Baguio FOODTRIP(135): Choco-late de Batirol

by - 12/23/2016 12:00:00 PM

During my short vacay at Baguio last Nov 25, we had our dinner the famous Choco-Late de Batirol.

Choco-Late de Batirol is one the best garden-themed restaurants in Baguio City. Located inside Camp John Hay, they are mostly known for their hot chocolate which is made from local cacao beans. They actually use a “batirol” to mix the drink and to make it thick.

A long line of customers waiting welcomed us when we arrived. It was already dinner time and place was really jam-packed. We had to wait for about 10-15 mins on the line before we were called to dine inside.
There were looots of native tables and chair, spacious enough but due to many people wanting to dine, it got really cramped inside. Taking our orders were fast but waiting was sooo long. It took about 20 mins before our orders started to arrive. Yes, started. There were really lots of people that time so that’s the reason.

Btw, took a photo of their menu below: (click photos to enlarge)

Here’s what we ordered:

Arrozcaldo (Php95)
- Ordered this on a cold, rainy night in Baguio. Arrozcaldo was good, servings were just right. Though I find Php95 a bit expensive just for a bowl of Arroz caldo :(

Champorado con Tuyo (Php95)
- Rina ordered this one though I got a chance to taste this. Champorado was good, rich chocolate and will really make you full. Rina finds this too sweet though. The Tuyo was the best! Very salty and tasty for me. Haha

Choco-late de Batirol Traditional Blend (Php95)
- And finally had a chance to try their famous hot chocolate. The traditional blend of this chocolate drink has a very rich and thick chocolate taste. Though I was expecting that it may taste bitter or has distinct taste to it but actually, it just taste very normal for me. Also, pricey for a cup of chocolate.

My dining experience here was good as I got to experience a nice, cozy feeling while eating my dinner and taking a sip of my hot chocolate on a cold night. You won’t really get that kind of experience in Manila so it’s a night to remember. Foods and drinks were pricey but I think what you really paid for is the Baguio experience. Worth it? Yup. Glad that finally I was able to try this one.
