This cafe has already a place in my heart. Whenever I get lazy to search for new places where I could finish my schoolworks, this place is always my plan B. Aside from it gives a homey feeling to its diners, it has all the things I need like power outlets, free WiFi, spacious tables, and of course a hint of chocolate on all their food and drinks to give me a boost of energy!

For this visit, I ordered Pork Belly and Mocha Misu. The Pork Belly comes with 4 slabs of succulent grilled pork belly, rice, cacao-bagoong sauce, potato gratin and kangkong shavings. The cacao-bagoong sauce is perfect for the pork belly! This dish is cooked to perfection, no kidding. This is a must-try 128077🏼 And no doubt if I go back here, this is what I am going to order again. I just loved how all the flavors neutralized each other and it was just toothsome.

The Mochamisu I've been eyeing every time I go here which for some reason I was not able to try, was yummy but overly sweet. I didn't take the sweetness of this cake, so I just brought it home instead.

Cafe Xocolat never fails with preparing and giving justice to all the chocolates they use on their food and drinks 128150 Their food preparation is always excellent which adds up to the appetite of their diner.

It was my last night in Manila and it's starting to be a habit of being with |ooloo friends before I fly out. It was a great night, indeed. And I must say, I'm clingy with them already, and I honestly missed them when I got back.
We were gonna ride with Jayson going to BGC and this is where we were to meet up. It's been a while since I've been here. I think it has become bigger somehow. It's still the same cozy house turned cafe though. 128568

While waiting, we shared a cup of their Xocolatte. It was so good! I'm not a big fan of coffee, but this I really loved! The dark chocolate brought out a depth in flavor to the coffee, and the cream was nice and frothy! Will definitely back for it. 128571

I've been trying different cafes to study because I just can't get anything done when I'm at home. Xocolat's one of the places where I can study, have a date with the special one, or just simply hang out with my friends. It has free wifi and power outlets. And big servings 128077🏼

I had the Xocolat Chicken Pasta and Vanilla Mudslide. Man, the pasta was soooo good!! Cacao shavings add a decadent twist to the pasta's creamy sauce. And I like how the chocolate didn't overpower the taste of the rich creamy sauce.

When I can't decide what drink to order, I always go for the Vanilla Mudslide. Yummy and refreshing as always 128077🏼

So from booze, let's go to coffee. And if since i'm passing by c5, xocolat is sure the right place for me to enjoy latte. Again, this chocolate-espresso latte made my night. Exquisite tasting chocolate with a new order of cake
128204mango yoghurt cheesecake
Quite a good one, nonetheless its an old stock (by the way the cheese felt in my mouth) i kinda did not taste the mango there! The yoghurt is pretty fit with the cream cheese!! The crust was okay.. Not so hard and not so loose. The crust was sweet. The toppings is kinda different: pili nuts, oats and some more of the crust.

Xocolat also sells chocolate drinks good for gift giving:
128262rush- with coffee
128262Wicked - chilli
128262Dark
128262Organic
128262Original

They ran out of stock ng dark chocolate (might be a best seller)

When i stay alone at a cafe, i meditate on things in the past and things that might happen.. It's like a dose of yoga for me.. Only gaining fats. Sometimes (i think i mentioned this before) i like to look at other people's reactions. It makes me more.. Open minded?

I love the food and the ambiance! I never imagined chocolate would taste that good on pasta! The place was also really nice and the staff was mindful of all the customers. Definitely coming back soon! <3

Hmmmm... That was some spicy xoco chicken! Tasted good but too spicy that it kills your taste buds halfway through the plate. The potato gratin was bland and too rich to complement an already richly flavored main dish. Perhaps steamed carrots and potatoes would complement this plate better to have a clean taste versus the thick rich flavor of the chicken and it's sauce. Lots of rice , good healthy serving. The chicken was too fat though. :(

Good thing I ordered a honey Dalandan shake which offset the impact of this entree on my palette.

Liked but wouldn't order this plate again. Will try other things in the future...

Ah.. I went to chocolate heaven for a while to get some rest from the hectic business of getting permits from goverment agencies..
128204Bangus lemon pasta @225
I always love sour pastas. If i dont order tomato based italian flavor, i go for these oil based tastes... Only weird because i did not get to taste the bangus... It tasted anchovies.. Hiwever i liked it. Siyempre goes with that are some pitted chopped olives, parmesan, ground black pepper (not overpowering which is really good) some herbs and that one thong that i liked the best: lemon rind! Yes!! It doesn't tast bitter at all! Enjoyed all of them
128204xocolat latte
Check out my IG video on howw they serve it in front of you. Again.. Chocolate heaven! I mentioned to them that the chocolate is overpowering the espresso but then it's fine with me. Really. The small cookie served was cute and light... Paramg polvoron (ok what is the english translation of polvoron?)

