    In early 2014, the famous Ritz-Carlton hotel challenged their pastry chefs worldwide to create a cake to epitomise the hotel’s establishment that would represent the brand’s promises of luxury, pleasure and prestige.

A unique balance of sweet, fruity and bitter flavors, it is perfect as a dinner party gift.

    What might seem like an innocent chocolate cake actually packs more than meets the eye. The deceitful appearance is just a façade for an ensemble of 12 types of chocolates, binding to form one decadent and ambrosial dessert. A saucer of hot chocolate sauce is also rained on the cake for a richer texture and a touch of dramatic experience.

    Mad About Coco

    A newcomer to the food and beverages scene, the catchy name itself calls out to all chocoholics. Half of the menu is devoted to everything draped in chocolate while the remaining half concentrates on mains such as pastas, burgers and sandwiches. Their signature cake, eponymously named Mad About Coco, is a moist circle of chocolate cake topped with a thin disc of chocolate, stamped with the trademark retro afro motif. The cake is served with hot fudge, a side of sliced strawberries and cookie crumbs. The idea is to pour the hot fudge on the hard disc so that it melts, like lava filling every nook and cranny of the earth, singeing your senses with pure chocolate ecstasy!
    Tips

    The café has both indoor and outdoor seating available. Perfect for date night. Get plenty of serviettes. It will get messy!

    Things to expect

    Loads of chocolatey goodness.

    Best with

    Mad About Coco with Iced Coffee.

    Ben'sPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    It’s no surprise that the well-known food store in Kuala Lumpur also runs a self-named restaurant. Ben’s offers plenty of definitive cakes and The Classic Chocolate Cake makes it to our list. A three-layer chocolate pound cake sandwiched with dark chocolate ganache in between and iced with plain chocolate glaze. Prior to serving, the cake is warmed, allowing the ganache to soften. Served in a pool of warm chocolate fudge and a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream, this contradicting combination of hot and cold will make you say yes, not no!
    Tips

    For takeaways, do inform the staff to keep your cake chilled to prevent the chocolate from melting.

    Things to expect

    Indoor and outdoor seating available.

    Best with

    A hot cup of long black to balance the sweetness from the chocolate ganache and the cold vanilla ice cream.
