I was at Suntec City Mall today with my family, and happened to find out that a Cocoa Colony café had just opened there. I had wanted to try their hot chocolate drink since forever, but hadn’t gone to their original outlet at Shaw Centre yet. Thus, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they have an outlet at Suntec City Mall! 🙂
It’s located on the second floor of the mall, which is easily accessible by public transport. The nearest MRT is Promenade, which makes it really convenient to get to the mall haha. There’s a small seating area, but as you can tell from the picture, it can get crowded really easily.
Besides their hot chocolate and cocoa-based drinks, they also sell sweet treats and gelato! The cakes looked yummy, but we didn’t try them this time. Next time then!
They also serve 6 different flavors of gelato, and my sis has a really sweet tooth, so she got 2 scoops to share with my mom haha.
Strawberry gelato and caramel rum gelato (2 scoops for S$6.30). The strawberry gelato was smooth and had a strong and sweet strawberry flavor, which was great! The caramel rum gelato was even better in my opinion, with the rum flavor coming through very very strongly, and which paired well with the caramel ice cream. Yum-my! 😀
Bro got a Cocoa Ice Blended ($7.50), which we both felt was rather watered down, and didn’t have a very strong chocolate kick. Don’t buy this, I personally thought it was a waste of money lol.
This Cocoa 76 (S$7.90) on the other hand, is pure awesomeness. This is their signature drink, and yep it tastes amazing. I love how the hot chocolate tasted slightly bitter and yet sweet at the same time! I really couldn’t get enough of this, and was momentarily pissed off when my bro drank 1/3 of it. GRRRR. Don’t mess with my hot choc ya. Hahahaha.
Dark Chocolate Cocoa Bolas. I’m not sure how much they cost, because I didn’t look at the price and it was free haha. It’s free with any purchase from now till 10th May 2015. It’s a crispy pastry coated with dark chocolate, and I felt that it tasted a bit dry, and the dark chocolate coating didn’t really stand out. Oh well, at least I got to try it for free haha.
There aren’t that many seats, so I believe they would rather customers buy and takeaway, rather than sit down to eat. Which is fine really, because I don’t mind shopping with a cuppa hot choc in my hand hahaha. The gelato is rather good for a non-Italian gelateria, so kudos to them for that. The winner here is obviously their hot chocolate. Don’t get the Cocoa 38, but get the stronger Cocoa 76 or Cocoa 100. Those will have the stronger chocolate kick! 😉 Oh yes, from now to 10th May, there’s an opening special of buy 1 get 1 free for their drinks (free drink of equal or lesser value)!
