Sophie Eats: Taiyaki Ice Cream

With all the hype for taiyaki ice cream, I was happy to hear that there’s a stall in the Mall of Asia (MoA). I just finished lunch, so I was in the mood for dessert when, lo and behold, I saw this:

Lucky JPMM Taiyaki Ice Cream

My eyebrows raised a bit at the price of Php 75, but I decided it seemed like it was worth it and ordered one.

Magnum Manila: Salty Regret

I’m about to tell you a story of salty regret.

A Magnum is basically a type of luxury ice cream sold in the supermarkets. It’s made with Belgian chocolate and all the works. Personally, I like Magnum ice creams – especially the dark chocolate one with almonds. Anyways, Magnum opens up these little pop-up shops in different countries wherein you can make your own Magnum bars with your choice of toppings. When it opened here in the Philippines, people went crazy for it.

I know the hype for Magnum Manila is pretty down already, but I never really got the opportunity to try it until recently. I was in the area when I decided “today is the day I’m going to try this thing”. I went up to the store in Mall of Asia and my eyebrows raised a bit when I saw the price (I mean, I could buy almost 3 regular Magnums with that price).

(“Naked Magnum” really? HAHA)

I still decided to go for it since I knew it would be some kind of experience on way or another.

Breakfast at Maginhawa x Breakout Philippines

A few weeks ago, I met up with some of my friends – we started our day with some brunch at Theo’s Café!

As soon as we saw the tarp saying “Now Serving Breakfast”, we knew that we were going to end up eating here.

Pardon, four hungry girls coming in!

MMMMMMM.

Since it IS breakfast time, it would only make sense to eat something “breakfasty”.

I ordered the Waffle + Bacon + Egg – which tasted so good! The waffle is soft and had a creamy taste, the bacon is just the right balance of crunchy and chewy (with the right tad of sweetness), and the egg is done just the way I like it (sunny side up with a runny yolk). On top of it all, it also came with free coffee!

Look at that beauty.

Wildflour Cafe + Bakery

[Note: This is a really late blog post. I had scheduled this to be out by September 10, 2016 – but I forgot to post it!  😦 haha whoops.]

Every Sunday, my family and I go to the Sunday market to have a delicious breakfast and to buy some food for the house. This particular Sunday was special because we were celebrating my dad’s birthday – we had breakfast at the Wildflour Cafe + Bakery in Makati.

It was my first time to go here so I was really impressed by the interior and the food displayed as soon as I walked in. We were immediately seated and handed menus (you can view the menu here).

We ended up ordering the following: the pastry board (Php 420) – choice of any four pastries;

Louie-Luis Ice Cream Sandwich

The other day I went to Alabang Town Center to meet my relatives (as they live near there). We were going to have coffee and snacks somewhere so we could all talk and catch up when we bumped into this:

Louis-Luis Ice Cream Sandwiches!

Of course, all my little cousins were excited and asked for ice cream. We settled down in a nearby restaurant while the others ordered for us. I was watching my cousins while they were ordering and ran back to the stall when I received my ice cream.

It’s pretty affordable for a good ice cream sandwich!

BLK 513!

After several months, I was finally able to try BLK 513! I first heard about this store when they first opened in SM Megamall – unfortunately, I live far from there so I never really got the chance to go. It was pure luck that a branch opened up in SM North Edsa, which is nearer where I live.

My aunt and I were going to watch a film that day (Ang Babaeng Humayo) when I noticed that across the cinema area was BLK 513! Long story short, my aunt and I went to get some frozen yogurt.

20161001_160847
Prices start at Php 170 for the dark skim cone (which comes with two toppings) and Php 185 for the dark skim cup (which comes with one crunch, two fruits, and one sauce).
