The Best Ensaymada For Me

Why am I blogging about this looking-so-ordinary ensaymada? Only ONE reason: so far, this is the best ensaymada I have ever tasted. It was so cheesy and the bread so soft. I bought this from Good Shepherd's Coffee Store (Baguio City) for only P35.

Blueberries n' Cream Waffles @ Red Mango, SM Mega Mall

After a job interview in Ortigas, I happened to pass by at SM Mega Mall to have something to eat since it was already lunch time. While strolling around, I saw a poster displaying pictures of mouth-watering desserts, and realizing that it was Red Mango, I never had second thoughts.
I entered and since I was not that hungry, I got an order of Blueberries n' Cream Waffles and dove right to it with great satisfaction. Topped with Yogurt, I savored every bite of nourishment and enjoyed each slice of fair sweetness and smooth creaminess.
At an affordable price of P150 (waffle P85, yogurt topping P40 and bottled water P25), dining in at Red Mango was an experience.

Mushroomburger in Tagaytay City, Cavite

The province of Cavite is known for growing quality and world-class mushrooms, and Tagaytay City has been popular for a particular food place named Mushroomburger where you can have a variety of food products with mushrooms as the main ingredient.

Last June 30, Yobs and I went to Tagaytay to experience Sonya's Garden. After dining in and taking photos around the place, we headed to Mushroomburger without any plans of going there.
Since we were both full, we decided to order only one regular mushroom burger to share, and two regular mushroom burgers with cheese for takeout for my Mom and cousin, Fernan.
The bun was fresh and the patty tasted good. According to Yobs, the patty was yummy and tasty, not to mention that it is healthy because it is made of fresh mushrooms and less preservatives and extenders.
I got to wolf down my half piece in four big bites, and gave my last one to Yobs since he really loved it. Ever since, mushrooms are my favorite, and I would definitely come back to Mushroomburger.
The products taste great and the prices are affordable. That is why many people are coming to the store and patiently falling in line just to have a chew of their burgers. They also have combo meals for rice and pasta lovers.
Mushroomburger is located at 70 Gen. Aguinaldo Highway, Tagaytay City.
