The Grain Restaurant's Cakes: A Treat for the Sweet Tooth

Upon invitation of Keene Albert Tan, I was able to sample the signature cakes at The Grain Restaurant. I have a  massive sweet tooth and I was just so happy to be invited.

I sure hoped my blood glucose levels were not too high that time as we were served a huge variety of dessert items, mostly cakes from their signature collection. It was truly a treat for our sweet tooth, and maybe just too much of it we realized after.

Here are the items served to us:

Kiwi Cake

We started off with the kiwi cake, which was topped by real kiwi fruit slices and sprinkled with kiwi seeds all over. We thought this was a kind of a weird cake idea. Sure enough it took a little time for me to get accustomed to that acquired taste from the restaurant's resident chief baker and pastry chef.

Coffee Caramel Cake

This one's a really little too sweet for us. It's a good thing this came served with a pair of chocolate balls that was more chocolaty bitter than chocolaty sweet and it kind of balanced off the sweetness. The brewed coffee helped too.

Pastillas Cake

The pastillas cake is The Grain Restaurant's signature cake. If you love pastillas, that soft milk candy, you will love this cake too! PhP 118 for a slice. Each slice also comes with a cherry on top as well.

Mango Cheesecake

My personal favorite is the mango cheesecake with a real ball of mango on top of it and a hint of mango in the cheesecake itself.

Finally, we were served with The Grain Restaurant's huge, cheesy, and fluffy ensaymada. The good thing about this ensaymada though is that it only sells for PhP 48 a piece. A good bargain.
