Our lunch at Lili Cantonese restaurant didn’t include coffee or dessert and we must have that to complete our meal. From Malate we headed to The Fort to UCC Park Cafe to satisfy our need for caffeine and sugar.
They had all sorts of Japanese coffee for sale at the entrance.
I love the cakes of UCC. They had a lot of choices but I had my favorites so it wasn’t hard to choose 3 from all of these mouthwatering desserts.
UCC is popular for making and serving their coffee using a siphon coffee maker. Each cup of coffee is made only upon order guaranteeing its freshness.
The first cake I chose was this ginormous banana carrot cake. This had to be the moistest cake I’ve ever eaten. Layers of banana and carrot cake alternate to produce this 4 layer cake frosted with yummy cream cheese frosting.

UCC’s macadamia sans rival is definitely going into my list of Manila’s best sans rival. Their sans rival was super crunchy and just had the perfect amount of buttercream. The macadamia nuts were just a perfect addition to this scrumptious dessert.

For me the best chocolate dessert in UCC is the chocolate xanadu. It looks deceptively simple in this picture.

When you split it open you can see the complex layers of chocolate ganache, chocolate mousse, whipped cream, chocolate cake, chocolate chips, and cashew meringue. I guarantee you will moan when you take your first bite. The cake was the perfect combination of creamy, soft, crunchy and 100% sinful.
9 friends, 3 cakes, 7 coffees, big smiles and a perfect end to a day of eating.
