HOUSTON, TX — The talented chef Rebecca Masson, also known as "The Sugar Fairy", shared her take on the best places to satisfy your chocolate craving in Houston. Try them out yourself!

  1. Hugo's

You can enjoy authentic regional Mexican cuisine served by the James Beard award-winning chef, Hugo Ortega, here. Since Hugo's has a unique way to present chocolate, you can try the pato en mole Poblano if you love something savory. It's a crispy duck with mole Poblano or chocolate-based sauce. But, if you prefer sweet treats instead, then you can choose the pastel de chocolate al chipotle, a dark chocolate cake filled with chipotle pepper.

Located at 1600 Westheimer Rd., Hugo's is a popular spot for brunch that you can visit from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.

2. Cacao & Cardamom

Cacao & Cardamom is a luxury chocolate boutique by chef Annie Rupanie in Houston. Its handcrafted chocolate is globally influenced since the chocolatier loves to travel around the world. She brings her best interest and passion for chocolate on her way back to Houston from Malaysia after learning the art of chocolate there.

You will found those compelling and colorful small pieces of bon-bons and truffles that would be perfect for a gift. You can also enjoy hot chocolate, tea, coffee, and gelato at this store. The place is located at 2013 West Gray St.

3. Fat Cat Creamery

Craving for something cold and sweet? Then the Fat Cat Creamery is the right spot for you. Start with a scoop of milk chocolate stout ice cream with Convict Hill Oatmeal stout beer — you will love it!

The cats emphasize the use of local ingredients, they even get their eggs from their hens at The Barry Farm, and they also support Texas dairy. Get your scoops at 1901 N. Shepherd Houston any day of the week.
