Boon Chocolate

Again, we went to the place since March, the time that Boon seems to be famous among every blogs. Of couse I wouldn't miss it :) About to finish school, Nicole raised up an idea about going somewhere after class. I told her about Boon and she said she tried it (it is near her house). So there were 3 of us: Billy, Nicole and me.

The real place is different from what I thought when seeing in other blogs.. don't know how different..just different..haha

When you go inside, a big long table of chocolate.. my face was smiling.

The packaging is cute.

Don't you think so?

We went up stair, it was a bit dark and got only a couple sitting at that time.

It took us awhile reading menu and decided what we should get.

We ordered 2 kinds of hot chocolate drink. Nicole and I got the same thing and Billy got the different one. Sorry it was too long till I couldn't remember which one tasted like. Only remember that one has a stronger cocao taste and another one got a hint of flower.

Grenada (South America) Chocolate origin espresso $7.50 - served with a Boon praline and chocolate

Madagasca (West Africa) Chocolate origin espresso $7.50 - served with a Boon praline and chocolate mousse

Happy with all pretty desserts !

We had some desserts to share. Chef told us that the Petit Tarte au Chocolat basically is the rich petite chocolate tart. Sounds good, we ordered it.

Petit Tarte au Chocolat (Orange Blossom) $9.00

It is incredibly tiny ! We all were laughing when it came. It was about 1 bite size.

We devided it into three super small pieces. Yumm.. It tasted great, rich, chocolaty and the crust was so short. (but it was very pricey, $9.00 compare with the size) Anyway, I think the chocolate tart recipe from LCB is still not inferior.

The 3 small moulded chocolate came in a set of chocolate drinks.

Lien, white chocolate ganache infused with anise and vanilla beans

SAIGON, milk chocolate ganache infused with fresh lemongrass

Balsamico, an adventurous blend of strawberry and balsamic vinegar

We ordered another dish !

Belgian waffles with vanilla bean ice cream and Boon chocolate sauce $10.50

Money shot !

It was good, waffle was warm and delicious with the ice cream and high quality of chocolate sauce. (but I love Max Brenner's Waffle ^o^)

Can you see the tart in my hands? It was small I told you.

That day I thought we were sick of chocolate..hahaha
