Koko Black: Claremont
Perth is definitley improving with its growing number of shopping centres and eateries. I just came back from High Tea at the new Koko Black chocolate salon located at the Claremont Quarters and I have to say I am impressed. I love the elegant feel of the place with its chocolate (brown) leather lounges, beautiful blue lanterns to its delicate tier plate stands.
My friends and I decided to try out this awesome chocolate salon as soon as we could and we treated ourselves to the Queen of Hearts high tea which was a two tiered platter, one sweet and one savoury. The bottom tier consisted of two mini sandwiches, a leek and ricotta tart and a pancetta and cherry tomato tart whilst the top tier presented with a lamingtom, lemon tart, layered chocolate cake, chocolate brownie and a berry panacotta. I have to say the savoury was very welcoming to the taste buds after all the sweet indulgences.
We also tried the Autumn Spoil which is pretty much a bit of everything. It consisted of pear sorbet, gingerbread cookie, chocolate mousse, pear and cinnamon cake and two chocolates.
After our meal of utter divineness, we looked around the chocolate salon and there were many different selections of various flavoured chocolates and pattiseries on offer. With easter around the corner there were many handpainted chocolate bunnies and easter eggs on display and I was very tempted to purchase one of everything. Another thing I really liked about Koko black was the chocolatier's kitchen which had a clear window so you could view the making of the chocolate and pattiseries. I got to witness the making of the creme brulee tarts which looked really delicious.
