The Chocolate Factory
Back to the previous post - so my friend and I went to the Chocolate Factory (or Laurent Bernard?) at Robertson Walk for the much-touted Chocolate Tart - everyone has been talking about it and I just had to try it for myself to see (and taste) what the hype was about.
And it was oh-so-delicious. It was very good. Probably ranks as one of the best chocolate fixes in town. The chocolate was really quite divine; there were two layers, the chocolate layer on the top (darker in colour) which had a very pleasant chocolate flavour to it and was very umptiously rich, balanced with a lighter-in-colour hazelnut layer - and when u eat it with the base, which was very crisp and provided a great contrast to the richness of the chocolate, you get a nice balance of flavours - rich chocolate, with a tinge of hazelnut, balanced by pastry. nice.
