Took the drive into Houston to check out Araya Chocolates since I purchased a Groupon. Wow, this quaint chocolate shop was a complete awing experience. never had I seen such beauty in chocolates, many of them hand painted. Assorted gift chocolates displayed around the shop had me shopping for a little treat for everyone I knew. (They have cute little clear containers that can hold one to five chocolates in with "Thanks" or "Congratulations on them....perfect little gift of indulgence.) Great service and best of all, the sample dish contained entire pieces of these colorful delicious morsels of yum.
It was my first time going to TCB and I had hot choc. My friend had hot choc. and a gigantic slice of choc. cake. The hot choc. had marshmellows and whipped cream on top. Only downfall was that it cooled off quickly, but I asked to have it reheated. I tasted a piece of my friend's cake and honestly it was no big deal. Just tasted kinda blah and chilled. Since it was my first time there, I can't vouch for anything other than the hot choc. but OMG, it was DIVINE!
