Cocoa Lounge recap
How did the Cocoa Lounge do? I went last night and let me tell you the chocolate was divine. For $18, you can indulge in an all you can eat chocolate buffet. It's located at the Palm Terrace restaurant at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach.
The restaurant decorated the back of the restaurant in white curtains, blue lighting, and chocolate signage. Various tables were set up with mini desserts ranging from cookies and cream pot de creme, lemon truffles, port truffles, margarita mousse, chocolate stout pudding, chocolate covered bacon, chocolate eclairs, chocolate peanut butter bar to white chocolate strawberry parfait.
My favorites had to be the almond cake with chocolate ganache, Mexican chocolate pot de creme and white chocolate citrus bar. And this is based on trying everything, mind you.
