paano po pumunta ng chocolate lovers from quiapo? may mga jeep don papuntang cubao, dadaan po ba sa chocolate lovers yun? :)

If you will be coming from quiapo, mas madali for you to go to their welcome rotonda branch instead.
*Take the jeep going to philcoa or SM North/Trinoma in quiapo.
*Baba ka sa first street RIGHT AFTER welcome rotonda (Kitanlad St.) It will be on your right.

The store looks like a bit of a castle. Small brown castle to be exact. Pagbaba mo, yun na yun. Since nasa kanto ng kitanlad at quezon ave. ang choco lovers.

Kung sa cubao pa, you will need to ride the trike pa. If you want to go cubao branch talaga:
*ride the CUBAO JEEP in Quiapo.
*alight in cubao before tumawid yung jeep to the other side of EDSA.
*Walk towards MRT Station.
*Ride the tricycle and tell manong driver to take you to Chocolate Lovers.

Hope that helps! :)

Sis enna, if you're using it for choco moldings, mas OK ang veg shortening since it holds the form of the chocolates quite well. It wont get soft under room temp. So if the recipre calls for veg shortening, use veg shortening as what sis rhiiana said. ;) Though I use butter for ganache and choco fillings naman.
Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.
