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.
