Cocktail events are really not my thing. So after attending one, I really wanna go home, but my friends still want to have a little caffeine fix or anything light. We were along Jupiter St. then. I used to work in the area so I am familiar with the restaurants and I gave them the idea on what kind of food they will have if we eat in one of the lined-up restos.
I was surprised when we spotted one that I am not familiar with. It used to be a Persian grill I said. I thought there was a construction going on because it is still not painted inside and one of my friends thought it was a tailor shop because of the word “tuck”.
Moving closer, we saw the signs fish and chips, burgers, dine-in or take out and that is when we proved to ourselves that it is, indeed, a new discovery food shop.
Upon entering… WOW! What a concept! For me it was like a classroom (with the colorful chairs, the blackboard). Brings back the memories of my grade school days. You’ll not ask for the menu as it is written on the green board.
And what caught our attention?
The pieces of deep fried meat and strips of fried breadsticks really complement the tangy-sauced cabbage, pomelo, and carrots, etc. Sounds healthy but not so healthy, huh? But you should try it for yourself.
We thought it was calamansi with bagnet, hahaha. But when it reached our table, they are round brown pieces sprinkled with confectionary sugar. And on the first bite? It melts in my mouth with a little tangy flavor . I prefer it not dipped in white chocolate that accompanies it when served.
In the middle of our chit chat, the owners approached us and ask if the food is good and we definitely said yes. They offered us one of their best sellers, the Manila Cheesecake. While waiting for it, we found out that the owners are really hands on. The owner is a Filipina who conceptualized and helped in making the chairs and tables in the resto and the Singaporean guy owner is the head of the kitchen.
As you know, I’m not really a fan of cheesecakes until I found the triple decker of Del’s Kitchen. But that’s a different story because it’s sandwiched between two chocolate cakes. It’s still my favorite. But if you say just the cheesecake itself, well, well, well, Miss B’s Tuckshop’s Manila Cheesecake is my favorite. It’s not that so soft, not that creamy and not that cheesy. It’s really a fine mix of flavors for a cheesecake.
Other things I find cute inside the food shop:
