On one of those (far too many for my taste) freezing days, nothing warms me up more than a cup of hot and spicy Mayan chocolate. Delicious! I also would suggest the Bicerin (pictured above) when they happen to have it on their menu. Heaven!
SOMA is a chocoholic’s dream, but it won’t do any favors for the waistline. Tucked into a cozy section of The Distillery, you can count on SOMA attracting cocoa fanatics from every corner of the country. The chocolate selection is extensive and fantastic, while the gelato is wonderfully decadent.
The distillery district in Toronto is one of my favorite neighborhoods. There are chic boutiques and artsy stores, random street art, and yuppie hangouts in the area. One of my favorite stops was the chocolate store Soma. I recommend stopping by and having a shot of deliciously unadulterated hot chocolate. It's thick and utterly indulgent. I ordered mine with some hot pepper to kick it up a notch. And when the staff asked if I wanted a glass of milk with that I said 'No thanks, I like my chocolate unadulterated.'
