Old-fashioned shopping is the name of the game at Josophan’s. The staff here sport crisp white coats, white cotton gloves and approach the individual packaging of your chocolates as if they were precious stones. Each one is placed first in a little paper cup before they are boxed up in glossy white containers. Then comes the chocolate-coloured, French satin ribbon with gold printing. It’s uncommonly attentive service but it’s not exactly swift, so allow some time for your visit and remember that your patience in the queue will be rewarded with equal care for your purchases. The glass display case holds chocolate walnut shells with a whole nut embedded in the centre, little rainbow trout finished with pearlescent edible paint and chocolates with all manner of traditional and exotic fillings like chilli mango and pineapple, caramel and coconut. Our picks are the little hives filled with a rich honey caramel and the Tahitian vanilla bean with a dark-chocolate ganache.
