Hot Chocolate, Anyone?

Tsokolateria's Hot Chocolate, Tagaytay City

Another specialty from one of my favorite restaurants in the province, tsokolateria, is their hot chocolate. What sets their hot chocolate from the usual is that these babies are made from tablea which are strong cacao chips that are made from big tablets (Tablea is a Spanish word for Tablet) but nowadays are made in balls or disks form. These "tablets" are then placed in boiling water or milk and a special wooden whisk called the "batirol", also came from the Spanish word batidor, is used to mix it and make it frothy and creamy.

Their hot chocolates are available in regular, dark, or like this one above which is their tsoko-nut variant, which is mixed with delicious Filipino favorite "Choc-Nut" which are small chocolate bars made of chocolate and ground peanuts (see bar on the bottom right). They are so good, take my word for it!

    1. Hahaha I'm kind of weird Tom that even if the heat is so fatal nowadays, I love the sweetness that comes from melted chocolate as it has just melted and not cooled HAHA But that craving comes very very rarely though, I won;t trade an ice cold tea!
