It's been ages since I last posted a review. It's not fun when writer's block happens 128531

A spontaneous afternoon with my friend A, we ended up eating our hearts out at UP Town. It's always nice to try something new or introduce A to try something that I've already tried. 9786

I knew Manila Creamery was just around the mall. The last time I went here I couldn't find it, good thing A knows where to find it 🙃 I'm so happy to find it and know that this place is just one tricycle away from home 🤣 which would mean a craving is just one ride away.

Overwhelmed with the interesting kakanin flavors and favorites of every Pinoy, A took a long time to decide which to get, whereas I readily knew what to get - Mindanao Milk Gelato 127848 - I like the small milk nibbles that's inside the gelato. Plus the texture is just nice and it wasn't too sweet. A ended up getting the Salted Egg Cheesecake, which tasted like salt egg! 128077🏻

I might get a second visit soon and try the Mangga't Suman and Biko flavor and try their milkshakes as well 128523

Got the chance to go back to Manila Creamery after our visit at Shakeaway. Thanks to Ruth S and Ony!

First I tried their Mindanao Milk gelato and OMG it's LOVE! Rich milk flavor with just the right amount of sweetness. It's insane! Then I tried their Mannga't Suman and I must say that it hasn't changed a bit - still super good!

Jairus d got a double scoop - Salted Egg Cheesecake with extra dose of the TDF salted egg syrup! You have yo try this flavor! Their Ube Langka was a winner too! The gelato had a Jackfruit base - so so reminiscent of my Grand Ma's sweetened jackfruit, and I absolutely loved it. Unlike most that would make Ube as the gelato/ice cream itself, Manila Creamery used Ube Pastillas chunks instead and added these to the Langka gelato. Not too sweet and not cloying at all!

Then my pick - Brazo de Leche Gelato Shake! Oh my 100841008410084 it's my favorite gelato shake ever! If you are a sweet tooth, this will be a hit. Imagine this - a thick and creamy Ricotta Orange Gelato blended with real Brazo de Mercedes, dulce de leche and ginger which was a brilliant addition because it helped in making the shake less cloying. The cup was then swirled with more Dulce De Leche (see 3rd pic) and the entire thing was topped with torched cashew, Pandan whipped cream and a slice of Brazo de Mercedes! My gosh! This calorie packed Gelato Shake is beyond delicious! It's super! The layers of flavors went well together! It helped that the gelato used was Ricotta Orange because the subtle citrusy kick cuts through all the sweetness too. Highly recommended!

Ruth S tried their Matcha Taho Gelato Shake and it was still the same yumminess as the first time I tried it.

PSA: if you like waffle cones, you can get extra for only 10Php. Their cones are like barquillos and are also thick! South branch soon please?!?

Thank you @FoodSocietyPH and the boyfriend Anthony N for the GCs!!! 128154

There are already a lot of gelato/ice cream places in the Metro but Manila Creamery is that one place you shouldn't miss. They have a lot of interesting, unique and very Pinoy flavors to choose from. My favorite ice cream place is Farmacy but MC is a pretty good place to satisfy your cravings too! If only this one's near me, I would visit this place as much as I can!!!! Why you have to be so far!!! 128557128557

My favorites are the Davao Chocolate and Pistachio. The Manga't Suman's pretty good too. What I like most about their ice cream is that it's not too sweet, you can really taste the flavor, and that it doesn't melt too fast unlike the ones from Farmacy. 128077🏼

They also have milkshakes available here. I got to try the Matcha Milkshake and it was 128154128154128154. I like taho and matcha is 128154, combine them together and you get one really happy ruth! 128518128525 It may sound weird but it's not!! It worked and I enjoyed every thing about it!! Plus, it's not too sweet as well! 128076🏼

PS: if you're like me who likes just the waffle cone, get an extra for just 10 pesos. Their waffle cones are really good! 128077🏼

4 stars because too far from me! 128523 hahaha arte! 128518

Manila Creamery had a pop up booth a few months back in Makati and got to try their Tinutong na Bigas! It was great with that toasted giniling after taste. Who knew it translated well in ice cream form. Absolute delight, highly recommended for old timers. Will definitely remind them of the good ol' times of yesteryears. Highly recommended.

