It was an occasion that needed a grand celebration for a chocolate lover in me. You see, I have a very big sweet tooth and I can survive just on sweets/desserts and most conveniently on chocolates. Chocolates are great, they give me energy which can be used to go buy more chocolate and yes, eat them.
So when I heard about the Chocolate Room celebrating 10 Chocolicious years it was an occasion to rejoice for me. I hurriedly went to their standalone store in Tower B of Unitech Cyber Park, Sector 39 in Gurgaon. The Chocolate Room is India’s distinctive boutique café, and it celebrated its 10 years anniversary recently on 6th July 2017. The Chocolate Room is renowned for being a specialist chocolate indulgence café, offering customers unique flavors of Italian hot chocolate, chocolate fondues, chocolate melting pots, and a variety of chocolate cakes, waffles and Belgian chocolates among others.
The Chocolate Room is an ideal café for everyone with a passion for not only chocolate but also mouth-watering offerings such as Mexican Bells, Fusion Sandwiches, Burgers, Mouth Watering Pancakes, Frozen Coffee, Fruit Frappers, Chocktails, Side Serves, Sundaes, Colada, Iced Tea, Waffle Wonders, Affogato, Pastries & Desserts to name a few and has been creating a new wave of chocolate culture worldwide.
While at the outlet, along with formal interactions with the owners, I had the opportunity to savour some of their signature dishes and drinks. The Chocolate Room outlet at Gurgaon is quite cozy and comfortable. The menu is exhaustive and descriptive with description given on the menu about each dish or drink.
I ordered and savoured Lindt Dark Chocolate Shake (a rich, intensely flavoured dark chocolate), Cappuccino Coffee, Pan Toasted Penne “Alfredo” (Delicious pastas mixed in white cream sauce with bell peppers and olives), and Chocolate Avalanche (chocolate mousse, brownie, sponge and chocolate truffle pastry).
Some of the other dishes that others at my table ordered were thin crust Pizzas, Potato wedges, and other milk shakes.
I thoroughly enjoyed my Lindt dark chocolate shake; it was super delicious and was served in a large pretty glass. And when they served Chocolate Avalanche on my table, I was breath taken. It was full of chocolate and it was so artistically presented that by the time I had a bite, others around me snatched it away to click pics of it and in the process finished up tasting it too.
By this time I was feeling and smelling of chocolates only, as I had excess chocolate for lunch. By this time the owners had also arrived, so I congratulated them on the 10th anniversary of the Chocolate Room and listened to their views on their establishment.
Mr. Chaitanya Kumar, Co-founder and CMD, said “Ever since the launch of the first store in 2007, we have endeavoured to create an unmatched chocolate experience. Today with over 230+ stores spread across geographies, our aim is to continue expand footprint of The Chocolate Room across the world”.
