Forget the traditional bakery
image; awfullychocolate looks like a simple, white
boutique. There aren't even cakes displayed. Is
this deliberately being mysterious? Actually no,
so they don't dry out they are stored in a refrigerator
to maintain freshness. Awfullychocolate hails
from Singapore and was welcomed by a crowd when
it opened its first BaDe retail outlet in February.
The second branch opened in Tianmu, adding pillows,
acrylic tables and warm lamps for a cozy feeling;
great for friends to enjoy time together and,
of course, savor the rich and fragrant flavor
Music by sweetheart singer Stella
Huang is easy on the ears. Her simple principle
of selling cakes is to make them delicious. "Awfullychocolate
has it's own personality. It is like going with
no makeup; it doesn't need fancy decorations to
dress it up and is very confident with itself."
Cakes here are sold whole, not by the slice.
Awfullychocolate's chocolate cakes come in the
three flavors of All Chocolate (500g NT$580),
Chocolate Banana (750g NT$650), and Chocolate
Rum & Cherry (800g NT$690). Store these at
a temperature of five to six degrees Celsius and
consume within three days.
