Chocolat, Bucharest

There are 6 chocolat boutiques in Bucharest. I visited the one that is right next to Cara cu bere . You will find it as a patisserie-bar-restaurant.

It may be called Chocolat but you ll find more that just chocolate. Many french oriented pastries are in the catalogue, such as macarons, ispahan etc.

We tried a chocolate eclair and a millefeuille. The eclair was really nice with a chocolate choux pastry and most importantly freshly made.

The millefeuille was tasty but a bit soggy in the puff pastry. This can easily be the case in every pastry shop that doesnt compose it after it s been ordered, like the amazing Jacques Genin does. 

There is hot chocolate with different flavours including pepper or chilli.

We took some chocolates to take away and some macarons. Chocolates were good, macarons on the other hand were not. The flavours are quite ambitious, you can find carrot, orange and mint, jasmin or black truffle.The problem was in their texture being chewy and dry.
