It has been more than 6 months since I came home from my last holiday trip to both Taiwan and China. I visited multiple cities in within my 11 days of vacation. I was in Hong Kong (for a short transit), Taipei, Shanghai, Tianjin and Beijing.
My last stop was Beijing whereby both Sister and I took the bullet train from Tianjin. We were in Tianjin for 3D2N as Sister was assigned to a work trip there. It was far more convenient to commute to Beijing from Tianjin than Shanghai. The journey from Tianjin to Beijing was about an hour and a half. If you travel to Tianjin from Shanghai, the journey could last about 4 to 6 hours with bullet train.
Anyways, I am not here to ramble about how far is Beijing from Shanghai but I am gonna do a food entry on Godiva Cafe. Both Sister and I tried one of the Godiva Cafe in Beijing while we were wandering around Xidan North Street after our Korean dinner.
To be honest, I am no big fan of chocolate but I still have my moments. Those moments were like once in a blue moon. I wasn’t having a craving back then but it was the name Godiva which tempted me to try as I heard Godiva made the best chocolate? Correct me if I am wrong but I think preferences are subjective.

This is basically a Chocolate Fondue but the Chinese named it as “Chocolate Hotpot”. Frankly speaking, I think this was the first time I tried Chocolate Fondue. I had always wanted to try Chocolate Fondue at Swensen’s but no one was interested in joining me.
But that was before. If you were to ask me if I am interested trying out Chocolate Fondue, I might think twice before agreeing. Just think of the calories count and I am pretty sure you will shake your head and decline the invitation. LOL!
We had Dark Chocolate Fondue. There wasn’t any small candle underneath the fondue pot. We did inquire the waitress about it. Reason being, the chocolate might “burn” under a burning fire. So, what they do is, they melt the chocolates in the kitchen and serve you a warm melted chocolate.
Verdict: All in all, I love the Chocolate Fondue from Godiva. The chocolate was rich, smooth and creamy. The ambiance was good too. We see a lot of youngsters having meet up wit friends in the cafe.
