Xoco por tiXoco understands cocoa essentialists, the passionate ones who only ever order chocolate at the ice cream parlor. Now with two branches in the up-and-coming of Barrio Italia neighborhood, this “chocolate bar” (get it?) takes aim at addicts: the ice-cream selection features eight exquisite chocolate varieties, of varying intensities, all made from cacao harvested in Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, and Venezuela. They’ve also got chocolate-based hot beverages and milkshakes whose chocolate content climbs as high as 85% cacao (e.g., the “Paint It Black”) as well as options for those on a more moderate choco-allowance, which come in around 55% cacao. Two strong suggestions are “Bullet and Target,” featuring European hazelnut crunch, and “Stayin’ Alive,” with aromatic clove, ginger, and cinnamon.

Xoco Por Ti: Santiago's Sweetest Chocolate Bar
The owners, a Swiss-Chilean couple, pour nothing but liquid chocolate. Simply choose the strength (70–85 percent cocoa), milk type, temperature (hot, frappe, or ice cream), and origin: Peruvian, Ecuadoran, Brazilian, or Bolivian.
