The Choc Pot, Rosebery
Nestled inside Saporium, a former industrial site transforming into foodie paradise, The Choc Pot’s newest store has been creating deliciousness for the past half a year. It has also become the main production, and experimental, kitchen so you might catch Ash working his magic on your inevitable visit.
As crazy as it sounds The Choc Pot is a dessert cafe specialising in desserts with chocolate playing the main character, or sometimes in a cameo role. They also serve coffee, hot chocolates, and a well rounded variety of teas to complement whichever sweet dish you choose to devour. To top it off, The Choc Pot also has a dessert of the month which, you guessed it, changes each month.
The dessert of the month was a C&C (Cookies and Cream) Pudding that my friend, who was already a Choc Pot fangirl, just had to have while I went for S’more Nuts.
C&C Pudding (above) consists of a chocolate pudding with a molten cookies and cream centre, a cream cheese sauce and vanilla whipped cream on top, sprinkled with Oreo crumbs, and served with vanilla bean ice cream on the side. I liked the pudding and cream cheese sauce. This is the dessert for you if you like crushed cookies and cream mixed in stuff. There's a molten cookies and cream core – I prefer my cookies and cream whole.
S’more Nuts (above) is a crispy waffle drizzled with Nutty Butter, melted Belgian chocolate, and topped with roasted hazelnuts and toasted marshmallows that are made in house. The crispiness of the waffle, sauciness of the nutty butter and melted chocolate, crunchiness of the hazelnuts, and chewiness of the marshmallow was a symphony of textures that contrasted and complemented each other. I paired this with the berries and orange black tea which had a wonderful aroma and helped mute the sweetness on my tastebuds.
The desserts we tried were on the sweeter end of the spectrum which will be appealing to many. For others, like me, whose tastebuds are easily overloaded by sweetness choosing an accompanying tea can help mellow the sweetness and add even more flavours for you to enjoy.
With some mouth-watering staples, a large selection of teas, and a different special each month,there are plenty of reasons to make your way to The Choc Pot.
