Anybody who does not like chocolate is either: 1) not a member of the human race or 2) really really insane. I mean, chocolate is a happy food and when this much chocolate is set in front of you, the bliss is unexplainable.
I first learned about Chocolate Fire from Banj and Set during one of our coffee sessions. I got even more curious when I read this article from Chuvaness. It is a two-storey restaurant located in Salcedo Village; the building it occupies was formerly a branch of BDO. My first taste of this resto was when I had coffee with Baj last week. I had Iced Mocha with Cappuccino Ice Cream (PhP 185).
I don't know what's so special about it, apart from the chocolate shavings on top, that it's so expensive. The hot version which Banj had was about 50 pesos cheaper.
I returned last Satuday with Ayen and I was able to take more photos.
Oooooh and more more chocolates!
|Chocolate barks. Yummeh.|
The chocolate barks are sold per gram depending on the kind. I'm pretty intrigued with the Hazelnut with Citrus Bark (Php 160/50g) and the Pistachio Bark (PhP 150/50g). You may buy a combination of barks, you need not buy 50 grams.
Ayen had a Banoffee Pie (Php 120).
I like their version better than Starbucks because I find the latter's version too sweet. I had a "mug" of Cappuccino (PhP 115) and a Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie (PhP 55). The cookie coated with dark chocolate was scrumptious but I was hoping for a chewy cookie version though. The cappuccino had chocolate shavings which I thought was a nice touch.
Chocolate Fire does not only serve delectable desserts but savory meals as well. Maybe I'll try that some other time. I really do have a plan to return.
Verdict: 4.5 barksChocolate Fire is located at PDCP Building Leviste St. cor. Rufino St., Salcedo Village, Makati City
