so after various computer-related disasters, i got finished with my first day in manila only slightly scathed and immediately suggested to my colleagues that we try the chocolate cake at teak. well, she seemed to like it. . .
the version i got of this tonite wasn't so high, only one layer. and my friends, it was basic ultra-rich ultra-dark ganache on a plate.
the filipinos love sweets, so this cake was much more sugary than it would have been in nyc. did i say no? no.
not the best chocolate cake of my life, but very credible. in fact, delicious, moist, and did i mention: sweet?
it works for me.
