Tiramisu @ Jeepney Cafe

I recently attended the Acer Mobile Phone press conference last week in Hotel Intercontinental and since the press con will start at around 11am, that means i have to leave two hours earlier just to be on time. I just hate rush hours.

Tiramisu P130

I arrived in the hotel 30 minutes earlier but since food chains are far from the hotel vicinity, I decided to have coffee in the Hotel managed coffee shop called Jeepney Cafe. I ordered my favorite Tiramisu and a cup of one of the most expensive coffee Ive ever had (P180 / standard cup) oh well. The Tiramisu doesn’t have broas or lady finger which undoubtedly my favorite part but it was definitely one of the creamiest Tiramisu Ive tasted.

The overall flavor was more than satisfactory and its definitely well worth the price. I’ll definitely go back for their Tiramisu and I’ll make sure I’ll bring my own Venti Starbucks Caramel Latte.:)

Gomuko Ramen @ Sakura

Healthy lifestyle is so hard to maintain, achieve and most of the time its also expensive:) I went to Mall of Asia a couple of days ago to have my first day of workout in Fitness First. With literally empty stomach, I decided to look for a Japanese restaurant. Luckily I found Sakura, I immediately requested for the menu card and since Its raining I ordered Gomuko Ramen, California Temaki and Japanese green tea.

I love Asian food, Who doesn’t? I must admit, I had a hard time choosing from the menu and instead of going back and forth and possibly ending up with the wrong choice I just asked Jessica for suggestions since she’s already familiar with the restaurants menu. After a short chat she ordered Pork with red curry paste while she recommended that I try their Beef Rendang. It’s no doubt that the place is her favorite restaurant, in fact she calls this restaurant her office extension. Hmmm I dont think thats advisable for me:) (more…)
