What’s better than chocolate and kisses? Are there really other stuff better than these two? Hmmm. This I want to find out. 🙂 Located inside the UP Diliman campus is a restaurant that offers food that’s said to be comparable to chocolate and kisses combined. Chocolate Kiss(even its name spells it out already) can be found on the first and second floor of Bahay ng Alumni.
This is one of those places where dining is truly delightful and gratifying. Choices are abundant and you certainly can’t go wrong because they serve really good food. Chocolate Kiss is the restaurant we often visit during those times when we just received our allowance or aced a killer exam and deserved a treat. There’s a fixed menu where the regular bestsellers are featured and a weekly menu which features daily specials.
First thing that one should order when dining in Chocolate kiss is the house iced tea, it’s unlimited by the way (yahoo!) It’s an unsweetened iced tea that comes with a small pitcher of honey for that desired sweetness. Truly a great way to quench and satisfy your thirst. 🙂
After getting a fill of the iced tea and already craving for the main deal, a thorough look of the menu is recommended to be able to really decide what will merit the meal’s main course. Bestsellers are the hickory-smoked spareribs and the chicken kiev. I ordered the chicken kiev. This dish is a more tender version of cordon bleu with savory cream cheese in the middle topped with luscious gravy and served with rice or bun and rich buttered vegetables on the side. It was great by the way. The hickory-smoked spareribs is also delectable, also very tender and smothered in rich hickory barbecue sauce which gives it its sweet yet tangy taste. Other yummy favorites like kalbechim, beef stroganoff and popular pasta dishes are also available. Chocolate kiss is also known for its Filipino dishes such as sinigang and “silog” meals.
Another thing that makes Chocolate kiss popular is their cakes, they serve really yummy and luscious cakes. They’re well known for their blueberry and strawberry cheesecakes and and for my ultimate favorite, the devil’s foodcake. It’s sweet and every bite gives you that tingling sensation on your tongue. I believe that the rich icing, the texture of the cake and the moist chocolate cream in the middle play around with the four different tastes thus creating that tittilating experience. It’s truly heavenly for something with the word devil in its name.
Overall, the Choco Kiss experience is something I think everyone should experience. 🙂 The food’s great and it has a friendly ambiance perfect for dates, buddy lunches and family outings. So is it really better than chocolates and kisses? Try it and you’ll soon find out too. 🙂 It’s located in UP Diliman, Quezon City, Ang Bahay ng Alumni, R. Magsaysay street with tel. no. (02) 433-7382.
