Everyday I put eating chocolates on my To-do-list, just to make sure I get something done by the end of the day. I just love chocolates- may it be dark, white, with nuts or with fruits(You can check my Facebook wall photos if you don’t believe me. ;)) One night, a good friend texted me that a new restaurant is celebrating their grand opening the next day and the owner had invited me to join them. I declined since I got other stuff to take care the next day and asked what’s the restaurant is serving and he answered it’s a chocolatier and everything on the menu has chocolate on it! Without any hesitation, I retracted my “NO” and said COUNT ME IN! 😉
Maitre Chocolatier is fascinating and intriguing. With chocolate on everything on the menu is just heaven to every chocoholic. It may sound weird for some – sausage with chocolates? pizza with chocolates? I tried them and I tell you their good! Today though, I will only be featuring four of the desserts offered at Maitre Chocolatier.
Maitre’s Virtuous Temptation -Lindt White Strawberry Mousse Cake! Divine white chocolate mousse whipped with slices of fresh strawberries and Lindt White Chocolate. (168php+). Ohhh lala! I love!
Maitre’s Golden Euphoria is their bestseller. Ferrero Hazelnut Crunch Cake. Chocolate hazelnut mousse on a velvety chocolate spongecake topped with Ferrero Rocher Chocolate. (188php+) It’s best shared since it gets to be very sweet halfway!
Maitre’s Guiltless Crime- Frey Lait Fruit Tartlet. Creamy Frey Lait Chocolate filled in heart-shaped tartlet topped with kiwi,mango and melon. (Price: 120php+). The fresh fruits with Frey chocolate is a great combination, thought the tart is a bit hard, so better eat each heart tart in one munch to prevent everything from falling down.
Maitre Crepe with Lindt white chocolate sauce topped with nuts. Price 168php+
