It was a chance encounter, this shop. rif and I were walking along Telawi street yesterday when we (more like he did) spotted this brightly lit shop along Jalan Telawi 3 — Salon Du Chocolat. That boy spots chocolate shops better than he spots my new haircut or new outfit. WTF right?!
Anyway, curiosity got the better of us and we walked in to see what type of chocolates they were selling. Turns out, they were Turkish chocolates; all types of flavours, sizes, ingredients and coloured packaging. The owner was a very pleasant man who offered some sample chocolates for us to try. I especially liked the dark chocolate peppermint and a candy which I thought was baklava.
The chocolates were priced by grams (RM23 per 100gms) and they also do chocolate gift hampers and gift boxes. Greed got the better of us and we started piling our basket with all sorts of chocolates — homemade dark chocolate truffle, pralines, dark chocolate no sugar, milk chocolate with hazelnut, dark chocolate with peppermint and more.
According to the owner, the chocolates have a shell life of 3 months as no preservatives are added. While paying for our loot, I spotted some chocolate Santa Claus behind the counter. So cute right?
