WHY Chocolates and truffles made in Silver Lake with skill and taste. If you’re adventurous, try the Aztec (with apricot and three chiles, including habañero) or Kalamata olive; if you’re a classicist, have the straightforward truffle or the dark chocolate ganache with coffee bits.
WHAT Master chocolatier Whajung Park and her husband, Christian Alexandre, turn out some of L.A.’s most sophisticated chocolates at this hidden spot near Beverly and Virgil, in what’s now the ‘chocolate ghetto’ (Valerie Confections is on the block). Some of the best creations are the most exotic, but the traditional chocolates are suave and delicious, too.
