Strolling along Queen West earlier in the year, a "Coming Soon" sign had been witnessed plastered behind glass walls. It was at that moment that I vowed to stop in for my own dose of chocolatey goodness should Cacao 70's Fashion District location open for business before the conclusion of my Toronto term.
At just over fourteen dollars, I suppose the dish could have packed in a stronger wow factor.
It was noticed that the kitchen was mainly open concept, with two large crepe griddles, an espresso machine, and numerous airtight containers of chocolate lining the perimeter.
Equipped with slim yet sturdy fondue forks, we proceeded to stab the components on the board. Each item was carefully dipped into the fondue to ensure a glorious coat of chocolate upon removal. Absolutely blissful to consume, each and every chew possessed a little taste of heaven.
We were out of chocolate before we knew, only to be told that refills were additional two dollars (or five dollars for a large refill). With no other options to thoroughly enjoy the remainder of the dessert, an order for Dark Chocolate refill was reluctantly placed and processed.
Nonetheless, the fondue had been an astoundingly choice (on our parts, anyway) and truly proves Cacao 70's dominance in the realm of chocolate. While not exactly economical in nature, I'm already looking forward to trying their ever-Instagrammed Marshmallow Pizza. (Let the sugar high begin!)
