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 returned to Pinocchio recently for an evening meal after visiting last year before the official opening. The restaurant is now looking well established at its Unley Road location. It has a short menu of expensive but delicious meals and good table service.
The hot chocolate came in a cream ceramic small Aja tea cup, while the coffees are served in a white ceramic LaVazza coffee cup. The Aja logo is in the centre of the saucer while the LaVazza logo is in outised drinker-facing position. The hot chocolate was topped with hardly any froth at all and a sprinkle of very dark chocolate powder. The consistency was thin rather than creamy but the flavour dark and chocolaty. The cost was $3.50.
