Cocoa Colony: Get Your Chocolate Fix (and Lunch), Mama!

From hot cocoa to milkshakes, marshmallow pops and even waffles, Cocoa Colony is a dessert lover’s dream

Looking for a fun spot for a birthday party, mama? Or an unexpectedly delicious sandwich? Or maybe it’s just been one of those days and you simply need to mainline chocolate in any form necessary (liquid, frozen, cake…). Whatever your reason, I’d suggest you check out the new menu at Cocoa Colony ASAP.

If you’re not familiar with Cocoa Colony, it’s a café that uses only premium grade chocolate from all over the world while crafting delectable treats like their signature Amazonian Gold Dark Hot Chocolate, Black Velvet Chocolate Cake, Milkshakes and much more. They’ve also recently added some savoury options, like sandwiches made to order.

I kicked off my tasting with two different sandwiches to try: Grilled Chicken on Chocolate Bread, and Forest Mushrooms with Aged Parmesan and Fresh Parsley, served on ever-so-slightly-sweet (but not cloying) white milk toast. Not only are these sandwiches freshly made to order (a rarity at too many cafes in my opinion), but they are totally satisfying as a lunch meal and great value at under $10.

Other savoury options include Waffles with toppings like mushrooms or Sous Vide Chicken with Basil Pesto, Pine Nuts & Brie Cheese – this is by no means a light meal, in fact it’s perfect for sharing, but at $10.50 it’s a steal compared to what many places around town charge for their spin on chicken and waffles. I’d never had pine nuts on a waffle before but the earthniess worked well. (Don’t worry, you can of course go the sweet route too and top your waffle with chocolate ice cream, or coconut ice cream drizzled with gulu melaka).

Meanwhile I was sampling Cocoa Colony’s signature hot chocolates. Among my faves was the Chocolate and Hazelnut topped with chocolate shavings — velvety and satisfying, but not too sweet. Even less sweet was the rich and delicious Single Origin Santo Domingo topped with a cinnamon stick, a must for any major dark chocolate lover in search of something warm and comforting.

Things really kicked into high gear when some of Cocoa Colony’s new “treats” were brought out. All three of the new signature chocolate bars – Sea Salt Caramel, Matcha Ganace, and Salted Egg Yolk – make for satisfying alternatives to the traditional candy bar. The Salted Caramel was like a grown-up version of one of my childhood faves, the Caramello, while the Salted Egg Yolk filling is buttery and dances on the tongue without being too sweet.

Perhaps the highlight of the day for me, though, was the wonderful Marshmallow Pop, a popsicle-like confection coated in dark chocolate and covered with colourful and sparkly sprinkles. This one looks like a Magnum, except it doesn’t melt! It’s a super fun treat for anyone who likes marshmallows, and at $3.90 is another good deal for a handcrafted dessert.

Rounding out the afternoon was a parade of more deliciousness: a Speculoos milkshake (in case you want something sweet but perhaps don’t want to mainline chocolate), rich Amazonian Gold Cake, and a Caramelized Banana Tart that was oh-so smooth, cool and creamy.

Cocoa Colony didn’t just serve up one of the best desserts I’ve had in Singapore, it served up ten of them! Whether you’re looking for date night dessert, you want to reward your kiddos with a sweet treat, or perhaps you’re even looking to host a birthday celebration, it’s a must-list destination for dessert lovers (though don’t forget about those yummy sandwiches if you’re searching for a light lunch break!).

With five locations across the island – Shaw Centre, [email protected], Suntec City (ditty no sandwiches and waffles), The Cathay and Star Visa – a chocolate fix is never too far away, mama.
