East Terrace Continental, Italian
Merkel returned to ETC to sample be beverage of the month for the last month, "The Italian mint hot chocolate". The place was bustling on a Saturday morning with plenty of customers but also plenty of friendly waiting staff. The hot chocolate was served in a small glass with a napkin wrapped around it to preserve the fingertips. There was no froth or cream. The hot chocolate was thick and gluggy in true Italian hot chocolate style. The mint flavour was strong but worked well the thick chocolaty drink. It was great to find another venue that does the thick Italian Hot Chocolate and the mint flavour is an interesting variation.
