Ernie needed his chocolate fix at NYDC (because it's not available in Hongkong) so we headed to Wheelock Place after dinner at Tung Lok Signatures. The stalwart on the 2nd floor of Wheelock Place has just undergone a facelift. The cafe looks a little sexier, and a little more grown up, with its dark woods and contemporary finishing. NYDC also welcomed a few additions to their already extensive repertoire of sinful desserts and classic American grub.
As they were out of The Boney Cake, we got the next best thing, the Chocolate Lava Cake ($8.90)a warm chocolate cake with a luscious molten centre that erupts with chocolate "lava" when sliced. This was topped with icy-cold French Vanilla Ice Cream.
Ernie got the Double Trouble Down Under ($10.95), two scoops of double chocolate chip ice-cream piled high with bountiful chocolate chips, cookie crumbles and crushed Oreo cookies. This was finished with hot fudge and a cherry. I thought that was way too much chocolate, but Ernie, the fervent chocolate lover, obviously thought otherwise.
