MALAYSIANS’ favourite chocolate restaurant has several new dishes up its sleeves for chocolate lovers to enjoy.
The Theobroma Chocolate Lounge is a chocolate concept store created by franchisee Hing Yiap Knitting Industries Bhd.
Chief operating officer Edwin Saw said that on top of chocolates, the store serves good food and great beverages as well.
This year more additions can be seen to the extensive menu for customers to choose from.
Delightful: The chocolate fondue is a popular choice.
Beverages like the Snow White, Fair Lady, Snow White Mocha Frappes, Iceberg Lady and the Princess of Iceland are still available.
These drinks are made from chocolate bits which are melted and added into the drinks without any sugar.
Saw recently came up with the Banana Frappe, a personal favourite of his and added Strawberry Frappes to the list as well.
The new dishes are all fusion meals designed for women who enjoy smaller, healthier portions.
One of the dishes, the Chicken Mango Jicama, is similar to rojak but with a twist.
“It is a half western and half eastern concoction that can be a salad or a meal by itself,” Saw said.
The Meatball with Oriental Tomato Sauce is filled with spices and leaves a fresh taste in the mouth.
Another interesting addition is the Chicken Curry Aromatica, a curry chicken dish with the chicken set apart from the curry.
The Lounge also sells chocolate roses all year round but the price dips during Valentines Day unlike other outlets.
The Theobroma Chocolate Lounge can be found at 1 Utama (Opening hours 10am-10pm), Pavilion KL (10am-11pm), Bangsar Village (9am-11pm), Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) (24 hours) and The Curve (10am-10.30pm, weekends 10am-midnight).
