Well, it doesn’t taste like what it says it is.

The-Coffee-Bean-Guiltless-Chocolate-CakeThe-Coffee-Bean-Hazelnut-CoffeeHazelnut-Coffee-Guiltless-Chocolate-Cake-2I’m not exactly a health-junkie kind of person and I love eating desserts. I don’t count my calories and just order what I think tastes good and looks like it tastes good.

So when I saw that The Coffee Bean has this “Guiltless” Chocolate Cake that has a velvety look to it topped with some thin chocolate shavings, it just looked so good I had to try it. I am so surprised they call it “guiltless” because seriously every bite of  this awesome thing tastes like SIN! It is not too sweet but not bland and rather has the rich, deep taste of pure chocolate. The mousse so smooth it feels like eating something in between cream and air.

At one point, I felt guilty for having ordered another slice 🙂

 

Breakfast Food at 4pm? Why not :)

I love breakfast food so much I can eat ’em anytime of day. Paired with any good cup of coffee, and I’m happy to indulge!

Sit Like a King, Eat Like a Viking

There are many reasons why Vikings is one of the top-of-mind buffets in Manila, PH. From an overwhelming variety of desserts that greet you upon entry, to that sushi bar that pulls at your tummy strings every time, there are many things you shouldn’t miss out when eating like a warrior.

Caviar & Cheese for Starters 

They have so many kinds of cheese I just have to get all of them, especially the soft and chewy mozzarella bites.

 The Sushi and Maki Bar

Nope, that’s an understatement. It could as well be a standalone sushi-maki mini restaurant.25521013_10159648791925697_1488299707_o

See food everywhere

Fresh catch of the day in almost each one of their booths.

For those who can’t live without bread and a nice serving of butter, and much, much more! 25519771_10159648792080697_561239564_n

Leave room for dessert!

Obviously my favourite part of the whole buffet dining experience. Desserts-Vikings-2Desserts-Vikings-3Creme-Brulee-VikingsDesserts-Vikings

Best Tofu Stake I’ve Had

There are two reasons why I keep coming back to Teriyaki Boy – their tofu steak and their quality Japanese food at affordable prices. I’ve eaten at several Japanese restaurants who charge at a rather higher price range, but this one is my favourite of all because their food is better and also comes at a better price.

And that tofu steak I am crazy about? It’s got some tofu with a bit of beef all wrapped up in a crispy… Well, I don’t really have the words to describe how good it tastes 🙂 So it is best to try it out yourself.

Chicken & Cheese!

I’m just so addicted to Backyard Kitchen + Brew‘s Four Cheese Flatbread that ever since I’ve tried it the first time, it’s sure to land on my order list every time I come here! It’s got the perfect blend of four different kinds of cheese that are sure to leave you wanting for more of it. Tonight, I tried another one of their dishes and had me a good serving of their Salted Egg Chicken Skin. Yes, I know it all sounds very sinful for your diet, but these are just so irresistible that for a second there I want to forget about that extra inch on my waistline. Perfect for appetizers to go with your dinner, or eat them while you drink your favourite beer!
