You’ve probably noticed that I love chocolate from my previous posts so when I saw the mouth-watering photos of the speciality hot chocolate served at SAID – a cup of melted chocolate that flows over the sides of the mug, I knew I had to get here ASAP!
The SAID shop and restaurant was founded in Rome in 1923 and specialises in the finest Italian chocolate. The experience was truly a chocolate lovers dream. You can smell the strong cocoa as you enter the small café/shop on Broadwick Street in Soho. It can be a bit of a tight squeeze if its busy, which it was when we went at around 2pm but the service is great and you won’t be left waiting too long.
SAID is decorated authentically with hanging silver chocolate mould trays and every shelf or spare space is packed full of chocolatey items, such as chocolate bar blocks.
There is an extensive list of drinks and desserts available on the menu, as well as coffee, chocolate bars, truffles and lots of other chocolatey items.
I opted for the milk hot chocolate with a white chocolate spoon. The spoon melted beautifully as I stirred the thick hot chocolate. This hug in a mug was perfectly rich and creamy. There are three types of hot chocolate available (milk, dark and Giandiua).
The hot chocolate goo was divine! So divine that I just had to indulge in something else before I left. I chose to have a white chocolate mini cup filled with melted milk chocolate. This was great as expected!
If you haven’t already been here, it’s definitely one to try for the chocolate lovers!
