Go Chocolate or Cheese fondue for PHP550+ this Valentine’s Day in Chelsea Grand Café BGC

DSC_0240

Have a different dining experience in a Western-European setting, here in Chelsea Grand Café in Serendra BGC, I think this is the most romantic dining place in the area, because the restaurant glows at night and also the food is great!! oh especially with that pasta with truffle oil. Its my 2nd time to dine here and its different during night time here in Chelsea Grand Café, its better to dine here at night, because of the light ambiance and the positive aura it reflects.

My 1st time to dine here was around lunch time,  I encountered their breakfast meal that is offered for morning only, but this time, a different mood is experienced when dining at night and I’m sure the girls will love to eat here this Valentine’s Day. (read my post below for the promo)

Chelsea Grand Café
The name of this café is inspired from the Chelsea market in New York City. It’s their own version of a palengke, but its different that we have here, it’s an outdoor market that sells everything fresh – veggies, fish, meat and fruits.

Chelsea Grand Café is not just a café or a restaurant, its also a market store that sells fresh goodies and bottled ingredients for cooking

Garlic Cheese Fondue
PHP 795

It’s a big platter of bite size fruits, veggies, bacons and shrimps. You pick the bite size food and dip it in a hot melted garlic cheese. The cheese melts quickly and cools quickly, so don’t worry if you feel that you might get a cheese burn on your lip, the cheese started to cool as you pull it away from the candle heated bowl.

Here’s an asparagus wrapped in bacon
We dip the bite size food into the garlic cheese and munch it with a warm embrace of garlic cheese.
Very yummy… I think its good to pair this with a wine.

Chocolate Orange Fondue
PHP 550

This fondue comes in a platter full of prunes, sliced apples, strawberries and some fruits, there’s marshmallows, cookies and slices of waffles.

I felt like a child again when I dip these fruits into the chocolate orange fondue. Its sweet and very satisfying.

For Valentine’s Day celebrators, I’m sure your partner or your kid will also enjoy the dip to happiness here in Chelsea Grand Café.
