Chocolate-tastic Hackney

This is from Time Out:No sooner has Dalston got used to new boutique Avo Hotel than it hosted a pop-up chocolate salon laid on by local (Stoke Newington) chocolatier Niko B. If you missed the salon catch Niko B at Saturday morning’s Netil Market. Also at Netil is Jaz & Jul’s which hand-makes drinking chocolate out of a little powder and a lot of Grenadan organic chocolate with flavouring such as mint (surprisingly good) chilli and ginger. If you can’t wait for a fix Coco&Me – known locally for an ace flourless chocolate cake – does a fine hot brew on Broadway Market proper. Further down you can get a stand-your-spoon-in-it Spanish version at the churros stall.Links:http://www.nikobchocolates.com
