Fish Kiev at Chocolate Kiss Cafe

The first time I ate at Chocolate Kiss Cafe was more than ten years ago in UP. Since then, I've gone there a lot with friends, usually those who also went to UP. It's a nice place to catch up with old friends, because it's cozy, and what you eat is truly comfort food. I've often sat there for hours, just chatting, gossiping, and laughing over lunch, coffee, or dessert, or maybe all three at the same time.

A couple of years after my first visit to Chocolate Kiss, I discovered that the family of one of my climbing friends, Ina, runs the restaurant. No wonder the place has such good vibes- Ina, her brother Ruben, as well as their mom are all such pleasant people.

Over the years, my usual orders would be one of the following: their daing na bangus, eggplant parmigiana, or pesto penne (with sans rival for dessert). Recently, though, when I went to their branch along Roces Avenue, I discovered something relatively new on their menu- Fish Kiev.

Fish Kiev

When I stopped eating chicken many years ago, one of the dishes I started to miss was Chicken ala Kiev, which was a staple of my childhood. I missed seeing that rush of butter as I cut into the chicken fillet. So I was very happy to see that Chocolate Kiss had a fish version of it. Eating it gave me as much pleasure as I remember getting way back when I still ate chicken.

This dish just gives me another reason to keep going back to Chocolate Kiss Cafe.
