Best Cakes and Pastries at Mother’s Cake House

Second day of Pampanga Food Tour and it was such a nice treat to begin the day at Mother’s Cake House. Equipped with a camera and an empty stomach, I know I will enjoy Day 2 of Pampanga Food Tour and Mother’s was definitely a great start.

Mother’s Cake House is a store that sells home made desserts and pastries. It’s really low in price but with high quality desserts. Pochollo Flores, the young entrepreneur who owned Mother’s greeted us warmly when we arrived for breakfast on the second day of the tour. Mother’s is located at Balibago,Angeles infront of Savers  Mall.

Even if the store mostly offer pastries and cakes, they also have other snacks like palabok, tacos (which was soooooo daaamn good) among others!

CROQUEMBOUCHE

I got a lot of favorites here. I love their Beehive. It’s not too sweet. It’s just the right amount of sweetness I like. Mango Cinnamon and Cream Puffs were also my bet! Too sad I wasn’t able to taste Croquembouche because no one dared to break the presentation of those little tiny looking balls dripping with vanilla syrup.

What I love the most though was their Tacos. I think it’s the yummiest tacos I’ve ever tasted so far. It’s so generous with cheese and overpowering with flavor!

Experience Spain with Dos Mestizos

Second restaurant which is included in the Pampanga Food Tour 2015 was DOS MESTIZOS. It was sooooo sooooo far from K CAFÉ. Kidding!!! It was actually just 10 steps away from K CAFÉ. Also located at Nepo Quad in Angeles. Nepo Quad is a building which has rows of different restaurants and DOS MESTIZOS is one of them.

After having our tummy full at K CAFÉ that morning, I still have ample of space on my tummy for the next restaurant. I don’t know if my hopes were high because I was expecting the same service as K CAFÉ’s. No WIFI at the resto which made me sad and the owner wasn’t at the place to greet us. The one-in-charge whose name I didn’t know (because she didn’t introduced herself or maybe I wasn’t just listening when she gave her name). Anyway, the interior of the resto has the Spanish vibe in it because it was really a Spanish restaurant in the first place. The interior was nice, however, I think the place was rather small and can fit only a few number of people inside the resto. Good thing they maximize their front space outside.

We actually didn’t waited much. I think the food was already prepared at the kitchen when we arrived. They just have to reheat it and serve it to us. First impression, the vibe was a little off. I think it’s because of the lighting inside the store. It was a bit dark and there are drapings in some seats which made the space a lot smaller.

Honestly I had a hard time remembering all the names of the food they served to us. Why? No WIFI available at the resto so we weren’t able to update our post with details about their food. Let me just post the dishes and I’ll name a few that I can remember.

CHURROS, CROQUETTAS DE QUEZO and PASTEL RUSO

I really didn’t remember anything much on the menu. What we actually do in events is ask for the name of the product or anything that was being reviewed then type it and post on social media whenever there are available wifi. My phone’s signal was also slow and I wasn’t able to established connection on my mobile data. Really sad! Good thing we had a little cheat sheet though that’s why I was able to provide you with the name of the food on the menu.

Resto NameDOS MESTIZOS

Address: Plaridel St. Nepo Quad, Angeles City

Type of Food: Spanish

WIFI: NONE 😦

My whole DOS MESTIZOS experience was so-so. It’s a not so good and not so bad kind of feel. I don’t know if I just lack appreciation for the food because I am not into Spanish recipes. I like their Churros though. It’s just a little oily. 😦

Sadly, sadly, I need to go and wasn’t able to attend the last stop of the Food Tour on the first day because I have some wedding matters to attend to that day. ANGELES FRIED CHICKEN was the last on the list for Day 1 and I wasn’t able to taste their dishes. Me and hubby will just visit some other day instead. I will make sure of that!
