We ate in a place called Vanilla Cupcake Bakery. Its charming facade enticed this mom to go inside and check on the food. The interiors all the more pushed me to choose a spot among the many empty chairs and ask for the menu. We spent about an hour and a half eating, exchanging a few jokes, and picture taking. The place is just too pretty not to be captured on my camera phone.
Vanilla Cupcake interior
The interiors remind me of my childhood playhouse where my porcelain dolls would have their tea party and everything around was just so whimsical.
Yup! Even the restroom is so Instagram-able!
Vanilla Cupcake Food
My two boys ordered SPAM EAT & MR. RIGHT (PhP 198 each). I thought it would be just the ordinary spam with rice and egg but Vanilla Cupcake Bakery served it with some pesto over the sliced tomatoes. The kids loved the dish so much that even the tomatoes weren’t spared.
My eldest had VCB SPECIAL TAPA (PhP 258) and it was one of the yummiest and most tender tapas I’ve ever tasted. My boy even asked for an extra rice.
Of course, our little man also had his own plate. We got him a bowl MY MR. MUSHROOM (PhP 168) and mashed some rice in it. Just like his big brothers, he was able to finish his bowl.
This mom saw some HONEY GLAZED TUYO (PhP 228) on the menu and asked for it. It was somehow spicy but still heavenly.
Vanilla Cupcake memories
I would have ordered some cupcakes for dessert but the boys were full already they begged not to bother. We went back to our hotel room full and happy. We chance upon this quaint diner while walking along Mother Ignacia looking for a decent place to have lunch. The boys and I were checked-in at La Breza Hotel for an overnight stay, a gift to the boys before classes resume. I promised myself to bring my mom to the Vanilla Cupcake Bakery and have some mother-daughter bonding over tea and cupcakes. She will surely love the place.
