Chocolate Cake – Dimpy’s
If there’s one thing that makes Dimpy’s Chocolate Cake a clear standout among thousands of chocolate cakes in Manila, it has got to be its moistness.
While most chocolate cakes need elaborate decorations, Dimpy’s delicate cake speaks volumes in itself – even without the decorative caramel icing and all.
Chocolate Dream Cake – Le Sucre Lab
If you’re social-media savvy, we’re willing to bet that you’ve already seen that infamous cake in a tin take on your Facebook or Instagram feeds. Many copycat concessionaires have sprouted online but Le Sucre Lab is said to be “The Original Gooey Chocolate Cake.”

Chocolate Truffle Cake – Sugarhouse
Layers upon layers of chocolate chiffon cake and chocolate buttercream, it’s no wonder Sugarhouse’ Chocolate Truffle Cake comes out so smooth and creamy. Do get yourself in on the National Chocolate Cake Day festivities with an 8” cake, or their baby version of it if you’re feeling ‘healthy’.

Salted Chocolate Cake – Wildflour Cafe + Bakery
Salted desserts seem to be a trend that’s successfully worked its way up people’s cravings. It’s no wonder Wildflour’s Salted Chocolate Cake is a huge hit! This moist chocolate cake may be rich and chocolatey but you’ll be pleasantly surprised to know that there’s still a perfect balance of flavors.
Death by Tablea – Chocolat
They say chocolate cake tastes only as good as the chocolate you use, allowing us to safely assume that Chocolat’s Death by Tablea uses only the finest cacao.
Among this entire selection, it is certainly the most culinarily Filipino: marrying flavors of the bittersweet tablea and condensed milk for a unique depth of flavor. It’s a perfect mix of flavors for the perfect pair.
Supreme Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake – Sonja’s Cupcakes
Sonja’s Cupcakes is one of the biggest players when it comes to fun-sized iced confections, so it only makes sense that they also have bigger counterparts.
Their Supreme Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake is a perfectly moist chocolate cake and—true to its name—contains a lot of salted caramel which lends a good sweet and salty taste.

Nono’s Chocolate Oblivion – Nono
Many cakes do a lot of play on texture, but no one seems to pull it off quite like Nono’s Chocolate Oblivion. The cake itself is light and airy, but thanks to several layers of whipped cream and flavorful praline bits, you can’t help but get a nice contrast in every bite.
