DAY 1 - STOP # 5
After getting enough rest in our room, my mom and I decided to grab some dinner nearby (as in walking distance near). Good thing there were lots of options near the hotel, and I chose to have our dinner at Tsokolateria. They have branches here in Tagaytay, as well as in Baguio. The Tagaytay branch is located inside The Boutique Bed and Breakfast, a rather fancy hotel located along the highway.
Tsokolateria shares its space with Hawaiian BBQ, and you may opt to sit at their al fresco area, or in the indoor dining area. As for us, we chose to sit indoors because it was too dark outside, and the tables were a bit too low for us to be able to eat our meal properly. As expected, you may cross order between the two restaurants, but we just ordered from Tsokolateria. Here's what we had that night:
✅ TSOKOLATE EH (Php 195) -
A bittersweet hot chocolate perfect for those who are not that fond of sweet drinks. The chocolate is very thick, and the slight roasty flavor gave the drink an interesting aroma. For the sweet tooths, you may opt to get their Tsokolate Ah instead, since this is the sweeter version according to our server. But if you've been paying attention during the discussion of Noli Me Tangere when we were still in school, Tsokolate Eh is better! HAHAHA. (Note: A serving is already good for 2 people who get about 2 cups each. Great value for money!)
✅ SMOKED BANGUS, DANGGIT CHICHARON, AND GARLIC CACAO (Php 295) -
My mom is forever a big fan of bangus dishes, so I instantly knew she'd get this. The food boasts of various colors, which was too pretty to eat. My mom loved the bangus, but found the danggit too hard to chew with dentures, so I ate them for her. The native red mountain rice, which I found interesting, was not favored by my mom. I think she found it too heavy compared to the usual white / garlic rice. Also, I don't think the chocolate part was noticeable in this dish.
✅ CALAMARES PANDESAL (Php 275) -
This was okay. Calamares were freshly fried, but I found it super hard to eat! I had to take off all the calamares so I'd be able to slice the bread. Also, I don't really like how they slathered the pandesal with so much mayonnaise. Just a suggestion: Maybe they can try to add some garlic to the mayo to cut through the oiliness and umay factor. The soup of the day was Bulalo, and it was tasty and tasted quite authentic, not what you'd expect from free soup. The Kamote Fries, on the other hand, was really delicious, buy the caramelized sugar caused the fries to stick together.
I loved the ambiance of the restaurant, as it is quite laidback and relaxing. The neutral-colored interiors make the colorful food stand out even more! On the other hand, I found the waiters to be a bit loud, as some huddled around the counter talking to each other. They could improve a bit on their service.
Nevertheless, I found the overall experience to be quite good, and since it's along the highway, its pretty accessible too!

It was raining all afternoon and with a little respite from the gloom, decided to cross over from Serin Mall to the Bed & Breakfast Boutique which houses Tsokolateria. They have a beautiful Veranda but had limited seating capacity because most seats and tables were soaked. Had to settle near the lobby which was fine but hardly ventilated. Ordered the Tsokolate Mallows which was good for two. Thick and creamy Chocolate drink served with slightly Roasted Chocolate marshmallows on two mugs. They had to dim the lights because of the swarm of months hovering near the lights. Enjoyed our stay here, good thing the cool evening breeze gave us a reprieve from the heat.

Newfound place!! I frequent Tagaytay and can't believe I didn't know about this place until my friend researched about it! This place is definitely for chocolate lovers.
I had their main Table Tsokolate (the dark variant) drink and I liked it! The regular variant I found to be a bit thin and too sweet for me.
The Bibingka Pancake was not super soft & moist but passable, I really liked the presentation though. The consistency of the chocolate dipping sauce for the fondue was too thin so it was hard to scoop out, but nevertheless I enjoyed my time here - yummy drink coupled with the cool weather of Tagaytay.

