In light of COVID-19, we encourage diners to take precautions when going out. You can also support your favourite restaurants by getting takeaway and delivery.

A dip in the thermometer has us craving warm comforts, and there is one indulgent drink that tops all other winter treats – hot chocolate. There are few things as sweet, satisfying and luxurious as a cup of hot chocolate. Once you’ve tasted the good stuff, it’s hard to go back to the powdered variety.

Here’s where you can get your proper hot chocolate fix on a chilly day:

Feather & Bone

A stockist of premium groceries, we’d except nothing less than an exceptional hot chocolate offering from Feather & Bone. Made with vegan and gluten-free chocolate brand Grounded Pleasures, these mugs come with a generous side of fluffy marshmallows. Choose between the original ($45), Sicilian orange ($55) and noir exquisite ($55) versions.

Ralph’s Coffee

It’s probably a good thing that Ralph’s Coffee is only takeaway – otherwise we’d probably sit there all day overdosing on their ridiculously perfect hot chocolate ($60). Their standard hot chocolate is made with the not-so-secret ingredient of 62% dark Valrhona chocolate, considered by many to be the finest chocolate in the world. We also love their seasonal variations, which include marshmallow mocha and peppermint hot chocolate for the festive season.

Black Sugar Coffee

Not only does Black Sugar Coffee win the title of cutest cuppa thanks to its shiba latte art, this hot cocoa ($45) is also one of the tastiest on the list. Made with rich, 72% dark Italian chocolate, this hot chocolate will have you feeling all warm and fuzzy. While this local coffee favourite now has multiple locations around Hong Kong, if you go to their original café in Tsim Sha Tsui East, you may just get to see the real shibas who inspired the brand’s logo and their fabulous latte art.

We all know that two-time Foodie Forks Best Café winner Fineprint serves up some fine cups of coffee, but they also make one of the best hot choccies around. If you’re looking for a slightly sweeter and more milky version, Fineprint’s hot chocolate ($34/$45) is sure to satisfy.

If you consider yourself a hardcore chocoholic, head to Page Common at the Page148 hotel. Their signature chocolate is quite literally overflowing with sweet chocolate goodness. Topped with white and milk chocolate shavings, this Instagrammable drink is ideal for those with a bit of a sweet tooth.

If you want to feel like a kid again, boy, do we have the drink for you! Amongst the speciality coffee offerings at PRESS THE BUTTON, a lovely little kiosk in Sham Shui Po, you’ll find a winter special called Too Much Chocolate ($40). This chocolate drink is served piping hot and topped with a generous portion of marshmallows and Cocoa Puffs cereal. It’s a nostalgic, sugary delight.

Passion by Gérard Dubois

Sometimes good things really do come in small packages. This is especially true when sipping on the chocolat chaud “Passion” ($34), the signature drink of Passion by Gérard Dubois. While you may look at this espresso-sized cup and think, What is this? Hot chocolate for ants?, fear not – this small serving offers just the right amount of thick, gooey melted Valrhona chocolate.
