After our hearty lunch at Primero Casa Filipino and a soothing foot spa at Beijing Foot Spa (more about this soon), my friend Jeng and I went to UP Town Center for some desserts in Cafe Shibuya.
It was a full house when we arrived, but we're glad we scored a table near the counter. While seriously deliberating on which dessert toasts we'll be ordering, we indulged with the Ghirardelli Frappes. Yes, you read that right: Ghirardelli. :P
Jeng had the Below Zero Chocolate Frappe (Php 155) while I had the Triple Dark Chocolate Frappe (Php 165).

Jeng's drink is an impressive mix of milky and chocolatey while my drink has a strong chocolate flavor. Love it!
So we can try as much as we can, we ordered baby sizes for the dessert toasts. Please note that all dessert toasts have regular sizes as well.
We tried the All American PB & J (Php 195, baby), Mango Caramel (Php 185, baby) and Nutella (Php 195, baby).

Two things that we have observed with the toasts are its pillowy texture and the buttery taste that goes well with any of the toppings. I would love to eat the toast without any syrup or ice cream on top. It was that delicious.
The All American PB & J is peanut butter, strawberry jelly topped with vanilla ice cream and banana slices on the side. It didn't excite me that much, maybe because the strawberry jelly wasn't as sweet as I expected.
However, I loved the Mango Caramel and (my favorite spread) Nutella. I liked that they used sweet ripe mangoes for the Mango Caramel. And Nutella is Nutella, I'm a huge fan. :)
I was blown away with their amazing desserts and the Ghirardelli frappe that I would love to go back for more, and hopefully try their pasta dishes and savory toasts the next time.
