Cup of Tabliya at Tablea

Pin It Now!
I've seen Tablea popping around the metro almost everywhere I go. I have never tried them out although I'm a big fan of hot chocolate. It was not until recently that I went to Tablea Chocolate Cafe in JY Square Mall.

The first time I went there was to make a seatwork. We were allowed to go out of class and research for the things that were required of us. One of the nearest Wi-Fi spots that were already open at 8AM was Tablea in JY Square Mall. 

I went there and just ordered Silvanas and a bottle of water. I did my supposedly "seat work" and left before the end of my class.

Silvanas that look like mallows!

The silvanas didn't taste as I expected them to be. I was hoping for the Sans Rival-ish silvanas. Their Silvanas were made from Cocoa. When you take a bite, you get to taste the bitter-ish flavor of the Cocoa that is covering the silvanas. The Tablea silvanas reminds me of chocolate of mallows becuase of its mallow-ish shape. Although I wasn't quite satisfied with their Silvanas, due to my weird personal taste, it tastes good in its own rights. The best thing about the Tablea silvanas, as the boyfriend discovered is its Cocoa aftertaste that lingers in your mouth after eating the entire piece. Their silvanas cost P25 per piece.

Our Sipping Hot Chocolate on a rainy late afternoon.

The second time I went there was after our rainy trekking activity. I was with the boyfriend and our common mountain friend. It was one of the best ways to end a day of being drenched in the rain. They were all drenched except me. LOL. A hot chocolate was perfect on a rainy day.

So we went and ordered Sipping Hot Chocolate for P65 per cup. The sales clerk said that this is a mixture of traditional and Belgian chocolate. We were somehow expecting the usual homemade tabliya but we got chocolates in thick and concentrated consistencies. One could really feel the chocolate with every sip.

Peanut butter-y Buckeyes. ♥

I also got Buckeyes. These are bite-sized peanut butters covered in dark chocolate. It is really sweet and will make you want water after every bite. I like its softness on the tongue. I adore how they served the Buckeyes. They drizzled chocolate syrup all over which looked very pretty. This is definitely a must-try. You get one piece for P15.

Mallow clusters.

The Mallow Clusters were also good. It's a mixture of dark chocolate, cacao nibs and walnuts. The texture of the Mallow Clusters go from soft to rough and it's a mixture of different flavors. A small bar costs P50.

There are also other Tablea branches around the metro. There's one in SM City Cebu's Northwing and in Robinson's Cybergate Mall.

@fashioneggplant: Unfortunately, Tablea only have branches in Cebu. Yea, you should try it! It's also a new way to try out hot chocolate. It's so unlike Figaro's hot chocolate, which I also love. Drop by Tablea when you happen to be around the city! ;)
