Even though I tend to avoid the Harrods area on weekends like the plague, for this one I was willing to make an exception. So I asked a friend to meet me there yesterday.
There was a tiny queue when I got there and since my friend was running a bit late, I asked if I could wait at the bar. I thought it would also be a good spot for taking choco pictures. Watching the skillful chocolate chefs prepare all kinds of chocolate delights, it was getting harder and harder to pick what I wanted. There was a chocolate fondant with actual gold dusting, chocolate filled crepes wrapped up like a little Christmas present, a Godiva Chocolate Sin Cake and bowls of fluid chocolate for a chocolate fondue. It all looked so delicious.
In the end I settled for a brownie and a suckao shot of white chocolate. The shot was like drinking a chocolate bar. I don't think I have ever tasted something so divine. The brownie was not just an ordinary brownie. No, this one was warm and moist in the middle with a slice of gooey Godiva chocolate on top. It came with a generous scoop of silky vanilla pod ice cream, and, I kid you not, golden rice crispies. I told you it wasn't an ordinary brownie.
High on our chocolate rush we bounced down the stairs back into the crowded street. Which all of a sudden was a lot easier to brave. Ah, the power of chocolate.
The Godiva Chocolate Cafe is located in Harrods. Besides indulging in their delicious cakes and chocolate fondues, you can also buy their boxed chocolates, assorted pralines and advent calenders (which are all very moorish) here.
