Great Merienda place at 150 pesos for all these cookies. Along with some coffee, it makes for a wonderful afternoon (credits to my wife Anna for the photo)

After that sucky coffee from SO, our dessert cravings were still unsatisfied... I wasn't in the mood for ice cream and he didn't want churros or cupcakes... I finally suggested Chelsea and he agreed...

Chelsea was one of my favorite restaurant several years ago... We haven't been back in years, well just because of the staggering number of restaurants opening on a daily basis... I was happy to visit again that night, even if it's just for dessert.

We got there past 10pm and there weren't many diners left. We perused the menu, but we eventually headed over to the display case. The New York Cookie Dough Cheesecake looked the most appealing out of all the cakes displayed. Cheesecake for me, cookie dough for him-- so it targets both our tastes.

The cake was a good sized slice, with caramel drizzled at the bottom. The cheesecake was decent and the cookie dough was okay. Not a bad piece of cake... There is one big but though-- IT COSTS P310!!! With service charge, we paid almost P350!!!128561128561128561 I suddenly thought about Catabolic Cafe's Rainbow Cake, which was twice the size and half the price... And exponentially more enjoyable in taste and the way it looks... Sorry Chelsea, but this just wasn't worth the price we paid...

Service was okay, the servers seemed tired already because of the late hour... But they tried their best to be friendly.128515

The place is very cozy and open, perfect for breakfast or brunch, and the food was very satisfying..

We've had the Grilled Baby Calamari as an appetizer and it was already a meal in itself - baby squids on a bed of potato salad and greens.. We've had Creamy Truffled Mushroom & Double Smoked Bacon as well as the Napa Style Fried Chicken for the mains, way more than enough for 2 people..

It's a little bit pricey for me but I guess the food was worth it..

This bacon and truffle pasto was good but I think that the italianni's one with the prosciutto ham is better by a bit

Always a satisfying meal especially if you're looking for American style food. The pastrami melt is delicious!

Staff are very inattentive and seems poorly trained. Orders took forever to come out. When it did, all the orders were wrong. We ordered for the Truffle Pasta and the All Meat Pizza. What came out was Pasta that we think is Carbonara and Clam Chowder. I double checked with the server if the pasta indeed was the Truffle Pasta because it didn't look the part but she confirmed it was. So I told her instead to take the Clam Chowder since it wasn't included in our order, which she did.

So on to the pasta, the wifey and I were looking at it reluctantly because, well, it looks plain old Carbonara. So we tasted it and we both agreed it was Carbonara with not even a hint of truffle. We called another server and asked what kind of pasta were served to us and He answered: (you guessed right!) CARBONARA. We told him we didn't order Carbonara and to take it out, and so he did.

By now I was on observation mode. I noticed the dishes they took out from our table went to the kitchen for a few seconds then went out again straight to the other table. WOW! Remember we just tasted the Carbonara? (Saliva and all 128069) My Goodness! 128561 I am now very concerned about the state of our food.

So out comes our order of Truffle Pasta and All Meat Pizza. Truffle Pasta tasted like Carbonara with Truffle Oil. With little traces of mushrooms. At least now it tasted the part. The All Meat Pizza was chewy and hard to swallow. We were both disappointed. 128532128532

Even the check took a good 15minutes to come out. Even had to call the attention of 2 different servers to get it. 128545

I guess I should have believed the rants of the other looloo reviewers about their poor service. All this happened during off peak they were only serving 3 tables including ours. Sorry. NEVER again.

This is the Oven-Baked Warm Brownie S'mores (Php 295). One of the best brownie desserts I've had in while. It had a toasty brownie crunch at the top but a warm and super moist center. The mantecado ice cream was the best, too! I forgot to ask where they got it though.

I didn't expect it to be this huge (this one's got to be good for three) but when it was served, it kind of reminded me of the skillet brownie (?) from Refinery.

It takes a while to make this one (took 30 minutes when I got it) so that's something to consider for those atat to eat dessert.

As usual, those on the photo were delicious! Creme brûlée wasn't eggy or undercooked. The smore's wasn't too sweet or too rich, it was just right. Loved the burnt mallows too! 128513128513128513 they should throw in more graham crackers in there though. One piece is a little too short for that whole dish..

The only concern I have for this review is that I just wish, our server had inform us how huge these desserts were for TWO people!!! 128514128514128514

Dessert after having dinner at Zong.

I suggested that we have to try Chelsea's since i heard so much about their desserts/food and unique blend of healthy drinks.

We decide to seat outside since Serendra ambiance that night is cool and vibrant. I ordered NY cookie dough cheesecake and Strawberry mint lemonade. I am not impressed with the cheesecake. Not cheesy and creamy. It is dry and way expensive for its taste and serving size. My Lemonade is refreshing and good. My husband ordered the server's recommendation ChocoNut Valhrona and iced Coffee... Both are good. The only complain hubby has with Chelsea's is the Restroom size. He swears it is the smallest toilet in the world LOL.

REVISIT and FALL IN LOVE ALL OVER AGAIN- Chelsea's at Serendra has been a long-standing institution for warm food and generous servings. If you haven't paid a visit since they renovated you'll be pleasantly surprised that their upscale menu is a perfect mix of old crowd favorites and new twists on classics that will make you fall in love all over again!

FRENCH ONION SOUP- their rendition of this dish perfectly brings out the sweetness of the onions. Topped with a generous serving of rustic bread and melted cheese, it's a true crowd-pleaser

QUINOA SALAD (pictured)- one of their best-sellers and with good reason! A perfect example of a restaurant that adapts to current food tends! This colorful dish brightened up our table with perfect mixed greens, splashes of citrus and juicy thick-cut bacon Pieces! Slather the dressing liberally and you're in heaven (or a healthier version of it)

RUSTIC PIZZA - appreciated that we were allowed to split the pizza into All Meat and 4 Cheese because who can choose a favorite between those two??? The crust was light enough to have that handsome puffed and slightly charred edges. And every bite was a mouthful of toppings!

COOKIE DOUGH CHEESECAKE - Decadent, delicious and deviously addicting! This old favorite will always have a place in the Manila dining crowd's heart.

OVERALL while they adapted new dishes, the same quality and attention to taste and fresh ingredients is still there. Definitely worth a revisit (or three) ;)

Good portions and presentation. I got the Cesar salad which was clean, with bacon (surprisingly quality), and, like me, wasn't over dressed.

We ordered Creamy Truffled Mushroom & Double Smoked bacon pasta for 390++, and half slab Baby back ribs.. Their generous serving of creamy truffled pasta was soooo good! 128077

I didn't like that much their baby back ribs though cos it's not that tasty and soft for me. But overall, I liked this place. Very classy and nice place especially if you're on a date with your someone. 128521

Went here on a Friday night, the place wasn't full but the staffed seemed to be unnatentive. It took a while to get seated or to get someone's attention but thankfully the food came fast.

We ordered the truffled pasta with twice-smoked bacon and the pizza margherita. The pasta was good, truffle flavor not too overwhelming and the bacon chunks were packed with flavor. The pasta also had shavings of Parmesan that did well to balance the flavors. The pizza, however, was nothing special. It tasted like pizza you can get anywhere else.
