Casa Xocolat


On any of the food trips, PEx food club usually goes to another place for coffee and dessert if both are not available in the resto that we tried. After our dinner at Grilled Tomato, we went to Casa Xocolat, which is only a few meters away from Grilled Tomato.

Casa Xocolat is an old house converted into a cafe, or chocolate shop (for a lack of a better term). The place is mostly al fresco, though there is an indoor area also.

True to its name, Casa Xocolat offers mainly chocolate cakes and drinks, but they also serve pasta, panini and salad.


Am I dead? It seems like I'm in heaven
Seeing a counter-full of delicious cakes made me dizzy! I can't choose which one to order! hahaha

I ordered That Xocolat Cake (Php 95 per slice) to share with my partner in crime.


That Xocolat Cake (and my camera reflecting on the glass)

That Xocolat Cake has a big white X design (as seen on the picture above). It is deep dark chocolate cake for the "absolute chocoholics" (like me).

I also got Taza de Xocolat (Php 145), which is Xocolat's signature blend.

Partner in crime got one of the Cold Caprichos, Vanilla Mudslide (Php 115).


Vanilla Mudslide

Vanilla Mudslide is an ice-blended Oreo cookies and vanilla ice cream laced with Bailey's.

That Xocolat cake reminded me of Ms. Polly's chocolate cake, but a less sweeter version. I would love to have this cake for my birthday. :)

One thing that surprised me was the Taza de Xocolat. I love the way it was presented, in a old looking cup with mint leaf on top. However, it was too thick that I wanted to get some pan de sal and dip it on my drink. The Vanilla Mudslide is good too, though it looks like a kiddie drink, it is not because of the Bailey's.

Overall, I like Casa Xocolat. I love the cake and the ambiance. Though I'm a chocolate addict, I should have ordered coffee instead of hot chocolate.

I would love to go back and try the other cakes. :)
