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