Today, for the first night of Hanukkah, Mariene and I decided to treat ourselves to the famous hot chocolate at Angelina's (JK, we were planning on going anyway)!

Lemme just say that I was very happy -- the 7.20 price tag per person for this hot chocolate was well worth it. I had heard that it was like drinking melted solid chocolate...and it totally was. As in, our little pitcher came with two cups worth for each of us, and it was so thick that I couldn't even finish my second cup.

I've heard people say that Angelina's is touristy (true, but only in that we barely heard any French being spoken by the other customers) and that there is good cheaper hot chocolate in Paris (probably also true), but I think that if you value chocolate in liquid form, Angelina's is definitely a must-do the next time you're in Paris if you've never been there before. We went to the Rue De Rivoli location, and the fancy decor definitely added to the deliciousness of what we were drinking. Mmmmmm. It was literally one of the best things I have ever tasted.


  1. Oh wow - that looks amazing. I had this incredible hot chocolate in Florence when I lived there and it's never been matched - next time I'm in Paris I'll have to try this one!
