The Edinburgh Hotel, Vienna Hot Chocolate

Merkel returned to Edinburgh Hotel (aka The Ed) recently. This is not to be confused with the Edinburgh Castle (aka The Ed Castle) which is currently an Adelaide Fringe venue in the CBD of Adelaide. The Edinburgh is tucked away in High Street Mitcham.

Merkel ordered the Vienna hot chocolate after trying both the standard hot chocolate and the iced chocolate on previous visits. The hot chocolate was served in a tall stemmed glass with a handle. It was topped with a good looking swirl of whipped cream and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. It was served on a saucer with a pink and white marshmallow. A Vienna hot chocolate needs to be reasonably rich and chocolaty to counteract the bland cream on top. This one did not quite make the grade. It cost $4.00.
