What better way to warm up on a cold winter night than with a cup of Mayan Hot Chocolate form Soma chocolatiers?
Firstly, I’ve never had a proper Mayan style hot chocolate that incorporates chilies into the mix. Secondly, I’ve been told repeatedly that Soma makes the best hot chocolate in Toronto from multiple sources over the years.
And as luck would have it, we strolled right past Soma tonight after a rather enjoyable dinner at Wvrst. We quickly ducked inside and grabbed a couple of drinks to go that wound up keeping us nice and warm on our way to the subway.
And it was absolutely delicious.
I don’t know how I can have hot chocolate without chilies ever again. Their slight bite was the perfect complement to the sweet, rich chocolate they accompanied. The liquid was smooth and velvety all the way down and the foam on top just gave it that little extra bit of silkiness that it needed.
I think I’ll skip the espresso shops nearby next time I go on a cold day and head straight in for another cup of this sweet hot chocolate instead.
