We’ve been fans of homegrown dessert chain The Choc Pot since they started out in Burwood and were excited to hear that they’ve now expanded to a larger central kitchen being run out of their spacious store at the Saporium in Rosebery, an up and coming foodie precinct housed in a converted warehouse.
We visited one weekend after doing some furniture shopping in the area and warmed ourselves up with a couple of their Tea Hot Chocs – a clever drink that means that we don’t have to pick between two of our favourite hot beverages. I tried the crowd-pleasing French Earl Grey with Milk Choc, featuring a blend of one of my favourite teas with their delectable milk chocolate for a comforting drink in this winter chill, while the boy went for the more adventurous Mango Sencha with White Choc which was match made in heaven – the fruity notes were tempered by the subtly creamy white chocolate, and surprisingly it wasn’t all that sweet.

We couldn’t leave without trying something from their proper dessert menu though and went for the Honeycrumb Waffnut which was an explosion of salted caramel, crispy honey-cinnamon waffnuts, softened by an interesting rock salt icecream, Belgian chocolate drizzles and given some crunch thanks to the biscuit crumbs sprinkled over it. A rich dessert that is best shared, with some great flavours that are a bit different from their other chocolate-centred offerings.
