Dinner at ANGELINA @Capitol Piazza

I've been super excited about Angelina's opening at Capitol Piazza cos I can finally try the signature Hot chocolate drink that resembles melted chocolate bar in a cup! Finally managed to go with a friend during the X'mas festive season.

The restaurant cum retail store has two entrances, one from outside directly into the retail shop, and the restaurant from inside the building, which is an open concept design. The decor is a replica of the charming century old tearoom from Paris, exuding elegance and refinement from the Belle Epoque era.

The serving staffs here are all formally dressed and well versed with the menu (food menu changes from time to time) and dishes. I immediately ordered the Angelina's Hot chocolate $13++ (for one pax), served with whip cream on the side.

The pricey beverage contained in a tiny teapot serves two portions of dark chocolate drink in a regular teacup. Sipping this on its own is like drinking melted chocolate bar, insanely thick and indulgent. Add in the whip cream to smoothen the texture and lighten the thickness for a more enjoyable experience!

Complimentary bread was served before my main course. I had the Pork Rack $35++, served with garlic potato purée and honey mustard cream sauce. The pork chop was nicely done, tender and juicy despite its thickness, very delicious.

It's dessert time! Since the famous Mont Blanc had not-so-good reviews, we decided to avoid it and ordered the Éclair Chocolat $10++ and the Tarte au Citron $10++. The eclair, laced with dense dark chocolate ganache, wasn't overly sweet. And, the lemon tart was refreshingly tangy-sweet, a delightful way to end the pleasant dinner!

Angelina is indeed a nice place to chill and hang out with girlfriends over a cuppa and sweet treats. The iconic Hot chocolate is to-die-for for all chocolate addicts, it will be my must order for my future visits. Having said that, the main dishes are highly recommended too. Do check this place out if a Paris holiday is not in your plans in the near future.
