Cocoa Boutique Matic, Kuala Lumpur
I remember growing up learning Malaysia is a cocoa producer. In recent years, cocoa plantation might not as popular as palm oil plantation but there are a few emerging local chocolate companies in Malaysia and Cocoa Chocolate Boutique is one of them.
I am lucky enough to visit a few chocolate factories (outlets) in Australia and learnt more about chocolates. However, you need to travel far now as there are a few outlets in Malaysia. They are local Malaysian owned Cocoa Boutique. They have a few outlets in Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Genting.
Cocoa Boutique Matic.
I was invited to visit their outlet in Malaysia Tourism Center (MATIC). It is ideally located for tourists who are looking for information on tourist information of Malaysia in MATIC. With the backdrop of KLCC and KL Tower, this was my first visit to a Chocolate Gallery in Malaysia despite staying here for decades.
Introductions to Chocolates 101 at Cocoa Boutique Matic.
The Cocoa Boutique was packed with visitors. Coincidently I bumped to bus load tourists from Vietnam, Hong Kong and Indonesia. They were given a simple introduction of cocoa and chocolate in respective languages. I was impressed by the multilingual staffs of Cocoa Boutique.
There were exhibits of chocolate products of different shapes and sizes. The most notable one was the sculpture of the twin dragons.
Every visitor will be given free samples before entering the chocolate boutique. It was their commitment to let the customers to taste before they buy. Like I mentioned, most of their staffs were bilingual and very friendly.
The chocolates available in Cocoa Boutique were unique and creative. You can purchase the usual chocolates of milk, white or dark chocolates but if you want something with Malaysian touch, this is the right place to go.
