Both branches’ opening dates have yet to be confirmed, but SM Supermalls said that the SM Aura branch will be opening to the public first.

So far, the artisanal restaurant only has two branches, including one in Baguio City. It’s usually located beside Filipino restaurant Pamana and/or Hawaiian BBQ Ribs, which are all restaurants of the Happy Concept Group.

Tsokolateria was founded in 2015 and is known for expertly infusing local cacao in both its sweet and savory dishes. The destination restaurant “famous for everything cacao and everything local” is also famed for its native tablea batirol blends.

The original Tsokolateria is located at The Boutique Bed & Breakfast along Emilio Aguinaldo Highway, Silang Junction South, Tagaytay, Cavite. –
