The Best Champorado You Can Order for Delivery
For a warm and homey chocolate fix.
(SPOT.ph) When you’re looking for a sweet and stick-to-your-ribs treat to warm you up on a rainy day, arguably no dish fits the bill like a warm bowl of champorado. A Filipino breakfast or merienda classic that’s somewhat comparable to Western rice pudding, champorado is a porridge of glutinous rice and chocolate that traditionally makes use of rustic and earthy tablea, while modern versions can sub in cocoa powder or straight-up bar chocolate. It’s then served with milk—evaporated, condensed, or powdered—for a creaminess that rounds out the chocolate’s robust edge. And then there’s the kicker: Dried fish, usually tuyo (Filipino dried salted fish) that goes surprisingly well with the chocolate! If you’re looking to get that cozy, fuzzy feeling right from the comfort of your home, you’re in for a treat as we’ve rounded up places that make great-tasting versions. Plus, you can get these delivered, too.
These restaurants and shops make amazing champorado that you can get delivered:
San Juan spot Verse Café landed in first place on our 2020 Top 10 Champorado in Manila list with their Champorado (P235). Their version is not only bittersweet thanks to their use of dark chocolate; it’s also topped with a chocolate disc that gradually melts into the warm champorado base. Rounding out all that chocolate is milk powder, while saltiness comes via a side of danggit that’s fried to a crisp. You can reach out to their number via Viber or mobile for delivery orders.
For orders, contact 0917-186-8333 via Viber or mobile. You can also check out Verse Café’s Facebook page.
If you’re looking for champorado that goes for big, bold chocolate flavor, be sure to check out Little Flour’s Champorado (P260/small, P460/large). It brings together the best of French and Filipino worlds, with 61% dark French couverture chocolate for a deep and full-bodied dose of chocolate, and carabao’s milk for a slightly grassy, ultra-lush creaminess. You can order via Wildflour To-Go, a.k.a. the delivery website of their sister company Wildflour.
For a no-frills champorado, Angel’s Kitchen has got your back with their Spanish Champorado with Tuyo Flakes (P278). It’s one of our favorite champorado in Manila, thanks to its bold and robust chocolate flavor (likely from the generous addition of tablea in the mix) plus spicy tuyo that balances out the depth of the chocolate. You can order a hearty bowl or two by sending them a social media message or reaching out to their Viber number.
Merienda by Pan de Manila
Yup, pan de sal shop Pan de Manila has a dine-in resto called Merienda where they cook up all sorts of Filipino eats, from sweet and savory merienda to heavier mains. You can’t miss the Champorado (P150), which they flavor with tablea for a decidedly rustic chocolate flavor, and top with a swirl of milk that you can mix in for added creaminess. Merienda by Pan de Manila is on Grabfood, Foodpanda, and Pickaroo.

Indulge by Daisy Marie
Sometimes a single-serving bowl of champorado just isn’t enough. Enter Indulge by Daisy Marie’s on-the-go, by-the-bucket versions, which hold a liter’s worth of the porridge good for two to three people… or one person with a seriously intense craving! Choose from the classic-leaning Triple Chocolate Champorado (P270) or its nuttier cousin, the Dark Adlai Champorado (P380). You can opt to get Fried Dilis (P50), Tuyo Flakes (P50), or Organic Powdered Milk (P50) on the side as well. Go ahead and fill out Indulge by Daisy Marie’s order form to get your fix.
Not that there’s anything wrong with good ol’ chocolate champorado, but has it ever occurred to you to add coffee to the mix? That’s precisely what Goldilocks has done with their Café Mocha Champorado (P109), which has glutinous rice, cocoa powder, milk, and coffee that lends an extra-robust kick. It's then topped with more milk and chocolate chips to round all the flavors together. You can head to Goldilocks’ website or give their hotline a call to try it yourself.
Miss B’s Infused Honey
The idea of sweet rice porridge goes beyond chocolate, and Miss B’s Infused Honey is out to prove exactly that with their range of champorado flavors. Aside from the rich and dusky Triple Chocolate, they also make the savory-sweet Ube-Cheese, all-out creamy White Chocolate, and even earthy-tasting Matcha flavors! These come in tubs (P199) that are good for two to three, along with your choice of milk (fresh or powdered). Just send them a message on social media to place an order.
Locavore isn’t one to shy away from taking Filipino classics to playful new heights, and their Champorado ni Speedy (P261.16) is no exception to that. You’re in for quite the flavor trip with this one as it has a champorado base, tsokolate sauce, powdered milk, fish floss, cheese, cream cheese mousse, extra grated tsokolate, milk, and condensed milk—which sounds like a lot, but it all comes together for an addictive, sweet-umami whole. You can give the Locavore branch nearest you a call, or find them on GrabFood or Foodpanda to order.
While the champorado base forms the heart and soul of the dish, it’s also the kind of treat that you can personalize and make your own by playing around with the toppings or sides. Champs Champorado lets you do just that. Aside from their basic, creamy and chocolatey champorado dubbed the Champs (P70/Mega, P90/Magnum, P110/Mammoth), you can also go for their ala-mode champorado (P100) that's topped with ice cream in Vanilla or Queso flavors. Apart from that, they’ve got a bevvy of add-ons (P15) to choose from—namely Choc Nut, Polvoron, Ube Crunch, Milk Dust, Choco Dust, Fried Pusit, Crispy Dilis, and Tuyo Flakes! Go ahead and go crazy with your bowl. You can find them on GrabFood.

Kanto Freestyle Breakfast
Kanto rides on the Filipino love for the first meal of the day with their all-day breakfast eats, to which they give fun twists. One dish that well exemplifies this is the Chocnut Champorado with Tuyo Flakes (P143), where the nostalgic Filipino candy (in the form of a crumbled topping) contributes its telltale nuttiness to the mild-tasting champorado base and generous serving of milk. With tuyo on the side, you get a push-and-pull between salty and sweet that’ll keep you going back for more bites. You can try this unconventional champorado by ordering through GrabFood or Foodpanda.
