Theobroma Chocolate Lounge, 1 Utama

Shum and I were craving hot chocolate last week, so we made our way to Theobroma Chocolate Lounge in 1 Utama to get our fix. On a weekday lunch, it was pretty empty; with only 2 tables occupied. We placed our orders and sat in a quiet, cosy corner. The place is stylish and comfy, with plush leather chairs and dark wood flooring. We both ordered the Ms Coco (belgian dark chocolate) in a mug and warmer. Topped with rich, Belgian chocolate shavings, each sip was rich, smooth and comforting. Since it was dark chocolate, we didn’t find it cloying. The melted chocolate on the rim of the mug is Theobroma’s signature finish. The warmer keeps the drink warm, which is great as the hot chocolate won’t taste as good when it gets cold. It also made me drink slower, so every sip was fully enjoyed!

*The candle flame kept going out, so I asked for a lighter and lit it up whenever it goes out.

Ambiance: 7.5/10
Price: 6.5/10
Taste: 6.5/10 (halal)
Verdict: I found the hot chocolate decent, and wouldn’t mind a revisit.

    I passed by many times but it was not tea or snack time. The warmer really good. Yes it will slow down the intake to a sip at a time which is a good thing.

    worldwindows – Yeap, then can sit longer and relax! =P

    SimpleGirl – Errr…must limit the intake lar.

    Bangsar-bAbE,

    For comparison, please try the hot chocolate at Godiva Cafe (Pavillion), Chocz (KLCC), & Schokolart (Solaris Mont Kiara).

    All in the interest of research, mind you.

    Chocolate.. I’m a die hard fan ler.. Why Penang don’t have such chocolate lounge one? In fact I just had 3 pieces of dark chocolate ferrero rocher few minutes ago…

  11. ling239

    tot u went for the promo set…
    but that is only available on odd hours on weekday ~ :(

  12. Sapuche

    Ah, I’m sitting at home right now with a cup of coffee, wishing I could have a piece (okay, an entire tray) of the black and white chocolate cheesecake. Love the concept of a lounge, too! Is there only one or is it a chain? Can you convince the owner to open one in Hawaii? You seriously live in food paradise… :)

  13. Bangsar-bAbE

    Sapuche – If I’m not mistaken, there are 3 branches – 1 Utama, Pavilion KL and Bangsar Village.

    Hahaha…I could try, but no guarantees! =P

    ling239 – Got promo set?? That I didn’t know… *_*

    allie – Wah…die hard fan ar? Then you have to come to KL and try these chocolates!

    I haven’t tried them, but they sure look delish! ;)
