Just Two Cups & A Cake Slice | Chocolate Fire

Chocolate Ganache Cake

Me & my team recently found ourselves in Makati, waiting for the downpour to stop before heading back to the office.  A cup of coffee was inevitable!

I've been hearing about Chocolate Fire, a self-service chocolate cafe in Makati, so instantly I grabbed the chance to visit it while we're in the area.  The display counter is filled with various chocolate bars & concoctions.  My eyes feasted on the selection, a chocolate haven indeed! Unfortunately, the crew shooed us away when they saw my camera ready to take some pictures. A bit offended, I lost interest in the store completely.  I mean, they could have told me discretely (so I recall).

Anyway, since we're stuck, we just ordered their Happy Hour Promo, two cups of coffee and a slice of ganache cake for P350. After all, it's still CHOCOLATE (my most favorite thing in the world), so I might as well make better of our stay there. (We were ready to order more nga eh!)

Chocolate Garnache Cake (P185)
I'll just refrain from further commenting on the cake & coffee, it's ordinary.  The dim lighting in and outside the store made the food shoot difficult.   (Just rumbling here...)

After all that has been said, I honestly would still like to try their chocolate bars & chips.  Ohh, well... next time, may be.


P.S.  Some bagito foodie lessons from this incident:
  1. Do your homework. Read reviews & ask around
  2. Ask permission before taking pictures (of the store) to avoid awkward moments
  3. Hard to have good judgement on things when your thoughts/ emotions are clouded.  Keep calm & eat chocolate! ;)
P.S.S. Chocolate Fire's Happy Hour Promo: get a cup of coffee and a slice of cream sponge cake for P200 or get two cups of coffee and a slice of ganache cake for P350.Promo is available from Monday to Friday, 3 to 5 p.m.

Chocolate Fire is at G/F PDCP Building Leviste Street corner Rufino Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City. Tel. No. 840-3473, (0920) 605-8692
