After our dinner at Mangetsu we went to the nearby Maitre Chocolatier Boutique Cafe for dessert.
It was my first time to try out this place. That’s unusual for a chocoholic like me.
Jin told me that the owners were also the Philippine distributors of some of my favorite brands of chocolates. I really like Spanish brand Valor’s 70% dark chocolate in either plain, orange, forest berries or mint.
Too bad they don’t sell my favorite Lindt Création Le Noir Orange.
Before I used to buy Villars Chocolate Noir with candied orange peels only in Manila and Singapore’s duty free. I’m so happy it’s now in most supermarkets in Manila.
The menu said this cake was good for 2-3 people and that was perfect since we just wanted to share one dessert. When the cake came out it was really small, maybe 3″ in diameter. I immediately thought, “how will this be enough for all of us?”
hidden desire – Lindt moist dark chocolate cake P320
Surprisingly the cake was super dense yet moist and really chocolatey. You really can’t eat that much. In the end Fran even took home the leftover cake. So they were right. It’s really good for 2-4 people even.
