My friend and co-blogger Jin invited to try out her new cake creations at UCC Vienna Cafe.
She promised to feed me first so after a long perusal of the menu I finally found something healthy and almost “Cohen” approved. The yakiniku beef was so tender and flavorful with all the sauce that I didn’t need any dressing to eat my veggies. This was a really good and satisfying salad.
Let me tell you first, I’m not fond of halo halo since I don’t like any form of beans. That’s the reason Razon’s is the only halo halo I will eat if at all. Halo halo has just never been a favorite dessert of mine. With that disclaimer I will now let you know what my impression of the halo halo cake is.
The halo halo cake was definitely well thought of. Small details like a layer of leche flan, ube halaya and cream in between the layers ube chiffon cake was brilliant. Jin however frowned when I started picking just the pieces of banana, langka and leche flan. She kept telling me to eat the whole thing together. Giggling I replied, “the thick cake won’t fit my mouth!” I ate all the yummy nangkasuy ice cream too.
To be fair I’m not really the target market for cakes like these. I prefer any dessert to be dark brown (chocolate) in color. That’s it. But for people who love halo halo then you must try this cake. It’s like having your halo halo and eating your cake too. What could be better than that?
