1. Fu Wan Chocolate

This award-winning chocolate shop is famous for its tea chocolates and ‘tree to bar’ methods. Here you’ll find the richest, sweetest and most carefully crafted chocolate in the country. We recommend the charcoal roasted oolong tea with a few dark chocolates or a ruby-black tea with creamy cocoa pieces. You’ll find this fave in the Da’an district.

Known as one of the best chocolatiers in the country, Yu Chocolatier is the real deal.
