a taste of slice

Published August 4, 2014 by ladyemelye

i’ve first heard about slice because of their cupcakes.  so when i moved to a job at bonifacio global city last year, i grabbed a box of some of these cupcakes.

of course i got the famous choco yema (php 60) cupcake.  beside it is the oh my ube (php 80).  the one with the green frosting is candyland.  i forgot what flavor is the one on the lower left, but the cupcake is colored pink. 🙂

the choco yema was definitely a winner.  the combination of chocolate plus the creaminess of the yema was really good.  i also like the oh my ube.  it was an ube flavored cupcake with cream cheese frosting and some coconut shreds providing some texture.  i got candyland for the little boy.

last month, hubby and i were looking for someplace at high street central wherein we could have brunch before seeing a movie.  we decided to eat at slice to check out their all day breakfast.

slice scrambled + kalemonade

hubby got the slice scrambled (php 150).  this consists of baked scrambled 2 whole eggs with cheese.  there are 3 different variants and he chose smoked bangus + red eggs + scallion + tomato.  this was served together with a bowl of mixed brown rice.  according to him the scrambled egg was really flavorful and the meal was filling.

for his drink, he got the kalemonade (php 100) which is kamote-infused lemonade.  it does taste like your usual lemonade, however you can also taste the hint of the kamote leaves.

panini + raving raspberry

i ordered the pizza panini (php 150).  it was filled with cheese, pepperoni, ham and mushrooms.  the filling was very tasty and full of ingredients.  the panini was also toasted very nicely.

for the drink, i got the raving raspberry (php 100) which is your typical raspberry juice.

we were really satisfied with the food that we ate here, that we were still not feeling hungry even after the 2-hour movie.


if you are looking for a place that serves healthy food, but doesn’t compromise the flavor, then this restaurant should be on your list.  i will definitely be back to try out the other items in their menu, especially those for dessert. 😀

a unique dining experience: the dining room

Published November 24, 2013 by ladyemelye

on our way home from one of our tagaytay trips, we decided to have lunch at gourmet’s the dining room. going down the driveway, you will see a  santorini-inspired structure.  opening the big doors, and taking in the view of the white, clean and chic interiors, you know that you are in for a treat.

the restaurant boasts of italian/mediterranean cuisine with most of its ingredients sourced from gourmet’s own farm.

there was a salad station available inside but we did not avail of that.  instead we ordered three different items from the menu.

baked salmon - php 330.00

baked salmon – php 330.00

baked salmon – oven baked salmon fillet with mashed potato and sauteed spinach.  this was junjun’s order.  the salmon was baked perfectly and was flavorful.  the mashed potato also complimented the fish.

tuna sandwich - php 250.00

tuna sandwich – php 250.00

tuna sandwich – bougette tuna filling, tomato, lettuce and cucumber.  this was an order for matteo.  the sandwich was filling and it could be easily a meal in itself.  what i loved are the veggie chips (made of malunggay i think) which accompanied the sandwich.  it is great alternative instead of the usual potato chips.

the dining room special - php 580.00

the dining room special – php 580.00

the dining room special – coffee and spice rubbed ribeye or tenderloin fillet with mashed potato.  this was my order.  there is also a side salad that accompanied this.  i had my steak done medium well.  i liked how the steak was flavored and it was tender that i did not have a hard time cutting the meat.

we also ordered the dalandan juice and ripe mango shake for Php 85.00 each.

for its price, i would say the taste and serving of the food was worth the peso paid.  the ambience of the restaurant is also a plus.  the waiter and other staff were also attentive and was very helpful.

i would like to go back to this resto again to try more of their offerings. 😀
