hubby, my niece and i have always been fond of ice cream.  ever since this ice cream parlor opened in Mall of Asia, we have been eyeing to try it out.  so one afternoon, we decided to fulfill our sweet cravings at swensen’s.


they have a menu with extensive offerings of sundaes, parfaits, shakes and other ice cream creations that would suit whatever you want in an ice cream.

the place was also warm and cozy, servers are very attentive, and we especially liked the glasses in which the water was served.  once you sit down on your table, they immediately serve you water.  this is nice since you need to wash away all the sweetness you will have from the ice cream.

so here is what we ordered:

sweet n’ gold – php 185.00

strawberry stripes – php 255.00

nutty crispy tower – php 245.00

ebony and ivory – php 265.00

chocolate ring a ding – php 245.00

we liked how each of our orders were a balance of sweetness, crunch and other flavors.  i loved the macadamia ice cream and caramel syrup on my ebony and ivory order.  the sweet and gold on the other hand has nata de coco and corn kernels.

one could also create your own concoctions by choosing your ice cream flavor, syrup and toppings that you want.

the price is a little high for just an order of ice cream, but it would be a good indulgence once in a while.  will definitely go back to try their other offerings.

mom and tina’s

the other day, one of my officemates texted me and said that they were at mom and tina’s in makati and if i wanted something for take out.

as i was craving for pasta, i replied back with the order of chicken spinach lasagna. plus i also ordered hershey’s kisses brownies.

unfortunately the brownies were unavailable so i opted for the dark choco chunk brownies instead.

this is my merienda:

chicken spinach lasagna with bread rolls; the brownies are in the plastic

the pasta dish was good. it was very flavorful and the taste of the spinach was very subtle.  a good way to sneak veggies to your kids (even non-kids) food.  i would have liked the rolls to be more garlicky. for Php 175.00, it is a satisfying meal.

i loved the brownies. they were moist, chewy and full of chocolatey goodness. 😉 they are priced at Php 32.00 a piece.

i would have to ask junjun for us to eat here next time so that i could try other dishes and desserts.
