Maitre Chocolatier at Makati: Chocolate All The Way!
Went to Maitre Chocolatier at Jupiter Street(Makati) with Pat and Julie where we tried all things chocolate. I really think they’ve done it well, they incorporated their signature chocolate to every dish they have on the menu. It was AWESOME.
If you’re having problems finding the restaurant, it’s near Buendia MRT Station, beside Starbucks and Whistlestop Restaurant and Bar.
They also sell other chocolate stuff that’s usually from well known chocolate manufacturers. But for most of their food items (that’s on the menu) they use Lindt chocolate.
And we did indulge!!
For drinks we tried their Classic Dark Chocolate and Nutella Chocolate Drink, both ice blended.
Nutella lovers will love this chocolate drink! Pure creamy nutella goodness all throughout!!!!
For starters we tried their Maki Salad and Maitre Chocolatier’s Sausage. While Pat chose to start with their Pumpkin Soup.
Ever had salad with CHOCOLATE sauce?
Reminisce the taste of the ocean and plunge to the gustatory of Maki Salad dressed with Frey Blanc Chocolate, with fresh ripe mangoes and crab.
It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of vegetables so I passed on this one. They said it’s actually nice and the Frey Blanc Chocolate dressing went well with it.
This delicious pureed pumpkin complimented with creamy Villar Blanc Chocolate
You must be thinking ‘wth, chocolate on pumpkin soup?’ but Pat said it’s actually good. The chocolate didn’t act as a sweetener, it just added more creaminess to the soup. I really wanted to try this one but my choice of starter dish came and I carried on munching on that one that I totally forgot to try the soup *Silly *
Lindt Dark Chocolate filled juicy Hungarian Sausage (choice of beef or pork) served with butter toast.
I really liked this one! the contrast of flavors was great, savory with a hint of spiciness from the hungarian sausage and this deep almost bitter flavor of the lindt dark chocolate; the medley of flavors was really good.
As for the main entrees we tried their Chicken and Mushroom White Chocolate and Cheese Sauce and White Chocolate Carbonara.
Soft and tender chicken pouched in Villar Chocolat Blanc with melted cheese, mushroom, and spices served with steamed rice
The chicken was cooked just right, and i loved the flavor from the mushrooms and the cheese sauce, their white chocolate (villar chocolat blanc) helped develop this creamy sauce that really went well with the chicken.
Rich and creamy carbonara with lustful hint of Lindt white chocoalte, sprinkled with tidbits of bacon that tickles and quench your crave for chocolate.
White chocolate on carbonara?! — is this what you’re thinking? Although you might find the combination to be a bit weird, it actually tasted good. The white chocolate made this hint of sweet and providing a nice and creamy sauce. The bacon bits offsets this hint of sweetness and it was just wonderful. Being a big fan of pasta dishes, I really liked this one. I consider it a must try!
For our sweet endings we tried their Churros Sticks with Lindt Dark Chocolate Dip, Golden Euphoria, and Sweet Revenge.
Their churros was really really good! The sticks was light and thin, I swear minimal chewing is required because it almost melts in your mouth, and the dark chocolate dip was just wonderful! Definitely a Must try!
Tempting chocolate hazelnut mousse on a velvety sponge cake topped with the enchanting ferrero hazelnut.
Ohhh Ferrero / Nutella fans will LOVE this!! Just seeing the picture almost made me drool. (and you’ve got to love that plating! )
Anyway, Their golden euphoria had this moist crust under the cake, and the velvety, chocolatey ferrero middle part was just scrumptious!
Dark chocolate molten lava cake made from Lindt Excellence Dark (70%), filled with oozing sweet and vengefully spicy chocolate lava served with vanilla ice cream.
For readers that are subscribed to HF’s Facebook Page, This one might be familiar, I used it as a teaser for this post
Their sweet revenge was my top pick actually. Your first bites around the outer part of the cake will give you this overwhelming chocolate flavors (sweet) and when you continue and hit the center a hint of spiciness becomes evident. Immediately after getting a spoonful of the center (That is spicy) I recommend you quench it with a bit of their vanilla ice cream. Eating it was really a bliss Again, it’s definitely a must-try!
VERDICT: We had an awesome dining experience at Maitre’s Chocolatier. I loved how they were able to incorporate their own chocolate to all of their menu items.
VALUE FOR MONEY: Food items here are a bit pricey, but if you’re willing to shell out money for good food and for your love of all things chocolate, then you should give Maitre Chocolatier a visit!
