This is a shout out to all the Chocoholic’s in Brisbane – introducing the Chocolate Pavillion, a new place for all you addicts to hang out. This dessert bar is located in the new section of Westfield in Carindale and owned by Chris Maggacis, who also the owner of Toscani chain of cafes.
Going up against Max Brenner and all the other successful dessert bars here in BrisVegas, Chocolate Pavillion sure has a lot to live up to.
The menu is full of yummy and addictive options to temp any chocoholics, with things such as chilli-spice hot chocolate to almond flavour white chocolate sushi “rice”, green tea sorbet with kiwi “wasabi”.. We really did not know where to start, so we decided to go for two desserts to share and three hot chocolates to try.
First one – Belgian waffles with maple syrup, caramel nuts, chocolate pearls, fresh fruits & crème Chantilly.
Dark Chocolate truffle – Dark chocolate gelato, dark chocolate sauce, crumbled chocolate cookies, caramel nuts, espresso & chocolate granita.
Aztec Dark – spice it up with this exotic elixir, full & deep flavour with hint of spice, nut & chilli. A spicy & sultry escape to wind down or to wind up! Also, a perfect winter drink warm up your mind and body.
Dark truffle mont d’or – Beloved Belgian hot chocolate dusted with edible gold flakes. Simple and delicate for all chocolate lovers to enjoy!
Milk parfait fleur de sel vanilla – complex taste experience with Belgian milk chocolate paired with French sea salt flavoured with vanilla
Last but not least, I must highlight that Chocolate Pavillin uses quality Mary Chocolate from Brussels. Mary of Brussels received it’s official Royal Warrant from the Belgian Royal Family in 1942. If the dessert bar still doesn’t satisfy your chocolate fix, the shop also stocks a range of Mary Belgium chocolate that you can take home to enjoy.