Davao Creamery was delish! Not the best dark chocolate gelato I've had, but pretty close.

Also, props to the witty cookies and cream flavor description :))

Two things i like about manila creamery: their cereal milk and mangga at suman gelato!

Had the cereal milk during my last visit. The gelato is creamy and sweet, with bits of cereal (and cookies?) mixed into it. Reminds me of breakfast!

The mangga and suman is my favourite! The coconut milk gelato with bits of mango and suman is a treat everytime!

The last time I visited Manila Creamery, they were just a stall near the UP Town Cinema. This is my first time visiting their new store! And wow, they now have so many new flavors!

I planned on getting just one flavor -- the mangga't suman but I got a second flavor because I have no control. The new flavors that I've tried are leche flan, vanilla caramel (not its real name), and salted caramel. They're all good but I got the salted caramel for my second scoop because caramel is 128149.

I'll definitely come back to try their milkshakes!

I've been a very big fan of Manila Creamery ever since they did pop up stores in Glorietta and UP Town. I think I was one of the people most excited when they announced that they were setting up a permanent store in UP Town.

The Mangga't Suman is my absolute favorite but sadly, it wasn't available today. So I went for my next favorite, the Blueberry Cheesecake! What I love most about this flavor is the graham crumbs that have been incorporated into the gelato. It gives it a textural element to an otherwise creamy mixture. I like how I can taste both the blueberry and cheesecake flavors. They don't overpower each other at all!

My cousin got the Leche Flan gelato. She's not a big fan of sweets so I was wondering if she'll regret her decision. But she said she found it really good! :)

Manila Creamery has been a fixture in many weekend markets, so I was able to try their gelatos previously. These are made so well, achieving a fine texture despite the many ingredients they include in the mix. I absolutely enjoyed their black sesame, kinder bueno, and blueberry cheesecake flavors. I like how the gelato makes a statement on your palate without going overboard. They achieve a great balance of flavors all the while showing restraint on the sweetness.

During this visit, I chose the mangga't suman. I liked the homage to classic Filipino pairing. I thought the "suman" portion was texurally interesting, somewhat similar to sago. I do wish they bring in more flavors, just to make choosing even more difficult than it already is...128523

Btw, it kind of melts pretty quickly or is that just me?

This is something close to the heart. Hey guys, this is gelato, not ice cream. I have to hashtag my IG with gelato instead of ice cream.

Thanks ti Midz S for sharing her blessings here at the manila creamery. This is their first store. Away now from pop up markets (should this now explain why they were not around in the last gourmand market?)

Gelato flavors that we tried:
128204128525 cereal @120Php
128204128525 turon @120php
128204128525pistachio @120Php
128204128525mangga't suman @120php
128204 pili nuts @120php

I liked all gelato flavors. Really unique especially the turon. I was not able to appreciate the pili nuts flavor cause the taste was not lasting. It does taste good at first but I'm a little confused at the end.

Gelato shakes (oh yeah!)
128204 ube salted egg milkshake @180php
Ube gelato, salted egg caramel, a piece of puto, and a small piece of sapin sapin. Firstly, that sapin sapin truly tastes panis. It tastes a little sour. We told the server but they told us that it's new. Anyway, we just set it aside. I did not taste the salted egg caramel taste. Overall it was okay and it tasted like halo halo without all the halo. Lol.

128204128525 matcha taho @180php
I died of bitterness (ROTFL) at the first taste. It was so matcha pure. Until we discovered the milkshake is so much better if mixed, taking it with the taho. I did finish the milkshake.

I actually would buy this one over shakeaway milkshakes. And yeah, i'd still label this as ice cream. 128513
Salute to MC for truly living out the prominent words mounted on their wall "made the manila way"128588🏼

I WON P1,000 GC FROM MANILA CREAMERY AND FOOD SOCIETY!!!

I invited my fellow foodie reviewers to enjoy these GCs with me. We arranged to meet at the gelato place on a Sunday afternoon.

We had a hard time choosing from the wide variety of flavors available! But we ended up trying out the following:

127859 Salted Egg Cheesecake
Cheesecake gelato with salted egg caramel and graham crackers.

127820 Turon
Saba and langka gelato with caramelized lumpia wrapper.

127792Roasted Milk and Pili
Roasted milk gelato with pili nuts.

