Chocolate Bar (Kuwait)
Like their caption,’life just got sweeter’, I’m really happy that we have chocolate bar in Kuwait. I would say ‘its not possible to go wrong with chocolate’, but then when its mixed and matched with other flavors we have to be careful. They have filled their menu with many colorful and delicious combination of sweet flavors. This is a Kuwaiti concept restaurant and I’ve heard that all the chocolate used for the dishes are made from premium Belgian chocolate. On a weekend, almost certainly you will have to wait for a seat and through the years I’ve had most of their desserts from different branches. The restaurant is pretty comfortable, the ambiance is alright and the people are generally warm and friendly. Recently we had been to the Marina Chocolate Bar overlooking the crescent. I’d prefer this to the avenues or any other branch especially when the climate is pleasant.
Since we had a heavy lunch that day, we just wanted to have the mesmerizing touch of chocolate and we kept the order sweet and simple. We went for something we’ve had many times Gooey Chocolate Cake in a Cup (kd 2.900) and Chocolate Truffle Cake (Kd 2.950). Like I said in the beginning you cant really go wrong with chocolate, or so I thought. To begin with the Gooey Chocolate…., the dessert was over heated. Did I order coffee..??!! Moreover, there was’nt enough cake in the dessert. It just felt like we were having melted chocolate and ice cream. I’ve had this dish many times and earlier it was really yummy, but the last two times sorry to say it had been disappointing. The Chocolate Truffle was just average. The cake though moist it lacked flavor, but when mixed with the chocolate that flows from its belly, it’s alright. A week earlier we had a new item on their menu, Pain Perdue (kd 2.750). It was really good. Loved the caramel, walnuts, french toast and ice cream combo. Their Fondue too is worth a try.
While I don’t want to give a negative review on the restaurant, let me just say that I would’nt bet on the consistency.
