Best Drinking Chocolate Los Angeles 2012 


Demitasse in Little Tokyo has a lot going for it — fantastic pour-over coffee, awesome Kyoto iced coffee, good pastries. But it's possible we'd pass all that up for a cup of the café's outrageous drinking chocolate. Made with E. Guittard Cocoa Rouge cocoa powder mixed with Tahitian vanilla, the drink then is imbued with a drop or two of lavender oil. The hint of lavender gives it a wild floral finish, and the result is a deep, rich, thick, dark chocolate that will stain your teeth and woo your heart. A marshmallow, blow-torched to order, comes standard with the drink, but we prefer it without so as to better enjoy the perfumed chocolate itself. 135 S. San Pedro St., dwntwn. (213) 613-9300, cafedemitasse.com.
