Best Chocolate Cake In Los Angeles

As most everyone knows, chocolate contains mood elevators called opioids that dull pain and give a sense of well-being. It also has natural uppers like caffeine, sugar and phenylthalymine, which gets the heart pounding a little faster resulting in a slight “high.” Jan. 27 is National Chocolate Cake Day, so now you have even more of an excuse to indulge in a slice. Whether you’re looking for a slice or the whole cake, these places promise the best chocolate cake in town.
