When it’s time for a date night with your girl, you always have to hit up something that is chocolate-infused. It’s a rule somewhere, I’m almost positive – it’s against your constitutional rights if you DON’T get chocolate together. Again, you’ll thank me later.
Ultimately, date night with JJ consisted of a bowl of endless pasta, a glass of wine and then churros at Amara Chocolate & Coffee in Pasadena, CA. I kept it simple, got the Solo Pa’ mi with chocolate dipping sauce. My girl JJ took it a step further and got the churros with dark chocolate & fruit. It was an absolute pleasure grabbing dessert there. The storefront is a bit small but we didn’t have any trouble finding a table off to the side. The service was great, I even got complimented on my shiny nails; now that I think of it, I’m still not sure if the cashier was hitting on me but I appreciated the compliment nonetheless.
Best part of the churros, they were fresh out of the oven – it’s making your mouth salivate, isn’t it? The fruit was fresh and the chocolate, ohhhh the chocolate – absolutely amazing. I must admit, I didn’t try the dark chocolate but the milk chocolate dipping sauce was delicious.
So, tip for all the gents out there or all the ladies that want to share a delightful dessert – Amara, do it and think of me!
