Dip It — Dip It Real Good
W Hotel is serving up gooey melted chocolate for the rest of winter — and a new range of cocktails to go with it.
If there's ever been a dish that's tailor-made for winter, it's fondue. Sure, it instantly conjures up visions of the 60s and 70s, but dipping fruit, marshmallows and more into hot, melted chocolate is as timeless as it is delicious.
The same applies to the cheese version, obviously, but Living Room's new winter menu is all about keeping it sweet. Yes, W Brisbane's resident bar getting both gooey and chocolatey this year — between Thursday–Sunday each week, starting at 4pm, from Thursday, July 15–Sunday, August 29.
Designed for two people, the $59 fondue set lets you and a date or mate stick strawberries, blueberries, bananas on skewers, marshmallows, macarons and churros into a tub of Valrhona chocolate. If that's not enough, marble brownies and gold-topped waffles are also on the menu.
And, if you're looking for something to wash it all down with, there's a new cocktail range just to go with the fondue. For $38, you ca sip a hot toddy-inspired tipple for two that's made with elderberry vodka, pomegranate syrup, cranberry and lavender,
bitters and strawberry cream black blooming tea — and comes served with an edible gold sheet. Or, the suitably named Death by Chocolate features toasted coconut chips, a bourbon infusion, almond milk, Guatemalan drinking chocolate and cinnamon syrup, as well as a cookie coated with gold cocoa butter that you can dunk into it.
