Drool!

I have to confess that I'm not really crazy about chocolate cake. I mean, I like chocolate, but I'd rather just have the bars—plain and dark. When it comes to pastries, my choice is usually cheesecake. Except when we're at Bizu Patisserie (Promenade in Greenhills, Glorietta 4 and Greenbelt 2 in Makati City, Alabang Town Center). It's the only place in Metro Manila where I always go for the chocolate confections, and here are my two favorites. Nirvana is caramel chocolate mousse and pistachio cream on a crisp chocolate crust and a layer of chocolate cake covered with chocolate brilliant sauce.

Samba is a combination of milk and dark chocolate mousse between layers of chocolate cake and coated with chocolate brilliant sauce. Both are heavenly! And make me giddily light-headed with a sugar and chocolate high.

So Hilda, tell us, these are really only about an inch wide right? How wonderful to have a French patisserie. I know of none even close to me.
