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.

With whipped cream. $5.50
Chile Pies, San Francisco CA
This was really tasty and I felt less guilty eating it because it didn’t have all that pie crust, and I believe it was even gluten free! And who can resist freshly whipped cream?! Noms!
Chocolate waffle with a peanut buter and toffee crunch filling, whipped cream. $19
Norma’s, Palm Springs CA
Dang it was HOT outside! Norma’s really needs to have more even sun coverage on their patio area. The quickly moving sun through the split canvas is way too bothersome.
As for these waffles – they were LAME! Ugh, I thought the food here was going to be spectacular especially at these prices (I mean twenty bucks for waffles – they better be good)! The waffles were super crispy and tasted like powdered chocolate. They were so hard that you really couldn’t cut into them without squishing all the filling out from between them. This dish was a major sugar-bomb without any waffle satisfaction.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, McCarran International Airport (LAS)
Hadn’t tried this flavor of their ice blended drinks before, and I think it is my favorite so far! I love the combination of cherry and chocolate, and the bits of chocolate covered espresso beans are fun to eat.

Rhubarb chutney, walnut, whipped cream.
Joule, San Francisco CA
I liked the combination of slightly savory and sweet in this dish, and the texture of the buckwheat pancakes was great. I would say that was a pretty successful plate!
Maple syrup, whipped cream, cilantro.
Joule, San Francisco CA
I ordered this as a side because I was really craving carbs. I’m glad I did since these were delicious. Nothing on the plate was overly sweet so I appreciated that.

Poached pear with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream. $7.50
Le P’tit Laurent, San Francisco CA
This was the perfect dessert to end our meal. It wasn’t too sugary sweet and it had a great firm texture. And how can you go wrong with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce?!
