Mae San
Smile 2013-11-27

I had a tour of Manila with my husband and we decided to eat lunch at Mae San. It's been a while since the last time we went to Manila area and was happy to eat at Mae San again.

 

Since I'm not that hungry, I had their lomi instead of rice. I love that my lomi is served very hot. I enjoyed every sip of the soup. The lomi is very tasty and has generous amount of meat and egg on it.

 Siopao

When my co-worker discovered Mae San several months ago, we made a point to go here at least once a month to buy bread or/and dine-in.

Mae San is a combination of bakeshop and restaurant. They sell all sorts of breads and pastries. They sell filled-buns like Asado Roll (which I have tasted already), cakes, and loaf breads.

While waiting for my friends with their purchases, I bought Siopao for a quick snack since I was starting to get dizzy because of hunger.

I wasn't impressed by it. It lacked flavor. It was all bread and minimal filling which was the very common problem I encounter with siopao.

I guess I know what to stay clear when I come back here for our usual trip. lol

Old School Treat
Smile 2012-12-03
When I was a kid, I always go with my mom whenever she goes to the wet market because of these colorful treats called Meringue (or mereng-ge pronounced by market vendors).

It's been a long while since I saw this kind of meringue. I bought one pack which costs a little over 20 pesos. It is still the same taste, very sweet, and melts easily.

   Pink and White Meringue

This can be a gift for your godchildren this coming holiday because it's colorful and sweet. You can skip the candy cane if you're on a tight budget. tongue

Somewhere out There
Smile 2012-09-28
I have read about this place somewhere. My colleague also mentioned to me months ago that we should visit this place although it's a bit far and kind of isolated.

Finally, we had the time and grab the opportunity. The place was a combination of bakeshop and a small dining place. I just don't know if this place was Japanese inspired or Korean. It looked like a Japanese bake shop but they sell Korean dishes like Bibimbap.

   Milk Tea

I ordered their Milk Tea and paired it with Adobo Roll. Their Milk Tea costs 50 bucks with add-ons already. They ran out of pearls so they suggested that I should get nata de coco coffee flavor.

The milk tea was okay. It was creamy but it wasn't as sweet as what I have gotten used to. The nata de coco was good too.

   Asado Roll

As for the Adobo Roll, the bread was soft and big but the filling was very little. Despite the portion of the filling, I still enjoyed it because the bread was tasty.

One advice though, I hope they would enhance their service some more because it take them quite some time to give us our order. Sometimes we need to follow it up a few times.

Asian Cuisine for Less
Smile 2012-09-28

 Mae San Website

A friend of mine brought me here at Mae San for a light and early dinner. She said that her co-employees were the one who introduced this place to her.

I was in the vicinity that time because my mom wanted me to buy hopia and mooncake for our Balikbayan relatives that will be leaving this weekend to go back to the States.

 Mae San

The place was crowded both diners and those who just go there to buy breads. The place was well-lit and the colors that they used for the bake shop's interior were pleasing...white and pink.

Their breads were displayed outside like a typical bread shop that we see inside malls. And as for the prices, they were really cheaper than those much more commercialized ones. Actually, it took me quite some time to pick what I would eat. Their breads looked really yummy but they also have very interesting and very affordable meals like their Chicken Pepper Rice.

   Chicken Pepper Rice

Their Chicken Pepper Rice cost less than 150 pesos and serving was good enough for two persons. It was served in a sizzling plate and it smelled so good. When I took a spoonful, it was very delicious. It was a little sweetish because of the sauce that they used but it still has a touch of spiciness because of the pepper. My money was so worth it.

 Mae San's Cakes

For the dessert, I was contemplating between their cakes or their ice cream. Would you believe that a slice of their cake starts at 22 pesos? That is how cheap their baked products are.

   Peach Melba

I opted to order Peach Melba because their ice cream looks yummier than the cake and it is easy to share especially that the Peach Melba consisted of three scoops of ice cream.

For 89 pesos, it was all right. The scoop was a bit smaller compared to the usual serving of Banana Split or Peach Melba that I have tried in other ice cream parlors but generally, the dessert was fine.

I wish I could go back here because there are other meals I want to try and breads I want to buy. The place is kind of far from where I am. I hope they have a different branch nearer to Quezon City. tongue
