Situated in East Los Angeles, on West 1st street, is L'Artisan du Chocolat. This little shop is a haven for those seeking innovative chocolates, made on-site the traditional French way, by owner Christian and his talented wife and Maitre Chocolatier, Whajung. With flavors such as Rose Petal, Tomato, Kalamata Olive, Dark Jasmine, Curry/Kiwi, Aztec Chili/Apricot, and Hibiscus, I could have honestly sat there all afternoon trying everything.
They do chocolate tastings as well and during business hours, Christian personally serves each truffle himself, while Whajung creates her works of art in the kitchen. It's worth it to go out of your way to try this place.
