Cocodash by Cocoraw, Bangsar


When I first heard about Cocodash and Cocoraw, I was excited to give it a try. In summary, Cocodash & Cocoraw produce local artisanal chocolate at affordable prices.

Right now, in its only physical store at Cziplee, Telawi Bangsar, Cocodash serves chocolatey drinks to go and quick snacks. Customers can also purchase their amazing chocolate here to take away.

Drinks are made fresh for you. The combination of the chocolate, milk and ice (for hotter days) is a winning combination. The iced chocolate is priced at a reasonable RM11.

When I dropped by the stall, I got to try the iced chocolate, their homemade brownie (RM6 each) and the Panna Cotta.

The iced chocolate was so good - rich but not to the point you wouldn’t be able to finish it on your own. It was a good balance of chocolate and milk.

The brownie totally blew my mind. It was so moist and every bite only proved to be better than the last. They warmed up the brownie for me, so it was a good contrast to the iced chocolate drink I had. It would have been so perfect if it was served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. I also liked he fact that they use Fallaleaf bowls! Ever since I interviewed the founder of Fallaleaf, I’ve always been a fan of his dinnerware.

The panna cotta was also nice - surprisingly light and not too sweet. I love the simple, minimalist presentation here at Cocodash that also speaks for its mission to be as eco-friendly as possible.

While I was there, I also got to taste a few of their signature chocolate nama truffles like the teh tarik flavour and my favourite, 70% dark. You can get a box of 12 pieces for RM19 for the Row 70 (dark) and milk chocolate flavours, while the special signature flavours are RM20 per 12 pcs.

The gin and limau nipis flavour of nama truffles were also a winning combination! I could taste the gin swirling in my mouth with each bite, with just a hint of that sour lime aftertaste. That was a delight!

Cocodash works with local craft producers of chocolate, like Seniman Kakao. In Malaysia, these producers are far and few between with less than 5 operating in the local market. Cocodash uses local chocolate in some of its products. The owners behind Cocodash hope to bring a different offering to the table. They want to introduce locals to the unique flavour profile that only our local cocoa can achieve.

Overall they hope to sell better quality chocolates at accessible prices to Malaysians.

Cocodash 1, Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, 59000 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur Open Monday, Wednesday & Thursday from 12PM-8PM Fridays and Saturdays from 10AM-8PM
