(SPOT.ph) There’s something about a good, fudgy chocolate cake that has the power to make life feel a little better, if only for the 10 to 15 minutes it takes to polish off a slice. (Make that five, on really stressful days.) They’re basically the best way to get your chocolate fix when you’re in a #TreatYoSelf mood, giving you a little more textural variety than, say, a brownie or a standard chocolate bar—and when done right, you get a real decadent dose of chocolate that soothes the senses.

While there are excellent versions in Manila that require pre-ordering, there are just times that you need to have your fix right here, right now—and on-demand delivery apps are a godsend in those moments. Thankfully, you can get a great chocolate cake with just a few taps on your smartphone, as these restaurants that are available on GrabFood and/or Foodpanda have got you covered.

You might not think much of Big Al’s Decadent Chocolate Cake (P385/loaf, P700/junior, P1,200/birthday) when you first see it—it’s among the more humble-looking desserts on this list, being a no-frills, cake-plus-frosting treat that’s simply served in a tray. But don’t you underestimate it: this cake is an ode to simplicity done well, even topping our 2019 Top 10 Chocolate Cakes in Manila list. Its cake base is moist and fluffy while its frosting delivers cocoa-filled goodness without being saccharine-sweet. The result? Totally harmonious and balanced forkfuls that prove you don’t need to rely on excess to stand out.

There’s a cake for every craving at Mary Grace, but the Chocolate Truffle (P225/slice, P549/mini, P1,425/whole) is a true gem. With a rich chocolate-cake base coupled with a generous helping of ganache (one that's made with Callebaut chocolate, known for its fairly intense yet well-rounded chocolate flavor), this dessert is as swoon-worthy as it gets. Looking for a chocolate cake that’s more on the old-fashioned end of the spectrum? Mary Grace also makes a Classic Chocolate Cake (starts at P197/slice) that’s totally worth a try, too!

Salted Chocolate Cake from Wildflour

A consistent contender on our Top 10 Chocolate Cake lists, Wildflour’s Salted Chocolate Cake (P420/slice) is a solid fave among those who take their chocolate game seriously. This tall cake has three layers (note that Wildflour’s direct delivery leg makes two-layer versions too) of a dark and fudgy chocolate cake and frosting, plus buttery caramel and a touch of sea salt for a savory contrast that works. A slice is large enough to be shared—though we won’t judge you if you end up polishing off the whole thing!

Death by Tablea from Chocolat

With a name like Chocolat, this dessert shop rightfully delivers excellent chocolate cakes. You’ve got a couple to choose from, including the Deep Dark Classic (P85/slice, P380/six inches, P685/whole) and Bailey’s (P95/slice, P405/six inches, P725/whole)—but the Death by Tablea (P115/slice, P490/six inches, P875/whole) is by far our top pick. It’s got a suave yet robust chocolate flavor, thanks to the use of good ol’ Filipino tablea; pair it with a cup of their Brewed Coffee (P60) and you’re all set for a sweet afternoon.

Nono’s Chocolate Oblivion from Nono’s

Most chocolate cakes are a relatively simple affair of cake and frosting, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But once in a while we crave texture, and in those times, Nono’s famous Chocolate Oblivion (P215/slice, P1,915/nine inches) absolutely fits the bill. Here, layers of chocolate cake, whipped chocolate cream, and a crunchy-caramelized walnut praline mingle together into a complex whole, but one that doesn’t stray too far from the realm of comfort. If you prefer a more straightforward dessert, you can also go for their Meline’s Chocolate Cake (P215/loaf), which has chocolate cake and fudge frosting and comes in a tray.

Lola Cafe is one of those Filipino restaurants that isn’t afraid to play around with traditional Filipino food, or incorporate Filipino elements into different dishes from around the world. Their signature chocolate cake (P370/mini, P895/regular), for one, is made with local bean-to-bar brand Auro Chocolate. True enough, its distinctly earthy, cacao-forward chocolate flavor shines in every slice and second helping—and it sure doesn’t hurt that its ganache is silky-smooth, and its cake, decadent as can be.

If your motto in life is to go big or go home, then boy do we have the dessert for you. As the name implies, Workshop’s 17-Layer Chocolate Cake (P391/slice, P2,640/whole) has a whole 17 layers of chocolate cake and Valrhona Araguani 72% dark chocolate ganache that mirror each other’s deep, dark, well-rounded chocolate flavor. Topped with a dark-chocolate mirror glaze, there’s definitely enough chocolate in this one to please even the most insane of cravings.

Classic Chocolate Cake from Starbucks

Starbucks is a go-to for their cups of joe, but their desserts are well worth putting under the spotlight, too. In particular, the Classic Chocolate Cake (P215/slice) is a standout, thanks to its dense and moist cake and silky, not-too-sweet fudge frosting that come together for a moderately-dark tasting whole. Sure doesn’t hurt that Starbucks is practically everywhere and many branches are open until 11:59 p.m. on weekdays and 10 p.m. on weekends, making it easy to get your fix when the late-night craving strikes.

Valrhona Chocolate Cake from Prologue

Though best known for their savory French-Japanese fare, Prologue’s Valrhona Chocolate Cake (P300) shouldn’t be missed. Each slice combines a moist and plush Valrhona chocolate-cake base and chocolate ganache that makes for even deeper, darker-tasting forkfuls. It impresses with its topnotch chocolate flavor and hardly needs embellishment, though you do get a few almonds on top that you can nibble on between bites.

Salted Caramel Cake from Sugarbee

Chocolate and caramel are a match made in heaven, and Sugarbee’s Salted Caramel Cake (P580/six inches with one layer, P750/eight inches with one layer) might just be one of the best desserts around that highlights the pairing. It delivers both elements with perfect cohesion, being made with a chocolate cake with a moist yet fluffy open crumb, and a melt-in-the-mouth dark chocolate ganache tinged with salted caramel. It’s then topped with sea salt for a salty counterpoint that makes it even harder to resist going back for another slice.
