This was the first time I’d had Japanese cheesecake, and it really tasty and fun! I loved the super light and jiggly texture. It was so fluffy and airy that I could have probably eaten the whole thing! I would definitely eat this again. 🙂


Mango madness cake – Starbucks

Mango madness cake - Starbucks
I couldn’t find a description of this dessert on the Starbucks Philippines website, but I would describe it as a soft whipped cheesecake layered with buttery golden graham cracker crusts, topped with mango slices, whipped cream, and decorative white chocolate. Yet another example of how Starbucks shafts their American customers with crappy food options! 140 PHP

Starbucks, Tagaytay
This is probably the most beautiful Starbucks location I’ve been to yet. The store is literally built into the side of a cliff overlooking Taal lake and volcano!

Cheesecake with blueberry swirl ice cream – Bi-Rite Creamery

Cheesecake with blueberry swirl ice cream - Bi-Rite Creamery
Oh Bi-Rite Creamery, how I still love you! You have never failed me on delicious flavors or served weird waxy ice cream. I will say that the blueberry swirl was verging on being too sweet, but the whole thing was still delicious! Kid size $2.50

Blackberry cheesecake – 17 North Roadside Kitchen

Blackberry cheesecake - 17 North Roadside Kitchen
Because the lights had gone out in the restaurant midway through dinner, the place was pretty dark by the end of our meal so a co-worker offered his cell phone light so I could take a photo of dessert, lol! Take my word that there is a blackberry sauce underneath that’s obscured by the shadow. The cheesecake was ok, but was more crumbly than I like. Three course dinner $30

Beach on Sullivan’s Island. I know you can’t tell from the pic, but there were actually quite a few people out on the beach enjoying the weather that day.
