The notion of a chocolate-filled menu might seem gimmicky, but the team behind Hotel Chocolat mostly pull it off, reimagining a Saint Lucian plantation house where roasted cacao dominates the food and cocktail lists. The look is colonial yet modern, with both floors (ground and first) decorated in warm cocoa colours. We sat on the upstairs balcony with pleasing views over Borough Market. A giant Yorkshire pudding filled with cacao-glazed pulled pork and white-chocolate mash epitomised comfort food; we also enjoyed the gloriously rich potted shrimps in spiced cacao butter. A well-balanced dish of cacao-crusted pork cutlet, with crackling, in a garden-mint cacao sauce followed, yet we were unconvinced by the dipping sauces (chocolate balsamic, cacao pesto, and nib butter) accompanying the fries. As expected, molten chocolate lava pudding, with gooey centre, was a highlight. We left choc-full, melted by “efficient and friendly” service and a Rabot Rum Sour cocktail.
