Max Brenner Chocolate Bar @ The Esplanade

Max Brenner is a special place for chocolaFont sizetiers or chocoholics :) We have chocolate cafes in Malaysia namely Theobroma and Cocoa (there are more that I don't know :p) Since we do not have a Max Brenner here in Malaysia, off we go to Max Brenner.

What's going to a chocolate cafe if you don't try their hot chocolate drink. Although we were very full from dinner (this is supposed to be dessert but wait til you read the rest of the entry), we couldn't resist trying their Venuzelan Chocolate Drink. It comes in a hug mug. What's a hug mug? It is a mug shaped like a dew drop. The reason for its shape is to enable the chocolate drinker to hug the mug with both hands (not very practical in Singapore as it is already very hot here, normally in cold countries this would be practical because it is cold and one wants to warm their body up with a cup of good ol' hot chocolate).

Ordering the Chocolate Fondue (Small size and large size - we chose the latter). They serve three types of chocolate dip. He he..looks cute and pretty colourful. Milk chocolate, white chocolate and dark chocolate. However, the melted chocolate that they serve is too little as we had a lot of stuff to dip. The best is the milk chocolate dip. Second comes the dark chocolate and last, white chocolate. I am normally alright with white chocolate but this one is too milky and I just don't like it.

Tri Colour Fondue Dip

The fondue comes with marshmallows, banana cake cubes, fresh sliced bananas and huge strawberries. Isn't this too much for three for dessert? :p The fruits were fresh, the cake good too and marshmallows :) I wish they could provide more chocolate dip as it was not enough for all these. You can even treat it as a light meal for three people. We were stuffed to the brim as we had a very filling meal earlier.

Ooooh.. they don't give refills on the fondues?

aiyar should tell them that you are here for the fondues not the fruits amd marshmallows.. ask them to top the fondues more. :P.

The hug mug is cute, but yes not very practical for our tropical weather.

Hur hur, I was too silly not to think of that. But I doubt, cause it is the most expensive thing in the whole fondue thing. Ya lor eat until tummy wanna burst.

There's another chocolate place in 1 Utama, hope to try it one day.. ;)

Hi Mars Phoo, it was Theobroma but it has since closed down.
