Get desserted

The Bliss Chocolate Lounge at The Collection, UB City has donned a new avatar with the recent launch of its brand, Chocolate D’Luxe {in the same location}. With a collection of decadent chocolates, gourmet cakes and pre-plated desserts, indulging your sweet tooth just got a sugary rush. Thanks to Chef Elaine Young, a friendly and lively consultant pastry chef and chocolatier from Australia, we have an interesting lot to look forward to at this new spot.

Tease your palate

Spoiling you for choice, the menu lists out chocolates bursting with flavours such as Passion Praline {that’s passion fruit for you}, Cafe Coffee, Nougat Cube and Pista Cardamom. Chef Elaine’s travels around the country have also inspired a range of gourmet chocolates with a desi twist. Think smooth chocolate that gives way to a refreshing flavour of paan, or perhaps, Assamese tea. And, that’s not all. Once you’ve had your fill of chocolates, choose from their selection of pastries, muffins, cupcakes and snacks, or sit back with a mug of thick, hot chocolate and some cookies. Also on offer are a range of teas from Sublime House of Teas.

Serving soon

While we couldn’t stop reaching out for the tempting treats at Chocolate D’Luxe, we’re also looking forward to their special high-tea menu which will be introduced soon. The set carte will feature savoury dishes {curried egg sandwiches, anyone?} and warm scones with fresh butter and jam {we can’t wait to try the strawberry and balsamic vinegar jam} along with tiny portions of desserts and a serving of tea.
