I really did enjoy their Brownie only 85PHP. Here’s what we had during our visit. A must try: The very famous Chocolate Lamington. – The soft and fluffy chocolate sponge cake rolled in grated coconut. Perfect pair for your brewed coffee. They now have Perfect Parings which I think is such a brilliant idea so they may get to showcase their cakes and breads paired with brewed coffee. Bagel and Coffee,

Ka Tunying’s Cafe – so far, the best Pancit I’ve had

This is it.  The best Pancit. I’ve always been a fan of Pancit whether Bihon, Canton or Sotanghon.  I though Chinese makes the best Pancit there is but I was wrong until I had one at Ka Tunying’s Cafe in Timog.
