Schokolart. SohoKL, Solaris Mont Kiara, KL. Willie Wonka's Factory in KL.

(No Pork Served)

Selamat Hari Raya to all Muslim Friends and Maaf Zahir Batin!

Chocolate... The sticky gooey, sweet glob that had the ancient Aztecs driven to frenzy and lust. A dirty word to Matronly Chinese Aunts who have blamed it for rotten tooth, sore throat, pimples and cough adding guilt when indulging in this intriguing blend of cocoa and milk. When I read about it from LL's blog, I groaned to myself. Not another Max Brenner clone with cocoa powder on fries i hope? One fine Sunday, I hopped from work early and punched in my GPS and surprisingly got there in a jiffy! Anyway, I loved the catchphrase in their website. Hedonism is Schokolart! 

The place was surprisingly quiet for a weekend and I sat at the patio, which had a great view of the new DUKE highway and a view of the infamous Matrade Building. The evening breeze was lulled me and I felt like taking a snooze there! They had a lot of varieties of chocolates there, from curry to sesame and the pastry selection drove my heart aflutter. It seemed Willie Wonka had found KL and had a free hand in making this place his factory.

My fear was unfounded and they were not over the top with their chocolatey concoctions a la Brenner. No cocoa dusted fries here! The Roesti seemed to be featured prominently here but Carbs are getting a bad hype and I chose the Chocolate Satay instead. It was the most exotic item in the menu and was recommended by Sean.  Other items are Roesti, Lucerne Pie, Deep Fried Chicken with Chocolate Dip and De La Mer.

The chicken pieces were marinated in Chocolate and the Satay Sauce was kind of like a peanut butter blend which was spicy as well. I was a bit skeptical because Satay is kind of like a National Institution here. But it was not too bad at all! Very hard to describe the taste, but the chocolate did not overpower the still moist and succulent meat... And it came with the Man Tou thingy. I was surprised it. Ha ha... Something new everyday! Will go back there to indulge in some hedonistic gastronomic orgy aka to stuff my face...

Oooh... messing about with national institutions...will Schokolart have to contend with the latest trivial debacle over who owns what food?

Ha ha ha... Might spark off a war! Don't you hate it when politicians try to make up for poor statesmanship with rabble rousing? Now they want to politicize food!