127868 Cereal Milk
Cereal milk gelato with cornflake cookies

128155Mangga & Suman
Sticky rice gelato with mangoes and Visayan latik.

128154Pistachio
Typical pistachio gelato that you can get from good gelato shops. The taste of the pistachio was legit 128513

Okay, if you'll notice, I didn't elaborate on the taste of each of the flavors because THEY WERE ALL SO GOOD. My favorites were their turon and their roasted milk and pili because these are uniquely Filipino. Plus, the taste of the ingredients were really highlighted. My least favorite was their mangga and suman. It was also delicious but the other flavors stood out more. Well, because the other flavors tasted new to me.

128156Ube Salted Egg Shake P180
I loved this. I never knew that a sweet and salty milkshake will taste this great! It's also topped with puto and sapin-sapin, so it's kinda a food and drink in one 128523 The only flaw in this drink was that the sapin-sapin tasted old and sour. But no probs, it didn't ruin the taste of the drink anyway.

127861Matcha Taho Shake P180
I loved this as well! At first I loved the ube shake more, since we tried to share this shake by getting spoons of it instead of sipping it, and also because I found the matcha too strong and bitter. However, upon stirring and sipping the drink, everything changed. This drink is so heavenly! The taho went well with the matcha, since the taho was able to balance the bitterness of the matcha.

The place has a few seats inside and outside the store for you to enjoy your desserts, if you don't want to bring them with you while shopping.

I wasn't able to try the other flavors, but just seeing them on the display already made me want to try them out as well. I have a huge feeling that these will also taste amazingly, so it kinda doesn't matter which one I pick next, does it? So 'til the next time, Manila Creamery! 128522

Thanks to my friends EJ B, Jayson J, Norman Lester T for sharing these sweet cups of goodness with me 128522

Again, thank you for the GCs FOOD SOCIETY! 128536 Will arrange a food crawl with you guys soon!

Manila Creamery is one of my top gelato picks and I've been stalking them in weekend markets and Glorietta for the longest time. I love the creativity of the owners when it comes to their flavors. They're so experimental and adventurous! They do not settle for just the usual flavors. Mangga't Suman, Mango Pomelo, Bacio, Guinumis, Tutong na Kanin are some of the unusual flavors that they definitely nailed! They have this magical wand that captures and locks in the flavors - from the real deal food to a gelato form, it's amazing how they transform them into thick, creamy gelato! They also know how to put texture into heir gelato so you will not be left with just the plain ice cream.

Manila Creamery has been camping in malls as a pop-up store and I have been wishing for them to open a full-fledged store somewhere! I mean, it's about time and I believe they already have a good army of followers. That's why the news of their UP Town Center store was such music to my ears! Can't be happier but I also wished that they'll open up a branch in the South area soon!

Their UP Town Center Cafe is located in the cinema area of the new building. It's very easy to locate if you're coming from the parking lot. As soon as you enter the mall, you'll be able to spot it. Well lit, open space and an open kitchen or work area, their gelato selection will greet you right away!

Got the chance to sample some of their creations through an invite that was extended to us by Reich T, day before they officially opened to the public. Manila Creamery x foodfanaticph, yay! We were greeted by the owners - Jason and Paolo and Jason told us about what they offer - gelato scoops, gelato shakes and coffee. It was a simple menu that they plan to expand as they progress.

There was one flavor I was eyeing during the visit - Salted Egg Cheesecake Gelato! Salted egg is everywhere and I was very curious how they will play with it. It was the first thing I tried and I was blown away! As usual, the gelato base was thick, smooth and creamy with a nice tangy cheesecake note. It was mixed with graham crumbs giving it a good texture and drizzled with salted egg sauce. OMG! The salted egg sauce is the bomb! It's thick and sweet, notes of caramel and a good salted egg flavor that was filled with umami goodness. I highly recommend to ask them to ADD SOME MORE of the salted egg sauce for a better gastronomic experience.

According to Jason, they only use organic duck eggs and use the yolk without any extenders. I can attest to that because the flavor of the salted egg yolk was really there - locked in and went well with the caramel.

