Mom & Tina’s Bakery Cafe
G/F Unit 14 Tropical Palm Plaza, Perea cor. Dela Rosa St., Legaspi Village, Makati City
I dropped by the office last week though I was on leave. I don’t know why but I guess I missed work? Anyhow, I had quite a great time with colleagues Jo & Miko during dinner. Jo recommended Mom &a Tina’s Bakery Cafe w/c I haven’t heard of before. I’m so glad we went through with it coz the food is good! Wow! I didn’t know that there are still lots of places I haven’t tried to go to.
Mom & Tina’s Bakery Cafe started as a hobby of a mom and daughter, I suppose the daughter’s name is Tina. They put up the cafe to share with us their home-cooked food & freshly baked pastries. The ambiance was pretty cool though. Their decors really exudes the holiday season. I was even wearing green so I kinda helped with the theme.
Here are what we ordered:
- Carousel (Php 80)
Carousel meaning I can have any drink if I finished 1 glass. I can’t have all flavors in 1 shot but I can ask for each flavor each time. If you wanna try out all their bottomless drinks in 1 sitting then this is for you. This includes Lemon Iced Tea, Red Iced Tea, Green Iced Tea & Blue Lemonade.
- Bottomless Red/Green/Lemon Iced Tea (Php 60)
Well, this is not carousel. So you order just one of those iced tea. For me though, I liked the green iced tea the best per glass is at Php 45.
- Smoked Salmon Sandwich (Php 275)
You can see the salmon in the sandwich. Looks yummy right? This is smoked salmon w/ lettuce, egg slices, capers, cream cheese & dill sauce. Served with one of the best potato chips I have ever eaten.
- Philly Cheesesteak (Php 255)
Grilled rib eye with melted cheese on a bun served with their delicious potato chips. I wish I could just order the potato chips.
- Half-Pound Salisbury Steak (Php 265)
This one is very good. The burger was juicy & very meaty. I enjoyed each and every bite of it. It’s grilled sirloin burger pattie served with vegetables, mashed potato and rice. There’s actually a quarter-pounder Salisbury steak (Php 195) but I felt it wouldn’t be enough for me. I was right! Half-pounder is just right for me. You should try this when you go to Mom & Tina’s Bakery Cafe.
- Mocha Frosticcino (Php 98)
- Toblerone Walnut Torte Cup (Php 90)
This one tasted fresh and good but I was too full already. I tried out just one scoop. There are other Torte Cups available in Mom & Tina’s like White Toblerone (Php 95), Mango (Php 85), Strawberry (Php 100) & Dark Toblerone (Php 95).
