[Tokyo] Cacao Sampaka KAKAOSAMPAKA (カカオ サンパカ) Chocolatier Kitte Shopping Mall - Marunouchi

After a day of shopping and sightseeing, stopping by Kitte Shopping Mall for a treat is definitely necessary. We went to Cacao Sampaka (カカオ サンパカ), a chocolatier that specializes in delicate treats.



Cacao Sampaka is pretty posh and most items are pretty expensive, given that it is in the upscale Marunouchi neighborhood.

It serves a cafe food and drink menu, pastries, and other cold treats. Cacao Sampaka's claim to fame is its chocolate, so you have to make sure you save room for some, you can also have it in liquid form. It is also quite well-known for its drinking chocolate and thick hot chocolates.

We got the set menu, which included one chocolate soda with raspberry sorbet and one chocolate, with gold leaf.

The chocolate soda was super unique, in my opinion. It is clear, so you are expecting not much flavor, but what you get is a very rich chocolate flavor. As the sorbet melts, the chocolate flavor is married with the subtle raspberry flavor.

When you bite into the chocolate, you know that they mean business. It is definitely made of high-quality ingredients and you understand why Cacao Sampaka is the chocolate supplier to the Spanish royal family.

I highly recommend the chocolate soda for a very unique treat.
