So, we made it to Kee's Chocolates. This is a different kind of chocolatier. The shop is tiny, the signage small and packaging simple and non descript. Well, what does that mean for the chocolates themselves. The chocolate case has about 16 different chocolates, each with an approachable uniqueness. The chocolates vary from creme brulee to tamarind to green tea. These chocolates are interesting in that their descriptions are the draw, the texture is incredible, fragile as blown glass shell and a silky almost molten pudding interior. The only flaw is they do not always deliver on flavor. The tamarind does for sure, though the creme brulee is more of a vanilla pudding. It misses on the burnt sugar flavor. The Earl Grey and Green Tea chocolates speak of the complimentary ingredients while a few chocolates I consumed tasted of just great chocolate. I searched my mind and palate for the distinct seasoning associated with these chocolates without resolve. You see, this shop is small, not bothered with packaging and the like so there is no chocolate Rosetta Stone. Either you have a photographic memory and can visualize the case arrangement at home or you rely on the flavor of the chocolates. I guess one should just rely on the chocolates and hope that all the seasonings are intense enough and balanced to speak to the palate.
All in all a great chocolate inspiration.
