Tabléa Chocolate Café has long been considering to provide its clients a delivery service and is now excited to be able to bring its treats to the homes and offices of its patrons with its partnership with foodpanda.
The business has its roots in Filipino tradition and in time-honored family recipes, and is the brainchild of Aya Garcia-Schlachter. Schlachter was influenced by the culinary artistry of her mother and entrepreneurial vision of her father.
For years, her mother’s “sikwate” (Cebuano for hot chocolate) has been served to guests in the family home. It was her father’s idea that this highly sought-after “sikwate” could be the basis of a viable business. So she took her mother’s recipe and her father’s idea and combined both into a chocolate café with a modern touch.
