Coffee & Cupcakes @ SLICE

Chocolate, yema, and cupcakes– these are a few of my favorite things. I’d like to thank my lucky stars and the food gods for Slice‘s Choco-Yema Cupcakes!

So a couple of weeks ago (haha, sorry late post), I went to BGC to satisfy my craving. It wasn’t hard to tag my friends along because… well… who in his right mind would say no to cupcakes? ūüėÄ

And there must be coffee, of course!

I loved that their capuccino was served with granola. The coffee packed a punch. I actually regretted getting it because I had a hard time sleeping after. My fault. I shouldn’t drink coffee past 6pm. A must-have in the morning, me thinks. I’m not sure how early Slice opens though.

The cupcakes were smaller than I expected but I’d rather have quality than quantity any day. In that case, the cuppycakes did not disappoint! Masarap nga! Even Carlo (our very maselan/choosy friend na ayaw magpa-picture) liked it!

If¬†¬†Argel¬†says something is¬†“masarap” for at least 5x, it means it’s REALLY good.¬†Heard¬†him say the Choco-Yema Cupcake was delish 4x. He said I just didn’t hear the 5th time because I was away, smoking. There’s no smoking area in Slice. I’m sure¬†Sen.¬†Pia Cayetano wouldn’t approve. #1 She bats for non-smoking in public places.#2 She owns Slice. ūüôā¬†¬†

Okay. Choco-Yema Cupcake. A.Wow… B.Yum… C.Wow,yum!!! If I grew up with these around,¬†I would’ve been a fat kid. I practice¬†displine now, so I’ll have it just every time I’m in High Street! :p¬† I feel it would be a crime against myself if I don’t eat¬†it¬†if ¬†I’m just in the area.

Mmmmm… moist cake… luscious frosting… And it’s just (if I remember it correctly) 70php a pop! Not bad for a cupcake in High Street, yes?

If there was a beauty contest for cupcakes, Slice’s Red Velvet will not be my bet. BUT this humble looking thing is probably the yummiest red velvet cupcake I’ve ever had. This is considering I don’t like my dessert too sweet and I love my frosting thick.

The S’mores Cupcake was good but nothing to write home about. Liked the chocolate base but wasn’t delighted with the toppings. Now maybe if it had more melted mallows… Haha! Anyway, I’ll try the Citrus Burst next time. Para hindi naman ako ma-uta sa puro tsokolate.

For a resto that has been around for less than a year, Slice’s menu¬†has a lot to offer. Friends say that I¬†should go¬†back for their Brown Arroz Caldo, Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich¬†and Seafood Puttanesca. I’m definitely trying those and also getting their other desserts!

And of course, getting more Choco-Yema Cupakes! Ahahay! I have to remember to eat with caution!

Eat (tapas), drink (vino), and be merry (in Barcino)!

Thank you universe for giving me a reward last Friday night for the endurance I exhibited from Monday morning to Friday afternoon. But please let me never conduct background investigation, undergo dysmenorrhea, and miss precious time of sleep ever again. If that’s not possible, then just let me be with Oryx in Barcino again!

After dindin in Figaro and drinks in 32nd Street, Oryx brought me to the small wonder that is Barcino. Love the space! Love the ambiance! Love the wine! Love the music! Love the food! For someone like me whose knowledge of wine is close to zilch, Barcino is a good place to learn and enjoy vino. I had a delightful ruby-red tempranillo with a platter of tapas. There were potato salad with olives, jamon serrano, chorizo, bread with salsa, cheese, and some tasty sausages called fuet. :p Oryx had some chicken liver something with his white wine.

with Oryx * awesome foursome

I was lucky enough to meet the marketing manager, Virginia Lopez Cojo and co-owner, Sergi Rostoll. They were kind enough to tell me basic stuff about wine, tapas, and Spain. I will go back because I want to try other kinds of red wine, their bacalao and paella. And because I enjoyed that night so much and I can’t wait to enjoy that much (and more) again. Hopefully, in the Ortigas branch next time.

Salut to more casual, chill nights in Barcino!

Went to Kroc Greenbelt, Cuisine, and Jay-Jay’s with Oryx, Yo, Lean, and Wender. We passed by Tabu. The place was dead. Passed by Piedra. I wanted the crowd dead.

Pigged out on carcinogenic food and drank vodka that cost P7,000 with Red Bull and lemon.

Got to dance and meet new friends.

I want to do it again.

And I want to see the gorgeous guy from Cuisine again.

Hmmm… dapat pala napicturean ko si gorgeous guy!

Snap!
