Sorry, the title was all Jared’s fault. 😛 The yummy rainbow cake pictured below is from Catabolic Cafe in Malingap St., near Maginhawa, QC. His first comment? “Unicorn barf!” ~insert virtual photo of me shaking my head while internally rofl’ing~
I wouldn’t call my site a food blog. However, since we love food, I thought I’d feature some of the stuff we’ve tried and liked. Hopefully this one’s a start.
The cake is actually a red velvet. 😀 They sell it for Php150/slice. It looks super magical! The frosting part is so full of sprinkles and rich with a meringue-like coating 🙂
I liked the cake overall. The serving was huge and VERY filling. The colorful sprinkles transported us right back to our childhood — who wouldn’t like to have that nostalgic feeling?
While the frosting was good and candy-like tasty, I thought the inner fluff (?) tasted a bit too buttery. I’m no expert at commenting on the qualities of food, so I’ll leave it to Jared to tell you what he thought of it. Otherwise, I’d just choose among the following comments: a) I love it, b) I like it, c) sure, I’ll eat it, or d) NAH, not having a bite of that.
“I would have preferred this cake to have more frosting since it sort of lacked taste in the middle. You’d always end up craving the outer part (the one with sprinkles). The middle part tastes like normal cake, only a bit sweeter. If this rainbow cake was intended for those with a sweet tooth who don’t mind running the risk of getting diabetes when they’re older (his words LOL), they could’ve done a better job to bring out the juvenile flavor that your inner child will crave” 😀
Word right there. LOL.
Catabolic Cafe is located at 22 Malingap St., Teacher’s Village, Quezon City.
As a study or work place…
I’d say it’s a good choice, if you want to be able to concentrate on your work. It doesn’t become over-saturated with high-school or college kids who want to get caffeinated and chat. They have a comfy couch near the entrance, outside tables to enjoy a smoke, and small tables to drink, eat, and work. The tables are a comfortable height to place your laptop — and they also have wall sockets per table. The ambience is nice and quiet, sort of like your typical hole-in-the-wall spot. A little dim, though. You’ll love it if you enjoy serene mood lighting. However, if you’re like me and enjoy being bathed in sunlight, you may want to move closer to the door, or pick another place to work altogether.
Another note to introverts who don’t like cafes — this may not be the place for you. Sure, it isn’t noisy, but if you want extreme quiet, it still doesn’t come close. Think restaurant-y atmosphere — the shuffling of footsteps, people chatting, the blenders humming every now and then. And music being played non-stop. Jared wasn’t a big fan, hehe. I’m glad he did come along, though. 🙂
