Larcy's Cupcakery Café

Cupcakes have definitely took the Philippines by storm. In the past few years, there have been a boom of cupcake café restaurants all over the country. Almost every restaurants have started offering cupcakes from their dessert menu which have surely delighted each and everyone's sweet tooth.

Working in The Fort area of Taguig City has given me an edge into trying different kinds of desserts. I must say, Cupcakes by Sonja's paved way for me to incessantly consume cupcakes whenever and wherever. I am just a girl who is trying to live her life to the fullest. And I mean it by eating as much cupcakes as I can. Hello, who would say no to cupcakes? No one!

 It is known to us that the northern part of Metro Manila presents us with more variety of food rather than in the South so it has been quite a dilemma for us living in the South on where to buy heavenly tasting cupcakes. Unless of course, we make an effort to at least visit The Fort, which is only 20 minutes from our home but then, we'll have to pay an exorbitant amount for the toll fee. So it has been our routine to stock up on cupcakes by Friday to devour on weekends.

God may have heard the quandary that the South people have been experiencing that He has answered our plea through establishing a new cupcakery café last December 8, 2012: The Larcy's Cupcakery Café owned by Larcy and Gatchi Gatchalian.

Le Petit Chéri

Le Petit Chéri is a French café-restaurant that gives every person the same cozy atmosphere that one gets while in France. It is located in the Molito Lifestyle Complex across Alabang Town Center. The restaurant is owned by Edna and Henry Cureg whose passion for the French cuisine has paved way for them to open this place.

As I enter the restaurant, I immediately noticed its interior. For a small restaurant, it's rare to see a staircase as beautiful as what can be seen in Le Petit ChériThe tables on the first floor are perfectly aligned which gives a good view from the top. What makes Le Petit Chéri different from other French restaurants is its interior design. Underneath the stairscase, you can see their Paris memorabilia which are now for sale! The walls look like art galleries that perfectly resemble those in France. Another good thing about this restaurant is that it has two mini library collection. Isn't it an adept combination of a hang-out place? Enjoying the French atmosphere through eating and reading books at the same time.
