New York, July 19 (ANI): The gamble of keeping the name of shop 'Best Chocolate Cake in the World' seems to have paid off for the owner of this new Nolita eatery - a chocoholic's dream.
It is the first 'Best Chocolate Cake in the World"'store in the U.S., and since it opened last month, actor Benicio Del Toro has already been spotted buying two cakes.
"I just had a food-gasm," the New York Daily News quoted Rocco Cafferelli as saying after taking a bite of the 70 percent cocoa creation on Spring St.
"It was tantric chocolate," he added.
"If I saw Oompa-Loompas in there I wouldn't be surprised," said his buddy Haig Hovnanian, who also lives in Williamsburg, in a reference to the mythical Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.
"It's wonderful," he added.
There are two varieties of cake on the menu: The traditional 55% cocoa, and the bittersweet 70 percent cocoa slice.
"This is awesome," said Luis Cordero from Bronx, after taking his first decadent bite.
"People take the store name very seriously but then they try the cake and I see their reactions, and they say 'Yeah, it's good,'" said store manager Natasha Stefanovic.
"I see people scraping their forks on their plates so they don't leave anything behind," she added. (ANI)
