CHOCOLATE and coffee lovers can indulge at the newly launched LaVile du Chocolat cafe at Aeon Taman Maluri Shopping Centre.
The cafe is inspired by Orando Holdings managing director Datuk Eng Wei Chun’s travels to Venice, Italy.
He is also a coffee and chocolate lover himself.
“The mood was just right when I was in Venice with my wife as I thought of this cafe idea while sipping Italian coffee.
“I loved the coffee so much that we decided to sell it at the cafe as well as artisan chocolates which are my daughter’s favourite.
“We use coffee beans from Italy, Portugal, Madagascar and Malaysia, ” he said.
As for their chocolates, Eng said no preservatives were used and they conducted research and development to ensure only the best is served.
“The chocolates are infused with flavours such as green tea, dark chocolate and liqueurs, ” said Eng.
He added that the artisan chocolates were crafted by chocolatiers using premium Belgian and French chocolates.
The flavours of the month are Yam White Chocolate and Green Tea White Chocolate.
“This branch in Aeon is located next to the Maluri LRT station and is just 10 minutes from KLCC, making it a convenient location for everyone, ” he said.
Meanwhile, doodle artist from Star Media Group Sarah Salim’s intricate art pieces are also on display at the cafe.
Her elephant doodle is printed on the packaging of LaVile du Chocolat products.
Sarah said her doodle art was mainly inspired by animal characters such as owls and are currently displayed for sale at the cafe.
“My dad Alex Selvaratnam who is 80 is my biggest fan.
“He wanted to visit the cafe, which is now beautifully decorated with my art pieces but could not make it due to the recent spike in Covid-19 cases nationwide, ” said Sarah.
The winners of the LaVile du Chocolat cafe slogan and logo competition were also awarded cash prizes including Kong Pui Ling, 33, who took home RM1,088.
