Forget Me Not Café

After a humongous lunch or a heavy snack, we all want to have a splash of tea or coffee. At gano’n din kami nila bestie Emil and vff Heidi, though, ako gusto ko cake and fruit shake. So, dumeretso kami sa Forget Me Not Café na nasa tawiran lang ng Barneys Burger kung saan kami nag-dinner. Isang fab café ang Forget Me Not na nasa Lilac, Marikina din at tunay nga namang nakakabighani ang itsura nito sa loob. Madami kang makikitang paintings na nakasabit sa mga pader, pati ang menu books nila nakasabit sa pader creating the words “Forget Me Not”. How creative, ‘di ba? Three years na daw ang café na ito sabi ng isa nilang server na aking nakapanayam. Meron daw silang three floors, the first two floors are for guests at ang third floor naman daw ay ang production area nila kung saan nila ginagawa ang mga napakasarap na cakes nila.

Sa counter naman nila naka-display ang mga cake offerings nila. Grabe, na-miss ko agad ang pagiging pastry cook ko no’ng makita ko ang mga selection nila. Ang bestsellers nila ay ang Mallow, Rainbow at Devil’s Cake. At siyempre iba iba kami ng in-order para matikman namin ang varieties. I ordered Lava cake, si bestie Emil ay Dome, at si vff Heidi naman ay Mallow. At siyempre strawberry milkshake sa ‘kin at steamed milk ang sa kanila for our bevs.

Time to eat! ‘Yung Mallow ay isang moist chocolate cake na may chocolate ganache and small chocolate Kisses sa filling and on top of it ay roasted marshmallows—smores. It was so moist and chewy. And it will compliment kung hot tea ang partner niya. ‘Yung Dome naman ay para ding Mallow ang crust ng cake, moist chocolate cake din, ang difference lang ay meron itong dalawang frostings, white icing sa taas at chocolate icing sa baba. At ‘yung sa ‘kin na Lava cake ay may sorpresang dala. It was wonderful at sight, moist chocolate cake served with vanilla ice cream on top. At kapag sinimulan mo itong kainin, sa gitna ay may oozing chocolate filling, para ngang lava. I love its surprise! Tapos ‘yung strawberry milkshake ko was super creamy yet the presence of the strawberries still lingered. For me, perfect combo ang Lava cake at strawberry milkshake.

Sugar rush! I know, it was all too chocolate-y for the three of us kaya naman ang hyper naming tatlo na kung ano ano na lang ang pinagusapan katulad ng under-the-table, “What’s keeping you?”, at ang mahiwagang fingers. Haha! I don’t want to get into further details basta that night was filled with chocolates, fun stories and laughter. It was a night to remember at Forget Me Not.

Maliban sa masarap na cakes at bevs nila sa Forget Me Not ay meron din silang offerings na tiyak ay aming lalantakan sa muli naming pagbabalik sa café na ito.
