Mint hot chocolates are somewhat challenging to get right. They can too easily turn out tasting like chalk or toothpaste. The Mint Hot Chocolate at Delish Espresso at 195 Victoria Square was recommended to me. Around the same time one of my readers criticised the Mint Hot Chocolate at Ink Café a few doors South of Delish.
The hot chocolate came in a glass with a dark froth and a dollop of white froth covered with a semi-circle of chocolate powder. The hot chocolate was on the Delish blackboard as "Mint Slice" which possibly infringes the Arnott's trading name for their biscuit of that name. However the drink was reminiscent of this biscuit exhibiting a good balance between the mint and chocolate flavours. The taste of Delish hot chocolate was better than Ink Café, although at $4.60 it was a more expensive drink for a smaller glass.
