The best chocolate shops in Hong Kong for any occasion

Chocolate is an excellent treat for any occasion, whether it’s Valentine’s Day or just your weekly ‘Netflix and binge’ session. And getting your hands on this delectable treat isn’t difficult, but rather than settling for something you could quickly grab at the convenience store, why not try some of the more decadent varieties available in the city?

A famous quote says, “Nine out of ten people love chocolate, and the 10th person is always lying.” Chocolate is a known stress buster and the first thing we reach to satiate those sugar cravings. But there is so much more to this gooey delight that meets the eye. It takes 400 cocoa beans to make a pound (pack of 9 bars) of chocolate. Wondering how much chocolate we consume in a year, then? According to the World Cocoa Foundation, people consume three million tons of cocoa beans yearly. That’s how much we love cocoa!

From European selections to homegrown brands, Hong Kong is home to some of the best chocolate shops. They elevate their chocolate-making to art with elegant designs and unique flavours, all made with premium ingredients. For those with specific dietary restrictions, fret not—these chocolate shops offer vegan and gluten-free options too! 

So, whatever type of chocolate you’re craving, you’ll find everything to suit your taste on our list below. These chocolate shops in Hong Kong raise the bar for cacao. Additionally, they offer everything from dark chocolates to sugary white varieties in truffles, bars, and all kinds of innovative, artful creations. Picture a smooth bonbon with rich dark chocolate and deep coffee notes or a colourful square with a hint of smooth bourbon. If you love chocolates, these are your temples, and Hong Kong’s chocolatiers are your gods. 

Fair warning: these bites of pure deliciousness might just prove addictive.

Charbonnel et Walker

Founded in 1875, Charbonnel et Walker, is one of the oldest chocolatiers from Britain that made their way to Hong Kong. Over its long history, the brand has kept to its culinary methods but doesn’t hesitate to put a contemporary twist to its offerings. The classic vintage charm is evident from its packaging. Among its selection, we recommend the dark marc de champagne, one of its bestsellers. You also can’t go wrong with dark sea salt caramel or the milk sea salt billionaire shortbread flavours.

Hakawa Chocolate

This chocolate shop is located on an unassuming street in Central. Don’t let the tiny shop fool you as it’s where melt-in-your-mouth chocolates are made. Its name, Hakawa, combines the words Hong Kong and ‘kakawa’, which is the ancient word for cacao. Hakawa champions authenticity so it’s not surprising that all the chocolates are made from scratch, using raw cacao beans sourced from local farmers. Vegan chocolates are available alongside flavours like pistachio, cranberry, and hojicha almond.

Conspiracy Chocolate

The only “conspiracy” behind this brand’s creations is that it only uses two ingredients: cacao and raw organic sugar. The result? A 75 percent dark yet healthy chocolate, which also happens to be vegan. The cacao beans come from a single source—a farm in the Dak Lak province of Vietnam. The beans are hand-sorted, fermented, and then dried in natural sunlight. Conspiracy Chocolate also has a knack for unique combinations so don’t miss the Sichuan pepper and salt and caramel flavours. Available in multiple retail shops across the city as well as pop-up stores, there’s no excuse not to try the chocolates here!
