Chocolate by The Shop, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

This chocolate shop is located from a short walk from The 240, where I spent my last night in Phnom Penh on my recent trip.  A big glass box displays and refrigerates 3 levels of chocolates.  The workshop is behind a glass partitioned room at the back, so you know the chocolates are as fresh as can be.  You can buy by the piece which was about USD $ 1.00, much cheaper than what you can find in HK.  I especially appreciate the fact that Griet, the owner/ GM, incorporates local ingredients into the chocolates such as their praline with white pepper from Kampot, a southern province in Cambodia.  It was actually the first time I tried chocolate and pepper together, and they go surprisingly well together!

A glass-box-full of goodies!

The Chocolate Shop is located on the G/F of an old colonial building.Display case and the workshop at the back.
