At Coconama Chocolate, our concept is simple: the finest chocolate, the best ingredients, and a creative fusion of global flavours. The result: fresh handmade chocolate creations that are indulgence at its purest. Chocolate is famous for its sensual qualities: the richness, the fragrance, the harmony of bitterness and sweetness, and the melt-in-your-mouth smoothness. But an extraordinary new world of chocolate decadence is yet to be discovered, with inspired flavour combinations giving the familiar delicacy an edgy fresh twist.

} catch(err) {}Yesterday evening I had the chance to attend the grand opening of Lolo Restaurant in North Vancouver. The restaurant specializes in small plates and flatbreads. To those there is a selection of wine, beer and other drinks. We were offered a selection of spreads on flatbreads (which are made at the restaurant). We tried celery bonne femme, silky chicken liver, spicy spinach, Moorish fava bean and mint, and smoked salmon on flatbreads. They were all very tasty, and went well with the wine I was drinking, which was the Barefoot Cellars Pinot Grigio. It was crisp and refreshing with peachy, citrus flavours.

I had a chance to speak with the General Manager, Michael Moller. He has a lengthy professional background, and has worked at the Beachhouse at Dundarave, Hart House at Deer Lake, proprietor of Gambrinus Restaurant, Northlands, the Observatory at Grouse Mountain, and many more! He has been a national finalist in the Sopexa Foods and Wines of France sommelier competition 3 times in the 80’s and 90’s. Michael is an easy to speak to person, with lots enthusiasm for this restaurant.

So if you are in North Vancouver, drop by 100 East 2nd Ave. Enjoy!
