Chocolate Buzz at Café Fleuri

[tweetmeme source= “Veggiewala” only_single=false]

Have you ever been drunk off of chocolate? I have. I didn’t even think it was possible until I went to Café Fleuri at the Langham Hotel Boston. Their Saturday chocolate buffet was full of all kinds of delights – mainly chocolate but some non-chocolate as well. All of the desserts were organized around a theme (as if they needed one aside from unlimited chocolate), which had to do with the neighborhoods of Boston. Represented were the North End, Chinatown, Beacon Hill, Faneuil Hall and Fenway.  The spread included items like dim sum, five-spice chocolate soup, cannolis, tiramisu, bread pudding, crepes, chocolate pizza and pasta, crème brulée, cupcakes, cookies, mousses, jellies, tarts, fresh-spun cotton candy and a chocolate fountain. My favorites were the Chinese five-spice chocolate soup, the egg custard dim sum, the crepe station and the croissant bread pudding. The most intriguing item – chocolate pasta – turned out to be extremely devoid of any flavor, chocolate or otherwise. While the chocolate bar is offered during brunch hours (11a.m. – 3p.m. on Saturdays), I would highly recommend eating something non-sugary ahead of time. This was the first meal of the day for most of the members in my group, and afterwards, we all felt kind of woozy and unfocused. Those of us who got a chance to nap woke up with a hangover of sorts. Those of us who didn’t, well, let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.
