Tasty Tuesday: Culinary Adventures in the Philippines Part 2

Last week I wrote about some of the culinary highlights from my Philippine trip. As previously mentioned, I discovered a lot so here’s part two. Keep these in mind if you live in, are going to the Philippines or just looking for ideas for your next meal:

If you want something refreshing…
I suggest the strawberry mint lemonade from Chelsea Market & Café. They have a great drink selection to cool off, especially since summer is in full swing in Manila.

If you’re looking for the perfect breakfast…
Look no further, Breakfast at Antonio’s in Tagaytay is THE spot. Literally everything on the menu is incredible. The chef uses only the best ingredients, mostly from his nearby farm. Everything is made from scratch, just like this corned beef served with garlic rice and fried eggs. You have to leave Manila to get to it but it’s more than worth the drive.

If you want something made just for you…
Try Project Pie. You get to customize your own pizza and watch them make it right in front of you. If you’re not feeling creative, you can just order off the menu. Plus they have southern-style sweet tea, which I’ve never found anywhere else in the Philippines.

If you’re craving something sweet…
Go to one of the many Café Breton branches and order a “La Pinay”. It’s one of my favorite desserts ever and a must-try. It’s a dessert crêpe filled with Philippine mangoes (the best in the world), drizzled with chocolate sauce and served hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Pure decadence.

If you’re looking for the perfect gift…
Order a box of cookies from Bad Cookie. I was introduced to these amazing cookies by my aunt. They’re super rich and satisfying. So far I’ve only tried Cheeseoreosorous, an oreo cheesecake cookie, and I’m addicted. I can’t wait to try more of their amazing flavors so if anyone wants to send some my way, feel free!
