Entering the glass doors of Mom and Tina’s Bakery Café and you’ll be transported to a wonderland of baked goods beckoning you to partake of them amid an old country setting.
Large couches with low hanging chandeliers and pretty decor give the impression of being invited to someone’s home. Since we came here during the Christmas season, the store was decorated very nicely with snowman and Santa figures aplenty as well as special tabletop flower arrangements
We’ve been here a few times but it’s still so hard to order since we seem to want to have a lot of stuff from the menu.
Quezo De Bola Spread (P160). Irene ordered this to start our meal, it was served with two big pieces of freshly baked bread. The spread is cold but still spread easily on the warm bread. I could really taste the sharp Quezo de bola taste in the spread that looked like cheese pimineto.
Mango Kani Salad (P240 – full). Strips of real Kani (the ones that flake off into strips) and mango on top of a bed of lettuce with Japanese mayo dressing. I like the taste of this salad, it was very refreshing but the dressing was nothing special, just Japanese mayo from the squeeze bottle. I’ve had better versions of this salad elsewhere.
Lamb Chops (P375). SIL’s order, I was not able to taste it but according to her it was good. From what I could see, it was not the best of cuts but still any dish is judged by the execution.
Beef Stew (P195). I loved stew and this beef stew really gave my taste buds a nice hit. Chunky potatoes, carrots and beef simmered for a while on the stove giving it that home cooked goodness. This is one of those dishes Irene doesn’t cook so I order it when I can. After having this, it will be hard ordering something else here.
Chicken Barbeque (P155) G’s order, served with Java rice and a side salad. It looked really good when I was taking this pic and it really was, evidenced by G’s clean plate.
Baked Chicken Macaroni(P120). Irene’s ordered this a few times already and this time was no different. Served with two more big pieces of bread to add to the carbo laden concoction, aren’t most of the good stuff.
Blue Lemonade (P70/bottomless). Irene’s drink of choice. An interestingly colored drink, more cocktail than lemonade because of the bluish hue.
Now on to the grand finale, dessert, you will find it hard to resist their displays of sugary goodness that starts to tempt you as you enter the doors.
Mini Sansrival (P50). A curious looking shape for the traditional dessert but the chewy texture was a big plus for me and Irene.
French Apple Tart (P110). Crumbly topping with chunks of apple inside, still a little crunchy and not soggy. Still a little cold in the middle when it was served but good nonetheless.
Mandarin Orange Cupcake (P40). I’m a sucker for citrus flavored desserts, and this one was tasty and pretty too.
Its always a treat to visit Mom and Tina’s with their reasonably priced meals as well as the chance to partake of dessert after the meal. So head on over to sample their wonderful creations.
