Hand-rolled Truffles

The shop seats seemingly ordinary at first glance. Unassuming. The glass that separates the house of sweets from the outside refracts the day light, creating a glossy tint, which eventually reduces the transparency. You could not get an apparent view of what is actually inside. The Chocolate Chamber Boutique Behind the fragile walls is The Chocolate Chamber. Initially, you may wonder if it either sells your favorite Belgian chocolates or Read more

I peeked outside and immediately recognized that we were close [to our destination]. I did a quick fix; Read more
