Singaporean franchise Awfully Chocolate tried to take Beijing once before with two stores that unfortunately closed down. A new store has very recently opened in Indigo Mall and we wholeheartedly approve because the shelves are filled with chocolate-y goodness of every size, shape, and form.
Their modern store features big wooden tables that create a calm and welcoming atmosphere for people to sit down and chat with friends, or quietly do some work while satisfying that chocolate craving, multiple times over.
The tough part is choosing what to indulge in. The options are plentiful, including a slice of super-stacked chocolate cake (RMB 27), a roll of white chocolate and butterscotch (RMB 35), a piece of cold poached chocolate (RMB 35), white chocolate crème brulee (RMB 33), a salted butterscotch brownie (RMB 27), a chocolate mille crepe (RMB 37), and even a flourless chocolate cake (RMB 30).
On the drinks side of things, Awfully Chocolate serves up a genuinely good macchiato, if that’s your thing.
We went with their specialty treat: a slice of super stacked chocolate cake. This is seven layers of fudge and chocolate making for a perfectly moist and tasty, if incredibly rich, cake. Apart from visits to the store, Awfully Chocolate may just be the best place to get that birthday cake for your chocolate-addicted friend who deserves nothing but the best. Another, larger, outlet has just opened on the basement level of Taikoo Li Sanlitun South, opposite BHG Supermarket, perfect for those who prefer their chocolate a little more centrally located.
