Combining chocolate with savory ingredients like chilies is nothing new, but Chef Santosh Tiptur takes his experience with the beloved ingredient as a pastry chef and puts it to good use preparing both the savory dishes, desserts, and chocolates at this chocolate boutique and restaurant. Surprisingly, some of his best creations here turned out to be savory, like his Grown Up Grilled Cheese: Truffle Scented Brioche, Cheddar Cheese, Tomato Soup, and Cheese Fritter, evocative of many a kid’s favorite meal, but with the mild heat and slight bitterness of a chili-spiced chocolate cream. There’s nothing puerile about the vibe here though—the inviting lounge says for adults only while the Earl Gray and Goji Berry chocolates give grown ups a childlike satisfaction.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Grown Up Grilled Cheese: Truffle Scented Brioche, Cheddar Cheese, Tomato Soup, Cheese Fritter, and Chipotle Chocolate Cream
  • Curry Coconut Lamb Slider: Curry-Coconut Organic Lamb, Baby Corn, and Lime-Yogurt Crème
