Ghraoui Chocolate


1061 Budapest, Andrássy út 61


Ghraoui was one of the most prestigious Syrian merchant families, operating a chocolate shop since 1805. Fleeing the Syrian Civil War, they re-established their chocolate shop in Hungary. See our article about their story here. The delicacies are made in Csepel and the shop on grand Andrássy út is spacious and elegant. The technology of preserving the fruit embedded in the chocolate is passed down from generation to generation. Their artisanal knowledge of the craft has also been acquired through Syria’s French connections and the sweets are prepared according to a secret family recipe.
