New desserts from Greenwich

Greenwich, my favorite fastfood-of-the-moment brings in new desserts to their menu. If there’s one thing I look forward to after a meal, it’s dessert. The new desserts offered are the very reasons why I keep coming back every week, aside from their lasagna. First off is the Overstuffed Brazo de Mercedes, Php 99. Overstuffed means there’s more custard filling than the meringue part which I love. I’m really not a fan of icings and meringues, so the creamy yellow custard filling is a treat for me. It’s not sickly sweet either, but one serving of this can be shared by two people to lessen the guilt.

Dulcelin’s Mango Torte

It was my mother’s birthday and I’m planning to buy her a cake that will suit her finicky taste. She doesn’t want her cakes too sweet, she doesn’t want so much toppings, she just want her cake simple, yet delicious. Estrel’s Caramel Cake would have been perfect at that time but when I called, all their cakes were sold out. I was told that I should reserve a day earlier since their cakes are made-to-order. And so I searched for another alternative, a friend suggested Dulcelin’s Mango Torte.

A new dessert haven for chocolate lovers, Heavenly Chocolates

After enjoying our Italian food at Bellissimo, we decided to cap the evening with dessert. And so we headed to the newly opened dessert place along Roces Ave. called Heavenly Chocolates, which I learned from The place is quiet and relaxed, perfect way to enjoy your drink of hot choco or cold chocolate drinks. Before we even get to order, the attendant gave us free taste of the Sachi Nama chocolates. We were given bite-sized chocolates that we immediately ate and boy, had I known that the chocolate was this good, I could have eaten it little by little to savor the flavor of the chocolate. The texture is so smooth it melts in your mouth quickly. The texture reminds me of Meiji Melty Kiss chocolates. I wasn’t able to take pictures of the Sachi Nama chocolates because even my officemates munched them at once. They sell these chocolates at Php 350 per box and they come in different variants too.

Each of us ordered different drinks, one ordered Dark Chocolate hot drink (Php 80) and the rest of us ordered the Rated R21 drinks (Php 135), Mexican Mocha and Marula Malt, which contains chocolate liqueur.

I liked the taste of Mexican Mocha over the Marula Malt. Mexican Mocha has a deep chocolate taste while Marula Malt is on the sweet side and not too chocolate-y for me. The owner is generous enough to give us samples of the chocolates that will be arriving in their shop soon. We immediately picked each chocolate pieces we forgot to take photos of them first (oops!). We were given a dark chocolate and milk chocolate variant. I preferred the dark chocolate because I find the milk chocolate a tad sweeter for my taste.

We were eager to try their Chocolate Pasta but it’s not available at that time. Their specialty cakes will also be available soon so this place deserves another visit and hopefully, they’ll be in full blast to serve all things chocolate.
