Hot chocolate is no doubt a comforting, pick-me-up beverage that warms your belly and pleases your senses. Imagine savouring a cup on a rainy day or perhaps at the comfort of a cosy cafe. For chocolate lovers out there, here are the 6 best places to enjoy hot chocolate in Klang Valley.
1) Hot Shots Coffee & Tea @ Solaris Dutamas
Their freshly-roasted coffee selections are well-known, but if it’s hot chocolate you’re looking for, you won’t be disappointed here either. Their bestselling “Seriously Rich Hot Chocolate” beverage is… well, seriously rich. Not to mention that it tastes great with marshmallows. The deliciously thick hot chocolate is also complemented well with fresh cut strawberries and a boudoir biscuit.
2) Art Cacao @ Le Meridien KL
Chocolate lovers, rejoice! Here is the place where your dream for all things chocolate comes true. Chocolate milkshakes, cookies, eclairs — you name it, Art Cacao has them aplenty under one roof. Their hot chocolate is particularly a must-try: a signature beverage made of 70% high-quality bittersweet liquid chocolate from Hong Kong-based artisan chocolatier, Vero. If that’s not enough, they also serve hot chocolate with peanut butter & vanilla, caramel & vanilla or mint.
3) The Dark Gallery @ MyTown Shopping Centre
True to its name, The Dark Gallery is a place where you get to indulge in some of the world’s finest single-origin dark chocolates sourced from countries like Ecuador, Madagascar and Venezuela. They offer a diverse range of chocolate-based products ranging from artisanal ice creams to cakes and cookies. Their Signature Hot Chocolate also comes highly recommended — a rich chocolate-y beverage made from melted Valrhona chocolate couverture and topped with chocolate shavings. Then, there’s their Single Origin Platter which features three single-origin hot chocolates served in shot glasses. This is where you get to taste different acidity and bitterness of single-origin dark chocolates from three different countries (Madagascar, Dominican Republic and Venezuela).
4) 43 Coffee @ TTDI
With a name like that, you might be thinking coffee is their only and obvious speciality. But it turns out their hot chocolate selections are no slouch either. In fact, you can even choose four different blends sourced from Indonesia including Valley Blend, Pulau Sapi, Bali Samsaman and Sulawesi Ranoha. Each blend has its own distinctive taste of richness, offering you the chance to taste a cup of hot chocolate like no other.
5) Fat Spoon Cafe @ Damansara Utama
Fat Spoon Cafe is known for their extensive menu selections such as Spicy Beef Macaroni Soup, Ulam Fried Rice and the beefy “Moo Moo Rice Bowl”. But their main course isn’t the only highlight here. If you have room for more, do try their signature “Fat Hot Chocolate” — a robust, yet deliciously creamy hot chocolate for that perfect sweet ending.
6) Salon Du Chocolat @ Various Locations
The name of the place says it all. It’s a haven for everything that spells “chocolate”. Salon Du Chocolat is largely known for their signature crepes. But don’t forget about their hot chocolate selections as well, with a diverse range ranging from dark to white chocolate. You can locate Salon Du Chocolat around KL and PJ including Publika Shopping Gallery, Quill City Mall and 1 Utama.
