Never-ending Recess at Escuela Restaurant+Cafe
It’s back school for X and her foodie lovies! ^^,
Strictly speaking, Escuela is an ‘institution’ for curbing one’s hunger, and the curriculum is recess alllll the waaay. For this school day we attended, most of our classes were on how to stuff our sweet cravings. *nomnomnom
Staring at the blackboard of eats, my appetite was initially whetted by the campfire toast. (I do like to try different restaurants’ French toasts just to see if I’ll love it like I do my sister’s version.) The wait for my sister and her girl brood got me thinking, however, of the deep fried cookie bombs as well. *drooool
It was a meal that went straight to dessert for me and my niece with our toast encrusted with graham crumbs topped with choco ripple. Her’s had bananas and peanut butter in between while mine had melted marshmallows. Both dessert toasts were served with a squirt of whipped cream on the side … as if the sugar rush of all the other ingredients combined wasn’t enough. (It wasn’t. *hihi We used every bit of it. =b)
The cookie bombs were something else. How much did I love it? So much that the three spheres of it, the size of a P5 coin, left me wanting more. (There’s seven in one tray but I had to give my family members a taste. Begrudgingly, I tell you, begrudgingly. *snickers) A level up to deep fried desserts, this had cookie dough in it … and yes, a little aluminum bowl of whipped cream beside it again. It really was the bomb. (“,)
Eating all these sweets made us naturally reach for something to wash our mouths off . Mine was a sad glass of milk tea. Though it did have vanilla caramel flavors to it, it was pretty faint. (Lil’ Nick from New Girl comes to mind; chastising, over dramatically, the little girl and boy who sold him “some watered down nonsense” of a glass of lemonade. =)) ) Also, it was a reminder why I didn’t like pearls in my milk tea anymore. Oh, how they clumped together for dear life.
My sister’s small pot of peach tea saved the day, thoroughly cleansing my palate. As for Race’s and my niece’s beverages (tribe moka frappe and almond bomb), they’re another sugar high … and crash waiting to happen, but, boy were they cooling. *sip ahh
My sister got a chopping board of waffles for her early dinner/late afternoon snack. (I must say, they’ve got wonderful plating of the food at Escuela resto+cafe. \m/) Although it seems on the menu like the bananas and the peaches and the strawberry ripple were options for what one would want in a waffle, Escuela’s put everything on it … together with a wee bowl of honey and another dollop of whipped cream. Like eating a thick, fluffy crepe, she said, with the minute knitting of eyebrows because of the plastic wrap the waffles were laid on got in the way of her slicing. =D
Even though we mostly majored in sweets at the ‘escuela’, there are also salty/savory subjects at the restaurant and cafe. My other niece went for the sandwich lovingly named Ms. Minchin. It had a small beef patty sandwiched in a bun with pesto, arugula, cheese, cucumber, onion and chicharon. Though I only noticed the pesto from the little bite I took out of the burger, I made a mental note to get a whole burger that I could enjoy every flavor of to myself next time.
For Race, dinner wouldn’t be dinner if it didn’t have rice and so he ordered binagoongan. Granted, it tasted fine, he says but he would have liked it more if the meat was crispy. Also, it was a tiny helping that he could probably eat three plates more of.
All things considered, we had a great time attending this eating class. X marks Escuela for good food in Baguio. Here, the bell never rings for a formal lecture. It’s all the joys of recess, never-ending.
