© Cupcakes by Sonja Red Velvet VixenHaving tried a number of Cupcakes by Sonja, it is the Red Velvet Vixen which sweetened my tastebuds just right.

Frankly, a number of their icings are just too sweet, even for a sweet lover like me. But RVV’s cream cheese icing on top is smooth and creamy without leaving a rough taste. It complements the cake’s mild chocolate flavor and moist crumbs. Yum.

Cupcake SamplersSome may argue that it is a little pricey at about P70, but I say it’s worth it (at least for RVV). =) My next favorite worth mention is their carrot cake (cupcake).

Here are some treats for our beloved moms this coming May11/12 :May11 New Orleans Event May11 chelsea-market-day-with-mom Event

SerendraTwo days after invading the Trinoma foodscape, another food tour was sponsored by Spot.ph, this time in upscale Bonifacio High Street and Serendra.

The meeting place was at Krispy Kreme Bonifacio HS where we were treated with our choice doughnut and frozen blend Lotta Latte or ‘Orange You Glad’. We then started with Texas Roadhouse Grill, Kabisera ng Dencio’s, Starbucks, TGIF, and Italiannis. New Orleans capped the set in Bonifacio while Portico started the Serendra group.

KabiseraNewOrleansFull meals greeted us in Portico, Mezza Luna and Polu Kai Grill. Food tasting continued as offered by Cuillere, Mamou, Chelsea and Fu. Coffee break at Kape Isla and our intentionally belated dessert stops at Choco-late De Batirol, Xocolat, Miss Desserts, and Cupcakes by Sonja where we happily received a box of 4 take-home cupcakes! Yum yum! (others maximized the box space with 5 – hmm..)

Similarly in the 1st food tour post, let me personally acknowledge some which stood out.

We were filled with the generous servings of Kabisera ng Dencios and Polu Kai Grill.

PorticoCuillereRecognition for the restaurants with great interior themes and appetizing atmosphere – collectively referred to as ambience, is a giveaway since most of the spots are upscale and is expected to be so. Although many of them deserved to be mentioned, Kabisera, TGIF, New Orleans, Portico, and Mezza Luna topped the list.

Blogger friendly (informative) spots are Krispy Kreme, Texas Roadhouse Grill, Cuillere, and Miss Desserts.

Most accomodating hosts and friendly establishments are Kabisera, New Orleans, Mezza Luna, and Xocolat. At the top of this list is Polu Kai Grill; Aloha!
