Brief History

According to Mr. Raymond Chavez, Chavez Estate was an “accidental” business.

Owner of Chavez Estate review of Happy and Busy Travels to Tagaytay Silang Cavite

Mr. Chavez came from the family that owns Sustamina Agri-Industrial Corporation, which is a company that serves primarily the continuously growing livestock industry in Cavite (https://sustamina.com.ph/about-us/).

The business started as a coffee shop at first and they have decided to add several dishes.

While the concept of creating the restaurant was being contemplated, Mr. Chavez thought of putting a twist in the dishes by adding Chocolate from his another business, The Chocoland Farm.

Fresh from the farm Chavez Estate review of Happy and Busy Travels to Tagaytay Silang Cavite
Everything that the restaurant serves are fresh. Fresh ingredients from the farm were used to create the delicious dishes.

We went to the restaurant around 1:00 in the afternoon and we stopped by the restaurant.

It was made out of fresh veggies such as Romaine Lettuce, Onions, Green, Red, and Yellow Bell Pepper, black olives, Tomatoes, Cucumber, and Quezo de Bola Crisp. The dressing was a semi sweet mixture of Chocolate and vinaigrette.

The combination of the veggies and the dressing was good. It complimented each others taste.

 

Pumpkin Puree Soup

The soup was a thick

The soup was thick and very rich in Pumpkin Taste. I am not into eating pumpkin, but this soup made me eat a lot of Pumpkin! It was delicious! We even had two of these 😆

It was served with Basil Pesto and toasted bread.

 

Fresh Tomato Soup

The soup came with a toasted bread topped on the Quezo de Bola Crisp.

Upon tasting the crisp, I already love the soup.

The soup was also rich and very tasty.

Tip! Dip the Quezo de Bola Crisp in the soup.

 

Crispy Pork Belly ala Lechon Kawali

This dish was one of the dishes I am looking forward to!

The dish was the classic Lechon Kawali, partnered with a salad and Mango relish, but with the most important aspect of the dish…. Chocolate liver Sauce!

 

We were really intrigued about the Chocolate added in some of the dishes of the restaurant.

I immediately added the sauce and tasted it…. Oh my! It was really delicious! I did not expect that the chocolate can make the dish better! I’ll be back soon and I will order this again!

 

Fillio Crusted Salmon

I wash excited to try this one as soon as the dish was served.

The dish was made out of a Salmon wrapped in a thin sheet of puff pastry and topped with melted cheese.

As we expected, the dish was yummy! This was the dish that was immediately consumed!

 

Chocolate Infused Pork Belly Dinuguan

Here is another dish that we looked forward to…

Chavez Estate added a twist in our favorite Dinuguan! They added Chocolate and it made the dish more delicious!

I am not a fan of Dinuguan, but the restaurant kept on making me eat food that I do not usually eat. Seriously, this version was the best among the Dinuguan that I have tasted.

 

Vegan Bolognese

The restaurant has also dishes which were Vegan friendly, just like this dish.

While I was eating the pasta, I forgot that there is no meat in it! It was so good!

 

USDA Beef Belly Squash Kare-Kare

The Kare-Kare that was served looked like what I saw in the social media accounts of the restaurant. The expectation and the reality was on point!

The Kare-Kare was made out of a sauce of grinded peanuts, tender Beef Belly, and vegetables.

Filipinos eat Kare-Kare with Bagoong, which is a condiment made out of krill (small shrimps) or fermented fish with salt.

Of course, the restaurant added a twist. The restaurant served the Kare-Kare with Chocolate Bagoong!

The Bagoong and chocolate tasted good together with the Kare-Kare! We again did not expect it!

 

Drinks

Busy had Hot Ginger with Lemon to soothe his throat.

Adlai and Quinoa Champorado, and Hot Chocolate

Later in the afternoon, we had a snack. We tried their Adlai and Quinoa Champorado, and of course their special hot chocolate.

I love how they served the Champorado, it came with coconut milk, brown sugar, and the super crunchy dried fish. The dish was also Vegan friendly!

If you are really a chocolate lover, you will love their Champorado and Hot Chocolate because it was really rich in Chocolate! It was like eating a pure Chocolate bar in different forms.

 

YUM! We enjoyed every moment we had a bite of the scrumptious food! Goodbye diet! 😅

The Garden

After we eat, we explored the other areas of Chavez Estate. There was an outside seating for those who loves to experience the cold weather in Silang.

An area was decorated as rustic, this added to the homey vibe of the restaurant.

We even decided to have our afternoon snack in the tree house.

This was the area that we had decided to have our Adlai and Quinoa Champorado and Hot Chocolate.

The Champorado and Hot Chocolate was right for the cold temperature in Silang.

Unique Products for Sale

If you love how the unique taste of the Chocolate with the dishes, you can bring home some of the condiments.

Adlai and Quinoa Champorado Mix

Just like what we ate, the Champorado mix was available for everyone to take home and store for future consumption.

Do you wonder what Adlai and Quinoa are? Adlai is a grain, just like rice but it is gluten free, and on the other hand Quinoa is a plant which has small edible seeds and is usually eaten as an alternative to other grains.

 

Tablea Bagoong

Bagoong with Chocolate! Ever heard of this one? For me this was the first time 🙂

Another unique product… Just imagine tasting a condiment which has a combination of sweet, sour, bitter, and spicy.

Comfort Room

Of course we have to see their comfort rooms 🙂

Remember! A clean comfort room also represents a clean kitchen!

The restaurant has only one comfort room for ladies and gentlemen. Even though there was only one the comfort room was clean and odorless.

A bidet was available.

And there was a lot of tissue paper!

  • Looks like a really neat place! And, as always, what beautiful pictures!
  • Damn...Chavez Estate looks amazeballs! You had me at a restaurant build by accident around their Chocolate Farm or to that extent! (took a little liberty but I was distracted by the CHOCOLATE!) So if you haven't figured it out, I am totally a chocolate freak so when I looked at the menu you posted I was like this all looks good BUT the Chocolate Infused Pork Belly Dinuguan with Chimmichuri Rice would probably be what I would try first...then I saw you did and it looks so yummy! Of course I love seafood so the fish looked good but that pork belly and rice looks perfect. Also, that place overall looks awesome. I think I have said awesome a wee bit to much but Chavez Estate definitely fits the bill. The whole place looks so cool but if the weather was perfect sitting outside especially in the "tree house" seats would be fun and even romantic. Great find...adding this to my food bucket list for sure when I get to Silang Cavite!
    • Happy and Busy
