October 29th, 2012. Ruben’s Chocolates
Ruben’s Chocolates on Brew Street in the Sutterbrook complex of Port Moody has always been on my radar, but blame that being close often puts things off I’d never actually even been inside the place! I guess the other reason for that is that they always seem to be closed when I get the urge 😛
It’s a warm little establishment with gelato and an assortment of artistic chocolates, cupcakes and a few other sweets.
I was surprised to see that they actually had a real chocolate “wheel” behind the counter! I knew then and there that I must try a hot chocolate!
A mixture of the melted chocolate and steamed milk, I have to say…I was slightly disappointed as I would have liked to taste more richness and chocolatey-ness from my beverage..but it did have that great authentic feel to it and at least it wasn’t the watery kind of hot chocolate you get at most places.
All in all it’s a nice little chocolate shop and I would definitely come for another visit and hopefully try some goodies 😀
