Yesterday was a great day. I went to the Powerplant Mall with my closest friends and watched Igor. The Boyfriend also managed to get his hands on those coveted Rockport leather shoes (with rubber soles!) and My Best Friend finally found THE dress she was to wear to a wedding she will be attending soon.
But… I’m not here to continue gushing over the pair of shoes and the dress that made our trip worth it. I’m here to tell you about the stuff that left all of us in a sugar high: The Ice Cream Bar.
After finding ourselves having an early dinner at Gram’s Diner (if you haven’t read my entry about this diner, click here), we decided to drop by The Ice Cream Bar to get desserts, which serve everything from FIC (Fruits in Ice Cream). They have sandwiches, soft serve yogurt, ice cream concoctions, milkshakes, etc. If you have been to Five Cows in TriNoMa, both places basically work around the same concept. Anyway, for FIC aficionados, The Ice Cream Bar is definitely the place for you.
Let’s start off with My Best Friend’s choice, shall we? She had the Choco Mallow Parfait, which costs Php200.
My high school buddy, Den, had the Grasshopper Mint Parfait, which consists of three flavors of ice cream: Mint, Cookies and Cream and Pistachio. This one costs Php210.
Next up is my choice: Coffee Crunch. Let’s see if I remember this right (feel free to correct me if I get it wrong): It consists of a scoop each of Coffee ice cream, Double Dutch and Butterscotch. Topped with chocolate chips, cornflakes and whipped cream. My parfait is the only one not topped with cherry. It costs Php195.
Lastly, The Boyfriend ended up ordering Peach Melba Parfait simply because My Best Friend beat him to ordering the Choco Mallow Parfait (hahaha!). This one’s a fruity parfait drizzled with strawberry syrup, topped with slices of peaches, whipped cream and a piece of cherry. The Peach Melba will cost you Php195.
The Ice Cream Bar’s cute interiors coupled with the amount of sugar we consumed that evening left us in good spirits. It was an excellent way to end a day spent with good company. 🙂
*** The Ice Cream Bar is located at the Joya Tower, along Joya Drive, Rockwell Center in Makati City. They’re open from 10AM to 10PM daily. I believe they’ve also opened a branch at The Fort.
