Mom & Tina’s Bakery Cafe Treat

True to Gil’s promise to treat the group out on our next lakad, we went over at Mom & Tina’s Bakery Cafe located at Perea St. corner Dela Rosa St, Makati Monday night, just after office. It was Cherry who insisted the place though I was actually curious about it after reading Dencio’s entry on his blog.

We invited others to join us but at the end, Barrio Fiesta group din pala ang matutuloy hehe! ;) And since super traffic nun, we decided to walk our way down Perea St. coming from Rufino (Haha! Mejo malayo pa pala, just imagine the reactions of the boys! Lol!)

The cafe was as homey as this:
And the breads and pastries were as mouth-watering as these:

The place was cozy and really had that homey vibe. They have different dining sets as some  are with couches, others were of wooden chairs with foams while the rest were just plain wooden sets. We settled for the latter located at the far end corner. 

L-R: Richard, Marcus, Jek, Gil and Cherry
Cherry and Richard (Ahem!)
Order time- yey! (Ok, I admit…I knew already what to try hehe!) There are no good-for-groups orders here by the way so everyone was given the right to choose their own menu though everybody settled for pasta.

Each pasta dish comes with two breads as freebies-yey!)
My Chicken Spinach Lasagna-Php150 (Lasagna as one of their specialties)
 Gil, Jek and Cherry settled for Fettuccine Carbonara- Php160
 Marcus’ Fettuccine with Seafood and Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Sauce- Php225
 Richard’s Fettuccine all'Amatriciana- Php160

Drinks were notable too as their Green Iced Tea (Php60) is literally green while their Blue Lemonade (Php60) is well, blue! ;) No green mango shake available thus I had ripe mango smoothie (Php90) instead.

 My lasagna was creamy and meaty. I let Cherry and Gil tried it and they all agreed it was tastier than their Carbonara, which was ok but something I still won’t order the next time.

Marcus on the other hand was disappointed seeing only few bits of seafood on his pasta. Taste was ok but nothing to rave about as well.

Richard’s pasta’s name was promising! ;) Seems like Richard was satisfied with it anyway.

Then comes the most awaited part of the meal, the dessert! ;) What we sampled were:

 Mini Blueberry Cheesecake-Php135
Brazo de Mercedez-Php35/slice
Chocolate Fudge Cupcake-Php35/pc

The Blueberry Cheesecake was a delight! It just literally melts in your mouth-Yum! Downside was the brown core, which was crunchy and hard. Marcus bakes his own version of Blueberry Cheesecake better than this  one (but Bag of Beans’ Blueberry Cheesecake still ranks first in our list!) *Grin*

Mom & Tina is truly a dessert lovers’ haven! Though the pasta was not as spectacular as we expected them to be, we’ll surely come back for more… cakes and pastries speaking! ;) 

…Now I’m thinking of a walnut pie …and their famous Oreo Cheesecake! *Drool*

Hi Mishi, thanks for dropping by. :D I love the desserts at Mom & Tina's, but I haven't tried anything else. Pero parang ang sarap nung lasagna, ma-try ngang mag-lunch or dinner there sometime.

@pusang kalye,

Kiddin aside, the lasagna was the most palatable pasta dish on our table. Keri na yung excess cheeses na nagmelt! ;)
