Luckily, there was a Koko Black on the way back to our hotel.
Koko Black's salon was one of the loveliest restaurants I've been to in Melbourne. A stunning back counter display, beautiful curtains, dainty chandeliers, elegant looking furniture and a spacious area for guests made our visit to their Collins Street branch more memorable.
Koko Black's Baby Ice Cream for the little kids and the kids-at-heart. A single of scoop of chocolate is enough to fulfill your chocolate desire. Other ice cream flavours they offer: vanilla bean, blood orange and lemon.
Lui ordered an iced something drink hehe. I really don't remember but this was either an Iced Chocolate/Mocha/Coffee. A refreshing drink of chocolate blend or espresso with vanilla ice cream and chocolate shavings on top.
My Husband had the Belgian Hot Chocolate while I ordered the Light Hot Chocolate. It was my first time to notice a restaurant offering a light version of their hot chocolate. The regular Belgian Hot Chocolate tasted delicious but I liked the Light Hot Chocolate better. It was smooth, soothing and light.
The Husband and I shared the Belgian Spoil platter to go with our hot beverages. My Husband loved this treat as it was everything chocolate in one platter: chocolate cake, two Belgian chocolates, a shortbread, chocolate ice cream and chocolate mousse.
The Belgian chocolates were delightful and I love the shortbread and ice cream. The mousse was light and smooth. Koko Black's chocolates are not that sweet but since I don't like eating chocolates all the time, it was a bit much for me. I generously let the Husband have the chocolate to himself. This platter was truly meant to be shared.
The next time we visit Melbourne, we will definitely visit a Koko Black salon as I look forward to savouring a cup of their Light Hot Chocolate.
