Heaven is a Place On Earth

My ten year old friend couldn’t believe I’d never been to Max Brenner, and positively dragged me there on Sunday.  Thank goodness for her fine taste.  You walk in the door and suddenly you’re inhaling chocolate.  It’s a classier Wonka-land, with vats and tubes of liquid chocolate, but no neon (or decapitated chicken slideshows).

Of course chocolate pizza is classy!

There are three menus.  The children’s one is pictured below, and includes a chocolate burger, alongside my personal favourite – a huge syringe filled with chocolate you can squirt in your mouth.  Disgusting/Delicious? You be the judge.

I had the chocolate pancakes (from the adults menu, because I’m mature like that).  I just could not stop smiling.  Half the fun is pouring the liquid choc over it yourself and making a terrible mess.

My friend went for what sounded like a healthier option – the Tutti Fruity crepes.   Rather than actual fruit though, they arrived studded with Gummi Bears.  She wasn’t too disappointed…
