Modern Dwellers Chocolate Lounge offered attractive and unique truffles, with artfully blended flavors and textures from Alaska. I was really looking forward to trying the salmon truffle in particular, and I was not disappointed. For those who enjoy mixing salty or smoky flavors with chocolate, I recommend this one. The anchovy truffle was a beautiful irridescent blue and topped with a crunchy little fish (pictured at right). I enjoyed the Indian Bop very much. The Tokyo Tango had just the right amount of ginger, nori, and wasabi nose burn for my taste; but then I like wasabi. The Romantic Rose flavoring was almost too subtle, but eating it after two truffles with stronger flavors probably didn't help this fact.
Note: Entry details and photographs will be delayed due to travel in Alaska this week.
