Ice Cream All You Can At Blissful Delights– The Best Summer Barkada Treat!
It’s a reunion of High School Buddies! me, these folks, and the one taking this photo
When In Manila, (sweat wiping) it’s summer time! Where is your barkada’s first stop this summer? If you haven’t decide yet, and you want something cool and affordable at the same time, my very first in the list of suggestions would be Blissful Delights Ice Cream Station!
And yes, you’ve seen this shop before. It was featured in Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho for having the Unli Ice Cream offer, and the 18-scoop Ice Cream challenge.
Upon watching that episode, I immediately group-messaged my long lost High School buddies for an Ice Cream treat at Blissful Delights. I’ve known these folks for so long that I’m very confident that a “No” answer is just a state of mind for this case. And that invitation just gave me very excited responses, with 100% confirmed attendance from them. See!
The 3 Blissful First Impressions
Situated in Sta. Cruz, Manila, our impressions upon hearing the shop’s name were the following:
1. They make their own Ice Cream
2. They ONLY serve Ice Cream
3. Prices are “can’t afford”!
So aside from the unli-ice cream experience, I guess those 3 things were also what my gang was there to find out!
The Scoopful of Ice Cream
We were really excited that time that we can’t keep ourselves from asking Mr. Hensson Chua, the owner of the said establishment with so many questions. He informed us without hesitation that they don’t produce their ice cream. It all came from Big Scoop, the shop’s only source of delight ever since they started last year. For those who haven’t heard about Big Scoop, it is also the source of Yellow Cab and Sofitel for their ice cream. Aside from that, Big Scoop ice cream is known for its compact, rich and creamy state. Pretty cool isn’t it?
I guess this one’s made clear. They have a partnership with a high-standard ice cream brand that they need not have to make their own ice cream. Case closed!
Meals Before Ice Cream
Maybe some people enjoy eating ice cream anytime they want but for me, I prefer it to be an after-meal. Good news then, ’cause they also serve lunch and merienda! Though an “Ice Cream Buffet” specialist, Blissful Delights’ menu includes rice meals, fried meals, and other snacks suitable for friends spending a special bonding moment. I guess it answers case 2 without any miss.
the not-just-your-ordinary fries and mini-turon!
The special fried rice that can complete an entire meal costs 99 Php for a single order. For a group of 6, like us, 2-3 servings is more than enough!
Since we’re all pleased with the serving and the taste of the special fried rice, our under no-rice-diet friend, Grace, even cheated just to experience what we’re talking about. Haha!
Savory Dory. This serving head starts a great lunch! Available at a convenient price of 139 Php per serving.
Buttered Chicken! Definitely a must order for a barkada meal! 6 pcs for only 149 Php!
I guess this one became our most favorite. The King David’s Pork Chop! This was intentionally served big so that more than 2 persons can share. The 6 of us really had enough of this. Very sulit at a price of 189 Php!
All of a sudden, we found ourselves busy enjoying every bite of Blissful Delights’ meal.
For more or less 900 Php, the gang had a very meaningful lunch. So for a group of 6, a complete meal can just cost around 150 Php per head!
A table filled with Ice Cream Creations can surely complete the essence of summer.
Stop imagining right there. Continue reading next page and I’ll show you what I’m talking about. Haha!
