Hotel Chocolat: 133 Victoria St, London SW1E 6RD
For a moment of pure indulgence away from the madding crowd, Hotel Chocolat, in the heart of busy Victoria Street, is worth a visit.
You can drop in and try a new recipe on the house every month. While you’re there, browse everything from elegant gift boxes of chocolate to imaginative takes on your everyday chocolate fix, all made according to their mantra – more cocoa, less sugar – for a satisfying cocoa hit.
As well as their luxury chocolate, which includes bars made with some of the rarest cocoa on the planet, you’ll find cocoa-infused gin, beer and vodka, and a range of sweet and savoury condiments including jams, chutneys, oils and sauces.
