First slice of the Belgian Chocolate Flourless Mousse Cake

Another new dessert option from Starbucks.

Smooth. Not too sweet. Slightly bitter. Perfect with coffee.

All in all, not bad.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First taste of the Purple Yam Brazo Parfait.

A new dessert option from Starbucks.



Ube halaya + Brazo de Mercedes + Leche flan = Diabetes.

ANG TAMIS!



Try it and judge for yourself...If you want your sugar levels to spike!

First sip of the Okinawa Brown Sugar Latté

Something new from Starbucks.

It's espresso flavored with Okinawa brown sugar, topped with froth and brown sugar drizzle.

The drink tastes like milk tea, good-enough milk tea. It's just a little too sweet. The flavor of the drizzle is that of arnibal of your good ol' taho.

Tip: Have this Iced, para hindi masyadong matamis.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First bite of the Red Togarashi Tempura

A new tempura treat from Tokyo Tokyo.

It's ebi tempura made with red batter and chili powder (togarashi).



As expected, the tempura is well fried, not too oily and crunchy. The prawn inside is tender and fresh. The chili powder doesn't add anything exceptionial to the flavor save for some heat that more than whets the appetite.

A Platter of 4 pieces costs Php 195.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First bite of the Sweet Soy Chicken Fillet

A new treat from McDonalds.

It's a fried chicken fillet smothered with thick soy-based sauce that has a good mix of sweet, sharp, and spicy flavors, with just the right hint of garlic. 



Not bad for Php 55!

Try it and judge for yourself.

First bite of the Red Velvet Special Mamon

A new mamon variant by Monde.



The mamon itself is fluffy and moist. It has the right amount of chocolate flavor found in authentic red velvet cakes. The cream filling though is not made with cream cheese; that's where the "red velvet" part falls short.



But for a red velvet interpretation of "Limited Edition" mamon, hindi na rin masama.



Try it and judge for yourself.

First bite of the Maple Sugar Cream Cheese Pretzel Nuggets

Something new from Auntie Anne's


Little pretzel bites filled with cream cheese and covered with maple sugar. The subtle flavor of the smooth cheese filling perfectly complements the light sweetness of the maple taste. And those freshly made pretzel nuggets? Yum! 

A great snack option this treat is!

Try it and judge for yourself.
