This is a blog about drinking chocolate and follows the life of Merkel Marmaduke through the cafes of Adelaide, SA and elsewhere, while he searches for the ultimate hot chocolate. Check this blog out for hot chocolate reviews, hot chocolate news and a whole lot of nonsense about finding a good hot chocolate. This blog can be accessed from the ChocAdelaide Android app.
Merkel and Myrtle atttended the South Australian Scabble championships over the weekend. They missed out on the prizes but they made friends with many fine scrabblers and had the opportunity to try new hot chocolate venues over lunch.
The Annex Café is small Café at 3 Waterloo Street, Glenelg, just off Jetty Road. It has seating inside and outside and is venue for live music and poetry reading. It is not to be confused with the Californian chat room on the internet but it does have a web presence on facebook.
The hot chocolate came in a big red mug with a froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. The flavour was milk chocolate and not rich enough for Merkel's taste. The cost was $3.70.
