We had been eying the dark chocolate torte and cups of chocolate mousse lined up on the counter next to us all the way through lunch. We really should have listened to our inner voices which said to take some with our appetizers, but no we didn’t. We spent another 30 minutes enjoying our mains, delicious as they were, to find as our plates were taken away and we rose to collect our much awaited chocolate prize, that there were no more!! What the what!?!!!
New French restaurant Brass serving Michelin star dishes has a special 30% discount as their soft opening and you have to make a reservation as it’s been fully booked and today, people were turned away at the door. The salad and dessert bar were welcoming but we were saddened by the lack of chocolate to finish off our meal. We gently pleaded with our waiter Joe to search the kitchen for something of a chocolate nature. After several attempts he managed to return with these –
Creamy white chocolate shells with beautiful pearly pink damask prints. I never understand how they make things like this, but I definitely know how to appreciate them. Each were quite weighty little things, and surprisingly firm. I had to bite into it to crack it open and there was a fairly thick shell that was sweet and creamy. My mum would definitely enjoy these. Was still a little sad that we didn’t have the other chocolate desserts, but that just means we have to go back for more!
Rating: 4.5/5 (it wasn’t dark chocolate)
