The Art of Hot Chocolate

YYC Hot Chocolate Fest is on all month throughout town, so we went to get our fill of rich and interesting takes on hot chocolate yesterday. Sadly, I was defeated after only two mugs of sugary goodness. Weak, I know. But we did cap off the evening with a house made uni (sea urchin) ice cream from Ikemen Ramen House, which was awesome.

The blueberry flavour was a nice touch. It tasted like eating chocolate covered blueberries.

Turmeric and Black Pepper Hot Chocolate, from Red Bush Tea and Coffee Company.

Fans of spiced chai would particularly like this concoction, with the turmeric and black pepper complimented with strong notes of cinnamon.

House made Uni ice cream (Sea Urchin), from Ikemen Ramen Bar. It was expensive, but wow, incredibly balanced sweetness of the ice cream with the subtle flavour of the uni.
