I'm feeling slightly lazy today so no food review but rather than dissapoint all of you, here's my tip of the day. Don't worry, it's just a temporary glitch in the week and I'll be back with food reviews the next day.
If you love chocolates and Japanese flavours like green tea, you will want to head down towards Hartamas Shopping Centre to try this. Meiji, the major Japanese chocolate brand has a new line of chocolate known as Chocolife. There's a total of eight flavours: chocolate (60% mass), black sugar, milk, orange, strawberry, green tea and etc. I've only managed to find the Japanese website to it as per this link which shows the Japanese television commercial for the chocolates.
Till to date, this is the only place I know which is selling it (I know Isetan does not stock this range) and each bar costs RM3.50. Kinda pricey as there's only four squares but we were curious on how it will taste like. Besides the Chocolife range, they also have the Meiji dark chocolates with 99% cocoa mass. So far, we have tasted the green tea and orange flavours. Didn't really like the orange one as I kinda expected it to be dark chocolate paired with orange but it was white chocolate instead. The green tea is much better.
Drop by to try it and if you're a Japanese food lover like me, you'll be fascinated with their other food items too. Incidentally if you love white plates, crockery and glass cake stands, the Esque and Alfresco people are back. They'll be selling their wares there until the 18th of March so you can pick up great deals to stock up your house. This was the place I found really good deals for my cake stands.
