Park Slope’s The Chocolate RoomPosted on Dec 29 in Dessertby ShanMasalaPrint
“The Chocolate Room” in Park Slope, Brooklyn is a little small dessert spot that many locals go to. They have a wide assortment of delicious chocolate goodies that any chocoholic must check out.
Last week, I happened to be in the neighborhood and went in with some friends to have a nice little dessert. We ended up getting a bunch of things including chocolate cake. The place is small, cozy yet sparsely decorated. After being seated we were greeted with chocolate in a small spoon to try, which tasted quite good. The servers leave more to be desired overall, but they are nice and courteous people who just happen to serve too many tables at once. We ended up ordering a chocolate fondue, some hot chocolate, brownie ala mode (Chocolate brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream) and of course a piece of chocolate cake.
The food came out after a few minutes and was very chocolaty which may and may not be a good thing depending on your tastes on the intensity of chocolate. The chocolate cake was delicious, but I have had better. The hot chocolate was just okay; nothing great. The ice cream that came with the brownie was amazing. It came with fudge but it wasn’t overly sweet. I would say that this is something that everyone should order. If not that, then definitely check out the fondue. It was probably just as good as the brownie ala mode (make sure to only order one with milk & dark chocolate), because it was nicely melted and the flavors really came out with every bite.
In closing, if you’re in the area then this is definitely a nice place to check out. Honestly speaking though, I wouldn’t make a plan to go here specifically since I’m not much of a choco-lover, but if you’re around and have a need for a chocolate fix, you can’t go wrong.