Since we have nothing else to do, Ony and I decided to drop by TSOKOLATERIA. I've already visited their Baguio branch but I never had the chance to try the waffle and/or any of their drinks. So now's the time!!!
We arrived at around 11am and the place was empty. NO CUSTOMER. Hmm, maybe because it's still early? 🤔🤔🤔
We ordered the BARAKO TSOKOLATE and the CHURROS WAFFLE w Cashew nuts, Chocnut, Banana and Peanut Butter.
It's hard not to fall in love w the waffle. It looks really good and so instagrammable. And the fact they used 2 of my favorites - Banana + Peanut Butter, I was so excited to try it right away.
Presentation was really good but in terms of the taste, both were just okay. Nothing extraordinary. Waffle was too hard and kind of oily (well because Churros). Also, though served in a batirol?, the coffee wasn't that hot anymore.
Rating them 1 star because of the ipis incident. A reported ipis incident and no action or anything from them to fix the incident. No ipis during our visit but the fact that we read an article online after eating here makes me wanna cry. It's disturbing, super disturbing.
Maybe that's the reason why the place was empty.
NOT AGAIN TSOKOLATERIA HUHU. Why you do that!!!!!!

Wanted to try the churros waffle with strawberry but it wasn't available so I settled with the one with chocolate syrup, pb and banana.
It was good but I would have loved it more if it wasn't super crunchy. Yikes . The serving was big though, good for 2-3 persons.

Tagaytay Food Crawl
8th Stop: Tsokolateria Cafe
This is our 8th Stop and this is one of the best restaurant that we experienced in Tagaytay. From the interior set-up, service and the food.
Tsokolateria Cafe offers dishes that infused or comes with Tsokolate. Yes, everything with chocolate. Chocolate will always made me feel happy. Midz, Kristin and I had Homemade Crispy Bacon with Tsokolate for Php260.00 and Jayson, Midz, Russel and I also order Tablea Champorado for Php320.00 and the rest got Tsokolate with Chili and a normal one without spice.
Homemade Crispy Bacon with Tsokolate (Crispy House Bacon dipped with Tablea Syrup) - ️️️️️ 5/5
"The crispy bacon is very addicting. Dipping with Table Chocolate gives more flavor. I cannot resist the combination of sweetness and saltiness of the tsokolate and crispy bacon, trust me! You will ask for more of it. Ang sarap. Bitin nga eh! Hahaha!"
Table Champorado (The old fashioned way, mountain rice cooked in rich native table served with adobo flakes, chicharon and crispy fish chips) - ️️️️️ 5/5
"Who doesn't want champorado served with tuyo? (Gosh! I am craving now while I am writing this review) But this time the champorado was infused with tablea "lasang lasa mo yung tsokolate" and instead of tuyo they used daing and chicharon, it's one of the best alternative to replace the tuyo (medyo sosyal! Hahaha) and I would say Masarap!
Overall, I really like the place especially the elegant design of Tsokolateria Cafe. The staff provided superb service too. And the price of each dishes were very readonable. Definitely, I will going back again to this place, I will include it in my itinerary in Tagaytay.

It was Bonifacio Day, and we were at Tagaytay, stopping by restaurants in the area one after the other, and Tsokolateria was one of those many stops.
It's my first time to visit this restaurant, and if I wasn't on a food crawl, I would probably be lost, because this place is inside a hotel.
We walked up the stairs on a black carpet, and were welcomed with a beautiful lobby area. The furnitures near the entrance are just WOW. Mala-Mano po.
As you walk to the veranda, you'll be even more mesmerized by the canopy sofas and the view.
Guys, this place is named "Tsokolateria" for a reason, and the reason is because everything in the menu contains chocolate. We ordered the Tablea Champorado and the homemade crispy bacon tsoko.
Tablea Champorado P250
Mountain rice cooked in rich native tablea, served with adobo flakes, chicharon and crispy fish chips. This one's food for sharing. For us, I think there were 4 of us who shared the dish, having a bowl each. Their champorado wasn't sweet and wasn't too bitter either, which is why I loved pairing it with the salty, thin crispy fish chips.
Homemade crispy bacon tsoko P260
Crispy pork cooked like lechon kawali and cut into not-so-thin bacon strips, with tablea syrup on the side. The bacon alone was so good. You'd think that it'd go best with vinegar, but it kinda depends. We asked for vinegar to pair this bad boy with, but we later found the chocolate better partnered with the bacon than the vinegar. I do believe that only certain mixes of vinegar (with salt and pepper, etc.) will beat their tablea syrup as a dip.
Their service was also okay, but that ambiance is sure worth mentioning. I wonder how wonderful the experience would be if you were out there on sunset Maybe I should come back to find out for myself 🤔

