LAUNCH | MoRoCo Chocolat welcomes Chef Eyal Liebman & exciting new menu

MoRoCo Chocolat is known as a popular dessert boutique that specialized in chocolates, located in Yorkville.  I've been there a number of times for their amazing French macarons, high tea or chocolates - oh, I also had brunch there once but it wasn't memorable. When we were invited for a relaunch of their dining menu by their new chef, Eyal Liebman (founder of L is for...) we were intrigued as to he will elevate the dining experience to this dessert focused boutique!

If you haven't been to this whimsical space you must! The outdoor dining as well as the inside is decorated with beautiful and playful furniture and interior pieces.  Their chocolate boutique offers customer favourites such as hand made french macarons, chocolates, truffles, and more. You can custom order macaron towers as well!

French trained Pâtissier, Chef Eyal Liebman create visually appealing plates with primary focus on the flavour and texture. Although he the presentation and the skills of his desserts show innovation, he strives to preserve the fundamentals of Classic French cuisine. With him leading the MoRoCo Chocolat cuisine, you can expect deliciously creative menu items that will stimulate your senses.

Here's a recap of the new menu we sampled at Bubbles & Bites:
