Cocomaya! Located on Connaught Street, Cocomaya is known for their fine chocolates and artisan bakery. Each has their own dedicated shop, side by side.
At the bakery, I treated myself to the blueberry and vanilla custard brioche. Divine! I already can't wait to take friends and family here and eat the exact same thing. Yes, it was really that delicious.
As expected, I also had to visit the chocolate shop. I chatted with one of the lovely owners who helped me select a variety of chocolates -- my favourites were the house truffles (in milk or 72% dark) and the salted caramels (coated in dark chocolate). The taste, the texture -- all extraordinary. And of course, what's a charming chocolate shop without gorgeous packaging? My selection was gifted in a beautiful box with co-ordinating ribbon.
A perfect gift... or even a nice little 'pick me up' for yourself! It certainly made my day.
