"Chocolate cakes" is something that comes to mind whenever I think of dessert. It's an old classic that'll never go out of style and can satisfy your sweet cravings like no other. There are so many suggestions out there that its impossible to pick and choose. So, here I am, lending you my specialised list of top five tried and tested chocolate cakes in Mumbai that you'll absolutely love.
1.) Dale's Eden, Andheri
Who doesn't enjoy decadent, melt in the mouth chocolate cakes? I'm already drooling while thinking about the day I put this piece of cake in my mouth. It's a cake that's moist and sinfully loaded with rich, dark chocolate ganache. I must say it is one of the most heavenly and delicious chocolate cakes I've ever tasted in my life.
2.) Country of Origin, Multiple outlets
You're lucky to have a readily available list of tried and tested chocolate cakes in the city of Mumbai. And, Country of Origin does take you by surprise in more ways than one. Although they're known for all their uniquely innovative desserts, their chocolate cake is something you shouldn't miss out on. It's a rich chocolate base, topped with an even richer, silkier chocolate mousse. Bye now and get some for yourself.
3.) La Folie Lab, Bandra
A small, quaint outlet with an inviting, open kitchen that doesn't fail to impress is something every instagrammer who loves food is looking for. I personally cannot get over their Tout chocolate cake, made with premium 70% Gunaja chocolate mousse and roasted cocoa nibs. And, guess what? It's flourless and everyone looking for gluten-free cakes as an option can devour this beautifully handcrafted chocolate cake.
4.) Theobroma, Multiple Outlets
The best part of this outlet is that no matter where you are in Mumbai, you'll find Theo, like I like to call it, within a 7 km radius (which trust me, according to Mumbai standards, it's pretty close by). Dutch Truffle is the word that comes to mind when I think of chocolate cakes. It's an all-time favourite among chocolate lovers, therefore if you spot a Theobroma, head in and ask questions later.
5.) San Churro, Bandra
When it comes to chocolate cakes, more the merrier! And, this place beats all with their seven layered chocolate cakes that immediately transport you to cloud 9. If you're not sold on seven layers, their smooth ganache will probably do the trick. No chocolate lover can say no to that for sure.
So, instead of being clueless about the best chocolate cakes in Mumbai, happy tripping on these! Don't take my word for it, go, try it out and tell me in the comment section whether you agree or you'd want to add some of your favourites.
