Fab Drinks, Desserts and Mexican Cuisine at Xocolat

A week or so ago, I had my first visit to Xocolat Posh Mexican Cuisine in the pleasant company of @momwhoneedswine, @terrylo_calgary@frauleinskierka and @mscglouie.

The service was great! Sergio Ledesma and his staff were very helpful in explaining the menu items which were unfamiliar to me and in providing recommendations. I appreciated the quality ingredients, emphasis of flavours and use of spices in the dishes. In addition to the authentic Mexican cuisine offered at Xocolat, remember to leave room for their beautifully presented drinks and creative desserts. Seriously, the drinks are so pretty to look at.

In particular, the Pie de Mango stood out for me and it now stands as my new favourite mango dessert in Calgary. In addition to being visually stunning, the contrast in flavours and textures of the mango, cotton candy and marshmallows layers melded wonderfully.

At the end of the meal, you are also treated to a complimentary tequila chili chocolate truffle. Yum! I’d like to go back with friends to try the Late Night Menu available from 10PM-2AM.
