Somebody is craving for a cheesecake, not me but my friend.
So I searched over the internet what restaurants offered the best cheesecake in the Metro Manila. And google gave me this website: http://www.spot.ph/gallery/1078/top-10-cheesecakes-in-manila/article/48031. Most of the restaurants are located in Fort Bonifacio which I have crossed out due to its location. We were down to either Katipunan or Tomas Morato. Since my friend has not been to Tomas Morato, there we go for somewhere different (to her but not for me as I have grown up in Tomas Morato :))
#3 on the list was Cheesecake by Uno (P65/slice; P650/whole cake) located at 195-C Scout Fuentebella Street (near corner of Tomas Morato), Quezon City. However seeing the cake at Uno, my friend was not impressed and was craving for Blueberry Cheesecake which they don’t sell at Uno, they only have the New York Cheesecake. So, we went out of the restaurant and searched for another that sells Blueberry Cheesecake.
Nearby, across the street of Tomas Morato, we saw Kitchen of Cakes and Coffee, curious we are we entered and checked on their cakes. We ordered two cakes – blueberry cheesecake and their Best Seller Mango Walnut Cake.
The blueberries on top of the cake were already frozen as such not really good as we were expecting to taste the blueberries and not the ice. PHP100
The Mango Walnut Cake did not impress me as well, there was too much walnut should I say, and there was some salt that I have tasted. PHP90
After finishing our cakes, we craved for some meals, so off we go to Rub for a cheap but delicious BBQ Ribs. However, as usual it is always full and one has to wait for some minutes. To not get bored and waste time, we ordered some food at Shakey’s which is just nearby. We ordered for Mojos n Dip and Margherita Pizza.
Just before we finished our food, someone from Rub called up and asked how long it will take us to get back to the restaurant. I answered “5 minutes”. Hurriedly we finished our food.
We ordered one Singles – Serves 1, Ribs plus 1 side plus 1 rice (P205). We chose spinach and mushroom for the side dish as suggested by the waiter.
To complete our meal, we wanted to have some drinks and maybe another dessert. To try something new, I suggested that we try Afters Espresso and Desserts – it has choices from hot/cold drinks, pastas, sandwiches, cakes, and gelato.
As usual, I ordered for Green Tea Frapuccino, while my friend ordered hot hazelnut drink. We shared in one slice of Belgian Chocolate Cheesecake. The Green Tea Frap has not impressed me as it lacks taste, Starbuck’s Green Tea Frap is more delicious. As for the cheesecake, it was too sweet for our taste but was delicious. I would love to be back in this restaurant to try their gelato, other drinks and the cakes.
There are many other restaurants in Tomas Morato that are worth trying. I have tried some of these already but have not written yet about it.
