Au Chocolat

If you want to get a table at Au Chocolat without waiting, I suggest you click here. If you go without reservations, you may have to wait for at least half an hour (which was what happened to us).

I like the decor of this place- whimsical with an eye for detail.

Nobody should miss the Truffle Fries ($15) here. Piping hot crispy strips of potatoes with a very strong aromatic smell of truffle oil, served with mayonnaise and BBQ Sauce. The serving is ridiculously big though. If you intend to order a main course, this might be too much even for four to share. Your mind ceases to work and your hand mindlessly stretches over to get one more, just one more, just one more, one last one... no, just one more...

We were disappointed with the Duck Confit ($28). Served with mashed potato, white wine poached pear and set on a chocolate-orange sauce. The duck was far too salty. Of course some saltiness is expected since confit is prepared using preservation methods that consists of using salt to cure the duck, but this just made my blood pressure shoot up. The orange-chocolate sauce, while interesting, also failed to impress us.

Truffle fries were addictive, didn't take a liking to the duck confit. Excellent service which made the meal worthwhile after all.
