Dessert Sampler by Max’s Restaurant

Whenever we dine at Max’s Restaurant and fancy some desserts but couldn’t decide what to order, we always resort to having their Dessert Sampler. That’s because we get to try small servings of 4 different desserts which are enough to satisfy our sweet cravings.

Max’s Dessert Sampler, less than Php200.00

Max’s Dessert Sampler includes the following mini sweet treats:

Leche Flan (crème caramel) – sweet, rich and creamy dessert made from egg yolks and milk, topped with sweet caramel syrup.

Ube Crème Decadence – eggless custard with ube halaya (purple yam), topped with ube cake crumbs. It’s light, smooth and creamy.

Buco Pandan – salad made from fresh buko strips, green gulaman, cooked tapioca, sugar and pandan (for aroma). It’s refreshing and not too sweet.

Cream Caramel Brownie Ala Mode – brownie topped with vanilla ice cream. This is our son’s favorite among the four mini desserts.

Have you tried Max’s Dessert Sampler, too? Which mini sweet treat do you like the most?

Round 2 at Azalea Restaurant

Because we wanted to maximize our weekend overnight getaway at One Tagaytay Place Hotel Suites, we didn’t bother leaving the hotel to find nearby restaurants. Instead, we just went down to the hotel lobby and headed straight to Azalea Restaurant to have dinner. It’s the same restaurant where we ordered our late lunch via room service. This time around, we tried one of their appetizers, the Suahe Spring Roll, and their Paksiw na Lechon.

Suahe Spring Roll, Php175.00

This Suahe Spring Roll was a hit with the three of us. It was served hot and crispy, and the suahetasted oh so good! It was sweet, succulent and fresh! We enjoyed dipping it in spiced vinegar.

Paksiw na Lechon, Php575.00

This Paksiw na Lechon looked more like Pork Humba to me because of its characteristic dark brown color and the pork part used in this Pinoy dish. It also tasted like Pork Humba. We enjoyed it nonetheless because the pork knuckles were tender and tasty, and if you noticed, the serving was huge!

Belgian Chocolate Eruption with Mokaflor Linea Blu Coffee, Php250.00

We also ordered dessert, but we opted to have it delivered to our room. Hubby was enticed to order Belgian Chocolate Eruption with Mokaflor Linea Blu Coffee because of Azalea’s Coffee Pairing promo. For only Php250.00, guests will have that dark and delicious but not overly sweet Belgian chocolate cake with unlimited Mokaflor Linea Blu Coffee from Florence, Italy plus 1 free Azalea coffee mug. Our son wanted that lovely ganache in the middle of the cake all to himself. Lol!

It was another delightful meal at Azalea Restaurant. Azalea’s sumptuous food offerings are actually one of the many reasons why we had a pleasant stay at One Tagaytay Place.

Lunch at Azalea Restaurant in One Tagaytay Place Hotel Suites

We were at One Tagaytay Place Hotel Suites last Friday and Saturday for a much needed rest and relaxation. We arrived there before 4pm and availed of room service for our late lunch from Azalea Restaurant downstairs. We chose one of their all-time favorites, One Tagaytay Bulalo, and their signature appetizer, Crispy Fried Tawilis.

One Tagaytay Bulalo, Php522.00

A trip to Tagaytay wouldn’t be complete without a bowl of traditional piping-hot Tagaytay bulalo. One Tagaytay Bulalo didn’t fail to satisfy our gastronomic cravings. The meat was fresh and tender, the soup was tasty, and there was a generous serving of both beef and veggies. Yummy!

Crispy Fried Tawilis, Php247.00

Another thing we’d always have whenever we visit Tagaytay is fried tawilis. True to its name, this Crispy Fried Tawilis is really crispy. Here, Sardinella Tawilis (or freshwater tawilis) was double-fried and then served with pickled vegetables. Hubby and I really enjoyed this and the combination of this fried fish dish with bulalo.

That was a really hearty lunch! I wonder what’s for dinner.
