As part of Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s ongoing commemoration of its 5th anniversary, Café Pronto presents the latest addition to its Artisanal Chocolate Bar Series, the Golden Crunch.

The Golden Crunch echoes the Hotel’s commitment to showcasing local flavours by highlighting the Albay region’s pili nut. Combined with salted caramel, this humble delicacy is enveloped in classic milk chocolate, making it a true delight to the senses. This “gilded” snack is ideal for Holiday indulgence, or a take-away item for balikbayans to remind them of home.

 

The Artisanal Chocolate Bar Series has three original variants, each featuring Filipino ingredients that are crafted carefully by the pastry and dessert chefs of the Marco Polo Ortigas Manila. The deep warmth from Albay’s siling labuyo or “bird’s eye chili” shine in every bar of Chili Caramel. The fruity flavours of dayap and calamansi play with one’s taste buds with Zest & Zing.

The interplay between the green mango’s sour notes and rice crispies make the Green Mango Delight a snack that is nearly impossible to put down. Each bar comes in bespoke, oil painting-inspired designs, making the individual bars a collector’s item.

The whole Artisanal Chocolate Bar Series is available at Café Pronto, located on the ground floor lobby of the Marco Polo Ortigas Manila. For more information on these specialty desserts and other ongoing offers, please call (+632) 7720 7720 or email restaurant.mnl@marcopolohotels.com.
