Chocolate Spoon by Icebergs, Manila PHILIPPINES
After a long day exploring Robinsons Place Manila, we needed a little treat to keep us going. This sundae did just the trick. I don’t think the ice cream was all that great, but I liked the overall flavor of the sundae.
I’m a big fan of hazelnut flavors for breakfast and so are millions of others (Nutella anyone?). This hazelnut twist was surprisingly hearty for a treat that only cost two fifty. I loved the texture of the crushed hazelnuts and the sweet glazed dough. Mmm! $2.50 Cafe Besalu, Seattle WA
Spanish tortilla, Iberico ham, sausage, scrambled eggs, hazelnuts, cheese, toast, orange juice, coffee. Dolce Sitges, Sitges ES
The breakfast buffet at Dolce Sitges was pretty kick-ass! This was only one plate I ate, but they definitely had much more to offer. We were unapologetic about loading up on breakfast before heading out for a day of sightseeing, hehe. We paid for it, right? And I felt like we would burn off the calories anyway. One downside to eating SO much breakfast was that I missed out on some food opportunities while touring simply because was still full. #touristproblems 🙂
Iberico ham legs. This was a first! I’d never seen carving stations like this before where you can order as much ham as you want and the attendant will carve it directly off the leg. Now that’s what I call “cut-to-order”!
Green apple emulsion, braised leeks, hazelnuts. With extra scallop $40 Workshop Kitchen + Bar, Palm Springs CA
Mmm, this was SO delicious! The green apple emulsion went perfectly with the scallops. The whole dish tasted fresh and new. BUT I think $40 is pretty steep even with an extra scallop added. This restaurant was good overall, but they’re on the border of being overpriced. Just sayin’.
Wood-charred brussels sprouts, aged balsamico, herbes de provence. $9
Bread and olive oil. Complimentary
Boomers Palm Springs. This park is fairly small, but it’s Palm Springs so that’s expected.
