My sister and I visited our dear friend because we haven’t seen each other for weeks which is unusual 😉 We had a heartfelt lunch at their house and we decided to try Cups and Cones (highly recommended … Continue reading
Having a sweet tooth is such an advantage when indulging all time favorite desserts. My friend Rose Ann treated us to a buffet dessert. Yes! you heared it right, it’s an unlimited dessert! When we’re on our way I’ve been anticipating an alley and alleys of goodies. And when we got in the place I’m not disappointed. But a quick tip though. Before heading to someplace better check blogs and sites for an advance peek of what to expect. That’s why background checking is a must in a workplace for assurance that you did hire deserving applicants right. So, going back 😉 Love Dessert is an eat all you can buffet in 915 Banawe St., Corner Roxas Street, Manresa, Quezon City Philippines. Although we’re a resident of Quezon City for quite some time we still got lost. Thanks to google map and a lot of helping bystanders we got to the place at last.
This is what welcomes you upon entering 😀 I literally knew how “Angels sing when you open the door” feels. So before we discuss the pieces of heaven in front of me I will just warn everyone that this post would surely damage your perfect fit plan (in a way). So Love Dessert is a small place for a buffet, if I’m not mistaken there was only an approximate 20 below tables. But the place is jam packed. Maybe because the place is tiny as I’ve said plus its very affordable for only Php 199.00 you get to enjoy a two-hour dessert pigging.
We settled on our sits first to warm up and rest after our little adventure.
Before the staff gave us the GO signal to start ruining our diet 😉 we were given a small piece of paper to remind us what time we came in and when it is time to bid goodbye and come back to reality.
So judging from our plating, we’re not that excited to stuff all the creamy goodness in our plate. Taste wise, the only thing I didn’t like was the red velvet which was a bummer because it’s my favorite. And if I don’t name the desserts correctly it’s because there were no label at the first place. So it was one of the cons of the place.
Moving to our second plate. As you could probably tell I fell instantly in love with the shot glass desserts (still don’t know the name except the chocolate mousse).
We we’re really thankful that they included a nachos to the menu if in any manner we can’t already contain the sugar overload 🙂
My final sweet is this luscious Avocado ice cream.
This is the over all view of the menu for that day.
I love that the place is very cozy and with a hint of vintage. My friend told me that orange wall can heighten the appetite ( maybe that explains our unusual hunger? ;- ) ) .
And because I love dressing up aside from my sweets here’s a snap of my outfit.
I wore a loose top for the sole reason of hiding my big bulge after the feast. Matching my comfy look with a comfortable animal print leggings from H&M , my gold elephant bangle and snake ring from CELINE and finished it with a brown with yellow gold strap flats from PARISIAN.
I was dolled up by my talented and good looking friend Rose Ann. She just basically rolled my hair inside this braided headpiece from GOODY .
We ended our heart full meal and chat with a hot tea.
When I created this page, my goal is to write and share to people budget-friendly activities, clothes and restaurants. This next store is into the pricey category but because I love spending half as much as possible, I always check sites offering promos. You can check either in Ensogo or Cash Cash Pinoy for affordable finds. I got lucky that when I decided to treat my sister and friends, Sophie’s Mom had a promo. For only Php 250.00, you get to enjoy a coffee and cake for two of your choice. Great deal right? I saved almost half of the original price. But! Reminder though, this restaurant does not offer promos all the time so you have to check the sites I’ve mentioned above from time to time.
Sophie’s Mom is like a pastel dollhouse in realistic size. The whole place is painted white. They have a cute chandelier, pastel colored chairs, and vintage looking wall decors.
The place is indeed “A happy place”.
The place is excellent and so as the food. They have big servings of cake and their red velvet is really delicious. I love that they splurge on the cream cheese, I love “cream cheese”! It gave the cake its right moist.
And this is my whole look for the day. I opted for a comfortable white maxi skirt so I can move around and top it with a leopard print off shoulder for edge.

“Asian and Western Cuisine”
My siblings decided to dine-out for my younger sisters’ birthday. We took a cab and hop off to BGC or Bonifacio Global City. If you haven’t been in the area, its an hour drive from Quezon City. The place is a picture of modern art with a hint of nature which I prefer. Once you step on Taguig, it’s like you’re in another place. I couldn’t actually say that it’s like your in another country because I’ve never been to any but it’s more clean and organize compare to other cities here in the Philippines. So, after our sightseeing we had to walk a few blocks and had to wait for my older sister so we could eat.
We ordered Natural Mango Slush, which is superb, and Carrot Shake (I’m not a fan of that flavor) so its an average for me.
The place actually means ‘Chicken’ and it’s a Filipino Favorite ( the chicken, i mean) so we had to order it. I love the salad on the Soy Garlic Chicken (Php390/large; Php750/family) but I had to say that I’m not that happy with the flavor.
We also tried the Fresh Potato Chips (Php 155.00) and their best namesake – the Koko buri Fried Chicken (Php 390/large serving and Php750/family) and it was delicious, I must say, especially if your having Taipei Beef Fried Rice (Php 295.00) along side. Talking about a match made in heaven.
And of course the little cake for our little sister (hahaha..) The staff even sang her a birthday song which is very sweet.
My overall rate for this restaurant is 9 out of 10. The ambiance is elegant, the food’s great, the price is reasonable and I love how accommodating their staff are.
So here’s the complete gang. We seldom eat outside so we make sure that we try different restaurant for something new to look up to.
And with the birthday girl on the left.
A review on their Prune Hazelnut Cupcake
First of all I am not an adventure foodie. I’m afraid to try new things especially FOOD. But for some reason, I am rewarded with a sister whose obviously very fond of the word NEW. One night she came home with a huge red box on her hands. She told me it was a gift for herself because her birthday’s on the next day. She asked me to give it a try. And as a loyal and loving (well occasionally) sister that I am, I did my best not to disappoint the birthday girl. The name itself is a big question mark for me. What the **** is a Prune?! So as for those bright kids like me, Prune is a dried Plum. So basically the cupcake has a huge pulp of dried fruit inside. If your a fan of raisins it is not that different. What’s weird for me though is, it tasted a lot like caramel. So….big news! I loved it.
It’s really good along with your morning black coffee.
It’s a bit pricey for me though. But one piece is enough and satisfying, worth every penny (especially if its not my penny.)
