The Malabon food trip is recently gaining prominence in mainstream and digital media so NATURALLY, I found myself in the area. My tummy buddy and I were hoping to get into that Malabon Tricycle Food Tour. It was sad that not all people from/in Malabon knows of it. They don’t even know the places we were talking about. So I guess it means it is in its early stage of becoming into a foodie haven. The tricycle tour started at 9 AM and needed to be coordinated with the city hall. Click here to book a tour with them. We went there on a holiday. And we were just really raring to eat. We had a DIY tour instead and it was fun!
After our lunch at Mommy’s Malabon Pride (check out the phlog here) and foiled attempt to join the actual Malabon Tricycle Food Tour, my tummy buddy and I decided to go get dessert and coffee.
Betsy’s Cake Center is the pioneering bakeshop in Malabon. Most occasions of Malabon and Caloocan residents are not complete without cakes from Betsy’s (read: Betchee’s).
We met Mommy Betsy there. She asked, “Are you guys from the food tour?” And we told her, “Nah.”
Then she went, “Are you guys students?” My travel buddy and I looked at each other said, “Yeah!” And laughed hard.
She was very warm to us and invited us to try the many pastries this bakeshop has to offer.
At the background, you heard some merriment. Someone was celebrating his/her birthday at the second floor of the bakeshop.
Betsy’s Cake Center’s recommended dessert is their version of broas. Unlike the traditional one, theirs are soft and not too sweet. It is still best partnered with coffee.
We also tried out Branzival: brazo de mercedes and sansrival all rolled into one!
What is a holiday without some good food, hot coffee and good conversation?
It was a pleasant afternoon here. Some of Mommy Betsy’s patrons were also warm and chatty like her. We even met one nice lady who was giving us the Facebook profile of his son. What do you know, either my tummy buddy or I have met our future mother-in-law. All thanks to Betsy’s Cake Center!
