Choco-late de Batirol is a popular dining place in Baguio City for both local residents and tourists. The restaurant serves traditional chocolate drink made from ground cacao beans. The place is located inside Camp John Hay where you can expect a feel-good ambiance closer to nature.
When we were at the cafe, a staff has shown us how Choco-late de Batirol makes the drink. I was amazed at how they prepare the drink the traditional way using a wooden rod popularly called as “batirol”.
The chocolate drink is thick, rich and flavorful. The bittersweet taste and the aroma makes you want to sip more. They offer the chocolate drink in different variants. They have the traditional blend (which was my favorite), strawberry (Baguio blend), cinnamon, orange, choco mallows and almond. Each serving of the traditional blend drink cost P80.
Aside from the traditional tsokolate, Choco-late de Batirol also offers different type of Filipino favorite food. During our visit, they served us with bibingka a local rice cake topped with freshly-grated coconut and suman sa lihia a sticky rice cake topped with grated coconut and brown sugar. The bibingka costs P105 while the suman sa lihia is sold at P64.
So, when in Baguio City, visit Choco-late de Batirol and enjoy a cup of hot traditional chocolate drink while in Camp John Hay.
