At Portugal Confidential, we adore chocolate. From the Obidos Chocolate Festival, to the Best Chocolate Cake in the World, we know where to go to for our guilty pleasure. So when we heard that Wallpaper Magazine listed Chocolataria Equador in Porto as one of the “Top 20 Reasons to Visit Portugal,” we had to investigate immediately.
Chocolataria Equador on Rua Sá da Bandeira is a contemporary confectionier in retro styling. Step through the contemporary façade into a realm of wood and glass display cases, filled with handmade chocolates wrapped in ornate retro papers. The unmistakable and exhilarating aroma of cocoa permeates the room.
A treasure trove of bon bons, truffles, macaroons, and chocolate bars are there for tasting. And a selection of coffees, cappuccinos and hot chocolates are available to accompany the treats.
Of course, chocolate makes great gifts too. So, the artisans here have designed gorgeous gift boxes and various packing options to take your chocolate-aficionado. Themed products are available for special celebrations too, especially Valentine’s Day, Easter and Christmas.
