Welcome to Manila Food Finds!

Eating - which we all love to do!

There are hundreds of food establishments up and about that serves fine meals. But what happens if you get tired of the same old taste you eat day in and day out?

Just like the rest of you, I'm looking for new and exciting places to eat and have some fun at the same time, which is why this blog was created - to share with you the adventures (and hassles) that a food lover has to endure in search of a good find.

We're not picky eaters and we'll try everything and anything as long as it's edible!

Godly Cupcakes by Sonja @ Serendra, Bonifacio Global City

Now let me warn you that the Sonja's Cupcakes featured here is a sinful indulgence and probably addictive. These little cupcakes are so good! That's the only word I can think of to describe it at this moment. Haha. Once you enter the place you'll notice the 60's theme which would remind you of your old Grandma's kitchen. The little pieces of decor like the old radio and weighing scale provided a classy touch to the already well designed interior.

The colorful little devils looks so nice arranged in files.

To wash off that pungent taste in my mouth from our dinner (click here for link) I had a strong chocolate dessert. April had a mocha flavored one.

Sonja's Choco Cream Pie is made up of crushed oreo as the crust, luscious chocolate cream as the filling and is topped with a blob of tasty whipped cream sprinkled with oreo bits. Does that sound great or what?

This cupcake made me reformat my thoughts about those dry, tough and breadlike cupcakes. The chocolate cream filling is so soft and is accented by the texture of the oreo crust. The whipped cream is sweet and is a dessert in itself!

April had the Mocha Motion with the basic cupcake as the base topped with mocha cream and sprinkled with choco bits. The slight bitterness from the choco bits acted as a buffer for the very sweet mocha cream. The cupcake base is soft, juicy and oh so delish. Who ever Sonja is, kudos to you!

Choco Cream Pie - 98
Mocha Motion - 58
Total - 156 (+ 12% VAT)

Manilafoodfinds' Scoreboard:

Juzam's thoughts:

Yes it's an amazing cupcake. It's the best cupcake I ever had. BUT I think it's overpriced. A little cupcake for 98 bucks? Still, with the best, you pay a premium.

Oh God. No! Honey, you probably havent had a real cupcake yet. Sonja's cupcakes are DRY and dense. Too much icing totally takes away from the cake. I do not understand the fuss about her cupcakes, but those are anything BUT good. I make my own, but I went around MM looking for good ones, and so far, the best ones I've tried are by this kid (I forgot her name). Anyway, you can find her at Rockwell every end of the month as the dessert people flock over there to exhibit their stuff. Hers is the pink table.. "The Sweet Life by...." is the name of her franchise I think. ;) Sonja's=UGH.

Was disappointed by Sonja's cupcakes for such a cute bakery their baked goods are no good. The cupcakes were dry and stale. The icing was too sweet I didn't even want to finish it. I thought it was the cupcake I chose which was the cookie monster, but tried my friends cupcakes and theirs were also too sweet and dry. The only thing going for this bakery is it's ambience. You're better off making your own cupcakes using a box of Duncan Hines cake mix it will taste better and cost less!