Tagaytay is one of my favorite places in the South. I love its weather. I also like the restaurants that can be found here so I see to it that I visit Tagaytay whenever I have free time.
The last time I went here I discovered Tsokolateria. This restaurant is everything chocolate. I literally wanted to try everything in the menu but hey, it’s not possible. Gluttony, eh? Anyway, I had the following.
🔵 Tsokolate Eh! (160php) –Very thick and rich chocolate drink. I loved that this is served with batirol and that made the experience more legit. Anyway, they also have Tsokolate Ah! What’s the difference aside from eh and ah? Yes, I was also curious so I asked the server. He said that Tsokolate Eh! is richer in chocolate so it’s mas malapot compared to Tsokolate Ah! which is more diluted. Interesting, eh? uhm, ah?
🔵 Black Risotto and a dash of tablea powder (320php) – this has squid, black ink, Davao’s tablea powder and gata. This is their version of squid ink rice meal. I found this really flavorful despite its saltiness. It had really generous amount of squid but the taste of the tablea powder was not evident.
🔵 Strawberries Overload Waffle (285php) – this was heavenly. What would go wrong with cream + strawberry, right? Plus the chocolate sauce was really good that it made the combination even better.
🔵 Banana, Peanut Butter, Casuy, and Chocnut Waffle (275php) – I like to believe that all waffles from Tsokolateria are good ‘coz this second order was very delicious as well. I liked that the pieces of banana were still fresh when served. The chocnut and peanut butter went well with the waffle. The presentation was also perfect.
Tsokolateria’s ambiance is homey yet classy. There were only few customers when I visited the place making my visit more relaxing and peaceful. I also like their outdoor set-up and I think this restaurant can be a date place for couples. The service was impeccable. The servers know each of the item in the menu. And lastly, aside from the drool-worthy food, the place is also IG and |ooloo worthy. There are beautiful artworks too especially in the receiving area and near the comfort rooms.
P.S. You can also order food from The Original Hawaiian BBQ as both restaurants are located in Boutique Bed and Breakfast.

Okay, this is becoming a habit. This is one of the recommended place when visiting tagaytay. This and Hawaiian BBQ are both served in this cute boutique hotel.
My third visit here calls for a night experience. Yeah, a good excuse to indulge on tsokolateria's sweet offerings.
How can i ever express my strong recommendation for all visitors to try their sizzling champorado. All my three visits consist this snack. Really good to eat even at night, specially a chilly night. (It's chilly almost every night at tagaytay!) plus it's affordable good for 2-3 pax for 260PhP.
banana, cashew and peanut butter waffles @285PhP
Another great find! This is good for 2-4 pax. The wafgle is so crispy on the edges and flaafy in the middle. It got generous amount of banana slices and cashew nuts. There's a scoopful of not so sweet peanut butter; whip-cream on top as well. Ehat's more is it got good honey and chocolate on the sides. I really enjoyed the honey on my crispy waffle
Affordable it really is.
What's more interesting is they got chocolate sampler shots, 9 different chocolate flavors in a shot glass (over 500PhP) and a pan de sal (savory) sampler which contains 9 different pan de sal flavors fir over 800PhP. Maybe i will try one of this on my next visit.

