From Breakfast to Brunch @ Schokolart, Solaris Mont KiaraMay 12, 2009 | 3,301 views
The Temptation (RM12) is their signature hot chocolate drink, made with 62% dark Cacao chocolates. Came piping hot in a mug (their own creation; a Hugga-Mugga – you’re supposed to wrap your fingers around the mug, warming your palms as well as your heart). Or so ideally. But I can’t even fit in my fat stubby fingers, rendering holding the mug a stunt in disguise. But the dark chocolate drink was thankfully not too sweet, but rich and creamy, and perfect with any savoury dishes. The accompanying homemade cinnamon marshmallow completed the whole experience. Sans a good book by the fire, but beggars can’t be choosers.
Sweet Child Of Mine (RM15.90) is listed in the section Schokolart Hurricanes, ie Ice-Blended Chocolate Drinks. Consisting of caramel fudge latte ice-blended, topped with the customary whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce, the cold drink lacked oomph in my opinion, slightly diluted and a notch below chocolatey heaven. Should’ve gone for Barry’s recommendation instead, named Soulmate – A wacky take on dark choc + peanut butter blend.
