Choco-late de Batirol in Camp John Hay: Reviving Traditions

If you are a chocolate lover, Camp John Hay in Baguio may not seem like the most obvious place to visit. However, it absolutely should be. Not only that Camp John Hay is home to its own amazing forest watershed reservation, but also for its Choco-late de Batirol. There is no other better chocolate drink that would stick to my mind other than what Choco-late de Batirol can offer. You can go so much high quality chocolate in a drink that it will make your head spin.

Anyone can enter the small shop, but it isn’t exactly the most welcoming place today. Since the place is under renovation, they only have menu for take-out, and that includes the best-tasting choco-late de batirol!

Choco-Late de Batirol is made the traditional way. Thus, the tag line “reviving traditions”. They first heat the drink in the stove. Then, they transfer it to a golden metal pot which for me is very cute. They use a wooden stirring rod called “batirol”. Using the palm of the hands, the batirol is rotated to stir the drink. This causes the thick texture of the drink. Their best-selling drink is the traditional drink which is the plain hot choco. We also ordered the Baguio version which has strawberry flavor added to the drink. They are both deliciously made!

Choco-late de Batirol : The Making

The drink was very rich with thick consistency. If you are a fan of raw chocolate, then, choco-late de batirol may be your heaven which is the reason why I wanted to post this.

Wait, there is more!

Apart from the chocolate drinks, they also offer other foods which are perfect for the cold weather in Baguio. However, we only ordered the drinks since that was the main purpose why we got there. But, I am pretty sure bibingka and suman + hot choco is a a perfect match!

I have never heard of Camp John Hay in Baguio before, but as a chocolate lover, I feel like I’m really missing out! Clearly, this is a place that I need to get over to experience myself.
