New dessert bar
Move over Max Brenner. There's a new chocolate cafe in town, Coco Jungle Chocolate Lounge, located at Sunnybank Plaza.

After catching a flick at the Sunnybank cinemas, I decided to treat the kids to some chocolate indulgence. A recent addition to Sunnybank Plaza, the Coco Jungle Chocolate Lounge stands outs amongst the Asian eateries in the food court. Inside the cafe, away from the bright lights and noise of the fast-food counters, the decor is modern and cocoa coloured; from the milk chocolate floor tiles to the dark chocolate booths. Gorgeous, green, textured wallpaper and animal prints adorn the walls and tie in with the jungle theme.

Seeking a mid-morning refreshment, I ordered a latte and a Coco Jungle Fondue for two ($18). I was assured that this would be enough for three children, and it was. The kids devoured it in no time at all; strawberries, bananas, marshmallows, banana bread, and Dutch pancakes dipped in dark Belgian melted chocolate. Okay, I helped a little.

While devotees of Max Brenner might be disappointed, Southsiders will go loco for Coco Jungle. The prices are comparable, there are no line-ups (yet), and it's conveniently located. And just like the bald man's menu, Coco Jungle's is loaded with sweet treats: churros, crepes, and Belgian waffles served with chocolate sauce, fresh fruit, and ice-cream.

Italian hot chocolate is available in three levels (weak, normal, and thick) with more than twenty flavours to choose from. There's classic, dark, and white chocolate as well as mint, tiramisu, orange and cinnamon, and chilli. Kids are catered for with babycinos, hot chocolates, milkshakes, and iced chocolates.
