As a warm up to the festival celebrating pigging out on chocolate, I dropped into Port D'Anvers down on busy Dixon Street.
Situated adjacent to the information pagoda, this chocolate café right in the centre of Chinatown, is a joint venture between Tasmanian Confectioner, Igor Van Gerwen from Anvers Confectionery and Sydney’s Harbour City Group.
Young managers Victor and Chloe Ho were very keen to explain their product range, which includes decadent fudge based on rich Tasmanian cream and butter, chocolates...
...and a range of drinks.
I tried out their area-appropriate signature Asian Range of four chocolates – my favourite being a dark chocolate with green tea jelly and ginger. Keep it in mind as the perfect post-Szechuan mouth refresher.
