Written with a sincere heart and sheer gratitude, the following article is a token of thanks for Doughnuts, Waffles, Cheesecake, Mousse and our beloved Chocolate, for being there with us through thick and thin, a true friend and a sweet escape.
Desserts have been a significant part of the meal since ancient civilisations. While they seem to have evolved in terms of preparation, ranging from the first ever apple pie in 1381 to innovative truffles and soufflés today. The one thing that has remained constant, is our love for something sweet that inevitably brings a smile on our faces!
I do not hesitate to say that most of us would be more than willing to dive into a chocolate delicacy regardless of what time of the day it is. With due respect to our mutual undying affection for dessert, we bring to you a list of palatable desserts to fulfill your craving, any time of the day !
- Chocolateria San Churro, GK-1
Find your way to this Spanish bakery and I’ll place a bet (All In, if you must know!) that you wont be able to resist yourself. The Chocolate Fondue is a guilty pleasure with a pot of melted chocolate surrounded by marshmallows, strawberries, brownies, pretzels and churros! If the season is winter, the order can include a cuppa hot chocolate! Brimming with the magical fragrance of cocoa, couple it with your favourite book and you wont budge for hours.
- Elma’s, Hauz Khas Village
Pancakes for a change! :P
Vintage décor, hanging lights, classic wall paintings and everything exquisitely English ! This is your place to share a huge slice of your favourite cake and indulge in a peaceful conversation. The Red Velvet Cake is touted as the best in town and a slice of Blueberry Cheesecake ain’t did nobody no harm, eh ?
- Theo’s, Sec-50, Noida
Divine delight to the eyes, that’s what defines this place most aptly! A lesser known fact about this place is it’s relation to the much loved Theobroma bakery in Mumbai. With an exotic selection of cheesecakes, macaroons, puddings and tarts, Theo’s sets your heart pounding as you bring yourself to choose among the many.
As a personal favourite, the Centre Filled Chocolate Doughnut and Mini-tarts are always a bundle of joy. The Walnut Pie and New York Cheesecake will also sweep you off your feet!
- Wenger’s Deli, Connaught Place
Who wants Waffles? Lol, who doesn’t? Located in the heart of the city, Wenger’s has been serving us with scrumptious and one of a kind Chocolate Eclairs, Nutella or Blueberry Waffles and Floure Tart. Easy on the pocket and super-good on the taste buds, Wenger’s qualifies as an all-time favourite for the sweet-tooth!
Food attack, just got real!
The love for food is such, that nothing is ever enough. So while I remain loyal to the ‘love of my life’, you all must enjoy yourselves over a bite of that oozing chocolate and be thankful to God. He gave us the vanilla pod and cocoa plant, is there anything better ?
PS- Feel free to spread and share your love for food and let us know your favorite places to satiate a dessert craving! *foodforlife*
