For months this coffee, chocolate, and gelato shop in Yanlord Landmark had an, “Opening Soon!” sign out front. A few weeks ago the doors were open, but they were only doing a soft opening, and were serving coffee and chocolate truffles for free. The staff promised their official opening would be in December. We popped in again recently and saw a counter full of chocolates and a few desserts, but were told we still need to wait another month for the gelato. The desserts on offer were a brownie, a piece of cheesecake, and a cream puff trio. They were all attractively plated, but didn't look as inviting as the chocolates.

Koko has a map on the wall showing the world's chocolate producing regions. The server told me the chocolate was all from a single origin, imported from France. They were featuring a very attractive special with one coffee and one dessert, or one coffee and three chocolates for 58 RMB. I decided to go with the special so that I could try a few of the chocolates and selected a white chocolate and lemon, vanilla caramel with milk chocolate, and a dark chocolate filled with a brandied cherry.

The chocolates were made with obviously high-quality ingredients and good attention to detail. Each flavor was bang on natural, with no trace of fake vanilla or too-sweet chemical fruit. The dark chocolate and brandied cherry made a very intense and adult combination. The smooth vanilla caramel was not overwhelmed by its milk chocolate coating, and the white chocolate was a perfect foil for the tangy lemon filling. The latte was good, above average for Chengdu. Koko is a great place to drop in for a treat or a shopping break. They also sell chocolates at 15 RMB per gram, which works out to 10 to 15RMB per piece. We can't wait to come back and try the gelato.
