My Birthday Cakes

I received two delicious cakes on my birthday.  I am wondering if my friends are trying to fatten me up as I grow older. 

Tita Ludette Mossesgeld Moy gave me and my brother Lady M’s signature cake, Mille Crepes, which is 20 layers of hand made thin crepes, layered with a light custard cream.  THE BEST!!!!

 I have tasted only one that comes close to this and it was by Gaita Fores in one of her deserts which I truly truly enjoyed, Crepe Dulce de Leche sapin sapin, carabao milk gelato, rum poached mangoes and strawberries, batangas cacao lava. What a creative desert….and truly DIVINE!!!  Gaita is one of my favorite chefs…I like her type of food….. and we have the same name.

Another cake I received was from my friend Derick Tee King.  It was a cake from Miette and it came in this beautiful wrapping.  Derick said that it is called the Princess Cake and he got it for me because he said I was a “princess.” Derick is definitely my friend!  “The cake shop darling and European birthday classic ~ always pale green with a pink rose. It consists of genoise sponge cake moistened with Chambord, a layer of homemade raspberry jam, pastry cream and lightly sweetened Straus Family Creamery whipped cream. Rather than the traditional marzipan covering, we drape our cake in a white chocolate fondant.”

Tempt yourself in Chocolat, the signature chocolate shop of world-renowned Chef Frédéric Robert, Executive Pastry Chef of the Wynn Las Vegas, on the Wynn Esplanade. Javier’s favorite….. and mine. Javier removes the chocolate first, eats the gigantic strawberry then eats the chocolate. Funny…… and he keeps asking for more! 192846283503_0_alb.jpg

As soon as I saw these t-shirts in the Culte Femme event last saturday, I immediately purchased them for my two friends who tagged along with me that day- Weng and Neng.  It fits them perfectly as they like baking.  Aside from their names rhyming, they have been inseparable friends since they met nine years ago.

They brought for me some baked goodies which i would like to share with you.

 They recommend that you eat the bread with pizza sauce….

They do not bake for a living but do it as a hobby. Weng is the Master Baker and Neng is the apprentice.They do have real jobs – Weng is an occupational therapist ( works with children with learning disabilities ) and Neng is a tutor.

I hope you can support their hobby. For orders- mobile#:  0917.866.7897. Since they live all the way in the South, orders will have to be picked up in Agua Vida San Antonio Arcade, Forbes Park, Makati

My Favorite Tapa

By | Yummy! | No Comments

It seems like there are many other tapa lovers out there.  And I am so happy I discovered 3 more in addition to my TOP THREE!

871884773503_0_alb.jpgMarivic Poblador Pineda’s favorite tapa – She shared with me her favorite tapa and I went to get myself one to try.  There were two kinds available – Classic and Mega.  Since Marvs failed to mention which tapa she likes, I got both. Though the salesgirl mentioned that Mega was the more saleable one and it is the one that Lucy Torres Gomez buys.  May trivia pa!  And true enough, the Mega ( sweet ) was really good and I did not like the Classic ( salty ) since it was ordinary. Pica Deli  P 560.00 / kilo  cell #:  0917.530.6558  tel #:  438-3476   Address: #83A Katipunan, White Plains 

514774773503_0_alb.jpgEdward Lim’s favorite tapa – Edward called me as soon as he read my TTT blog and he told me about his favorite tapa.  He is so cute!  :-)  He not only told me about it but he sent me a whole pack of it to try.  I tried it as soon as he delivered it to my house.  SARAP!!!!!!!! And finally it is not a sweet version but salty.   My brother in law said that it was good and it tasted almost like the tapa in Polo Club in the past.  Edward said that he and his friends pool their orders before he sends his driver to pick it up all the way in Quezon City…para “sulit” the trip. According to him, the one who makes the tapa is Dolor Guevarra who is the agent of Susan Roces….may tsismis pa behind the tapa!  :-)
Dolor Guevarra P 400.00 / kilo.  Cell # :  +63.920.914.3031 Address:  338 Embassy Terrace Homes, Tierra pura Home, Tandang Sora QC

235864773503_0_alb.jpgBrenda Consengco’s favorite tapa – Brenda let me try this tapa a long time ago and I failed to put this in my TOP list.  She called my attention as to why i did not include it and insisted she send me again another pack.  So I tried it again and…… okay it can pass as my favorite too. It is her favorite because she is the one selling it…so of course…Her version is salty.  Remind her that you like plenty fat in your tapa :-)  Cell #:  0917.537.1892  P 450.00 /kilo ( with delivery in Makati and Pasig area )

When I cook my tapa, I have it cut into smaller pieces and I like it slightly brown.  For me, it makes a big difference in the taste and enjoying the tapa experience. 

Thanks guys for sharing your favorite tapa, they are now mine too.

TTT-Top Three Tapas

By | Finds, Yummy! | One Comment

I am in constant search for the best tapas in our country.  So far, these are the TOP 3 for me.  They are all the sweet type ( filipino style ).
1.)  Tapas de Gracia (cell# 0917-805-6207) – I discovered this in Salcedo market. She has a sweet and a salty version, I tried both but I prefer the sweet one.  It is P 180.00 for 1/2 kilo.

2.)  Sukiyaki tapa of Blue Kitchen.  This was introduced to me by my Mom and it is literally sukiyaki beef made into tapa. Delicious!  P 285.00 for 1/2 kilo.

3.)  Shopwise Beef Tapa.  James kept repeating how tender the beef was and that it was good.  He is very picky and when he says he likes something, then I am happy I know what to feed him. And guess what, it is only P 43.75 for a 1/4 kilo pack.

If you have any other sources of yummy tapa, i hope you will share them with me.

I Love Cheeseballs!

By | What's New at Rustan's, Yummy! | No Comments

evons.jpg

Since Planter’ s and Evon’s cheeseballs disappeared in the market – I have not eaten chesseballs! It is so hard to find good cheeseballs.

A few days ago, I stumbled into this brand and I bought it and tried it.  I liked it and thought it was the closest to Evon’s.

Apparently, when I did my research- looked at the label- went to the website- it is the same company that makes the brand Evon’s.  They probably just changed the packaging.  It is available in Landmark for P 78.40. Evon’s used to cost P 65.00 in Rustan’s.  There was only one can though when i bought.  It was beside a Munch King cheeseballs which is not good.
