The cup that cheers

Tall, dark and handsome. There can be only one Antonia Banderas. And who knows how tall he really is anyway. Suffice it to say that it's been a while since I surrendered the hunt for a man that might meet at least two of the aforementioned criteria.

My decision to abandon this quest, this man-hunt, if you like, had little to do with lack of perseverance on my part, and more do with the only positive attribute of ageing: wisdom. No, wait. I surrender. It had everything to do with chocolate.

Coming from someone who has had to sip on far too many less-than-satisfying chocolate shakes for her own good in the rather brazen attempt to meet her inner fat girl, it was a great day when we (fatty and I) made our most humble acquaintance with the mighty Azteca.

If you too, as we were, are in need of a guarantee, ask to meet her at this chocolaterie. Making a commitment to white chocolate ice cream floating in a glass filled with molten chocolate spiked with chilli and cinnamon is possibly the only one worth keeping. Trust me. I might not have known too many men worth keeping, but chocolate? We're bonded for life.

Price: Rs 170 (Azteca float); Rs 150 (Azteca hot chocolate)
Where: San Churro, Waterfield Road, Bandra (W).
Call: 26400044
