A Different Combination: Red Ribbon Choco Fudge Cake and Crispy Chicken. :)

Red Ribbon came up with another new cake going to the end of the third quarter – the Choco Fudge Cake!

I got to taste it for the first time a week or two ago at a colleague’s birthday celebration. Being familiar with Red Ribbon cakes, I knew it was a new cake. ๐Ÿ™‚ I tried it with anticipation and I was not disappointed. It was so chocolaty from top to bottom and from side to side being smothered and literally covered with chocolate icing!

I say it’s a chocolate cake for the real chocolate lover. It’s a leveled-up classic chocolate cake with layers of moist chocolate pound cake and chocolate fudge filling inside. Be cautious though that the more conservative cake consumer might find it too chocolaty or too sweet.

Priced a little lower than its predecessor – the Chocolate Heaven, the Choco Fudge Cake is a perfect gift for your chocolate-loving friend or those with a sweet tooth; but might not be so for those on the ‘sugar guard‘. The regular size costs P460 and junior size is only P275.

Moreover, you could have the Choco Fudge Cake served warm or cold. Try it warm for a change! ๐Ÿ™‚ It comes perfect with a hot cup of brewed coffee as well.

Interestingly that same night, I came across one of Red Ribbon’s newest meal – the Crispy Chicken. To say it plain and straight – I loved it! I’m not really a fan of chicken skin, but if it is this good and crispy, I’ll take it. ๐Ÿ™‚

It was good mix of chicken meat and crispy skin with new twist to barbecue sauce – the mango barbecue sauce. A full order is P150 and P90 ala carte.

I finished the chicken before I remembered I haven’t taken a photo of it. ๐Ÿ™‚ So make do with my small photo of the menu board at Red Ribbon’s new and spacious branch at Fort Bonifacio in between Jollibee and Chowking along Rizal Street.

Partnering the Choco Fudge Cake and the Crispy Chicken might be a little odd, but hey, it was all good. ๐Ÿ™‚
