MAY 2011 – Cebu
Living in Cebu for a few months made me miss Manila every single day. The lifestyle is very diverse and the fact that I have to go home in a house without my family after a long tiring day at work kind of sulks me up.
I’ve resorted to eating out and watching movies in Ayala once in a while to make me feel better. It somehow made me feel like “I am home”, minus the fact that I have to commute and the mall close early!
Anyway, I was craving for French Macarons since I arrived in Cebu! Glad that they have Vanille at the mall because it became my “go-to” macaron stop.
Vanille will definitely catch your attention when you visit Ayala Cebu because of it’s beautiful interior!
For my first time visiting Vanille, I ordered the basics — vanilla and chocolate.
Sparkling grape drinks is my weakness! I have just given up drinking soda so this was perfect.
The happiest girl that night!
I love Mexican food! I could eat Mexican food every day! Talk about my undying love for La Delica Cebu! We wanted to try Mooon Cafe! It’s always full every time we pass by. So we really planned a date to go and wait outside the restaurant to be seated! (The whole reservation system is not a thing in the Philippines, unfortunately lol ).
Nachos for appetizer
I ordered this fruit punch to refresh me. It was pretty humid that day so I need something good to rehydrate me!
According to him,it tastes horrible! “kaya pala secret” (that’s why it’s a secret”
We are in love with Yellow Cab’s Charlie Chan so we ordered this when we saw it on the menu.
Another disappointment! It’s unappetizing and nothing like Clara Ole’s kung pao mix even!!
Deep friend chicken smothered with cheese!
The chicken fingers were not tender at all and the cheese sauce was nothing special.
We love Quesadillas! We were so excited to try both (especially after the disappointing pasta dish!)
The chicken quesadilla doesn’t seem to have enough filling at all. Over priced for a chicken quesadilla without chicken.
Their cheese quesadilla broke my heart! The cheap cheese that they used was not melted at all! Its like eating a lumpia wrapper with grated Eden Cheese!
..and this tastes like burnt oil with mayonnaise and a hint of tomato + cheese. GREAT
I was actually relieved to know that he felt the same about Mooon Cafe! I completely thought I was just not in the mood that night, so I did not say anything.
As we exited Mooon Cafe, I found myself wishing that I have ordered more in Vanille!
