Belgian Hot Chocolate at Petite Abeille

A lot of the time when you order hot chocolate, you get Swiss Miss and water.  Or, if you are lucky, steamed milk with Hershey's syrup.  Now, if there's nothing else around, and if the Swiss Miss/Hershey's to water/milk ratio is high enough, I will happily drink that.

Sometimes, though, you get something that is basically melted chocolate, super thick, and filling enough for two meals.  Or maybe you'll get something completely unsweetened.  Or maybe something fancy, with a scoop of ice cream in it.  These are typically my favorites.

But sometimes you just want hot chocolate.  You know.  With milk and chocolate.  That's what we have here:

hot chocolate by candle light, and i set myself on fire fewer than two times.  success.

Petite Abeille is a lovely little spot in the West Village (along with spots in Chelsea and Flatiron).  They have waffles.  They have Tiny Flemish Pancakes.  Whatever you are picturing right now, they are tinier, and probably more Flemish.  It's a good scene.  And they have hot chocolate.  It's worth a trip.

Bottom Line: When you make hot chocolate from milk and chocolate, good things tend to happen.
