Just like many countries in Europe, Hungary takes its hot chocolate seriously. In many cases, when you ask for forró csokoládé or forró csoki (its shortened name), you will receive a concoction that combines real melted chocolate with heated thick milk. Yum!
The most intense forró csoki I’ve had so far was at the chocolate festival I attended in September. Coming in at a close second is the forró csoki at Noir Chocobar.
Tucked away in the sixth district, this hidden gem serves sandwiches, desserts, and other items, but the real reason to go is the forró csokoládé. You can select your type of chocolate and then have an essence, alcohol, or spice added. The selection is varied and plentiful. I ordered a dark hot chocolate with Baileys. Luxurious. Velvety. Intense. Delicious!
