I first learned about SLICE from social media. Aside from it being a project of Sen. Pia Cayetano, what really piqued my interest was the choco yema cupcake that has been getting a lot of raves on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. I’m so happy to share that I finally got to try it firsthand.
I was literally in a rush so I just dropped by the branch and randomly chose treats –
1) chocolate chip deep dish cookie (chewy cookie in disguise) 2) choco monkey PB (yummy 3-in-1 combo of chocolate, banana, and peanut butter) 3) pineapple carrot surprise (creamy surprise inside!) 4) rocky road s’mores and 5) choco yema cupcake
I loved everything I took home but the choco yema cupcake was undoubtedly the best from the bunch. Never mind that the yema isn’t exactly the typical eggyolk-and-milk concoction (like the one in brazo de mercedes) I expected it to be because Slice’s version definitely lived up to the hype. Their kind of yema (the caramel/dulce de leche type) perfectly combined with the super moist chocolate cupcake base.
I have yet to try other popular flavors like the red velvet, nuts about bananas, citrus burst, and choco madness but the yummy ones I have tried are enough reasons for a return visit. 🙂
SLICE is located at Bonifacio High Street Central (beside Jamba Juice) Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila
Must-try list for my next visit: Slice’s take on the champorado (I see almonds and muesli!), classic granola, and double choco yema cake (hope it’s double the goodness of the regular one!)
