The possibilities of the ways to eat chocolate are never ending. One can melt it, form it into any shape, mix it, freeze it, drink it. Now, chocolate can be endlessly consumed on tap at Haute Dolci located in St Jame’s Quarter. Dessert lovers can experience the flowing chocolatey extravaganza in person.
Haute Dolci in Edinburgh is the first Scottish restaurant from the famous luxury dessert chain. The brand started 12 years ago with an immense passion for sweet things. The restaurant promises a dining experience that will turn anyone into a true connoisseur. The business “is turning fine dining into fine art with a range of luxury desserts that bring a new culinary experience to the table and give unforgettable pleasure to those who taste them.”
With a concept pertaining to fine art, desserts come to life as indulgent creations that awaken one’s senses. Not to mention the attention to detail and the service the restaurant chain prides itself on: it is bound to bring moments of fun and brighten a visitor’s day.
On top of the chocolate on-tap situation, the extensive menu offers some highlights one shouldn’t miss. Guests can order pre-set menu options, as well as create their own dessert. Secret Edinburgh got the chance to try some of Haute Dolci’s new dessert menu, and it’s a sweet tooth person’s dream come true.
An Offer She Can’t Refuse Waffles were the highlight of the show, with soft waffles topped with chocolate, strawberries and vanilla gelato. After all, less is more. The Lotus Biscoff Croffles with Biscoff gelato and sauce were another noteworthy highlight, and it’s as sweet as it sounds. The Berry Good French Toast made our day as well, with a thick, fluffy stack that will put a smile on the grumpiest of faces.
What is more, you have to try the San Sebastian Cheesecake, a light, fluffy cheesecake burnt on both sides that made us not want a classic cheesecake again.
If you’re feeling creative, make your own crepes, waffles, pancakes, brioche buns, cookie dough and more. Pair it with a drizzle of sauce or chocolate of your choice, top it with whatever you choose and finish the creation with your favourite gelato flavour. You can also try the dipped strawberries or the chocolate fondue. And if you’re feeling like something sour, go for the poached eggs.
Brunch is our favourite, and it is safe to say we are trying everything from the menu with a generous splash of that chocolate on tap.
