Got A Sweet Tooth? This Is The New Luxury Dessert House You're Going To Love **

Got the key? This is a phrase I've been seen bouncing around my Instagram feed for a while and for some reason, I've felt very left out. I don't like to be kept in the dark about secrets so when I received my 'digital key' I was very content with life.

What does this key open you ask? Well, I'm going to let you in on one of the best kept secrets that you've got to hold on to until the right moment.

Haute Dolci is the *new* high luxury dessert house you're going to want to visit. But oh, no - you shouldn't go shouting about it. This is one of the sweetest best kept secrets that you only tell people about on special occasions because this place is heavenly. It's like I died and went to dessert heaven (literally).

The owner of Haute Dolci is also the owner of renowned desert house, Heavenly Desserts. Playing on the HD, CEO Nizam Mohamed has created the desert house from your dreams and quite literally is like you've gone to desert heaven. You thought Heavenly Desserts was nice - wait until you've tried this place!

I visited the branch on Granby Street (Leicester) and was very pleasantly surprised by a very large staircase that looks like it's been pulled straight from a Vogue shoot, with a large screen above it showcasing some of their best desserts. Denim blue decor with gold embellishments and marble table tops, this place screams luxury. I've not taken many photos of the interior because photos genuinely cannot justify what the place actually looks likes - you need to visit a Haute Dolci branch to get the full effect. (According to one of the employees, each of them has a different decor).

Upon arriving, we were directed to the private dining area which felt a little excluded from everyone else which was quite nice. With over 75 desserts to choose from, we chose our food over three complimentary chocolate shots which were YUMMY!!!! Apparently, even the little cardboard looking logos you get with your desserts are chocolate too...

After taking forever to choose our food, Nizam Mohamed took me on a small tour around the restaurant. He showed me their flower selection with the Forever roses that are meant to last 3-4 years. You can buy these from Haute Dolci soon. They will also be selling a selection of chocolates and macaroons soon. I'm also very excited about the flower garden that will be opening early next year on the first floor. Additionally, in November, there will be a selection of snack-like foods so if you don't fancy a dessert straight away, you can have a small snack before.

When we got our food, it looked absolutely amazing. I actually can't remember what I ordered because I stupidly didn't make a note. I took a few photos of what my mum and sister ordered and they looked so yummy!

I was watching the assembly of the desserts and the CEO was discussing with me how he liked the approach Subway have with being able to clearly see the production line. I think its a very clever idea because people can see the process of how what they're about to eat is being made.

The chocolate taps are on full view (I'm going to let you see those ones for yourselves), you can see the chefs making the pancakes, waffles, cookie dough - everything. The staff that add all the fancy stuff were put under pressure with me taking photos but they still managed to do a fabulous job, pushing out all their order looking like a piece of art.

I had a chocolate fudge cake with custard and in all honesty, it is the best chocolate cake I have ever eaten. Just enjoy these pure food porn images. I'm such a chocoholic, this was literally the most amazing thing.

 This is a super rich cake that's not too dry or moist. The pure, melted chocolate and chocolate fudge sauce really make the cake even better. I'm a huge fan of custard but they do do this dessert with ice cream too.

Speaking of ice cream, there is such a large selection to choose from. I honestly am lost for words with this place - you don't realise how tempting it is for me to take a trip back there before college one day!

 The mocktail I ordered was a tropical blend of orange and I think passion fruit (I have a really bad memory). But the other cocktails I have seen look so delicious and fresh. They're made with fresh fruit sorbets and juices.

The attention to detail in this place is amazing and astounds me so much. Leicester's store officially opened today so if you want to try it out, get down to Granby Street! There are three more branches in Coventry, Cheshire and Manchester.

I know where I'll be heading for my 18th!

Until next time...
