I think a walk in the San Lorenzo area is not complete until you go to Said. Follow the Willy Wonka spirit in you! I’m pretty sure that all of you readers like chocolate. Who doesn’t?!
SAID is located in a nearly 100 year old place where you can really immerse yourself in the chocolate world! It started as a chocolate factory, which it still is, because everything is made right here, but now you can also try chocolate right there in the shop. Take note that many ancient chocolate tools and machines are used to decorate the rooms in a stunning way.
How can I start describing how amazing this place is? Ok let’s start with the shop, where you can buy thousands of things, like chocolate bars made with different, particular and usual ingredients, or pralines, chocolate powder, boxes …well just go there and see what inspires you! Safe to say you will not leave the place empty handed.
SAID isn’t only a store, there are many spots where you can sit down and relax with what I’d like to call chocolate therapy. Just order a cup of hot chocolate or an espresso in a cocktail glass covered with chocolate and a selection of their mixed pralines. Your taste buds will thank me later.
Recently they also opened a restaurant where you can try many different dishes, all of them with a special hint of chocolate!
The place became so popular that another branch of SAID opened in London on 41 Broadwick St.
