Shopping at elco ? Stop at Trench for some great food

Posted on Leave a comment

The Chocolate Room is the self-proclaimed ‘Best Chocolate Dessert Café ‘of the city. For the past 10 years, it has indeed been one of the most popular dessert cafes of not just the city, but the whole country.

With Trench by The Chocolate Room, they are taking their craft to a whole new dimension. Trench’s menu definitely justifies its association with the chocolate room. It has got some of the best dessert options out there. ‘The Midas Touch’ deserves a special mention here. From shakes to frappes to sundaes, they have got it all.

But Trench is so much more than just another dessert place. It is a complete restaurant café. It offers one of the longest, never-ending beverage and food menu that we have ever seen. We definitely recommend going in big groups or making multiple visits, just to experience the amazing array of cuisines that this place has to offer.

You can never go wrong with soups and appetizers here. Our recommendation would be the mini burger platter, it’s unique and it’s awesome. The crepes are also great here. We also had the Mexican Filo Tart, Mezze Platter, Garlic Bread, The Red Velvet Cake, and the Kit-Kat shake and we would recommend it all without any hesitation. The food served here is legit delicious, fresh and has a unique taste to it. The food and the vibe here have got some indescribable quality to it, which is difficult to put in words. You have got to experience it. The feel of the place is quite chic yet very cosy and homely. The wall art, the swings, the red booth, and the overall setting of the place sets the mood right.

One outing to this place may not be enough to go through the whole menu, but it was more than enough for us to recommend Trench to anyone and everyone who enjoys good food from café-restro style menu and who is looking forward to indulging in some out-of-this-world desserts!

What do you need?


1. Sponge cake
2. Crushed oreo
3. Granola, Roasted nuts like almonds, pistachio
4. Dark chocolate , fresh cream
5. Blueberry compote
6. Some chocolate balls for dressing
7. Nutella / Ferrero rocher is optional

Preparation time :
30 mins


Step 1 : Melt the chocolate . I chose a dark chocolate one and melted in in cream. You could also keep it in microwave oven if you want it thick but please keep stirring every 10 / 20 seconds.


Step 2 : meanwhile take blueberry and add it the cream and churn it
I used Trader Joes as it is very organic with less sugar.
You could also use regular available for Rs300 or so.

Step 3 : break your sponge cake and put it as your base. Please add a bit of butter and then put the sponge cake so it sticks together


Step 4 : add your blueberry fresh cream . Make sure you taste it.

Step 5 : put crushed oreo in butter too so it sticks and is nice . Remove the cream between Oreos .


Step 6: put another layer of sponge cake but this time first mix the sponge cake with some chocolate sauce to make it look like brownie.

Then spread it

Step 7 : add roasted nuts . We added crushed ferrero rocher , granola , roasted nuts, dried raspberries.

Step 8 : put the thick chocolate ganache that you made on the top.


Step 9 : optional : add a layer of Nutella and crushed ferrero rocher on top

Step 10 : FREEZE it (deep freeze it) for 7-8 hours

#TGJTIPS : put a toothpick in the corner and insert it till the last layer to see if it has set

Taddddaaaa ! Garnish it with some nuts or how you like it.

It tastes as good as outside !
