Chocolate. Macarons. Luxury. Check, check, and check. Tack on a pricey bill at the end, and you've got MoRoCo Chocolat. Known as one of best chocolate boutiques in Toronto, I finally had the opportunity to try out MoRoCo on a whim one afternoon when Joey and I were hiding out from the rain. Serving everything from actual three-course meals to dessert fondue and afternoon tea, we eventually decided on trying out their famous 'sipping chocolate' and a couple macarons for a sweet afternoon snack.
Joey decided on a small pot of 66% dark chocolate while I tried the white chocolate with orange and vanilla. Don't let the wording mislead you, though. An individual "pot" of sipping chocolate is really only 3.5 ounces, and at the premium price of $12, we were expecting something orgasmic. We also had lavender, vanilla, and salted caramel macarons. While everything was extremely sweet and satisfied our sweet tooth cravings, nothing was especially unique or overly delicious and memorable. The decor was gorgeous and charming, but it's one of those places where you pay for the sake of enjoying the environment and "status" of being able to afford such luxuries. With an end bill of over $60 for simply dessert for two and a mandatory gratuity fee charged at 18.5%, we concluded that it was an interesting experience and we probably won't be returning unless for a special occasion.
