food test (july & august): starbucks, sbc, chowking

Published September 14, 2014 by ladyemelye

the past months have been quite busy, and there was not much new things that i got to try out so i am combining my food test for july and august.

starbucks: banana chocolate puff, bacon parmesan stromboli, banana raspberry frappuccino, tiramisu frappuccino

banana chocolate puff - php 75.00

banana chocolate puff – php 75.00

i do not know if because i bought this in the morning, then ate it when i got home, that it was just ok for me.  this is a flaky and buttery pastry with chocolate and bananas inside.  the pastry is actually good.  i just feel that there wasn’t enough chocolate and that the taste of the bananas were a little overwhelming.

bacon parmesan stromboli - php 120

bacon parmesan stromboli – php 120

my new favorite at starbucks. i love anything with bacon!  this is a flaky, buttery, crunchy crust filled with bacon, tomato, parmesan and mozzarella.  i could easily finish one of this in a sitting.  you could taste all of the flavors in each bite.  the perfect savory pair to your coffee. 🙂  i hope this stays in the menu.

banana raspberry frappuccino - (grande) php 170 (venti) php 180

banana raspberry frappuccino – (grande) php 170 (venti) php 180

The Banana Raspberry Frappuccino® blended beverage combines the berry goodness of our Raspberry Blackcurrant juice with milk and a peeled banana

this is my favorite among the “banana” line of frappuccino that was launched.  it has the right amount of sweetness and tart. one good option if you are looking for a non-coffee based drink.

tiramisu frappuccino - (tall) php180 (grande) php190 (venti) php200

tiramisu frappuccino – (tall) php180 (grande) php190 (venti) php200

Tiramisu Frappuccino® blended beverage features our delicious blended coffee flavored with Tiramisu sauce then topped with bits of biscuits, cheesecake- inspired whipped cream, Tiramisu sauce drizzle and a dusting of cocoa powder.

the flavors of this drink is really nice.  i like the combination of the tiramisu sauce and the cheesecake whipped cream.  the sweetness was also just right.  although this could mean a lot of calories with all that sauce, whipped cream and cocoa powder. 😉

seattle’s best coffee: strawberry fields

again, i availed of this drink using my sbc planner coupon.  this is an ice-blended drink made of strawberry puree and crushed chocolate cookies, topped with whipped cream and that cute strawberry candy.  this is like the strawberry oreo ice cream that is available locally.  a little sweet for me, but if you are a fan of strawberry or cookies or both, then this is for you.

chowking: happy pao

happy pao (panda and piggy) - php 109

happy pao (panda and piggy) – php 109

these paos are just too darn cute that i bought a box of three while buying food from chowking.  the panda has chocolate inside, while the piggy is your asado siopao in a cuter form. 🙂  the chocolate pao was actually good.  the filling was not to sweet, and they did not scrimp on the amount so that you get chocolate from every bite.

happy eating! 🙂

custaroons

Published June 14, 2010 by ladyemelye
i have heard and read about these dessert treats, so i decided to order and taste some myself.
custaroons – a mixture of custard and macaroons.
i browsed through the website, found the contact number and ordered these cute desserts. i decided to have assorted bite-sized custaroons (original and cheese), and a tub of poppers (custaroon balls coated in chocolate).
i loved the treats, especially the cheese variant. i like them fresh out of the ref, but gigi told me that one could also toast the custaroons.
the chocolate poppers were also good, it was not too sweet which i like.
everyone to whom i shared these treats also found them very good.
The box of assorted bite-sized custaroons (30 pcs) costs Php 300.00; while the tub of poppers (22 pcs) costs Php 200.00
packaging was also very cute, which would make these treats a nice gift.

frostings cupcakes

Published October 25, 2009 by ladyemelye

These past days, i have been craving for a carrot cake. Yesterday, when Junjun & i went to SM MoA to buy my new shoes, we decided to look around for a carrot cake.

What we stumbled upon is a cupcake shop named frostings.

The stall is located near the skating rink. They offered a wide variety of cupcakes which are categorized as regular, fruit, premium and extra premium.

We decided to get a carrot cupcake and a lava cupcake.

I liked their carrot cake. It was not too sweet, and you can really taste and see the shreded carrots in the cupcake. There were also huge chunks of walnuts inside the cupcake which gave it texture. The frosting was also a nice complement to the cake.

The lava cupcake was a chocolate cupcake with fudge in the middle. The chocolate cupcake was good since it was not too sweet. The fudge tasted like some liquor was added to it. I liked the frosting and the candy sprinkles in it.

The next time we stop by Mall of Asia, i will try out the other variants of their cupcakes.
