We're sure you know by know that IKEA's first-ever store in the Philippines is opening in Pasay and it's going to be the biggest store worldwide which makes it extra exciting. While we're all excited for it to open its doors on November 25 and see all the affordable furniture and home items in real life (and not just through the website that's now available 24/7), we're also very hyped about their food!

Swedish meatballs aside, it was reported that IKEA Pasay will support local food producers and farmers for their restaurant. We've just confirmed that Auro Chocolate, an award-winning local chocolatier, will debut its first-ever concept cafe at IKEA Pasay.

Auro Chocolate shared the news on their social media amid the viral "stealing" of the Mall of Asia globe. It came with a photo of the MOA globe replaced with Auro's chocolate bomb:
