    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      One of Shanghai's most popular chocolate dessert spots (for good reason) changed their name from Whisk to CH2 in 2015, adding cheese to their theme. All their Chocolate cakes and desserts remain, and now they have cheesecakes. The food menu now includes bistro-esque options like crepes, burgers, nachos, and pastas. Their brunch menu is available everyday, and for happy hour they also have fresh oysters and a good selection of wine. Definitely a solid place for a date, but casual enough to chill with friends or have a coffee and a piece of cake.

    If you like chocolate and/or cheese, this is the place to go. It's in the freaking name! Or, on the sign at least, it's not actually in the name at all, and how they came up with CH2 I've got no clue. Still, they've got a great sign, and then another one that rips off the Breaking Bad logo that's pretty neat.

    Food-wise, we tried the fried gruyere, grilled cheese sandwich, and the mac and cheese. Now, I've tried pretty much every bowl of mac and cheese this town has to offer, and CH2 ranks among the best. Not a huge bar set there to be sure, but the noodles are big so as to soak up maximum cheese with every bite, and the cheese itself is rich and plentiful. Why do all these other restaurants skimp on the cheese? It's like the damn Fermi Paradox, man. The fried gruyere was very good and came with a variety of toast/cracker options, and the grilled cheese was okay. I feel like they're gonna get some stiff competition in that area now that Cheese Co opened on Yongkang, where the grilled cheese is not only better but also cheaper. Not that it was bad, just eminently skippable in the face of other menu options. I was the only one in our group to try dessert, and had some lovely chocolate pudding topped with ice cream AND a damn fine chocolate chip cookie. I was impressed, but then it's not too often I get chocolate pudding in a restaurant. Stands well above Snack Packs fer sure.

    Drinks-wise, the limoncello and chococello (is this a thing? it doesn't sound like a thing) were both smooth without being weak, and sweet without being cloying. I also had the spiked hot chocolate, which is where I really started feeling fatigued. It doesn't get richer than this, I imagine the dudes straight up melted down a hunk of chocolate, and then give you an additional chocolate egg cup filled with a shot to throw in there. Faaaancy. Does it need that extra egg cup thing? Not at all. Is it worth it? Not at all.

    Which brings me to the price. The hot chocolate alone is almost 60 rmb, and that egg shot is an additional 30 (the menu is a little weird about this, listing them separately but both under the header "spiked hot chocolate", making you think they're different items). So, you're paying 90 kuai for a drink most people probably won't even finish since it's so rich and thick, with a single shot in there. The limoncello and chococello (sp?) shots were more reasonably priced at I think 30-35, which for a shot of hoity-toity homemade liqueur seems fine to me, YMMV. The dinner items were all normal French Concession prices, starting at 50 and going up from there. There's a lunch special where you can get that grilled cheese with soup and a drink for 60, that seems more reasonable to me, and you don't get a ton of mac and cheese for 60 (certainly not rivalling what Captain Rooster gives you), but that taste goes a long way. My friends had wine and beer, I didn't see how much the wine was but 45 for a Duvel, alright sure. In the end, 4 people eating and drinking came to 800 total, which is just...ouch. Wasn't expecting that with their little quirk-cafe vibe.

    But then, I was excited to finally check this place out and all jazzed up having just seen Iron Man and Captain America punching and blasting and just having all the fights, so I definitely over-ordered. By the end, my chest was for reals hurting a little bit and I could barely move. My girlfriend couldn't finish her spiked hot chocolate and added it to mine, which, on top of the chococello and chocolate pudding, had me actually maybe dying. I had consumed so much chocolate I was starting to enter a chocolate dimension, seeing through chocolate eyes. I broke on through to the chocolate side. Maybe...maybe I was a chocolate bar all along, dreaming I was a man.

    Good spot for a date though, it's hella cozy inside, the staff are helpful, and who doesn't love chocolate. Oh, and cheese. Maybe your date wants to 'gram their little 30 rmb pointless chocolate egg cup, I'm not gonna judge. Order light.
