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.
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.
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.
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.
