Co Co Sala

After taking my friend to dinner at Central, we headed over to Co Co Sala [warning: annoying music plugin] for dessert. ♥ I first tried out this chocolate bar / lounge when it opened a few years ago. It was for a “dinner,” but hardly fit the bill on that account. We’d ordered several appetizers and three different dessert courses and I still went away hungry! However – though the portions were tiny, the quality was excellent. (I still think the crab cake I’d had there was the best I’d tasted in my life, despite fact that it was the size of a golf ball).

This place is definitely more ideal for dessert, after you’ve had a full dinner. We started out with the hot chocolate, of course:


They came in these lovely tall mugs, with marshmallows on skewers. I had the salted caramel, and my friend got the milk chocolate. Both quite rich and delicious!

We then split the ‘xocolatyl’ Aztec experience, a three course dessert tasting. It started out with what’s pictured at the top of this post, the Amuse: churros, cinnamon cream and dulce de leche dip. Sugary, flaky and lovely overall.

The main dessert (which you can order separately without the course) is definitely among their best offerings. I think there’s little that could go wrong with a soufflé. ♥ Loved the extra kick from the kahlua soother, which went really well with the warm, gooey soufflé (drizzle it on top).

A slightly underwhelming finish. Just a nutty cookie, really. The sesame seeds added a pretty decoration to the plate, though.

We also got a trio of sorbets (I think they called it a “montage”), which were light and fruity. From the top: coconut with strawberry slices, white peach with kiwi, mango with red grapes. My favorite was the mango, which had a very rich and true flavor. The white peach was unique and interesting, but the coconut wasn’t very coconutty.

As we were leaving the restaurant, we spotted this in their window. How cute!

Wow, thanks for taking the time to read and comment! =) I will definitely say hello the next time I stop in there.

And glad to hear about the website! Music on websites is just a pet peeve of mine, lol.

It still amuses me the idea of “mexican” you guys have. That ‘s why it’s called “fusion”, right? It’s only about influences, not the real thing.
The sad part is that I’ve been craving chocolate all day and with your post I’m craving it more! XD;;

Thnaks for sharing as always!

XD Yeah, I’ve no idea what you would serve in Mexico for a chocolately dessert. But hey, as long as it tastes good, right? ♥
