I was supposed to eat at Solomon's Guest House for lunch a few days ago, but was greeted with a sign that read, "see you next semester".
Hungry and disappointed, I thought of Becky's Kitchen, which was just a couple of blocks away.
There, I ordered all of my favorites, the Swiss Chocolate Cake P45/slice, Tofifay P9/pc, and the Cherry Walnut Fudge P9/pc.
The Swiss Chocolate Cake was also one of the 21 Sinful desserts in the Manila Standard Anniversary Supplement.
It is 2 layers of chocolate cake with toffee crunch and toffee cream in the middle, enveloped by white icing.
It was very good, also not too sweet.
A total package on its own. I felt like I was having coffee with my cake, since it did taste like coffee and it's a cake.
The Tofifay is made of toffee and chocolate chips.
Good combination of the strong coffee flavor of the toffee and the sweetness of the chocolate chips.
A good pick me-up for the mid-day slump.
The Cherry Walnut Fudge is a brownie made of cherries, walnut & chocolate.
Soft, chewy and of course, fudgy (as its name connotes).
I left the store feeling rejuvenated, ready to face the scorching heat outside.
