Is it just me or is the hot chocolate in Prague out of this world?! After consulting some other expats, I’ve come to the conclusion that Prague should be deemed the Hot Chocolate Capital of the World. There is just something different about the way Czech people do hot chocolate. So many restaurants in Prague simply refuse to accept the status quo of hot chocolate with the standard mix of coco powder with milk. They make their own version of hot chocolate, all with a different spin, and let me tell you, they are doing it right. Here are my top 3 favorite hot chocolates:
Have you ever made chocolate pudding on the stove, gotten a little overexcited and tasted the pudding while still cooking in the pot? If so, then say hello to the hot chocolate at Café Louvre. If you answered no to that question, can you imagine how good that might taste? Either way- Café Louvre’s masterpiece of hot chocolate is the best hot chocolate my 20 year old self has ever tasted. It is like chocolate fondue in a cup, but better. No matter what the temperature, this rich and thick hot chocolate will always hit the spot. 2. Chococafe Well, in case the name didn’t give it away, this place means business. They are a chocolate café, and let me tell you, the hot chocolate is divine. Less thick than Louvre hot chocolate, the Chococafe spin offers a flavorful and incredible chocolaty taste with excellent homemade whipped cream, and even topped with a piece of waffle cone. Now that’s what I call unique. 3. Radost While Radost is not the only restaurant I have seen this offered, this type of hot chocolate is not only yummy but a fun little experience! You are served a mug filled with hot frothed milk, and along side it is something resembling a chocolate lollipop. You then must put this chocolate into the hot milk, and swirl it around. With every swirl your milk transforms into hot chocolate. The fun? You can taste the hot chocolate at all different stages of your swirling extravaganza. Some may like it less chocolaty, some like it with as much chocolate as possible. No matter what though, you get a different taste each step of the way, each more delicious than the last.
