Best Of Amsterdam #11 – Chocolate bars

I’ve told you about this shop many times before, some of you know it as ‘the dealer’, and others as Chocolàtl

Just as their website, Erik Spande likes his shop clear, clean and simple. Most of the interior is his own design in which he used simple natural materials.

Most of the chocolate bars are made of single estate chocolate, sometimes with a delightful mix of fruit, vegetables, salt and/or bacon. Erik really takes time for his customers, he can answer their questions in seven languages, including Dutch, which is exceptional for an American who’s been here only a few years.

Next to coffee he sells the best hot chocolate milk. Every cup is handmade and no artificial ingredients! Try the one made with 65% cocoa [my favorite].
