We ‘ve been visiting Chocolate de Batirol for the past few years .  We never grow tired of the quaint rustic ambiance.

I often love coming here just to sit and enjoy warm native delicacies with the cool Baguio weather (24 degrees when we went this summer).

We decided to order the Group of 4 meal for Php 480 which has 4 Original Chocolate de Batirol with one Bibingka and one Suman sa Lihia.

Chocolate de Batirol is a hot thick bittersweet native chocolate drink made with roasted cocoa and ground peanuts. The chocolate is prepared in copper pitchers called tsokolateras.  Batirol is a kind of wooden whisk used to stir in the ground peanuts to give the cocoa a grainy texture.

There are other kinds of chocolate de batirol flavors like orange, strawberry or almond, but the original one is still our favorite.

The bibingka is a local rice cake made the old fashioned way with banana leaves.  Ground rice flour, coconut milk, eggs, and baking powder with fresh dessicated coconut on top.
