Paninis, desserts and more at The Cake Club, BGC!

The Cake Club’s assortment of yummy food and pastries are no longer limited to the confines of Diamond Hotel nor is their popular Diamond Ensaymada or Supermoist Cake. You can now enjoy all their mouthwatering and sumptous food at the BGC branch wherein they also have a few new offerings in store as well. If you haven’t been there yet, the place is fairly easy to find. The Cake Club is beside some of the notable restaurants at the East Superblock area of 7th Avenue.20131015-093628.jpg

The Cake Club serves a variety of delicious Paninis.

Parma Ham and Arugula (Php485.00)20131015-092551.jpg

I can eat this anytime of the day, any day of the week, because Parma ham (or Prosciutto) is one of my favorite cured meat. Just look how beautifully sliced the Parma ham is! It goes well with the organic arugula that has a slightly peppery flavor. Colorful, too… making it even more enjoyable to eat!

Grilled Chicken and Pesto (Php400.00)20131015-111500.jpg

This juicy chicken breast with grilled zucchini and Emmental cheese, even without any kind of spread, can stand alone. It has a clean yet very flavorful taste. But if you want a little more character to your panini, add some pesto-mayo spread. This is recommendable.

Smoked Salmon (Php405.00)20131015-110919.jpg

My husband and I love salmon especially if it has that milky taste. I also love anything that is smoked. So when this dish was served, it was happy happy joy joy for me! Norwegian salmon + red onion + capers and cream cheese! What a fabulous sandwich panini.

Grilled Vegetables from Tagaytay (Php315.00)20131015-111802.jpg

These are organic vegetables dressed with cheese and home-made balsamic dressing. This’ll make anyone’s afternoon snack a tad more pleasant especially if paired with your favorite tea or coffee.

If you want to try some of their food, I suggest you order some of my favorites.

Pinoy Eggs Benedict20131017-002427.jpg

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that I can make the perfect soft boiled egg (Pardon the “yabang”! Heehee!). So, eating this particular dish conjures exclamations like, “OH.MY.GOOD.LORD.THIS.IS.SO.DELICIOUS!” The egg is obviously runny and I like that very much (well, second to a runny sunny side up actually!) filled with Beef Tapa that was really flavorful and tender on a soft Pan de Sal. Pinoy goodness!

Creamy Mushroom Soup20131017-002131.jpg

Love in a bowl! Creamy Mushroom Soup never fails to hit the spot!

Beef Lasagne20131017-092331.jpg

This one has “comfort food” written all over it. It has a simple, straighforward taste. Honest to goodness delicious food!

And of course The Cake Club’s ever famous Truffle Fries!20131017-110828.jpg

I am most confident that everybody will agree when I say that the Truffle Fries with Sea Salt Flakes sprinkled on top is one badass dish! I mean that in a very good way. Crispy, not greasy at all and worth all the calories! No further explanation is needed!

For that sweet ending, I make sure to at least follow the golden rule – “always leave room for dessert”. Note though, that as much as I love cake, I have no sweet tooth whatsoever. I don’t really indulge in sweet dishes. An ice cream scoop or a very small slice of cake is enough for me. But that all changed when I saw this beauty… Wild Pistachio Dome (Php250.00)20131017-110210.jpg20131017-110248.jpg

A sight to behold, huh? The taste is as good as it looks, too!

Extra Virgin Olive Oil Macaron (Php50.00)20131018-122904.jpg

I just had to ask Chef Decker how this was made. According to the very gracious chef, they used EVOO filling instead of the usual butter cream. When you bite into it, the EVOO taste is there but it doesn’t overpower the whole flavor. It was surprisingly good!

These Raspberry and Lemon Macarons are also delicious!20131017-111507.jpg
