Schokolart Hand-Made Swiss Chocolates, Cakes & Desserts @ Solaris Mont Kiara

Few days ago I had an invited dinner at Schokolart, a restaurant and lounge specializing in hand-made Swiss chocolate and chocolate inspired cuisines. Now who would say no to chocolate, lol. Like a popular quote goes, “9 out of 10 people like chocolate. The 10th person always lies”. Even the restaurant’s unique and catchy name, Schokolart is spelled to to sound like chocolate with an emphasis on the word ‘art’.

chocolate-almond-kiss

After being briefed on the food Schokolart‘s menu had to offer, we started off with two drinks that came highly recommended. The drink in front is Chocolate Almond Kiss, a concoction of Frangelico (a hazelnut and herb-flavoured liqueur), Chocolate Ice Cream and Vodka @ RM28. Even though I am not a drinker, I found the taste somewhat resembling Bailey’s Irish Cream (the only liqueur I have ever had) but more chocolatey.
The other drink we had was Schokolart’s signature shake – Soulmates @ RM16.90. Soulmates is prepared by blending dark chocolate ice-cream together with peanut butter then topped with whipped cream. I liked this chocolatey and peanut buttery drink a lot because it was sweet and had a right consistency. To differentiate the alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks in Schokolart is simple, those that come in hurricane glasses are alcohol free.

pumpkin-soup

Pumpkin Dreams @ RM9.90 was another recommended dish, basically pumpkin soup topped with melted cheese and served with herb croutons. The soup was smooth and thick and tasted great, just like how a good soup should be. Some grated ginger was also present in the soup, giving a hint of spiciness and warm feeling to your stomach.

pan-fried-salmon

Next was our main course – De La Mer, a dish consisting of pan fried salmon fillet and Swiss Roesti served with special Hollandaise-wasabi sauce. In this dish alone there were two new things to me: Roesti and Hollandaise sauce. An explanation ensued and it seems that Roesti is potato pancake and is considered as a national dish in Switzerland. Hollandaise sauce on the other hand is a French sauce made using butter, egg and lemon juice that is usually served on asparagus (where the salmon fillets are sitting on).


de-la-mer-salmon-roesti

In my opinion this dish is very worth the price tag it carried @ RM24.90. Just look at the huge salmon fillets alone, need I say more? lol.

swiss-roesti-sausage

Another Swiss Roesti dish we had was Baseler, which was a huge serving of Roesti pan fried with fried onion rings @ RM12.90. For this dish, three types of German sausage (Hot Jalapeno, Cream and Cheese and Chopped Onion and Chives) can be chosen as an accompaniment. Of course, this is totally optional @ RM5.50 per sausage ordered.

german-sausage

Truth be told, I enjoyed the German sausage more compared to Roesti because it was packed with flavor and oozed cheese in the middle. I guess I am more of a meat lover lol.

chocolate-satay

Expect to find a lot of unique chocolate inspired dishes at Schokolart, like lamb with chocolate sauce and this dark bittersweet chocolate marinated chicken satay. Looking at this, I have to say Schokolart is very daring in creating their very own signature dishes especially when it involves Satay – a dish so popular in Malaysia it can be considered a national dish. So, the recipe had to be darn good to be able to impress someone like me who have tasted some of the best Malaysia satays. Schokolart’s Satay is priced at RM20.90 for 5 sticks.

schokolart-satay

Taste wise, it didn’t disappoint but it sure felt weird having satay marinated with dark chocolate, I am not gonna lie here. After all, all of us grew up eating roadside satay stalls. To really feel the chocolate taste, you shouldn’t dip too much of the sweet satay sauce because the sweetness will override the chocolate flavor. By the way that was the first time I tasted meat cooked with chocolate, simply unforgettable.

tealicious-choc

We concluded our meal with two cups of hot chocolate made with imported Swiss chocolate, like Tealicious Choc – Earl Grey Tea infused with hot chocolate @ RM13 and La Esmeralda – a Mexican hot chocolate spiced with chili powder and frothed with cinnamon syrup @ RM13. Both drinks are very chocolatey especially La Esmeralda, which left a slight throat-stinging aftertaste from the chili powder.

    Food for the curious and adventurous. The chocolate flavour sate is a welcome sight. And the chocolate inspired drinks is heart-warming. I still prefer it in liquid than the solid state.

    Are that two cups of hot chocolate placed slantingly or it’s the cup itself that is purposely designed so?

    probably the only place in KL that makes *real* hot chocolate. would def come back for that.

    Roesti was not too bad. Unfortunately the mushroom sauce that came with it was sub-par.
    De La Mer was OK, but not worth the 26 bucks.

    BTW, Swedish for “chocolate” is choklad. Not sure where the store name came from.

    why do you label it into halal category? Didn’t you said there was vodka? Also from the bar you can see alcohol. Hope you better be careful next time. Nice blog though.
