Entering Choc Republic is a little like stepping inside a chocolate box, and a little like visiting Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. The decor is all chocolate-brown and cream, with cute-as-a-button drawings of cakes and chocolates covering the walls. A churning vat of liquid chocolate greets you just inside the door, with a pipe much too small for Augustus Gloop to fit inside snaking across the ceiling from the vat to the serving counter. This pipe might be purely cosmetic, but there's no cutting corners on this cafe's all-chocolate menu. Choc Republic's motto is "Spoil Yourself," and there's no shortage of ways to do that here. Chocoholics can choose from 56 chocolate treats, from a cookies and cream "choctail" (52 yuan, US$8.20), or a chocolate pizza complete with marshmallows, nuts and melted chocolate (88 yuan), to Choc Republic's signature fruit or marshmallow chocolate fondues (around 100 yuan, serves two). The cafe has been open for two months but has already been proven a success by its Chinese owner in Sydney, Australia. The chocolate is also foreign, the milk chocolate imported from Switzerland and the dark chocolate from France. Customers can also buy boxed chocolates.
