The LOOP at ABSCBN has evolved on becoming a foodie haven offering quick fix like Potato Corner, give in to your pizza craving with the newly opened Shakey's and healthy options via Gourmet Refreshers. Regular readers of this site would know that a delicious dessert would always complete my meal. Just a few months back, The LOOP opened one of my favorite bakeshops over the years - ARISTOCRAT BAKESHOP.
Aristocrat Bakeshop (a subsidiary of one of the landmarks in Filipino cuisine - Aristocrat Restaurant) offers a wide variety of desserts to choose from, ranging from Chocolate based pastries, cakes like brazo de mercedes and their soft ensaymada.
Frequent readers of this site already know that I am a certified chocoholic so I will be sharing with you some of the chocolate concoctions Aristocrat Bakeshop offers. Starting with a square dessert, walled with four thin milk chocolate squares, the airy chocolate cake was smothered with light mocha frosting and topped with maraschino cherry. I often buy this sweet ending though I constantly forget its name.

Another is simply called Chocolate Mallows. This round dessert has two layers of marshmallows coated in semi-sweet chocolate. The size was tricky to eat, so don't hesitate to use a fork to taste this airy and slightly gooey sweet concoction.
|Torta delos Reyes, a best-seller at Aristocrat Bakeshop|
Aristocrat Bakeshop's best-seller and a signature dessert is their Torta delos Reyes, their single-serve is a square ensemble. The cake seems to be two layers in height that was entirely coated in chocolate & butter frosting that has been cooled and embellished with white chocolate designs on top. What awaits every chocoholic in this seemingly simple chocolate cake is an intricate layer of crisp wafers creating their ultimate Sans Rival. I make sure I took the entire length in one bite to capture its essence, from the chocolate-butter icing to the very core of the sans rival. It was a definite Torte of the kings (delos reyes translates into "of the kings") as the name suggests. And at Php160 for this single cake, it may not be a regular dessert for the regular Juan, but if you have to treat yourself after a rough day at work, by all means, indulge.
