Indulge in a Decadent Journey from Cacao to Chocolate, Infused with Local Flavors.
Furama Singapore, in collaboration with The Chocolate Chamber, proudly presents an extraordinary 1565 Chocolate High-Tea on 13 December. Implore in a journey of the senses with the renowned Chocolate Queen, Ms. Raquel Toquero-Choa, Founder of The Chocolate Chamber as she shares passionately of the journey from cacao to chocolate.
Her delightful chocolate creations are inspired by her first-hand experiences and the cherished lessons passed down by her grandmother. This legacy includes the time-honored tradition of crafting ‘tablea’—pure cacao tablets—and enjoying ‘sikwate,’ a 100% pure cacao drink.
The partnership brings an adapted menu inspired by The Chocolate Chamber’s 1565 Chocolate High-Tea from Cebu Philippines, which highlights the infusion of the rich flavors of cacao and other treasures from the historic Acapulco-Manila Galleon trade. Served exclusively from 1521 to 1721 hours (3:21 pm to 5:21 pm), this unique time frame pays homage to a significant year in Philippine-Spanish history, adding a touch of historical richness to the delightful chocolate experience.
