The chocolate cake was so delicious – the slightly tart flavour of the berries on top helped to cut through the sweetness of the rich chocolate icing and chocolate cake beneath. The cake was slightly burned on the outside, however this was not a bad thing at all, the thin shell of caramelised crust along the bottom edge was delicious.
As usual, I ordered peppermint tea (not pictured), which helped to prevent the cloying sweetness that sets in with most cakes. I ate just over third of this portion with relish and would gladly return to try another cake there!
Quick summary of my visit:
What I didn’t like: Milk and chocolate spilled in the bottom of tea glass, cramped seating, staff very busy.
What I liked: What I ordered was good (chocolate cake and herbal tea), interesting decor and trinkets to look at whilst dining.
Just a random story – I went up to the two guys in the background of the first photo, told them I would be taking a photo but assured them that they would be blurred out and not to worry. One of the guys smiled and said “yeah suuure, we get that all the time.” Heh.
Have you been to Boucla? If so, what did you like about it? :)
