Theobroma - coming soon to 1 Utama Shopping Centre

theobroma

While catching up with Jackson, he spilled the beans on what is up and coming in 1 Utama. Definitely a wealth of information, we discovered from him that Robert Harris Cafe is no longer in business. Instead, it will be replaced by this interesting new place - Theobroma Chocolate Lounge.

The franchise is from Down Under and from the posters, it seems there's chocolates as gifts, belgian waffle, fondue, drinks, snack food and etc. Sounds like a chocholic's dream come true. I guess we can expect it sometime in July, as the renovation schedule stuck on the wall said it expires early July.

What else can we look forward to? Seems Giant is on the way out but replacing it is their sister co - Cold Storage. Loads of changes down that area, as more kiosks for food coming up there, some shops closing down there and yes! the rumours are true - Krispy Kreme is also opening there. Will be interesting to see the shop and taste those delicious doughnuts. They have a fascinating story (so good that a book was written, which I bought and read) that I am curious who has managed to get the franchise.


Updated - 26 June, 2008. Seems I should not wonder anymore, as an article on Business Times claims Berjaya is the franchise holder. I presume so, as the writer obviously has no idea how to spell Krispy Kreme!

there are actually quite a number of chocolate places down under..actually havent heard of this 1 yet..but looks good enough to warrant a try, that is if i m willing to drive all the way to 1U!

Krispy Kreme has the BEST donuts hands-down!!! This will be the greatest news of THE MONTH!!!! Oh, I cannot wait!! Do pls pls pls, notify us when it's open. Silly to be poking in to 1U everyday just to see if it's there yet. Heehehhee...

I hope KokoBlack (the ones from Australia) opens here soon. Their chilli chocolate drinks are the nicest chocolate drink I've ever tasted! Do you know where I can get chilli chocolate drinks here? Been trying to find one since ages.

And SUPER YAY for Krispy Kremes! They truly are the best donuts ever! OMG CANT WAIT!

myCoffee said...

Wow, the chocolate place looks yum. Wonder when exactly are they opening.

Oh, and fyi, KK is brought in by the same ppl who brought in Starbucks. ;p

jasmine said...

ooh, thanks for the heads up. should be fun to visit 1u in the future.

Ming Suan said...

The people who brought in Starbucks - isn't that Berjaya???? Darn. Looks like i still might have to throw some ringgit their way when we come home end Oct. Thanks to you, I can pretend I was never away as far as the food scene is concerned!!

Criz Lai said...

Wah... who is staying in PJ or Bandar Utama? I would want to bum in for a week since 1-Utama would be having so many new restaurants opening :P

boo_licious said...

Joe - wait and see the reviews I guess before you drive to 1U since it is quite far for you.

Lai Lee - dunno when they are opening though. Guess you will know when the queues start...

adrian - I can imagine how long the queue is, completely impossible!

ling239 - wow, every wkend! You can keep an eye out for KK for us all.

izad - ooooh, chili choc sounds wickedly delish. Don't know where we can get some though.

mycoffee - hmmmm, is that confirmed? I heard the rumours abt that, spoke with them beginning of this year, and they said they don't have it. Don't tell me, they did something and managed to get it eventually.

Jasmine - now getting into 1U is so much easier too, less cars after the petrol hike.

Ming suan - u enjoy life in Beijing mah, sounds good! Must plan for a trip to visit that place as food is damn good there.

Criz - wait till they open, then u make a trip. There's always One World Hotel, next to it?

ling239 said...

oh, ok....^_^
my weekly assignment then hahahaaa...

mimid3vils said...

Will the Q at JCo become shorter after KK come in?

Spot said...

For a second there I read "theobama" and thought "obama chocolate now? Too much!"

boo_licious said...

ling239 - yeah, every week u do status report, ok?

Mimi - I think the queue is quite short already.

Spot - LOL! It could be called obama choc, but isn't that racist?

Squirrelicious said...
