The Dark Gallery is a popular chocolate-themed cafe from Malaysia that specialises in all things chocolate and good news—they have just opened their first outlet outside of Malaysia at Millenia Walk.
Expect to savour a wide variety of chocolate desserts from artisanal ice creams to pastries to truffles to the best hot chocolate you will ever taste at this chocolate-themed establishment. The sheer decadence from the chocolate goodies makes The Dark Gallery every chocolate lover’s dream and a must-try for all.
If you find yourself overwhelmed by the immense variety of chocolate types, feel free to approach the staff. They will be more than happy to educate you on the different types of chocolates
We found it rather helpful as it gave us a better understanding of what we were having, allowing us to better appreciate the subtleties in flavours from chocolate sourced from different parts of the world.
The Ice Cream Waffle (S$14) comes with two ice cream flavours of your choice. We went for two different dark chocolate varietals with cocoa percentages from both extremes—the Madagascar Dark Chocolate (64%) and the Venezuela Dark Chocolate (72%).
Both flavours of ice cream were so incredibly decadent and we liked that they were not overly rich and sweet. The Madagascar Dark Chocolate struck a perfect balance between sweet, bitter and chocolatey, whereas the Venezuela Dark Chocolate was just slightly bitter in comparison. It was the best chocolate ice cream we have ever had.
Most of the hot chocolates at cafes usually taste more like Milo than hot chocolate so we were pleasantly surprised by the hot Signature Chocolate (S$7) here.
It is the epitome of a perfect hot cocoa before bedtime. It was rich and chocolatey with just the right amount of foam, making each sip so comforting.
The Signature Frozen S’mores (S$7.50) has a chocolatey center and it contains 80% dark chocolate ice cream. It had just the right amount of bitterness to it, and the sweetness from the toasted S’mores complemented the entire dessert really well.
Our first visit was truly a delight and coming from avid chocolate lovers, we must admit that The Dark Gallery hit all the right spots. We liked that their desserts were not overly sweet, allowing more emphasis to be placed on the depth of flavour.
The Dark Gallery is conveniently located at Millenia Walk and it makes for a good stopover during afternoon shopping trips or even a spot that chocolate lovers might find interesting to visit.