Great service! Very attentive.
Though the music has some .. Ugh.. At that one time calvin harris' 'feel so close to you right now'..?! Kinda off... But just once.

As a kid, I grew up watching Jacques Torres create all sorts of things out of chocolate--from sculptures, to all sorts of edible installations-- I found that this is the closest thing we have in the Philippines to that type of innovation. This is every chocolate lover's dream! There's always something new to try on their menu. I recommend the hot chocolate 128076🏼 #loolooexplorerpackgiveaway

Some of their dishes looks so exciting! Cannot wait to try more!

got intrigued by this chocolate topped pasta with chocolate rubbed chicken tenders. So i got that... So if you were thinking of chocolate sauce.. Forget it. It's not..it's just topped with. I've tasted the chocolate alone.. It was dark.. And it was goya... I know how it tastes.  The chicken were tender. The chocolate rub tasted nothing.. Texture like pepper...
The rest were aldente and white sauce. White sauce tasted like mushroom and garlic and cream.. It was good enough.

Alongside with that were two pcs sour dough bread... Best to eat while hot... I mean everything.

My chocolate ganache was icy nonethless the taste was rich enough.

Waiting for someone like 2 hrs means a lot... So i ordered their xocolat latte and 'that xocolat cake'... I liked the way they serve you the xocolat latte... They serve you a grande glass with xocolate tabs they they will pour espresso them the steamed milk... It tasted great! Really beany... I mean you'll taste the coffee bean first but then before it becomes bitter it somehow joins to the cocoa bean taste to chocolate sweetness.. It's partly dark but not sso..

That xocolat cake never fails to be dry! All moist and plain xocolat cake.. For moisty cake peeps there.. Try this basic cake of theirs for only 95 per slice..

Total 'damage' (reference Roegan T ) at that time was roughly 550. :)

Katipunan food crawl!127860

Went at Katipunan one weekday morning and looking for a breakfast place before going to Ateneo. Finally for so many attempts, I finally end up at Xocolat. I always wanted to try this place coz I love chocolates 127851

The place is very homey and perfect for breakfast. Got their two best seller. Xocolat chicken pasta and taza de xocolat!

Xocolat chicken pasta - cacao rubbed chicken strips tossed in a light cream sauce topped with chocolate shavings (195). Taste liked chicken Alfredo with chocolate on top, a different pasta dish flavor I ever tasted. Serving is generous .

Taza de Xocolat- rich and opulent. This is their signature hot chocolate, sugar free. You'll love this one especially if ur a chocolate person just like me.

From hot choco, to pasta to cakes , everything was chocolate 127851 service was fast. A bit pricey but worth the experience . They have wifi and staffs are accommodating and place was serene, perfect for hot choco1280771278519749

Oh boy. I expected so much from this cafe since I have heard about it and seen it couple of times. Tried it together with my sister since it seems to be the only decent resto in that street where we were caught in a traffic jam. We tried the following:

Truffle Honey Spam
Chorizo Pasta
Beef tapa
Crack pie
Chocolate shake with brownie chunks
Dalandan Juice

Is the cook from Pampangga or something? Seems like he is so font of putting sugar into everything! Everything is sweet! Tooooooo sweet in fact.

All the dishes we had were too sweet. I understand the concept of chocolate and putting chocolate in everything but, the owner/chef should learn the balance of taste - and food presentation. Even the cakes and drinks were tooooooo sweet! The whipped cream not even well whipped! Its over whipped. Jeez.

I shall never come back. :(

Not really a fan of chocolate cake but I liked this one! 128525 Chocolate salted caramel cake from Xocolat!

The bittersweet tablea and salty caramel taste melts in your mouth. AHHHHH HEAVEN! 128525 I liked it better when I froze if overnight. I was like eating an ice cream cake! 12852210084

Not really sure about the price though, it was my brothers who bought this one. 128522

We ordered:
Xocolat Chicken Pasta: it was ok but the chicken was tough and too bitter for my taste
Choco Lava: overrated! Zagu taste a lot better and way cheaper
Churros: over cooked it was too crisp almost tough, greasy

Service: SUPER BAD!
Waited for 25 minutes but only the pasta was served. We already finished our pasta and the rest of our order was not served still.
Followed up several times but still waited for a long time.
After 50 minutes since we ordered we decided to take the rest of the food out (since it's already prepaid, how can we cancel it????) and it felt like that was just the time they finished prepping the food.
50 minutes???? Seriously???
NEVER GOING BACK HERE AGAIN!
Such a waste of money and time 128532128532128532
