What used to be a small stand at the aisles of Blue Wave Marquinton in Marikina has now grown into a cute cafe - still in Blue Wave!

I first got acquainted with the bakeshop PERFECT MOMENTS when my sister had her wedding cake made there last year. They made her really cute cupcakes with really cute bear designs with a really cute fondant couple on top of the main cake. Bravo, Perfect Moments!

I then got reacquainted with them when I bought half a dozen cupcakes from their then small stand. The cupcakes were really good, and what really caught my heart were the carrot cupcakes. I then decided to level up and bought a slice of their carrot cake. Lovely. What I adore about their carrot cake is that they are so generous in spreading over the frosting. Yum yum yum.

Yesterday, we checked out their cafe in Blue Wave since our ulam got spoiled (boo hoo) and I was craving for their carrot cakes again. We were even happier when we learned that they serve other dishes too, at such affordable prices!

 Pan-Grilled Liempo with Java Rice

 Tuna Kebab with Java Rice

Seafood pesto

All meals come with free iced tea. :)

And now, the best part of the meal: DESSERT!!!

 Almond Molten Cheesecake

 Red Velvet Cheesecake

My Uber Favorite CARROT CAKE!!!

I can't believe we spent only 509 pesos for all of these! True value for your money. :)

We took a picture with Chef Rai, too. We saw him walking around the cafe and we asked to have a picture with him. Since I'm the one handling the camera, Mom and Sis had the Kodak moment:

We immediately knew he was the chef because we saw this cute little cake:

And we all blurted out, THAT'S HIM!!! :D

Finally, a Mexican foodie spot in Marikina! Driving along Lilac street on our way to SKOW the other week, we saw this place and immediately included it on our list. Yesterday, we all agreed to have lunch at Burrito Brothers. (They are still on soft opening, as they just opened the place last May 25.)

Burrito Brothers accepts orders for pick up and take out. The dining area can accommodate 10 to 15 people. It is a self-service restaurant, so for orders and all your other needs, you can just approach them at the window.

Nice mini-landscape at the dining area - plus, their chairs are heavy and really sturdy!

 Beef and Cheese Nachos with an extra order of Jalapenos (70 PhP plus 25 PhP for an extra order of Jalapenos)
