Fans of chocolate can seek asylum starting this month at Mad About Coco, where an insanely broad compilation of cacao-based treats is now available.
From choc fondue to churros with choc sauce, choc brownies to muffins & marshmallows, waffles to pancakes, cookies to crepes, there's a dessert for nearly every type of sweet tooth at this Solaris Dutamas cafe headed by two Malaysian sisters.
"Innocent Devil Tiramisu Ball," likely the most fun of Mad About Coco's concoctions.
Tiramisu within a hollow globe of Belgian white & dark choc, melted down with hot choc sauce ...
... turned into one tasty mess, creamy-gooey but not cloying. RM20 before taxes.
Mad About Coco's signature cake also endures a similar transformation ...
... becoming an inventive variation of choc lava cakes, with the molten heat pouring forth from without, not within. RM18.50.
Another pleasant surprise: Sliced strawberries at the cake's center.
Other interesting items here include the babka-inspired sweet yeast cake with chocolate sauce & vanilla ice cream (RM13.50) ...
... & crunchy pizza topped with melted chocolate, cornflakes & marshmallows (RM18.50). The chocolate's commendably though not commandingly deep in flavor.
Can we make a wish? It'd be cool if chocolate cocktails were someday served here too.
