I went quite off chocolate for Easter. I know, what terrible timing. There was chocolate everywhere and for some reason I didn't feel like eating it. Luckily I have my mojo back which meant I could really enjoy a visit to Koko Black for a catch up with a friend.
We were lucky enough to score the comfy couches (my only complaint with Koko Black is that due to its size there are very limited couches) and settled in for a great catch up. I love that about Koko Black, you rarely feel rushed by the staff, even after you have finished your delicious treats, they continue to refill your water glass and make you feel welcome. It is only if there is a line of people glaring at you to move that you really feel you must leave.
Diabetics and those on a diet, look away now because I chose the chocolate cake plate and while I offered it to the boys to taste, I ate pretty much all of it.
A tiny intense chocolate cake, a swirl of velvety chocolate mousse and two shortbreads garnished with a swoosh of chocolate emblazoned with nuts. The plate looks small, but believe me, it is plenty! Everything was delicious, the mousse was particularly delicious when piled on the shortbread - its silky texture contrasting with the crisp biscuit.
Worried that I wasn't ingesting quite enough calories in one go, I washed it down with a hazelnut hot chocolate. We sat, talked and ate. It was a perfect way to spend an afternoon
