To all you foodies out there looking for some frozen goodness, Chibi Chibi Soft Serve might just satisfy your cravings. Inspired by the Koreans’ innovation of the Japanese Taiyaki or pancake sandwich, the shop is famous for serving ice cream in Taiyaki cones. Aside from these, Chibi Chibi Soft Serve also offers various desserts, all basking in the goodness of ice cream.
Here are some of their must trys:
5. Taiyaki Cones
Chibi Chibi Soft Serve offers six different combinations of Taiyaki cones with a price ranging from P80 – P130. Among these, Nutella smore (P130) is the best seller. The ice cream and chocolate duo may look too sweet, but the fish-shaped sandwich cone neutralizes the taste. Another recommended Taiyaki cone is the Verry Merry Strawberry (P130).
4. Caramel Popcorn Cup
The six combinations of ice cream in Taiyaki cones are also available in cups with a price range of P60 – P130. We got to try Caramel Popcorn (P120) and it was really sulit! The cup overflows with soft serve ice cream, sweet butter popcorn, and caramel syrup enough for more than one person. You can also pick your own toppings with the customized ice cream cup just as in the Taiyaki cones.
3. Ichigo Pink Float & Midori Apple Float
In Japanese, Ichigo can be translated to ‘strawberry’ while Midori stands for ‘green.’ These fruit-flavored drinks are served ice-cold with fresh strawberries or apple slices and soft-serve ice cream on top. Quench your thirst with these refreshing floats for only fifty pesos (P50) each.
2. Fried Oreo in Ice Cream
Skip diet day and indulge in fried Oreo goodness (P130)! This dessert is served in a Martini glass with 3 pieces of fried Oreos bathed with chocolate syrup and dipped in ice cream. It’s perfect for sharing especially with friends or a special someone!
1. Hana Ice Cream Pot
Among the ice cream desserts, this Hana Ice Cream Pot is my personal favorite. It’s soft-serve ice cream topped with cookie bits, strawberry, and candy. There’s also a sweet surprise of fudge brownie submerged in the ice cream. Overall, I love how the toppings and brownie mix together to produce a cookies-and-cream-like flavor with a cakey twist. Plus, the presentation of the pots is also perfect for your Instagram aesthetic. You can buy these Hana Ice Cream Pots in solo (P100) or for sharing (P160).
