Drinks @ Mörk Chocolate Brew House @ Saturday, August 19, 2017
Tuesday 25th July
Since 2012 Mork has been the place to be (in Melbourne that is) for hot chocolate, they also sell their powers and collaborate with LuxBite. What makes them different is that their ingredients, while both Lindt and Koko are about pure chocolate Mork is about a blend.
The original 70% dark is made up of cocoa powder, coconut blossom sugar, cacao liquor (cacao paste), giving it "notes of stone fruit, almonds and ripe berries are rounded off with hints of toffee and lingering dark chocolate richness." I can't taste any of those things other than the dark chocolate though tbh.
With a small cafe up in North Melbourne, though we lived there for a couple weeks (spent either working night shift by night and fighting the neighbours by day) we never made it. On the first day up there we actually walked past on a tour but never noticed it! They're like a block away downhill from Town Hall ( #57 tram).
Chocolate, cakes/slices and tarts to go with your hot chocolate.
With very limited seats (16), the smallest dine in cafe I've ever been to actually (though Oscar Mikes is pretty small, they're takeaway based). There's often a line, luckily one Tuesday afternoon we walked right in and were offered the last two seats.
Boston Boy had the 'Layered' with chilled chocolate milk topped with a warm, creama Catalan custard infused with orange zest and vanilla bean $10.
Never have been here before I ordered the Campfire. 70% dark hot chocolate served with beechwood smoke, charcoal salt and a toasted house-made marshmallow $9.
Reminds me of 'Mist in the Woods' by Dextrose.
A smoky glass. 70% dark. Pure novelty, smokes without the mirrors, you don't get to toast your own marshmallow. Riding on the food porn trends is what keeps them going.
I prefer the iced version at Maker & Monger (Prahran Market).
Finally years after we've ticked it off the list. It was nice but nothing amazing or worth travelling for. Not worth the hype at around $10. I prefer Lindt or if you're after something fancy Dextrose back in the city, Little Bourke West.
