The ChocolateX Chocolate Mousse was created by Manila-based French chef, Xavier Btesh. It is the only original French chocolate mousse in Manila, and made with only the finest ingredients. Btesh uses French dark chocolate and organic eggs, and adds zero sugar. The result is a light, luscious mousse that is teeming with delicious chocolate flavor. In fact, our mousses come in three varieties.
All varieties of ChocolateX Chocolate Mousse are best eaten as is, without any frills or additions. Scoop it straight from its tin as dessert, or as an indulgent snack. Pair with a cup of coffee, or a steaming mug of tea.
ChocolateX is the only original French chocolate mousse in Manila, and it was created by Manila-based French chef, Xavier Btesh. Born in Paris to a multi-cultural family (his mother is French-Italian, and his father is Syrian-Iraqi Jewish), and having traveled the world from an early age, Btesh had no shortage of exposure to different cultures and flavors. But it was hanging out in kitchens that really gave him the cooking bug. His mother’s family was in the restaurant business, and even from an early age, he knew he wanted to work with food.
His culinary career would find him cooking for celebrities, top businessmen, and even royalty. But in the 1990s, he fell in love with the Philippines, and it was a no-brainer “yes” when he was offered to work here in 2012. In Manila, he has worked as chef consultant for many restaurants, has done stints as guest chef, and even wrote a cookbook in 2017 entitled, “French Kusina.” ChocolateX is his new venture, one that seeks to introduce authentic French desserts to the Filipino palate.
