Finally, one beautiful Saturday for us to haul ourselves down to Publika. Publika has always been foreign to us, but we have heard a lot about that place having good food.
After having a very fulfilling and sumptious meal at Bangsar, our tummies only had space for dessert. And we spotted this.
Salon Du Chocolat. The humble shop is a rather small one, with roughly 6-7 tables, accommodating roughly 20 people at one go. This place is empty during lunch, but from 3pm – 5pm, this place is packed to the brim. Be warned, you might have to queue outside just like us!
Sporting a menu nearly similar to dip n dip, Salon Du Chocolat actually has fewer choices and price wise, cheaper than dip n dip.
4sq recommended their specialty : Brownies Crepe and Chocolate Waffles. Lo and behold, we went ahead with the Brownies Crepe. Folded crepe filled with brownies and topped with 3 kinds of chocolate (white, milk and dark). So why not?
Having ate the same thing at dip n dip, this Brownies Crepe (RM24.50) is slightly smaller and was actually perfect for 2. We even thought it wasn’t enough!
The crepe was so, so delectable. The crepe texture is smooth and thin enough to not being overpowering, yet it goes perfectly with the chocolate. The chocolate was generous, creamy and rich. The best part? Not too overwhelming, and not too sweet! The thing the gNOMes would love was the brownie to be warm, so when one eats it, it would be so warm, further melting the already melted chocolate into a concoction that sends a food gnome to NOM heaven.
Water is not provided free, they sell bottled water from BIG at RM1.90 each. We went for their Strawberry Tea (RM6.90) instead, and we were glad cause it was just so soothing after a ‘heavy‘ dessert.
Verdict : Beautifully made crepes with chocolate made just nice for just about any purpose – i.e. as dessert, snack, or just to satisfy cravings! Chocolate lovers must visit this place. Oh and did we mention that it is cheaper than Dip n Dip?
