I generally seek out and review pure d. chocolate. When I’m in the mood for filled/flavored chocolate, though, I love an occasional raspberry truffle. Sorry, orange-chocolate lovers, I’m not a fan. Raspberry and chocolate is something, though. Bistro Bar’s Raspberry Rendez-Vous was a delicious find among other bars at Fog City News. The shop itself was a truly pleasant experience. I’d read about it several times and added it as a must-do on my adventure list when going home to California. It is a tidy shop with numerous bars, filled chocolates, and infinite magazines. I couldn’t think of a better Saturday afternoon stop-in. It turns out that the Fog City people are acquainted with the folks at Biagio (from my stomping grounds in DC). Of all things chocolate does, it brings people together.
Back to Raspberry Rendez-Vous. It’s an adorable bar! It has just a small enough amount of raspberry truffle in each square to bring out the treasured sweetness and tang of the berry. The chocolate is complex and smooth. And of all good things, it reminds me of the delicious cake at our wedding. Flavors–10/Design–10/Giftability–10
