This Cake is for us.


It's My Tatay's 61st birthday.. Traditionally, when there's a birthday, there has to be..A Birthday Cake!!
So I wanted to buy something new from what used to buy. And since my father isn't that young anymore, dark chocolate I thought would be best .

Looking around Mall of Asia, I found this bakeshop/ cafe - Chocolat Deep Dark Chocolate

There's a lot to choose from here..And they sell cakes per slice, loaf, 6-inch or whole. I almost drool as I choose. Then my eyes caught the Chocolate Caramel cake.. looks lovely and yummy with the caramel on top.
I asked the cashier if they do dedications on cake and yep! Yes they do!! And yes, I immediately placed my order for a 6-inch Chocolate Caramel cake and wrote my birthday greeting.

As I waited on the couch, I can't help but to imagine how my cake would look like. The design on top of the cake looks creative but I wonder how they will put the dedication on. Will it look bulky with design? Will it be messy? Can the greetings still be seen?

Few minutes of waiting, my cake was presented to me.

Looky here:


WHOALA!

The dedication was not done ordinarily.. you know, the simple icing that we used to see.. Am very impressed with this one.. (the pic seemed damaged but that was because I wasn't careful during the travel)
Wrapped in box with a complimentary candle, I happily grabbed the cake and traveled home to greet my father a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Now, it's time to judge the taste. My eyes were satisfied, what about my tastebuds?

Cutting a piece, oooh that cake was moist enough I can't wait to try..
And it was.. SUBLIME!
Not too sweet, soft enough, very tasty, and just so perfect for us!



This one is a must try! ;)
Will definitely be back to try the other flavors.
Soon again, Chocolat Deep Dark Chocolate

Juan's Bistro experience.

'Twas 7:00 o'clock in the evening.. Tired from long MOA walk, sight seeing and window shoppin.. But just the perfect time for our Dindin.. So we stopped at Juan's Bistro(MOA Complex) to sate our crying tummies and try the resto's dishes.

Whenever sisig is  available at any resto that we visit, we definitely order this sizzling menu! Favorite!

You know, you've imagined the poppin sound and  that 'sizzling thing' upon serving.? For me it gives excitement to any sisig..
But, my dismay , our sizzling sisig was no longer sizzling when served on our table. (sad face)

Anyway, moving on our another dish, we also ordered Inihaw na liempo which I found just fine.

It's partly tender... 

No good points yet, huh?

There is actually. I tell you.
What I loved was the hilaw na mangga with bagoong. I always love mango and JB did not disappoint me with this one ,together with the alamang. That crisp that you imagine from green mango. Yep, they got it!

Also, what's commendable with this resto is their service. The staffs were very attentive in refilling our glasses of bottomless iced tea. And, they live with the culture of every "Juan" which is known for hospitality 
and will greet you in Filipino words like "salamat po". They were accommodating though I find them too plenty, - 10 service crew as I counted.


It was an average restaurant experience for me.

I have not tried Juan's Bistro's other menu. And It would not be fair to judge with the few that I had. 
Uhm, I Might go back to try the others. :)
