(SPOT.ph) Is any Tagaytay or Baguio trip even complete without at least one of their famous restaurants on your itinerary? If it's chocolate that you seek (be it in a sweet or savory light!), Tsokolateria is your best bet. The café—which has branches in the said cities—serves an array of brunch dishes all infused with chocolate—stick-to-your-ribs champorado, lechon kawali served with cacao nibs, mugs of thick hot chocolate, and more. Tsokolateria used to have a branch in Quezon City that's since closed, but they might just soon be making their Manila comeback—this time at Greenbelt 5—as we're guessing based on a tarpaulin we spotted in the mall!
It looks like Tsokolateria is opening in Manila:
We spotted a tarpaulin of Tsokolateria on the second floor of Greenbelt 5, near the Dela Rosa Walkway beside Ayala Museum. Take a look:
Our hopes are definitely up—especially considering Tsokolateria's Chef-Restaurateur Happy Ongpauco-Tiu recently partnered with Visum Ventures (the folks behind restaurants like Salt & Ice, Oh My Greek, and more). In a statement, Visum Ventures shares they'll be "joining forces" to open more branches of Tsokolateria as well as fellow Ongpauco-Tiu resto Pamana around the Metro. Expect to see these establishments at Greenbelt 5, SM Aura, Estancia, and Greenhills—locations said to be their initial areas of expansion in the Metro.
