As an ingredient, chocolate adds richness, depth, and a touch of indulgence to our creations. Whether it’s the velvety smoothness of Chocolate Trio or the decadence of a Melting Mocha cake, our restaurant uses the best quality chocolate to elevate the taste and experience of our products.
Apart from its delectable taste, chocolate has been known to have positive effects on mood and well-being. It contains natural compounds like phenylethylamine, which can promote feelings of happiness and relaxation. Additionally, chocolate is a source of antioxidants, which can help protect against free radicals and support overall health.
On this Chocolate Day, Bombay Cartel invites you to celebrate the magic of chocolate.

The chocolate orange espresso martini is a delightful and indulgent cocktail blending the classic ingredients – chocolate, orange, and coffee. I love its rich taste, the sweetness of chocolate, bright citrus notes of orange, and the bitter undertones of coffee. At a brunch or cocktail party, this drink has a great energizing effect due to the caffeine content of espresso. It is extremely versatile and serves as an indulgent treat or dessert-like drink as well. Are you ready to sit back and enjoy the combination of these luxurious flavours from Kikis?

Chocolate or Cocoa is rich in antioxidants such as phenols and flavanols, which help protect and heal the skin. In fact, cocoa is said to have a higher antioxidant capacity than even green tea or black tea. Thus when it comes to skincare, chocolate helps repair damage caused by free radicals, promotes new cell production, and keeps the skin healthy and radiant.
Cocoa butter, a fat extracted from the cocoa bean and used in making chocolates, also makes for a greatly nourishing ingredient for the skin. It is enriched with essential fatty acids such as Omega 7 and Omega 9, that deeply moisturise the skin and maintain an even tone. Cocoa Butter is also rich in vitamins such as Vitamin A and E that further nourish and protect, making this ingredient a good choice for dry skin.
