Last stop of this Malate Food Crawl! Am I happy that it’s a dessert place? You bet it! 😀
Oh my…am I in cake heaven? Haha. This is one of the new ventures of the LJC Group but it has been with them for years now. They only decided in 2015 to finally set up a section for this. Aside from their delectable sweets, they also serve meals. But if you must, do have their cakes here. Below are the ones we’ve tasted that day. 🙂
Using imported queso de bola, the taste of that cheese wasn’t overpowering. I like how it was served warm and was a bit crumbly on the edges.
This may seem crumbly or flaky but I was surprised at how the shell held that filling in. Consisting of minced pork, raisins and veggies, this is perfect as a merienda.
I loved the density of this cake. I especially liked the addition of walnuts here as it adds that character to the cake.
And this one has a surprise inside. This small cake appears to be strawberry but it has lemon hints in it. When you slice it up, it’s made of several layered crepes that’s been layered with lemon cream. It didn’t border on being tangy but it had this gentle taste to it. And yes, it’s so pretty right! ❤
And just when I thought it was over, they served more slices of their other cakes. Waaahhh…sugar overload! Among the cakes above, I loved the Yuki Mousse Cake. It was so smooth and yummy that I want that whole cake to myself. I’m amazed at how sweet it was yet very gentle on the tongue. I’m deeming this my fave cake at the moment. 😉
So glad that they have another outlet over in SM Mega Fashion Hall as that is more accessible for me. But overall, I’m glad they decided to unveil this bakeshop for all to see and taste. I’m happy to say that we did end this Malate Food Crawl on a sweet note. It was so nice meeting my fellow foodies and learning more about the LJC Group. Their choices are so varied that it would cater to anyone’s palate. 🙂
