Tuck into chocolate churro tacos, boozy choc martinis and more.
June 11, 2019
If we can celebrate Christmas in July, then we can also do the same for Easter. That's what's on the agenda at Portside Wharf on Sunday, July 7, with the inner-north spot breaking out the sweet treats at its first ChocFest. Chocolate is a year-round treat, after all — and this particular date marks World Chocolate Day.
The choc-filled lineup is hefty, and includes favourite desserts, inventive dishes and everything in-between, with the precinct's cafes and retailers thoroughly getting into the swing of things. Fancy some chocolate nachos and choc churro tacos? A honey crumble shake to wash them down with? Chocolate biscotti and cannoli? Salted caramel tarts and cherry rice slices? Two decadent chocolate cocktails? Thanks to everywhere from the Burrito Bar, Hello Harry and Belvedere Bar N Grill to Cruisers, Gusta da Gianna and Byblos, they're all on the menu.
The folks from Mayfield Chocolates will also be on hand, serving up their choc goodies — and if you're keen to digest your feast over a fitting film, that's on offer too. While ChocFest runs from 10am–2pm, Dendy Portside will be putting on the perfect movie at 2pm: Chocolat, obviously.
