SLICE, where desserts come first

Post Content

If there is one of the many friends I love to meet, that would be Clang, who I fondly call as Clangkers. Since I haven’t seen her in a while, I invited her out for a foodie trip. But before we went to the main event, we were looking for a dessert place and spotted SLICE.


We checked their menu and noticed they are offering healthy stuff but the thing that caught our attention was two of their juices — Moringa Miracle and Kalemonade. That instant, we hit SLICE inside!

SLICE muffins and cookies

As soon as you enter, there is a sumptuous looking table on the left that holds different muffins and cookies lineup. As well as this fridge that holds their sandwiches, salads, yogurt, veggie and fruit sticks, milks, sodas and juices.

SLICE Morning Glory and Nuts About Banana muffins


This fridge would also caught your attention because they are keeping the yummy-looking cakes cool!

It’s very unfortunate that the two juices we were interested to try were not available so we chose the available juice on the menu, Raving Raspberry Juice. I’m assuming this is not the powder type of juice since they are offering healthy grub and so if this is fresh then it must be really good! Just enough sweetness and very refreshing! It was served on a tall glass which is just about right since they charged a hundred pesos for it.

Both muffins are really good! As per SLICE, their handmade muffins contain less sugar than traditional recipes and most are loaded with fresh fruits which make them healthier.

SLICE Morning Glory and Nuts About Banana muffins

{ Morning Glory Php70 and Nuts About Banana Php60 muffins }

Morning Glory — high fiber and nutritious perfect for breakfast or a snack made from apples, carrots, walnuts, coconut flakes and raisins and partly wholewheat flour.

Nuts About Banana — made from mashed and bits of banana with generous chunks of walnuts.


If you are hanging out with just a friend, better pick the seat on the right-most area upon entering. The chairs are comfortable, the table is lower than the other tables and perfect for catching-up chikahan with a girl friend.

Dining at Bellini’s

Post Content

One Thursday evening, My B and I needed to go to the groceries but had to go to dinner first. I thought we would stop by our usual comfort-food-comfort-place but B surprisingly asked to have dinner in Cubao X. Since we haven’t dined together at Bellini’s, that’s our hot spot to dine, finally.

You won’t feel trapped in this space because of the paintings all over the place — the walls, the ceilings, practically everywhere. They assumed the colors of the rainbow and it would feel like you are really in a different country.

Whenever I can’t decide which to order, my default order (if available) would have to be the pesto pasta with grilled chicken. With that said, it means I have tried and loved pesto pasta from different restaurants. And so… This is the most surprising element of the night! As soon as I took a bite of the pasta, it wasn’t al dente. The sauce was nothing special too. Although the chicken was a bit better than the last I’ve tasted, only because it has the right amount of saltiness to it. But that’s about all there is to it. Even though I wasn’t satisfied, I made my way to finish the last piece on my plate.

But that only backfired when we got the bill and found out that since they do not offer this pasta combo (pesto pasta with grilled chicken), that particular order was a special order which also has a special price of a whopping Php400!

I was about to let go of it but the thing that I hated the most was they weren’t trained to at least inform the dining customers that if they are ordering a “special combination”, it was on a special rate too. Although eating that pasta certainly did not taste special at all!

But… since nothing can be done anymore, we just had to pay our orders with two mental notes: 1) I will ensure that if I am ordering something that’s out of the menu, I will inquire if it will cost me more… and 2) If on the first bite I am not satisfied, I will immediately inform them, so as not to just settle and eventually backfired on me!

Although there were some mishaps, I was happy with our dining experience because of the guitar man singing on the background and the colorful paintings. With the food, I just wish I would be able to try something that is really delicious that would wipe off my memory of their expensive pesto pasta.

Have you tried this resto? How was your experience? I would love to know!
