Cream N' Bake
- - - -
We spent about 20 minutes ogling the desserts. We think that the cakes are all perfectly made. They even have kiwi in one of their cakes. I mean, where can you find any cakeshop in Cebu that uses kiwi? I love kiwi but I can't seem to find it in our supermarkets. Kiwi was what made me realized that the owner does not scrimp on ingredients. I think for her, baking cakes is an art. It is about making delicious, original masterpieces and it shows in her creations.
We ordered pork sisig. It was too spicy for my taste but it was just right for G and our other male friend. There was too much mayonnaise though and it kinda turned off my sister who does not like mayonnaise in her sisig. But I guess next time we can ask the waitress to just take it easy on the mayonnaise and hot chili peppers. They said that the sisig was just good for 2 but it can feed 4 people. This just goes to show that they're not even scrimping on the serving.
We also ordered the Squid Sisig. It was the first dish we finished. The serving was smaller than the pork sisig but I understand that squid is expensive so I don't mind the small serving. It tasted good, that is what matters more.
The Tangigue Steak was superb. The fish was cooked just right and the sauce was not too creamy and not too bland (in short, just right for our taste). I like the presentation. I like how they put onions, tomatoes, and a stalk of parsley on the side. They gave us a big cut of tangigue too.
And lastly, let's talk about the dessert. We were so full after eating the 3 dishes I mentioned above but of course we cannot leave without tasting even just one mini-cake. And so we did. I was the one who chose what cake we would have. I had a hard time choosing between the Three Stooges (3 different flavors of mousse: the basic milk chocolate, white chocolate, and dark chocolate) and the Tiramisu (the Japanese sounding cake that's actually Italian). I opted for the Tiramisu since I thought that it would help keep us awake with its coffee, wine, and rum combination. And who could resist the thin-chocolate-sheet-with-hearts-shaped-like-a-cup surrounding the cake? It tasted heavenly.
They do not have their own signature drink yet but I am hoping that they'll have it soon. Their softdrink is still in can and the iced tea is still in a bottle. Once they have their own drinks, everything would be perfect.
The restaurant is perfect for dates. I hate restaurants which use flourescent lighting so I like how in this restaurant they use incandescent bulbs. The temperature inside the room is a little bit cold but it's perfect for couples who'd like to cuddle or hold hands since it would give them an excuse =). They have soft, huge couches and waterfall with blue lights that makes the restaurant picture perfect. You can also opt to eat outside. They have a trellis and a small pond - still perfect for a date.
