Choco-late de Batirol


We spent one lazy Saturday afternoon @ Choco-late de Batirol located at Igorot Garden near Gate 2, Camp John Hay, Baguio City. 
 Choco-late de Batirol is not like those air-conditioned restaurants you commonly find in Manila.
You are like inside a rainforest @ Choco-late de Batirol.
 The flooring consists of pea-sized gravel. The chairs and tables are all made of wood. 
If you are wondering what Batirol is.  It means a small pot used for cooking chocolate drink, shaped like an urn, with a stirring rod that can be rotated using your palms /chocolate pot /chocolate pot maker.
Choco-late de Batirol is a hot, thick, bittersweet blend of Cacao with a distinctive texture that calms your nerves and enriches your soul. An ancient choco-late concoction with no preservatives.

 My brother ordered Cold Batirol Choco-Banana Flavor.
I ordered the famous Cold Batirol Baguio Classic. I like it very much!

I love their Palabok! It's very delicious. Pancit Palabok is a Filipino noodle dish of Chinese origin. It is called palabok because the thin rice noodles are covered with a bright colored orange shrimp-flavored thick sauce. Aside from the sauce, pancit palabok has a toppings of prawns, wedge cut hard-boiled eggs, chicharon (pork cracklings), flaked tinapa (smoke fish), fried garlic and chopped of green onions. Then finished it with squeeze calamansi (Philippine Lemon) all over.
The delicious Turon de Langka comes in (3) three pieces per order. Banana lumpia or TurĂ³n is a Philippine dessert, made of thinly sliced bananas (preferably ripe plantains), a slice of jackfruit, dusted with brown sugar, rolled in a papery wrapper and fried. Brown sugar is further added while frying for additional sweetness.


  Verdict: Expensive but they're very delicious. Two thumbs up!

I went to Baguio on Christmas Day 2012..
I intentionally left Camp John Hay since the only nice coffee shop there was starbucks in the middle of the golf course.. never thought is such a fancy place like this.
Maybe next time I'll try! :)

I sorta like it that this plae is sort of out of the way. Coz the few times we went there, walang masyadong tao. Cozy place to have a chat with someone or even read a book while having hot choco :)

Another food hang-out in Baguio is Choco-late de Batirol. Imagine how creative and original a Pinoy is. Coming up with this eye-cathing name for a snackhause. "Binabati siguro ang tsokolate kaya ganun ang pamagat o pangalan nga negosyo." Since this is located at Igorot Garden near Gate 2, Camp John Hay, Baguio City, visitors and tourists couldn't miss this and couldn't help themselves but to try to come inside and buy their yummy foods.

The fact that the retaurant is located inside a forest setting gives me the itch to visit this place in Baguio. Truly there are a lot of great places in Baguio waiting to be discovered and this one is a nice one to try.

I have a sweeth tooth. I'm sure I'll love it here, esp since it's cold in Baguio!

Travellers Confessions said...

Hindi ko na maalala kung kailan ako nakakain ng batirol, mas lalong hindi ko na maalala ang lasa. Nako nakakatulo ng laway naman ang mga pagkaing nasa litrato.

tsismisgirl said...

Haven't been to the one in Baguio. But there is also one in San Fernando, Pampanga. And it's truly a wonderful place to stop and just enjoy a cup of rich tsokolate and some turon to go with it. And of course, their palabok is heavenly. Well, what can you expect when the owners of Chocolate de Batirol are both Kapampangan? Only the very best food!!!!

Two thumbs up!!!
