SHOP: A bakeshop that specializes in making cakes, breads, and pastries that also serve delicious rice dishes.

PRODUCT: Salisbury Steak with Black Forest

PRICE: around 150 pesos meal including drinks.

EXPERIENCE: I like the Salisbury steak. It is like burger steak but better because of the mashed potato on the side. I liked the black forest because it's soft, smooth, and melts in your mouth.

Used to be My Fave
Just OK 2013-09-20
I like Brazo de Mercedes very much. I'm not a cake person because I consider myself a pie person. I'm not the biggest fan of sponge or chiffon cake that's why I like Brazo de Mercedes because it's a cake that doesn't taste like it. It's like a meringue but I think softer.

 Brazo de Mercedes

When they gave me this as a birthday cake, I was really excited because all these years, I haven't eaten Brazo anymore. It has always been those fancy cakes and pies but seldom this one.

When I took the first slice, I wasn't happy with it. sad It tasted strange. It's not sweet like what I was anticipating it to be. It wasn't how I remembered it but I still appreciated the effort of giving me a cake for my birthday and most of the kids seemed to enjoy this. smile

affordable yummy and very delicious. the whole family will really be sad
without this cake when we celebrate something.

The Softest
Smile 2012-11-29

   Fluffy Mamon

I don't think that I will ever find a mamon softer than or as soft as Red Ribbon's Fluffy Mamon. It's actually a combination of soft and firm. It's soft like a cotton candy but the bread is firm. The sweetness is just right that's why I can finish two to three pieces in one sitting. smile

They have more types of delicious bread and pastries available all the time but this is my all-time favorite. tongue

Pan-grilled Delight
Smile 2012-10-10
It has been a long time since I ate at Red Ribbon especially their Pan-grille Meal. I always go here not to eat but buy cake or pastries or bread like mamon and cheese roll. Those two are my favorite. smile

I was sad to know that they no longer offer the full pan-grilled meal. They only have half still I ordered it.

   Pan-Grilled Meal

It was still delicious. It was crispy and it was full of flavor. But I think this would taste even better if they added "atsara" or make the rice into garlic rice. smile

Salisbury Steak
Smile 2012-10-09


I can't remember when was the last time I went to Red Ribbon to eat instead of buying a cake or their other baked goodies.

   Salisbury Steak

I have always liked their Salisbury Steak and I just hope it would still taste the way how I remembered it.

It was still delicious (Thank God) but I think the burger patty became smaller than before.

Sweet Nothings For The Day
Smile 2012-08-09

Aching for dessert in this cold day we went inside the cozy and warm interiors of Red Ribbon. Even this restaurant has been more famous for its cakes and pastries they also served other mean dishes as well.

AMBIENCE

This branch can accomodate a small number of people. It has outside seating though which is conducive to sit down when the weather is not as rainy as these pass few days. Inside the seating area can accommodate at least 20 or more persons.

 

SERVICE

Most of the customers who dine at this restaurant come from the crowd from Heart Center and the surrounding offices. The service crew were polite and gladly assisted us. The guy who assisted us was wondering what I was doing taking the basket and placing it on top of the table instead of taking it directly to the cashier to pay. He must have had a moment of doubt that I was taking the baked goodies and running away with it. Well, I was not running. He waited patiently as I took pictures of my orders.

   Cake and Banana Crunch P23

Since lunch break is nearly over I decided to have my orders wrapped ready to go. I was happy
with my 2 slices of banana crunch since their banana crunch loaf was not available.

   Cinnamon Roll P26/ Ensamaida P25

I ordered an ensamaida and a cinnamon roll for my daughter. We were dividing the banana crunch between the two of us. I am interested to place future orders for group meetings in the office since they served Party Packages. I would love to order a Party Package of All Time Palabok which costs P550 and can serve a group of 8 to 12 persons. I can order some puto to go with it too.

Yummy nga
Smile 2011-08-03
My friend from abroad wants some “pasalubong” coming from Red Ribbon since her parents are going there for a quick vacation.

I went there yesterday to pick up the breads she has requested. Ever since that I was young, I'm a big fan of Red Ribbon cakes, breads and even their meals. However, lately, I seldom go there because of so many other restaurants to choose from. But if it for cakes, I'd truly recommend Red Ribbon.

A couple of months back, I've been hearing and seeing so many ads all over the Metro of this Yummy Cheese Roll from Red Ribbon. I've been buying cheese rolls from another famous bakeshop before. It may be a bit pricey but the taste was so worth it. When I heard about this new product of Red Ribbon, I got curious because it was much lesser than the one I've been buying. Also, it's from Red Ribbon so I think there's nothing much to lose when it comes to the taste.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to actually try their Yummy Cheese rolls. I bought like 6 pieces of it so I could share them to my family. And if I'll like it, I'd probably keep them to myself. tongue

   Yummy Cheese Rolls

As expected, their bread is really good. Red Ribbon is known for baking soft and delicious breads, cakes and pastries. The rolls is soft, sweetened with sugar combined with a touch of butter. I was surprised how generous they have become in putting the cheese inside the roll. I somehow expected that they'll put a small piece of cheese inside the bread which won't matter to me because the bread alone is already delicious. I didn't expect that until I reached the last bite there is still cheese to enjoy.

   Ready to eat 'em

And because of that experience, I have now a new place where I can get cheese roll for a lower price but still quality wise. For those who are interested, it only cost 25 pesos a piece. Oh by the way, since I was so delighted, I also bought some for my friend in abroad so she will be able to enjoy it like I did.

boohoo to small servings :D
Just OK 2011-03-23
WHY
lunchtime..in need of sustenance
WHO
Me
WHERE
Red Ribbon @ Heart Center

THE LOWDOWN
I had a lot of errands for this day and I haven't had a decent meal yet. I had lots of choices at the Matalino St. area but i picked out Red Ribbon amongst all others because I suddenly had a craving for one of their dishes that I have loved since 2002 when I was still having my OJT at Viva Entertainment at E. Rodriguez.

THE CHOICE
I had a set meal consisting of Salisbury Steak (craving for this), Ube cake (craving for this too) and 1 glass of regular sized softdrink. The total bill was for P160. Quite a lot but since, like what I've said, I was craving for their Salisbury Steak so I ordered and waited.

When it arrived after 10minutes or so, I was disappointed because I saw that the Salisbury Steak that I used to love was smaller in size. Boohoo! Even the cake slice was smaller. Everytime I eat at random Red Ribbon branches, I always get disappointed. I remember when I used to buy this set meal for less than a hundred.

Their Salisbury Steak used to be a little more oblong in size and thicker but now, its just the same size with Jollibee's Burgersteak. And I don't know if I'm accurate but the taste is similar too. maybe I should just eat at Jollibee if I'm craving for 'salisbury' steak. Then I could save more. Tsk tsk.

THE VERDICT
I think I'm going to rest for now eating at this franchise, after all, I am not satisfied with their food (except for their Banana Crunch), and the prices. Yeah, I think I'm going to do just that.sad

 smaller and thinner 'steak'

 still great but small serving
