The Chocolate Factory

We tried a few chocolates from Laurent Bernard, chocolatier (at The Chocolate Factory at Robertson Quay), after dinner at Irene's place.

What can I say... those dark chocolates are heaven. Even at the whopping price of about S$38 for a dozen chocolates. You really do get what you pay for.

The Chocolate Factory sets aside a chilled walk-in room to display its chocolates, sort of like the walk-in chiller at Corduroy & Finch. You take a plate and a pair of tongs, pick out the chocolates that you want, and take them to the counter for serving or packing.

In addition to chocolates, The Chocolate Factory also serves a range of cakes and tarts - mostly chocolate-based, of course.

Be warned though - the cafe is small and staffed by a tiny crew. That means your order gets personalized attention from the chef, but it also means a loooong wait for your order to be filled.

Max Brenner's has a new rival for the distinction of being my favorite chocolate spot. I just love competition.

Laurent Bernard Chocolatier??? He was a damn racist. Went there for chocolate, and he asked us to leave before even we could finish our food cos he thinks we cant pay for his "heavenly" chocolates. Nearly wanted to throw my money at his damn arrogant face. Wonder even how I pay for such bad service.

Just a thought, personally I dont think it tastes very nice though especially at that sort of price.

Sorry to hear you had a bad experience at the Chocolate Factory.

Your post made me appreciate the service stories at Waiterrant.Net even more than usual!

Met the guy and nothing racist about him. Such a disturbing comment !

There must be a damn good reason a shopowner will ask a customer to leave - cheong999 must've deserved such treatment. Some people think they have the money and can behave as they like.

Sorry, he probably taught you manners - something you should've learnt at home.
