A chocolate factory moment for all the chocoholics and sugar addicts!
Journey: We heard a lot about the place and decided that it was finally time we check it out for ourselves.
Ratings: 7 Golden Nuggets
Ambiance: The place is nicely tucked into a corner near Reel Cinemas, in Dubai Mall. It has this cost atmosphere with dim lighting and a decor that we would love to have in our room. Being Ramadan there was no music playing. The seating includes typical chairs or sofas which we picked that were super comfy and could sit there for ages. There was another level which didn’t seem to be open so couldn’t venture out there and see for what it was.
Golden Treasure: Chocolate Soufflé
1. Chocolate Soufflé [AED 39]: A chocolate cake that oozes out the gooey chocolate served with a bowl of vanilla ice-cream. The cake was baked well, the texture was moist and not burnt as in some other places. There is a chocolate goo once you dig up the portion in the middle tastes like heaven with a dollop of ice-cream with it. The serving is good enough for two people to share.
2. Aztec Hot Chocolate [AED 28]: The smell of the hot chocolate was divine and created high expectations for us but unfortunately this was a complete no for us. It is sublimely blended with hot chilli and served the Aztec way. This sounded like a unique blend and therefore our choice for trying it out since we like spicy food. The drink is only good when you sip it but the aftertaste is very peculiar and not in a good way. It tasted like a thorough blend of various spices made use of in a home remedy. It was way too spicy even for the spice lovers. This is probably meant for those of you with strong hearts, who like hot spicy drinks and don’t mind taking a risk with your beverages. The portion is quite enormous which could be easily shared between three to four people.
3. Jewel Box [AED 49]: A gorgeous golden box that was elegantly decorated with a mini red bow. It comes along with hot chocolate sauce that melts the magnificent box filled with golden brownies, maltesers, wafer crumbs and ice-cream. This felt way too sweet but did the job of saving us from the aftertaste of the hot chocolate. The brownies were just okay, the ice-cream didn’t taste the same as served with the soufflé so we are assuming the ice-cream served with the jewel box is of a different flavor and probably not vanilla. The chocolate sauce felt like a combination of milk chocolate and condensed milk. Overall a way too sweet dish for our taste buds. This serving is also easily shared between two to four people.
There was just one server present who was handling the place. He was kind enough to wait for taking our order since we couldn’t decided on which form of chocolate should we go for. The server was attentive and friendly but kind of confused as well.
For the quantity offered the pricing seems to be reasonable.

We will be making another visit soon to try out the chocolate shots and the other desserts.
Is the place scrumptious enough?
