With a range of chocolates, desserts, cakes and drinks to choose from on the menu, there is no chance you won't feel satisfied leaving Chocolab. You name it, and they are bound to have it. Whether it is white chocolate, milk chocolate or dark chocolate, they have it all.
When i was recommended the Choc Burger, i was apprehensive. How do you make a chocolate burger, i was thinking. I was expecting literally a burger coated in chocolate, or chocolate shaped in a burger. Instead, it was 3 layers of chocolate goodness stacked - brioche toast, lava cake and ice cream drizzled with caramel sauce. The brioche toast was chewy and the lava cake had an overload of dark chocolate oozing out when i sank my knife into it. This should be renamed "chocolate overload" in my opinion.
I succumbed to temptation after the Choc Burger and went for the White So' Berry Cake. White chocolate is my favorite so this cake immediately got a thumbs up. With layers of light chocolate sponge cake and raspberry puree that was tangy yet not overly sweet - there was nothing to fault with this cake.
If cakes and desserts isn't your thing, you'll be glad to know Chocolab has a menu of (chocolate) drinks to choose from. The Hot Chocolate Vienna was a tad too bitter for my liking, probably because of the pure cocoa beans used, but for chocolate lovers, you are bound to enjoy a cup of it.
So next time you are in Bangkok, you know where to go for that sweet indulgence. It's not all about going shopping or exploring, sometimes all you need is a cup of coffee (or chocolate in this case) and a quiet afternoon surrounded by the aroma of cocoa.
