Death by Tablea Cake

Tablea is a Spanish word-meaning tablet, and tsokolate is a Filipino word-meaning chocolate.Tsokolate is usually associated with a thick hot chocolate specially made from cacao balls.

It is believed that the Spanish persuaded the growing of cacao trees and the developing of the beans into cacao tablets during the mid 17th century. Chocolate was introduced to the Philippines by Spain via the Manila-Acapulco galleon trade. Cultivation and consumption was encouraged by the demand for hot chocolate drinks during breakfast on special occasions. -Source

I loved how they stayed true to the Tablea aesthetics by placing cacao shavings as garnish for the cake. Very moist, not too sweet, perfect with brewed coffee.

Death by Tablea Cake. Chocolate cake with bittersweet icing made with native cacao and condensed milk. Php 75 for a slice, Php 345 for 6 inches, Php 620 for 8 inches.

  5. Which has better chocolate cakes? This or Xocolat?

  6. Hi Sir! The chocolate cake of xocolat is better at first taste, but nakakaumay siya after a while cause it's so sweet. So I would recommend the Classic Deep Dark of Chocolat: =)
