Story & Recommendation
At Dandelion Chocolate, their bean to bar chocolate making starts from raw coffee beans
Close to Kodai-ji Temple, on the top of Ichinenzaka-hill, you can find the chocolate specialty shop Dandelion Chocolate Kyoto Higashiyama Ichinenzaka, a place that specializes in handmade bean-to-bar chocolate. This chocolate brand was founded in 2010 in San Francisco, and now they have shops in Tokyo in Kuramae, in front of Ise Grand Shrine in Mie Prefecture’s Ise, and Kanagawa Prefecture’s Kamakura. And on April 26, 2018, they opened their first shop in the Kansai area, in the atmospheric area of Ichinenzaka. The shop is designed carefully; there is a Japanese garden, the tables and chairs are wooden, and the atmosphere warm. On the back corner of the first floor, you can find a first for Dandelion Chocolate: a Cacao Bar. Bean to Bar Ice Cream is your chance to have a complete chocolate experience; you get to have three different ice cream flavors, one made using cocoa beans, one with cocoa nibs, and one with the finished product, chocolate. They also serve alcoholic drinks made with sake, rum, and others, so you can enjoy the pairing of drinks and chocolate, and the rich taste the drinks bring out in the ice cream. This shop offers chocolate cakes, and many things you can buy to go, so if you like chocolate, this shop is sure to be worth a pilgrimage.
