Juliette et Chocolat [Montreal]

The ever famous Juliette et Chocolat is a favourite stop in Montreal! There are several locations around Montreal and if you're a chocolatier, this will be your heaven!

Where: 3600 Boulevard Saint Laurent
Montreal, QC
Price: $$

You can buy chocolate truffles to go or eat them there!

Very cozy and elegant interior

This was 8:30 on a MONDAY night! We had to wait 5 minutes before we got a table!

The kitchen area

Strawberries, vanilla ice cream and whipped cream crepe ($11.75)

The crepe was a thin, crispy golden sheet generously topped with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, fresh strawberries and a sprinkle of cinnamon. The crepe was actually paper thin and so, so good. Juliette et Chocolat's menu has an extensive menu including a crepe that involves lighting rum on fire and pouring it all over the crepe!

The Balsamico Brownie ($4.35)
Dark chocolate brownie, raspberry and a balsamic reduction
The brownie was incredibly decadent and the texture is unlike any brownie I've ever had before, it literally just melted in your mouth. The chocolate flavour was very evident and was intense and velvety smooth. What really completed this brownie was the balsamic reduction which actually brought out the sweetness of the brownie but gave an overall tart aftertaste to the brownie. Absolutely delicious!

Gianduja and Lime Mousse ($5.99)
 This was the least worth it IMO.. nothing too spectacular or worth writing home about. The lime wasn't too prominent and the base of this was quite hard..

Traditional Chocolate Drink - Semi-Sweet ($5.90)
Think of this as a hot chocolate.. minus the milk. It was literally like drinking liquid chocolate but I don't know how they made it so.. drinkable! They also have different types of chocolates for this drink as well such as chocolate with hints of spices, or a green-tea infused one. Pretty interesting to try but it can get pricey! Some of the chocolate drinks go up to $12!!

Dulce de leche and pears ($7.99)

Their crepes definitely reign superior in my books! In this case with the pears and caramel, it was such a perfect match.

Passion Fruit Petit Pot ($4.45)
I cannot even begin to explain the Passion Fruit Petit Pot which is delicately composed of three layers: chocolate mousse, liquid chocolate and a passion fruit jelly at the top. When you first open the jar, a huge whiff of passion fruit hits you. When you first taste that first spoonfull, its sweet and tart all at once. The first dip of that spoon is perfection. You get the decadent chocolate taste and ends with a nice tart passion fruit note at the end. This little jar was way too small and I cannot even stress how delicious this was. Definite winner of the night.

If you're looking for a solution to your sweet-tooth craving, this is the spot for you!
