A favourite haunt for Bahrain’s chocoholics, the walls of this temple to chocolate are unsurprisingly various shades of rich, creamy brown, as are the outfits of the super-friendly Filipino waiting staff. Meanwhile, the shelves and counter space are stacked with enticing chocolate sculptures, glass jars bursting with chocolate buttons, decadent desserts and sumptuously packaged chocolate treats to take away.
Drop by and expect to see European professionals and Bahraini girls in black veils working themselves into a Labrador-like lather over the fabulous fondue. Chances are that you’ll join the queue to dip strawberries and marshmallows into a river of gooey chocolate. But if all that sounds a tad too sickly, settle for a cup of hot chocolate instead, if you can choose one from the mile-long list, that is. A chic, sleek outfit, Maya represents a great place to eat chocolate and chit chat. Bliss.
