Chocolate layer cake with strawberry frosting, lemon cookie, peach crepe with chocolate ice cream and chocolate sauce. Buffet
DADS Kamayan Saisaki, Manila PHILIPPINES
The cake and cookie were throw-away dessert, but the peach crepe was pretty good because they make it to order and it’s got ice cream on top. Ice cream makes any dessert better, duh! 🙂
AERA Memorial Museum, Villa Escudero.
Bourbon caramel sauce, vanilla ice cream, candied pecans. $9
Town Hall, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this dessert was very tasty and the peaches were great. The sticky bun was a bit too caramelized on the bottom and hard to cut through, but all the flavors were there and the vanilla ice cream helped to soften up everything.

Tarte peche verveine. Sweet pastry verbena panna cotta, roasted peach quarters. £6
Laduree, London ENGLAND
This tart was REALLY pretty and the verbena panna cotta and peaches were pretty tasty! I was expecting a thinner and more flavorful pastry shell though. This pastry was too thick and clunky, and very difficult to cut through. I expected a lot from Laduree, but they really didn’t deliver the goods.
This place is really OVERRATED! The food is marginal for what it is and the prices are ridiculous for the quality. Even the bellini’s are overpriced. $13
Norma’s, Palm Springs CA
Fresh fruit smoothie shot. Complimentary
Drugs sign, The Parker lobby. The diners at Norma’s must be on drugs to pay these prices and deal with horribly slow service.
Bellini: sparkling wine and peach. $8.50
Kir royal: sparkling wine and creme de cassis. $8.50
L’appart Resto, San Anselmo CA
Mmm, champagne brunch cocktails are delicious and I love mixing it up! L’appart Resto had nice alternatives to the usual mimosa, score!
This bread was really tasty especially with the real butter slathered on top, noms!
Clematis ‘Multi Blue’ (Ranunculaceae), Kentfield.
Fresh mint, peach white sangria: California chardonnay, fresh mint, summer peaches, fresh oranges and lime. $5
Sliderbar, San Francisco CA
Mmm, sangria! This cool sports bar is a nice addition to the restaurant scene in the Castro. It replaced Criolla Kitchen, and was Bagdad Cafe before that. We ended up here after a day of hanging out with friends and the service was amazing! The crowd was young and fun, and the food was pretty tasty too!
Allagash White beer. Refreshing with orange peel and coriander notes. Portland, MA, 5.2% ABV. $6
Naked lady door handle, 24th Street.
Vanilla ice cream and almonds. Family style supper $46 per person
Staple and Fancy, Seattle WA
I’m not a fan of super sweet desserts, but this was on the other end of the spectrum. It was bland and the dough was thick and undercooked. Perhaps this is why I rarely order desserts. Unfortunate since the rest of the meal was delicious up to this point. 😦
