lovely dark chocolate bitterness but was surprisingly light. I didn’t leave a drop unfinished.
The bf ordered a cappuccino, which he said was good.
We also shared a chocolate strawberry waffles.
We were torn between chocolate strawberry pancakes or waffles but the staff said we should go with the latter. The strawberries were tart and juicy and went very well with the waffles, vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. Noms.
Well, I’d definitely come back to this place for a quick chocolate fix. They’ve got quite an extensive chocolate-everything menu, including the staple fondue. I won’t say the stuff is mind-blowing but the price is decent and you won’t feel like you’re chugging down confectionery chocolate goo. The nice atmosphere is a plus too.
