Sonjas Cupcake @ Serendra!

Like what I’ve always said, my sister always recommends something for us to try. It’s not actually part of the plan because we will just go to S&R that time to buy groceries and some goodies. And then she told me that I should try Sonja’s Cupcake (Sonya's Cupcake) and be mesmerized with its taste. Exaggerated as I thought when she describes it but out of curiosity, I’ve tried it. It’s just a walking distance from S&R, located in Serendra, their only branch in the Philippines.

``Their store is a dolly-house inspired.

*Here's a glimpse of their Store*
``Open Kitchen at the back of the cashier

*Here's their menu*

*Here are some samples of their cupcake*
``Peppermint Patty (72 pesos)
``Mocha Motion (72 pesos)
``Choco cream pie (110 pesos)
``Valrhona Flourless Chocolate Cupcake (105 pesos)
``Peanut Butter Nutella (95 pesos)
``Lemon Drop (68 pesos)
``Chocolate Surprise (65 pesos)
``Vanilla Sunshine (65 pesos)
``Berry Delight Strawberry Cheesecake (115 pesos)
``Berries and Cream (105 pesos)
``Flourless Chocolate (110 pesos)
``Elvis (115 pesos)
``PB&J (78 pesos)
``Mocha Motion (72 pesos)
``Red Velvet (78 pesos)
``Valrhona Milk Choco-Hazelnut Tart (88 pesos)
``Bunny Hugger Carrot Cupcake(80 pesos)
``Fudge Brownie (115 pesos)
``First Box (I'm sorry for the missing cupcakes, I just can't help it. tihih!)
``Red Velvet - One of their best sellers. The cream cheese is so light and creamy while the bread itself is really moist. 
``Choco cream pie - One of their bestsellers also. MYGAAAAHD! I go crazy over this one! I'm such a buttercream girl and I went gaga when I ate this. I just can' get over when the time I finished eating this one. I kept on talking and talking about this even hours had passed already. 
``Peanut Butter Nutella - I'm surprised when I tasted this one. I thought the peanut butter and Nutella flavor will clash and over power each other, but I was wrong, the flavors just perfectly blended having this creamy texture. 
``Flourless Chocolate Cake - I will warn you, this cannot be eaten easily. Why? The moment that you'll take a bite with this one, it will collapse because of the out of this world softness of the cupcake with oozing chocolate flavor inside.  
``2nd box
``Strawberry Pistachio - Wasn't able to try this because someone eat it already. hahah. But just by looking at the picture, you know it's really delish right? :)
``Vanilla Sunshine- It has different colors but they just have the same taste. Kids will surely love it. Sweet frosting with soft bread  is simple yet adorable. 
``Lemon Drop - What I least like above all. I don't say that it's not delicious. In fact, you can taste the tangy lemon-y flavor every bite. I just find the Lemon flavor too strong and even my nephew doesn't want to eat it because it's really sour. I guess Lemon and Bread don't compliment with each other.
``Chocolate Surprise -Based on my tastebuds, the frosting of this one is so chocolate-y goodness. Though there's nothing special with this one. 
``Choco-Hazelnut tart - It has this rich and gooey dark chocolate filling, on a soft tart shell. Also delicious.
``Choco Cream Pie - I'm sorry but I'm afraid I can't find the right word to describe this little angel over here. This is the best cupcake I've ever had in my entire life (so far
``Here's a closer look (I'm actually craving while doing this entry). If you're a buttercream girl, or simply loves icing, you'll go crazy with this one. You'll enjoy every bite you will take, it will melt in your mouth. Crumbs of cookie bed as its base, filled with heaven sent belgian chocolate with light, thick and creamy icing on top! whew!
`Mocha Motion - Just like their Chocolate surprise only that it has the mocha flavor taste.
``Elvis - One of their bestsellers. My second favorite. The base is soft chocolate crust topped with whip cream and chunks of Reeses's Chocolate drizzled with chocolate syrup and caramelized banana.

*tetadventurer's review*
I know based of my review above, it's obvious that is highly recommendable. I really can't help it. This store is just wonderful. Filled with delicious treats that everyone we'll surely love. Come to think of it, it's really pricey for 100++ pesos just for a cupcake, but I definitely say that it's all worth it. Especially that Choco Cream Pie above. Heaven! But just one tip for everyone, if you really want to eat your desired cupcakes, make sure you hold your reservation. There's one point that I wanted to taste everything and when I went there, it's out of stock. So make sure you'll do. You can call their hotline @ 915 29 36

Seafood Lovin' at Claw Daddy's

I can't remember why we went to Serendra all the way from Rizal aside from the reason that it's our monthsary. But what I can remember is that the Hungry Bears were hungry that time. So before headin' to office, we decided to eat first. Bubba Gump is what I have on my mind. But sadly, it has one branch located only in Glorietta so we settled in
Claw Daddy's.
The place is really jam packed when we arrived. So we were assisted to the other side of the room which is New Orleans that has the same operator I guess. 
``We headed to this place. Very quiet and comfortable. 2 projectors were also provided for entertainment purposes. During that time it was basketball so, blaaaah! :D
``I dunno why I took this picture. haha

*So here's there menu*

``Steaks - Aldrin wanted to order a steak, but I told him that it's not advisable since they specialized in Crabs. So better go for their winning dishes. :)
``Claw Daddy's Boiling Crabs - One of their best sellers.
``Pizza and Pasta
``You will be given a chance to choose what size of the crab you're going to purchase, in our case we had their giant. The size of the crab corresponds to a particular price, the heavier the crab, the heavier it is on the pocket ;)
``Foods for kiddies | Desserts
``I will give a high five for this complimentary bread. Very hot when they served this to us. 
``We had their giant crab. It took so long before we had our final decision. We even asked the server on their bestseller but I wasn't impressed when she told me that it's the Butter Ginger Crab. So we opted to choose Szechuan Crab. 
``Crab cooked in sweet and spicy Szechuan sauce. (2000 ++ pesos) FTW! I'm giving you my word, this is SUPERB :)
``Seafood Ciopinno Pasta (395 pesos
This one is their Solo. But believe me, it's already enough to satisfy 2 persons. We weren't able to eat this also. We just tasted it and ask the server to wrap it for us. The giant crab is really heavy to our tummies.But this one is good also. The pasta and seafood itself were cooked to perfection.
``It's really huge :)
``Soda to cleanse to palate atleast
``HAHAHA! It's very satisfying up to the last drop. :)
``The hungry bears are very much happy! :)
