Kiss the Cook Cafe (again!)

We had post-Sunday mass dinner in Kiss the Cook along Maginhawa Street.

Lemongrass cooler for Php 80. Native to India, and mostly used as a herb in Asian cuisine, lemongrass caused apoptosis (programmed cell death) in cancer cells. Panacea in a jar? In any case, this version is a bit sweet for me. I'm used to a more gingery taste.

Php 165 Malagos Blush with dried cranberries, kiwi and oranges with pomegranate dressing

Php 245 Pistachio-crusted Chicken on garlic mashed potatoes and side salad

Truffette (dark chocolate gelato nugget topped with cherries and baliley's cream) for Php 180. We loved this serving! The rainy weather pulled down our mood, but the taste of this perked us all up so much that we had two orders of this. We always go for dark chocolate because it has the richest source of antioxidants, but in this case whatever tinge was cancelled out by the cream (milk)

Kahlua Creme Brulee (rich creamy custard topped with burnt sugar) for Php 120. I'm used to warm creme brulee so I can't make a proper assessment on this.

Php 120 Chocolate Lava Cake (topped with the choice of Pistachio or Vanilla Yoghurt - but we were insistent diners who requested to have dark chocolate froyo instead. Thank you for having it our way!)
