Desir Noir: Specialists in Dark Chocolate

Walking the isles of Salon du Chocolat 2014, I discovered Desir Noir...

There are two special things about Desir Noir: The first is that they are the only exclusive dark chocolate producer in Lebanon, and second is that their creations are truly, truly tasty. 


Lamia Salhab has created not only a chocolate shop, but a culinary atelier that welcomes guests for dinner or lunch to privately organized events. You can book your class or a meal by contacting Lamia.

After producing chocolate at home for the last ten years, Desir Noir opened a shop on the Zalka road in 2010. More than 24 flavors await, 24 dark chocolate flavors, all worth trying, piece after piece: Orange, coffee, amareddine, lavender, blackberries, cherries and more.

On the menu:

  • Pistachio
  • Rocher Cranberry
  • Rocher corn flakes
  • Cafe
  • Orangette
  • Dattes confites
  • Noir
  • Green tea
  • Mousse liqueur
  • Giandua
  • Feuillantine
  • Pate amande
  • Caramel
  • Mini menthe
  • Amande
  • Noisette
  • Orange amer
  • Menthe
  • Dattes
  • Figue
  • Gingembre

The lavender pieces have an exceptional aroma, the coffee is so intense it made me fall in love with it and its long lasting aftertaste. The fig chocolate is just something you have to try, just imagine a chewy fig inside wrapped with dark chocolate. DOn't miss their sable with a dark chocolate layer.
