I chose their Signature Cheesecake and it has a fresh approach, with just the right hint of tartness.

Spicy Hungarian Sandwich  – Spicy Hungarian Sausage, Honey Mustard Mayo and Lettuce – PHP220

 

 

Basics yes, but both pasta have a creamy, soft flavour to them. The Spicy Hungarian was well spiced and smokey, really good that I scarfed it down to quickly.  You know what, this is even a perfect match for a beer.

Afters Frappe | Affogato | Afters Signature Cheesecake

 

What do you get when you marry gelato and espresso? The affogato! An affogato (coming from the Italian word, affogare- meaning to drown) is a coffee-based beverage. It usually takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso. Get a cup, fill it with gelato and drown it with good quality espresso.

A zen experience it is. What a potent flavourful cup of goodness.

These two were doing the cha-cha in my mouth with the right balance it delivered.

A beautiful thing. It really is.

Highly recommend you dig into their affogato. The affogato will give sheer delight to someone who is not even fond of coffee. It gave me that nice caffeine punch!  No burnt taste, just with the right acidity and creaminess in a glass.

If you prefer to eat the Gelato alone, they have a decent selection. Their Gelato was smooth and creamy, but without being overly rich or heavy on the palate. Gelato makes a perfect finish to any meal, and their flavours lean on the bolder side, making you wanna crave for more.

After’s Frappe

An indulgent creation by Vincent Fideles. You can see the sparkle in his eyes when he talks about this, as mentioned he usually get his creations from the countries he visited. Think of this cup as something that will wash all your weariness after a whole day’s work. I was surprised when I asked him if there was any cinnamon in it and he actually said yes. Thing is, you cannot actually tell once you’ve tasted it as the smell of cinnamon was truly faint.
