Merkel and Myrtle visited Chocolate Taperia late on a Sunday afternoon. I am not sure why we have not visited this place before since it is just the sort of place we love to visit. It really hits the sweet spot. It can be found at 5/168 Melbourne Street, North Adelaide just west of Cibo opposite the Old Lion.
Chocolate Taperia has been under new management for the last three months. The dim lighting and plush décor makes it a very comfortable place to dine. It has a good menu of chocolate delights and a display of high quality chocolates available. The table service is attentive and friendly.
Merkel chose and orange flavoured dark Belgian hot chocolate. It came in a tall glass with a handle and saucer. There was a dark chocolate button provided with the drink. It was topped with a brown froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. The cost was six dollars. The Belgian chocolate was creamy and delicious. The orange flavour was weak to start with and more concentrated at the bottom. Merkel and Myrtle were provided complimentary Valentines Day chocolates. This place will be worthy of some return visits.
