Location: Palenque, Upper Ground Floor B, Gateway Mall 2

Who can say no to brownies? No one—even your dad will love Tindeli Filipino Deli and Café’s version of Dark Chocolate Brownies, especially when it’s made by none other than celebrity chef Myke “Tatung” Sarthou.

Unlike the usual brownies that give a taste of sweetness, Tindeli’s Dark Chocolate Brownies revel in the deep, bittersweet notes of high-quality dark cocoa. This results in a brownie that’s far more nuanced than its milk chocolate counterparts. Each bite is a journey for the taste buds, starting with a slight bitterness that gives way to hints of roasted nuts, all culminating in a luxuriously smooth and decadent finish.