Our 7th stop calls for an afternoon snack. There's no better place to be especially when traffic is already forming outside.
Find a good place to relax and eat good "chocolate-infused" foods here at tsokolateria.
tsokolate e chilli blends
I recently knew the difference between O and E. The tsokolate Eh is bitter and a little thick while O is sweeter and thinner. The chilli is separated from the drink, which is good because you get to adjust its mildness. I added two pieces of those chopped chilis and it was tolerable. The chilli will be felt in the throat area right after the chocolate taste
Again, the sizzling champorado was good as before. Better cause im with great company. Wifi is fast here.

Let me tell you how wowed i am at the beautiful scenery and ambience of this restaurant at tagaytay. For those who do not know, this branch is its second of its kind. The first one is at Baguio (well, to be honest i have not been to Baguio!) thank God it has a branch here so i can finally taste its chocolatey offerings!
This branch is inside the Botique Bed and Breakfast Hotel and there is about 4-5 parking space just outside. (Just in case there's no more slot, you could try the Ayala Serin Mall in front of it.
The ambience is very lovely! Given the blue skies and cool breeze of tagaytay, the place got fancy-gypsy-comfy couches and curtains al fresco! No questions asked-- i have to stay outside to experience the ambience fully even though it's 2 in the afternoon.
The server quickly took notice of me rainbow puking at the place and asked me right away where i wish to be seated. I quickly took a shaded table, but mentioned that i will be needing his assistance later to transfer my food to a beautiful spot somewhere near the terrace couches.
sizzling champorado @240ish php
This was the waiter's recommendation to me. I quickly agreed because i just want to have a quick afternoon snack rather than having a meal (which they also offer). The order came in about 10 minutes. I actually rainbow puked again as i encounter for the first time a sizzling champorado. It really was sizzling! With that order comes a mouthful of dried fish (tuyo) and chicharon! Boy! The chicharon got meaty parts too! Ask for a small bowl as you cannot eat it right from the very hot palayok. Pour the milk over the sizzling (boiling!) tablea based champorado. They use black mountain rice which is absolutely healthy, i don't mind eating a lot of it. The chicharon and tuyo PERFECT pair for the snack! I am absolutely speechless. Let me give the verdict as the best champorado ive tasted by far! This is good for two!
tsokolate eh @160php
This was recommended as well. A very solid tablea based chocolate drink. It's not right away thick to taste. It was rather thin and sweet at first then it becomes richer and darker as you drink more of it! The order was again good for two. Too bad i was alone that time-- felt greedy and at the same time guilty of consuming more than enough. Hehe.
I would not recommend this if you will be ordering the champorado already as it tastes just the same. I would suggest the one with the chocolate chicharon disc that melts as you pour over your chocolate (good for 1) or the tsokolate eh with chili (to spice things up)
I enjoyed my whole stay. It was a little let down to smell cigarette smoke from some customers sharing the ambience with me. Well at least i really get to like the food offerings and am willing to go back for some more chocolatey dishes.
Yes, there's a washroom if you turn right right after you enter the hotel reception area. Wifi is fast.
I totally spoiled myself with this experience! 🏼

Tsokolateria Artisanal Cafe. Famous for everything Cacao & Everything local.
2nd stop of our Tagaytay foodtrip last July 22 was at Tsokolateria. A romantic place for chocoholics like us to enjoy each others company. Located inside The Boutique Bed & Breakfast Tagaytay. It has an amazing view of Tagaytay and close to nature, leafy ambience.
Because of the cold weather and it was raining that early evening , we got their best seller tablea house blend. It's good for the two of us, hubby and I loved this drink. Hand made the old fashioned way.️drinks are the most popular to order here in Tsokolateria.
More than just drinks, Tsokolateria has a lot of chocolate infused dishes in its extensive menu. I tried their Banana, Peanut butter, Casuy, & Chocnit Churros waffle. It's a double waffle so it's hard to finish it. It's good for two persons already. I'm so full that time, if you loved waffle you'll surely enjoy it. Hubby got the waffle with salad.
Foodies are given more dessert options and variety that could spice up their out of town visit. Granted that chocolates dishes might be overly sweet, it is done perfectly and executed well enough to enjoy the meal here at Tsokolateria.
They have wifi here and service was good. Try it here for more chocolatier experience
