Haven’t posted much lately because I’ve been busy with work and haven’t got the time to go on food trips. (sad face) but the other week I caught up with one of my mates from Uni and we went to Chocolate Boutique in Parnell. They have so many desserts to choose from it took me ages to decide on which one to get. In the end, I decided to get the raspberry chocolate tart and for my drink, I got the jaffa spider.
Some of you may be thinking “what the hell is a jaffa spider?” well “spider” is a drink that consists of ice cream and soda while “jaffa” is a flavour that is chocolate mixed with orange. So this jaffa spider is basically chocolate ice cream with fanta (orange flavoured soda). I love anything jaffa flavoured so I loved this drink. If you haven’t tried mixing chocolate and orange before but you’re curious about how it would taste like, this is definitely the perfect drink to try because you get to mix the drink yourself so you can adjust the drink according to your liking.
This is the raspberry chocolate tart. I was disappointed with this one because there were no raspberries present anywhere in this tart. I was expecting at least a few fresh raspberries on top but as you can see, there were none. So, it was just a chocolate tart. But nevertheless, it was still delicious and it wasn’t sickly sweet.
Overall, their food is above average but the service is just meh. There were four or five staff members but when we went in, no one even greeted us or even smiled at us and that’s a really important factor for me. But I’d still go back because I really want to try their other desserts.
