Chocolate lady – Шоколадница | November 27, 2007

Chocolate lady - Шоколадница

A few good men decided to have some tea in Ashgabat. And finally, thanks to globalization, there’s a decent chocolate house. The famous Russian company Шоколадница (Shokoladnitsa) is booming in Russia and ex-USSR. I guess they decided to open a cafe in Ashgabat…

I just wish I could show you their arrays of tea and coffee jars, waitresses’ aprons, their teapot… It was fascinating, felt like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. There’s a stark difference between this miracle and old Slastena cafe for example. I still remember the most horrible service in that “we want ur money” cafe. I don’t care that this is yet another Russian business in Ashgabat. Damn, the waitress of Shokoladnitsa approached us again and asked: “Do you guys want anything else?” And this is not an expensive restaurant…

Starbucks is late, Russians are already here 😉

P.S. Actually I’m not 100% sure that it’s Russian. It might be local. I’m a mere customer too, just guessing…

  5. japanese are exemplary for the case. they’ve become the ‘leader’ without ‘following’ anyone. respect them for this!

  6. Japanese, Koreans and Germans are unique in this sense. Their development is based on values of nation, honour and duty. U.S. model is ased on freedom…

    Golden question – What’s the Turkmen model?
