"Choco-late de batirol is like sipping a cup of thick cream thats been made a little more firm by constant beating from the molenillo, a wooden beater or whisk."

I was supposed to give them 3 stars because I remember telling my boyfriend that when I make a review here in looloo I'll write that their hot chocolate was disappointing. 128514128514 (feeling food blogger nako haha) but now that I remember their traditional hot chocolate, ahhhh it makes me wanna go back and try it all over again. At first really for me it tasted bitter I dont know maybe because I'm used to sweet hot chocolate like the one at Mary Grace. Hehe. In my opinion, I think you should not drink this at night because I wasn't able to sleep! With the puto bumbong and bibingka, it was gooood but didn't gave me food orgasm. Hehehe.

I'll definitely come back here with my sister who is a fan of hot chocolates. I just hope she won't be shocked on how different the taste of their hot choco with the other ones like what I've experienced. 128539

I just love this Strawberry Batirol! 128525 127827
Never miss to drop by this place upon heading to Camp John Hay.
With a kick of cocoa taste in its best way that a bit of bitterness and sweetness just perfectly combined!
It is really something different for me since Im used to the same old usual frappe that I can buy from coffee shops.

Try this and you'll never regret it 9786128521

Not really a fan of the traditional filipino hot chocolate, but i must say, this one is really good. I usually prefer the sweet tasting hot chocolates, but this has a combination of sweetness and bitterness that makes you crave for more 9786 this will be my staple hot chocolate place in Baguio 128518

I always love the place that has good ambiance, and this place has it. Choco-late de Batirol is quite crowded last night, and we are 5th in the waiting list. But after few minutes, we are assisted to this elevated , "bahay kubo" like area.

Our dinner is like a snack, since we are still full from our late lunch in Canto. And of course we ordered their specialty, the choco-late de batirol. I was expecting for creamy and chocolatey, but its not. Chocolate is mild, less creamy and as they mentioned outside their place , I read that they served the chocolate drink with peanuts, which I tasted. For me its ok, because I prefer the tablea homemade drink.. Creamy128521
For our food, we had suman (slurp!! with muscovado and coconut on top), bibingka, palabok (its good ! Its a must try) and champorado with tuyo (hmmm didn't tasted it, its actually something that is out of my list when it comes to food 128548)
This place is nice to visit when in Baguio. Their chocolate drinks has other variety.

On my birth week, R and I decided to escape Manila and went to Baguio for some fresh cold wind. I've always wanted to visit Cafe by the Ruins and after several failed beautiful eyes, R finally agreed to bring me to the charming place. But the Panagbenga visitors seem to have flocked to this place the time we visited the city center. With one hour wait time, R and I decided to go somewhere else. I was already about to pout till my lips reach Manila until when we discovered...

Choco-late de Batirol!

The place is so adorable and the hues of green and brown makes you feel in touch with nature. Sweet chocolate scent dominated the air during our visit and made me drool for its famous hot chocolate.

But we had to wait for a bit as all tables were taken when we got there.

When we finally got served, we ordered the following: Bibingka (PHP105), Suman sa Lihia (PHP64), Traditional Blend (PHP95), and Baguio Classic Cold Batirol (PHP150).

In less than 15 minutes, the Traditional Blend drink, bibingka and suman arrived.

The hot chocolate drink had a nice and rich smell of tablea. It had tones of dark chocolate which I liked but the texture was not as smooth as I wanted it to be. It had a lot of grains that made my throat itch.

Bibingka was quite small and had no salted eggs on it. Instead, it was just topped with coconut shavings. As for the taste, it was very bland.

I'm not sure if it's intentional to complement the batirol but I didn't like it.

Choco-late de Batirol's bestselling suman also didn't leave much of an impression. Perhaps I was expecting something different or spectacular based on the reviews. But this one was pretty ordinary to me. It was good but nothing worth traveling for four hours.

The cold batirol was the saving grace of our visit, or so how R put it. It was sweeter than my drink and it had a peanut-y taste. Taste-wise, it was good. But it also had that grainy rough texture which I didn't like. And it took them forever to serve this drink. We had to follow up more than thrice. We finally got this drink after half an hour or so. For beverage, I don't think it's a reasonable wait.

Adorable place but the merienda dishes and drinks were mediocre. Not sure if I'll visit again but if I do, I'll try the talangka rice.

Been hearing great reviews here but yea, it did not disappoint! It's a place where you want to relax, drink and eat whenever you escape the metro to Baguio.

The place is hidden somewhere in Camp John Hay. You'll know when you find it. The place is designed like a hidden house beneath the forest. There's a lot of plants and of course, FLOWERS! You will feel relaxed when you're there. The food however, is surprisingly great! And because we are hungry.. We ordered a group meal for 6 (5 lang kami non. Haha #pg). It composed of 4 fried daing na bangus, 1 serving of caldereta, 2 servings of itlog maalat salad, 6 cups of rice and 6 glasses of house blend iced tea. Those were all great! We even ordered 3 cups of extra rice. Haha. So, since we went there because of their famous batirol, we also got to taste the original, strawberry flavored batirol and choco-mallows batirol. As expected, the chocolate is rich, a little bitter and gives the relaxing effect of hot coco on a cold day. 128521

All in all, it's a place where you find good food, promising hot coco and a relaxed feel!

Breakfast has never been this romantic and nature-friendly. Hot chocolate, daing na bangus and eggs for brekky at Chocolate de Batirol once again with my friend.

And I think I just perfected the flat lay for this one. Lol. As a first timer, she loved the place. I also noticed that the place improved with their service. This time they're a bit faster and much more attentive to their customers.

Place was jampacked but good thing that when we came a group cleared out one table.

I chose this place as our first stop as soon as we arrived in Baguio. It can get crowded on weekends especially in the morning. Luckily, we were there on a weekday and there was no need to wait for a spot. I ordered TOCINONG KALABAW and the crowd favorite, TRADITIONAL BLEND HOT CHOCOLATE. My mom enjoyed the SUMAN SA LIHIA and my sister loved their VIGAN LONGGANISA. 128522

Go for the traditional tsokolate drink with Bibingka 128522
Place is crowded on weekends and holidays but it's worth the wait. The place is tucked in the middle of gardens and trees with notes hanging on walls and trees reminding everyone to love the earth... I LOVE the super cozy and comfortable ambience!

great, great Bistek. Chocolate was also made using the batirol - it still has that nut taste to it. Their bibingka is also amazing.

It is almost dawn when we went here. The weather is cold so we decided to go here for a cup of hot choco-late. They say that they served the best hot choco in the Philippines and I agree with that. The nutty and chocolaty flavor of the cordillera cacao is very good. Perfect for the cold weather.

They serve their choco-late freshly made straight from the pot where they dissolve the cacao. I saw one of the barista making the hot choclate for every order.I ordered the hot choco with peppermint and it was dang good. Perfect for that cold december evening.

I don't know if they do it all day but when we are there we are serenated by the acoustic music of their artist. (I forgot the name but he is good!) That time one of my friend is undergoing an LTR break up. Hahaha it's already months na so we try to teased him by requesting a song "Let Me Be The One" by Jimmy Bondoc to the singer with a message "Kaya mo yan, Bro!" It turned out the singer interpreted the message wrong and that assume that my friend is gay so we laugh and laugh all the time we were there.

We also try their Bibingka but I didn't like it that much. I find it so plain because I grew up eating bibingka with salted egg, cheese and lots of margarine. Hahaha 128518

The ambiance of the place is what I like best. It has a forest garden nipa hut theme that is really cool and surrounded by oine trees. All in all the experience is great. I can't wait to go back here on my next trip to Baguio.
