The elegant interiors in a wash of vibrant earthy tones drew us in as if waiting to embrace us under the warm glow of the gorgeous cream-colored lamps. Just across from where we were seated, we saw how friendly and dedicated the staff members were.They didn't even know that in my book, they already gave a new meaning to the word customer service.
Affogato (Php 99).
A popular Italian-espresso based treat featuring a scoop of your favorite gelato topped with some slivered nuts and paired with a shot of hot espresso. The smell of finely brewed coffee fills the air when the hot mixture is poured over the cold, Italian confection.
Mars Cel knows good coffee. That's why when she said that the affogato here is perfecto, there was no doubt in my mind that she was telling the absolute truth.
Waffle Gelato (Php 95).
Warm and toasty, the waffle is topped with green tea gelato drizzled in caramel, with a dusting of confectioner's sugar and served with whipped cream, a slice of kiwi and strawberry on the side. The waffle is made just the way I like it--crunchy on the outside but delicate on the inside. The waffle and gelato combo provides an interesting fusion of hot and cold goodness that is surprisingly comforting. The whipped cream and the tangy taste from the fruits make this dessert experience truly memorable.
Caffelato Frappe Green Tea Grande (Php 135).
A lovely blend of green tea gelato topped with whipped cream and drizzled with caramel. If you like your frappe semi-sweet and not too rich, then Caffelato is for you. But if you want your frappe richer, creamier and much sweeter, then this selection might not ease your frappe craving at all. When I tasted it, I thought that something's amiss. After eating the Honeybread Gelato, I figured it out. I truly think that this selection will taste much better with the addition of a tinge of jelly to spruce up the gelato. But that's just my opinion.
Honeybread Gelato (Php 120).
A thick-slice of butter-soaked bread toasted in honey and topped with two gelato flavors (blueberry and tiramisu) drizzled with caramel and served with a dusting of confectioner's sugar and cocoa. The bread is warm and toasty providing the perfect structure for the dessert. The jelly cuts through the gelato creating a burst of flavors in my mouth. This simple confection is just like an aria in an opera--expressive and heartfelt.
No wonder I heard the Queen of the Night aria from Mozart's Die Zauberflote (The Magic Flute) in my head, the moment I tasted it. The trills and rapid runs in the aria reflect my inner yearning for this dessert experience to just go on forever.
