Chef Ryan visits a restaurant that utilizes chocolate in almost all their dishes. The Mediterranean fusion food is unique and interesting, but the eleven kinds of hot chocolate they serve might be even better!

Next, Ryan talks to David, the owner of Chocolate about his vision for the restaurant, and the city of Santa Cruz. He meets the owner's pet dog, named Cocoa, in theme with the restaurant. This place uses every kind of chocolate available to them, including white chocolate and pure dark chocolate. In the kitchen, Ryan works with David to make a chocolate barbeque sauce, which he tries in a pork dish they make. Ryan sits with some locals enjoying their chocolate-infused meals. Ryan also gets a taste of the various types of hot chocolate they offer. Is it possible to eat too much chocolate?
