Truffle Chocolate: A Collection of Truffles and Sweet Delights

I came across a place called Truffle Chocolate on Instagram. To my happy surprise I found them at Le Salon du Chocolat. I was so excited to taste and feel their creations… And let me tell you that they do have good chocolate truffles.


In 2012, a truffle story began. Today, the shop offers a selection of more than 30 different truffle choices of which maamoul mad, dark chocolate, classical, hazelnut, cashew nuts, cheesecake, and many others, reimagine our relationship with truffles.


The company uses Callebaut, 70% dark chocolate, to make your experience a unique one. I liked the class of the decor, the stylish presentation and the violet color, which gives the space an upmarket feel.


Other than that, you can choose between wrapped and unwrapped chocolates, a large collection, which includes chocolate-dipped sablés, biscuits filled with chocolate cream and enveloped within a layer of dark chocolate. I also enjoyed the white cones, filled with rose water, pistachio and white chocolate. Even though I'm not a fan of that white thing they call chocolate, I enjoyed the sweetness and smoothness of this cone, which melts aromatically. 


Their truffles are all good. Intense in flavor, they melt under the teeth in style. I loved the dark selection and the aromatic creations, with had a sure Lebanese touch. 


I have to pass by their shop in Beirut, hopefully I’ll do that soon.
