Welcoming service, luxurious atmosphere, and authentic Hungarian home-cooked food, is what you can expect at Mamor Chocolates & High Tea Szalón.

Located at 153 Johnston Street in Collingwood, Mamor is well known as one of Melbourne's top venue for high tea and hand crafted chocolates, however offers much more. Everything from a decadent nine course High Tea in the Szalón, Chocolate Walking Tours around Collingwood and Fitzroy, and customised Hen's Night with a Burlesque lesson and topless male waiter, to elegant private dinners for groups of eight or more, and the new rave of Pheromone Parties which offer a scientific twist in finding your soul mate. These events can be booked for every day of the year.

An annual speciality, the owners and gracious hosts of Mamor Chocolates & High Tea, Drs Hanna and Howard Frederick, hold a romantic Taste Love Valentine's Day Dinner for couples on February 14th. For $80 per person, each couple is greeted at the door by Dr Hanna, then seated on a plush Baroque lounge or intimate table for two, and welcomed with a glass of French champagne before commencing the five course Taste Love menu. All items are freshly hand made on site by Dr Hanna herself; the menu begins with a Chilled Sour Cherry Soup, sweet in taste for sweet beginnings with your Valentine. Next, Tomato Aspic with Fromage Frias shaped in a romantic love heart surprises with a savoury bite.

Matched wine arrives with two mains; first, Filet Mignon with a special Mamor Chocolate Chilli Sauce, accompanied by a refreshing Mango and Romaine Lettuce Salad, and a Mixed Spice Rice - flavours to add a hint of spicy romance to your night. Second, Mushroom Goulash atop a bed of Spetzel Dumplings for a feeling of comforting home-cooked goodness. It seems the Drs were casting a spell on the couples with a well thought out menu evoking senses of romance, sensuality, and love.

While you will have to wait until next year to enjoy the Taste Love experience, the home-cooked authentic Hungarian cuisine can be enjoyed year round by booking a dinner reservation for groups of eight or more. The Szalón can seat 45 people, so why not reserve a night of tantilising tastes and quality entertainment. Whatever your party needs are, the delightfully entertaining couple are sure to try to accommodate to make your experience a perfect one.
