Meltdown Artisan

Darlinghurst's new artisanal chocolate shop specialises in unexpected flavour combinations.

Chocolate is one of those wonderful, universally indulgent things that is difficult to beat for comfort or a treat. 2019 has seen the creation of the epic Meltdown Artisan, the brainchild of Jen Lo, formerly of north shore dessert haven Bakedown Cakery.

With her new space dedicated entirely to experimenting with chocolate, Lo runs chocolate making workshops alongside a shop floor stacked with sugary goodies. You'll find indulgent and creative interpretations of cocoa-based goodies — think saffron barberry, yuzu ginger apple and wakame sea salt.

The chocolates, which come both in block form or creative shapes (think koalas, robots or snowmen) are great for gifts — even if they're for yourself. The interestingly titled face bark, a white chocolate slab designed for customers to print images of their choice upon, is a standout. Vegan and dairy-free options are also available in a wide variety of interesting and tasty flavours, meaning there's something for everyone at this sweet new Darlinghurst hangout.
