The best option in Dallas right now is [url="http://www.doughmonkey.com/"]Doughmonkey[/url]–a pastry shop that carries a small selection of fine chocolate bars (e.g., Amano, Amedei, Bonnat, Cluizel, Domori, Patric, & Valrhona), all priced competitively with the better mail order options.

Doughmonkey also uses quality chocolate in their pastries. Recent examples include a [url="http://www.dallasfood.org/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=110"]Patric Madagascar ganache-covered cake[/url], [url="http://www.dallasfood.org/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=111"]Amedei Chuao flourless chocolate cake[/url], and a [url="http://www.dallasfood.org/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=111"]DeVries Dominican 80% ganache-covered brownie[/url]. (Today, they’re using the Patric Madagascar 70% for a flourless chocolate cake, Cluizel Vila Gracinda for hot chocolate, Valrhona Guanaja in a chocolate peanut butter tart, etc.)

Bad for the waistline and pocketbook, but good for the soul.
