As I expected, The Best Chocolate Cake in the World did not serve the best chocolate cake Iâ€™ve ever had. The dark chocolate cake was way too sweet, so I donâ€™t even want to imagine what the original chocolate cake tastes like. I did enjoy the candied outer crust, but again, it was way too sweet. The 70% cacao advertised by the friendly counterperson didnâ€™t come across in the cake at all. Unfortunately, the only real indication that I was eating chocolate cake was the color. I love the concept of a flourless chocolate cake. The average American chocolate cake is just too dense without much real chocolate flavor. Unfortunately, Iâ€™ve never had an exceptional slice of flourless chocolate cake, but I believe that it exists! If a restaurant has the balls to include the word â€śbestâ€ť in its name, it probably doesnâ€™t live up to the superlative description. The â€śbestâ€ť builds hype, but the restaurant still has to deliver. To be fair, The Best Chocolate Cake in the World does fit the classy dessert shop mold with its glass cake stands, 2-person rose-tinted mirror tables, and a quilted cushiony banquette.

This cake has the perfect amount of crunchiness when you need it, soft gooey chocolate, ETC. Lets just put it this way, IM NOT A CRAZY FAN OF CHOCOLATE..THE MORE THERE IS THE MORE I DISLIKE IT. this was NOT overpowering chocolate, it was SO WELL BALANCED. WOW! BRAVO! THEY DID IT..AND I HIGHLY HIGHLY REC. IT!!! The only bad thing? Small slices+a little pricey (around $6 bucks a slice)... but if you want quality, then def try it. AMAZING.
