After running some errands at a nearby mall in North Reclamation Area, I gave myself a good pat at the back for being so productive and  said “hey, me, myself and I need to celebrate!” haha. Okay okay, that’s just a lame excuse. The truth is , I feast a lot (the blog gives it away , no mystery there). Well, as Julia Child said, “People who love to eat, are always the best people.” #TrueThat

So I decided to take on the buffet spread of Tokyo Table. Been hearing a good bunch of people talking about Tokyo Table‘s great buffet, but I tend to temper down my expectation on buffets for I know only a few great places here in Cebu that carry an awesome food wagon.

I was greeted with a warm smile as I entered the restaurant and walking to my table, waitresses I pass by welcomed me with smiles, that made me feel more dashing. Teehee.

So here’s the spread. One side of the buffet are raw meat for grilling. Squid, shrimps, beef, chicken, pork, hotdogs and  hams. On the other side are asian favorites like lemon chicken, korean pork barbecue, spicy squid and etc. At one corner is  a dimsum station where you can find the soup, siomai and some steamed ribs. Some sushi varieties,  Japanese rolls, tempura and calamares on the chef’s spread. There’s also a dessert station, where you can choose from an array of cakes, an ice cream station and DIY halohalo! You also get an unlimited fill of sodas and iced tea.

My Tokyo Table favorites would be the orange chicken, spicy squid, tempura and korean barbecue. And moving to the grilling spread, the spicy beef, chicken and pork  bulgogis are my top picks.

I was feeling under the weather yesterday (and no it isn’t because Valentine’s Day is springing up this weekend 😛 ) so  I drove to the city to find some good eats to shake off the gloomy feeling. Well it’s no mystery that chocolates makes us happy, the good rich mouthfeel of it makes us chirpy already. And gladly Cebu has some superb artisan chocolateries that use  local cacao to supply us with the happy hormones we need , and the 3-month old TCC or The Chocolate Chamber is one of them.

At first, I thought it was Singapore’s TCC / The Coffee Connoisseur that branched out in our metro but learned that The Chocolate Chamber is  an arm of our very own chocolate maker Ralfe Gourmet Inc. Walking in The Chocolate Chamber, you get a similar ambiance when you step in a TWG shop, but with a Cebuano hospitality and chocolate drinks instead of teas. 🙂 

It was around 4PM when I arrived, just in time for  TCC’s Chocolate High Tea. The set is served only from 1521-1721 hours (3:21PM-5:21PM).

The Chocolate Chamber’s Chocolate High Tea consists of Raisin Scone, Lemon Scone, Homemade Marmalade, Pralines, Artisan Sandwiches of the day, green salad and one cup of Hot chocolate of your preferred flavor. TCC’s Chocolate High Tea is priced at 550PHP for the set. The set serves  2 people.

The pralines and the rich traditional chocolate/ sikwate were the highlights of my afternoon!  And now I am smiling. ^_^

The Chocolate Chamber also serves Filipino favorites like chocolate ensaymada and  pandesal . Pizza and sandwich are also on the menu. Cookies and cakes also available.
