I have always wanted to try this place because it is the smallest coffee shop in Hong Kong, but since I do not drink coffee there was nothing for me to try until I read the recent reviews about chocolate!
The shop is about the width of a bicycle.
The sitting area is so small that only one person can go in and if someone wants to get out or get in, you have to come out to let the other person do so.
Although the place is tiny, it is heavily decorated with bric a brac and postcards.
This place has a lot of publicity because of its size but it is strange that there are not many reviews on it.
Thick hot chocolate:
I loved it because it was so thick you have to spoon it like a dessert.
To be honest it tasted like chocolate flavoured English custard and there was no sour aftertaste which was amazing.
Definitely a good choice for a cold winters day and if your feeling peckish for dessert.
Grapefruit soda (crodino):
This soda was unique and there is nothing that tastes quite like this.
The owners flew them here from Italy.
They said it was grapefruit soda which looked like Irn bru from its coppery orange colour.
The taste was sweet at first and then came an ultra bitter tone, which tastes exactly like grapefruit peel!
According to Wiki Crodino is a non-alcoholic bitter aperitif, produced since 1964. It is an orange colored drink made of herbal extracts and sugar, and it is sold in 6 oz bottles primarily consumed in Italy and other European countries.
hot chocolate with ginger:
This was a little disappointing because I was expecting it to be thick just like the chocolate drink above.
The ginger was nice and strong but there was a slight sour aftertaste.
It also had a milkier taste and a powdery chocolate texture in the drink.
I can't wait to come back for the thick chocolate again.
