Chocolate Heaven

If you're anything like me, with a title like that, you're already hooked (:

A few nights ago some friends and I went to my all time favorite restaurant, La Fondue. It's definitely special treat type of place, as it's pricey...but luckily one of our friends works there so we were hooked up (:
Have you ever had Fondue? 
I loveeee it. It's fun, interactive and totally delicious. We went in for some good ole chocolate fondue...the best type.
But first I got a Strawberry Daiquiri...
Make that a virgin one, promise! (:


It kind of looks like a dog bowl full of food, but it's really milk chocolate with English Toffee. YUM!

I forget what's going on here, but it seems like the waiter was pouring fire into the fondue?! Amazing.

On top of the chocolate being straight from heaven, the restaurant is also just amazing. Your eyes don't even know where to land.  There's textures, graphics, and all sorts of fun design going on.  Take a look:


Aluminum one arm chairs...very similar looking to ghost chairs:

FAB wallpaper and mirrors:

Beads:

Black and white floor:

Sparkly floor:

Favorite part of the whole restaurant are the stunning chandeliers:




Another favorite part? My bestie was there (:  It took us at least 10 shots to get this one...we were laughing way too hard in the first 9.


Hope you enjoyed the little tour of La Fondue! If you're ever in the Bay Area, it's a mustdue....get it? Yep, I thought it was funny (:

Have a terrific weekend!
Love,

  1. Fun! What a great place. We have a few fondue spots here in Atlanta too. Our girls love to have fondue. We usually do a hot oil fondue (chicken, beef, veggies) for Christmas or New Years Eve.

    Speaking of, I found your blog through nicole's and I was so happy to find ANOTHER fantastic one! Right now i'm thinking of doing up my room (but not majorly), but I'm having problems with coming up with an idea since my walls are cream, my furniture is brown wood and my bed...ok everything just doesn't match BUT my point is you've given me a lot of hope and inspiration! can't wait to trawl through your blog when I have some more time :)

    Keep up the grat work, I'm following you :)
