It’s been a bit warmer in HK this year, but it’s finally feeling like winters (not sure how many days of winter are left)! And when it’s cold, I immediately start craving for a gooey and thick Hot Chocolate.
There is obviously a long list of Hot Chocolate in Hong Kong, but we at HKYantoYan.com have managed to zero down on 5 of our most favourite ones for you!
Being in the chocolate business from 1926, Godiva deserves to be the first one listed. Not solely for that, but also for their creative instincts with chocolate of course. It also reflects in the range of seven Hot Chocolate flavours they have to offer like Chilli, Caramel salted, and my fav 72% dark hot chocolate. Yes, you can say that they take their chocolate very seriously.

LA MAISON DU CHOCOLAT
This place comes from a man who dedicated his entire life to chocolate, Mr Robert Linxe. It was his expertise led to a whole range of more adult-like chocolates which they proudly term as a reinvention of the balance of taste. Not to be surprised, for more than thirty-five years this place has been a market of luxury chocolates. Well, it is the same when it comes to the hot chocolates on their menu. Especially the Guayaquil that has a taste that will linger on your mind long enough for a second round.
