With Cebu’s booming restaurant scene, it’s becoming difficult to keep up with all that’s new. As a foodie and someone who writes about what I eat, I’m still surprised by the big leap the local food scene has taken this year. There are simply more dining choices for people to choose from and desserts are no exception. Here’s a list to help you in your dessert hunt. I’m sure there are plenty more places we forgot to mention, let us know in the comments your fave desserts.
- Malicious cookies at Marco Polo
If you happen to drop by Marco Polo, do yourself a favor and don’t leave without getting a handful of Malicious cookies. Perfect with black coffee.
- French Macarons at BOCAS Modern Patisserie
If you want a little touch of Paris in your dessert, head over to BOCAS Modern Patisserie. Their macarons literally melt in your mouth and the presentation is nothing like I have ever seen.
- Soft Serve Ice Cream at Room for Dessert
What’s not to drool about this? It was also featured in Insider Food. Cotton candy, ice cream, and chocolate – it has everything we love as kids!
- Nutella Crepe at Tymad Bistro
Do you love Nutella? This crepe is made for you then. Super rich and creamy! Made just right, not too thick and not too thin.
- Ice cream Cheesecake at Gold Mango Restaurant
Since Gold Mango is in Mactan, it’s a bit underrated but I still think their Ice Cream Cheesecake is a winner among all cheesecakes! It’s their signature dessert.
- Frozen Mango and Cheesecake Bingsu at Sulbing Dessert Café
The Mango Bingsu in Sulbing Dessert Café is the right complement for the scorching Philippine heat. A Bingsu is basically shaved iced with various ingredients sprinkled on top. Definitely a summer treat.
- Mango Ice Cream from Avalanche Ice Cream Shop
First in the Visayas to use liquid nitrogen to freeze the ice cream, Avalanche Ice Cream Shop even uses a variant of the element as a dip. Personally, I like the Mango Ice Cream. There are many other flavors to choose from though in case we don’t share the same love for Mango.
- Chocolate Truffle at The Chocolate Chamber
We have been fans of The Chocolate Chamber for a very long time. My favorite is their Chocolate Truffle. Also worth trying are their Sikwati and Chocolate Ensaymada.
