Decadence, thy name is chocolate
By Gary Lukatch
Remember Juliette Binoche’s wonderful shop in the movie Chocolat? Remember running your eyes hungrily over the yummy-looking delights on display in her windows? Remember how her chocolates affected people in that little French town? Guess what, ladies and gents – Budapest now has its own equivalent of that little Chocolate Shop, an unassuming place named Rózsavölgyi, that rivals anything and everything seen in the movie.
Just a little way down Királyi Pál utca, off Egyetem Tér, the city’s newest, tiniest shop is nestled in a cozy niche you could easily pass by without noticing if it weren’t for one thing: the chocolates in the window won’t let you. I defy anyone who loves chocolate to pass this shop without going in and salivating over the myriad of beautiful, tempting chocolates on display and, as a result, buying as many of them as you can carry.
Katalin and Zsolt have brought the art of chocolate-making to a new pinnacle in their shop, open since late 2008. All of their wares are homemade, and they gleam and glisten and shine with a dark and dusky hue that literally screams, “Take me home!” The award-winning confections on display are truly striking and only add to the chocolate addict’s pleasure at finding this shop.
