Do you remember the fairy tale Hansel and Gretel? Seeing this dainty bakery and cafe called Vanilla Cupcake will remind you of that because everything here is eye-candy...from its delightfully appealing facade...
...to its cute interiors that will remind you of an old English tea house. The place may look too girly, but my boy blended perfectly with all the pastel colors surrounding him.
Seeing layers of colorful cupcakes will surely make anyone drool...and choosing one cupcake can be quite difficult too because of its wide selection of mouthwatering goodies.
Aside from these tempting cupcakes, the cafe also offers meals that are affordable and have huge servings too so light eaters can share one dish. My mom and son shared the Fish and Chips, which is worth less than 200. We just ordered 2 extra rice, which wasn't necessary anymore because the fries are quite filling already. It took a long time before we got our order...more than an hour (I even had to create a scene just to get prioritized). I think that they forgot all about our order and just reheated the fish because it was greasy and not freshly cooked.
My friend recommended the Garlic Beef Tapa, which was also worth less than 200. It was served with two eggs, garlic rice, and atchara. Two people can share this meal, but I was able to finish it all by myself...and was so full afterwards. It was really good...the meat was tender, the garlic rice was also delicious and two eggs are more than enough...so it was worth the price.
For dessert, we ordered the blueberry cheesecake cupcake, but since I got so full and a bit sleepy...I forgot to take a picture of it :( However, it was good but not that amazing.
Here's a copy of the menu of Vanilla Cupcake Bakery and Cafe (I got it from their Facebook page).
Despite the bad service, I'm going to go here again hoping that I will be lucky this time in getting a good waitress to attend to us because the girl last time didn't even said "sorry" or admit her mistake. She just tried to avoid us so another waitress took over and apologized for the delay in our order. Oh well, I guess not everything is nice at Vanilla Cupcake Bakery and Cafe.
