The Best Chocolate Cake in the World?
On Friday night, while accompanying DH on his photo-taking adventure at Fashion's Night Out in lower Manhattan, we came upon a small, oozing-with-charm storefront in Nolita with a bold name: The Best Chocolate Cake in the World.
So of course, I insisted that he stop photographing half naked models, so we could try a slice of this heavenly cake.
There were two choices, the "traditional" at 55 percent cocoa and a darker one at 70 percent, which is the one we had.
Was it the best in the world? Let's just say it was fabulous, but it wasn't really what I consider cake (i.e., it was made without flour and baking powder) so it was more like a mousse. Not a bad thing at all. DH called it a high end Kit Kat bar. I'd say it was way better than that.
This shop is the first American outlet of a mini-chain based in Sao Paolo, Brazil. If you're in the neighborhood, and by neighborhood, I mean anywhere in New York City, it is certainly worth a visit. 55A Spring Street, near Mulberry, NYC.
