SLICE: A Slice of the Sweet Life in BHS Central

Being a dessert person, I just couldn't pass up the chance of trying out the nearly one year-old SLICE at Bonifacio High Street Central. So when a voucher for P500-worth of food and drinks at the dessert cafe became available at Ensogo, I just knew I have to grab the opportunity even if it means traveling all the way from the north to The Fort.
Slice Interior

Located beside Jamba Juice in the restaurant filled-BHS Central, SLICE is a warm and inviting modern American bakery-inspired dessert shop and cafe owned by Senator Pia Cayetano. And while it's only been less than a year since SLICE welcomed its first guests, it has already been popular to dessert lovers and Bonifacio High Street goers.

After entering the cafe, of course, it was the array of muffins and cupcakes that caught our attention. And while there was an enticing selection of all-day breakfast items, appetizers and salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes and rice meals, the beau and I didn't get sidetracked. We went straight to order what we're here for -- the desserts and drinks.

Double Choco Yema P240

For my choice of cake, I had the Double Choco Yema (P240) which is a slice of moist chocolate cake with layers of yema and decadent chocolate ganache. Dubbed as "Death by Choco Yema," this plate truly exudes a beautiful combination of chocolate and yema that even as a non-yema fan (Sorry, but I just find yema generally too sweet for my palate), I was satisfied with every forkful. So yema fans, I'm sure you'll love this!

Rocky Smores Cupcake P60

I also got a piece of the Rocky Smores Cupcake (P60) which was moist, chocolatey and had lovely bits of chocolate pieces, marshmallows and nuts. And while this was not a hundred percent satisfactory, it was a nice partner to my hot cup of a hearty drink.

Pinoy ChocNut P130

My drink for the evening was the Pinoy ChocNut (P130) -- a hot cup of chocolate and peanut butter-infused coffee served with a small bowl of granola sampler. Honestly, I'm not a super big fan of chocnut back in the day. However, this drink brought a feeling of warmth and coziness upon first sip. The coffee flavor's there, but was enveloped with the comforting taste of chocnut making it the perfect drink when you're under the weather.

Turtle Pie P220

The beau on the other hand, got the Turtle Pie (P220) -- a beautiful slice of praline pecan-infused chocolate mousse atop a lovely Oreo crust. To be honest, I was surprised to see how thin this slice of dessert was. However, upon our first forkful, both the beau and I agreed that this is way better than my Double Choco Yema Cake. The chocolate mousse layer in this treat was just so smooth and silky and had the perfect sweetness.

Belgian Dark Choco P150

For the beau's choice of beverage, he had the Belgian Dark Choco (P150) which I believe is made from melted Belgian dark chocolates. A single sip was all I need as this drink is very thick, rich and super chocolatey like a choco dip. The beau seemed to have enjoyed it, although he generally prefers deeper, more bitter chocolate beverages.

THE VERDICT

Our trip to SLICE definitely confirmed that this cafe is popular for a reason. Their desserts are exceptional, and we really dig their drinks! I think the prices of the cakes were a little steep considering the size. Service on the other hand, was friendly and very courteous. However, it can still be improved as they seemed to have forgotten to serve the beau's beverage. (They served it fast right after we reminded them though.) Overall, we're pretty happy with our first SLICE experience, and I'm sure this won't be the last.

Taste - 4/5
Ambiance - 4/5
Service - 3.5/5
Price - 3/5
Overall Value - 4/5

    1. Haha.. True! :D We actually savored our cakes for about an hour. They were good though, so I think we'll have to wait for another deal para mas sulit :)

  2. This has long been in my wishlist but the hefty pricing has taken me aback. But, I'll surely try it next time but I'll go for the non-chocolate options though.

  9. I've tried the cupcake version of the choco yema. I guess, they both taste the same. I liked it...best paired with coffee! The cupcake will cost you a fraction of the cake's price. Cakes are sooooo expensive there! 2 slices of cake in Slice can buy you a whole cake in Becky's Kitchen. But it's still worth a try. :)
