We visited the Cocoa Boutique on the way to the airport at the end of our trip to KK, not having planned to go there at all. Since we had checked out of our hotel and had some time to spare, my cousin(who lives in KK) suggested that we drop in there as it is close to the airport. I was a bit sceptical at first, not having much expectations of chocolate in Sabah, but was pleasantly surprised.
it's a small place but full of an unexpected and amazing variety of locally produced chocolates with really unusual flavours - durian chocolate and chocolate with chilli to name a couple.
You can taste the chocolates, to get an idea which to buy, and they surprisingly taste very nice - never expected local chocolate to taste so good. And the prices were reasonable too.
The best part is the chocolate decorating activity they have, that can keep kids occupied for a while, and they get to take away their personally decorated chocolates.
All in all, a very pleasant way to spend some time, perhaps on a rainy day when lying on the beach is is not an option!