Since I tagged the daughters along, I also asked for a cup of their Kinder Bueno gelato. Of course momma tried it first! It came in highly recommended for the kids by the staff. It indeed tasted like the chocolate itself! Sweet, chocolatey with the signature hazelnut flavor of Kinder Bueno! The little girls loved this too.

Then we moved on to try their gelato shakes. First was the Ube Salted Egg. The cup came in full with not just the gelato shake but with some toppings too! First was the snow white whipped cream that was generously drizzled with salted egg sauce. Second was the slice of Sapin-Sapin and third was the generous smear of Ube Halaya.

One sip was all I needed to LOVE this gelato shake! It was thick and rich, full of purple yam goodness with that salted egg after taste. It's sweet and sinful but definitely worth every calorie. The Sapin-Sapin was equally good too. According to Jason, they sourced it out somewhere in Blumentritt and he personally likes it.

We also tried their Matcha Taho Gelato Shake. But of course, Matcha-LOVE! Wouldn't pass the chance to try this. Topped with jellies and two sticks of Matcha Pocky, who would have thought that Matcha and Taho can go so well together?!? One sip, ahhhh... genius. It had just the right Matcha kick - not too bitter but not too subtle.

What blew me away was the taho - silky and smooth, it had the consistency of that being sold on the streets! I asked Jason what other ingredients they added there because there was this flavor that I can't distinguish. Jason admitted that they added malted Horlicks into this concoction to enhance the flavors of the key ingredients.

We also tried their Matcha Latte (hot) and Latik Latte (Iced). The Matcha Latte was good - just the right proportion of Matcha and milk, bitter and grassy. The Latik Latte was refreshing with hints of coconut and a sweet end note coming from the latik.

Other flavors that I tried and I would highly recommend are the following:

| Thai Milk Tea tasted like the real thing! The bitter tea and the rich milk, nice!

| Davao Chocolate - if you want that dark, bitter and a little sour profile of chocolate coming from a proudly Pinoy brand - Malagos Dark Chocolate, you should go for this.

| Truffle Mascarpone with just the right white truffle flavor plus a salty contrast from the Himalayan Pink Salt that it's sprinkled with.

| Mangga't Suman - all time best seller which really tasted like the real thing and even had suman bits!

| Cereal and Milk - reminiscent of what's left when eating cereals, the soggy cornflakes and the tasty milk, this gelato perfectly captures that!

Great job Manila Creamery! Looking forward to more unique flavors from you!!

Gelato milkshake afternoon with my girlfriends!

Before hitting another busy week, we kiss the weekend with this sweet treat. We usually have coffee after our hearty meals. It is so timely, that I showed them some pics of this awesome place, and it happened to be their opening today. Its the Manila Creamery. Great! its buy one get one on their gelato today.

My 3 friends got their Matcha Taho, while I had Ube Salted Egg 128521 #teamubefortoday

Ube + Salted Egg is surprisingly delicious. Its also kinda heavy as it is topped by "puto" . On the first sip, there's an obvious ube taste, as you go along, salted egg syrup will surprise you. The whip cream balances the sweetness. This is one unique pair of dessert that I highly recommend.

Pro: foodies will enjoy this place. Concept of this place, offers surprises on your tastebuds. Everything is new! I recall on reading and asking, masarap kaya?! With a bit of excitement.

Cons: We waited for more than 30 mins. For our orders. Hmmm I was enjoying the convo with friends yet, just noticed that it took so long. There are even customers that were served first. Buti busog ako! Hehe one of the owners, apologizes & give us some gift cards for freebie on next visit.
Its appreciated and will give them a chance... planning for Turon Gelato Milkshake next time 128522

I was one of the selected few who got dibs on Manila Creamery before they officially open their doors to the public.  I wasn't expecting that I'd get an invite,  i am merely a consumer who happens to love their frozen treats. I stumbled upon them by accident one day.  I was walking around Glorietta and was trying to avoid the pesky Citi sales person when i saw them.  Got a scoop of Mangga at Suman and the rest was history.  I make it a point to swing by Gourmand and UPTC every chance i get.

Digressions aside. 

MNL Creamery is located at the new wing of UPTC,  third floor near the cinema.  It is hard to miss as their spot has the brightest facade,  even the signage is eye-catching.  We were greeted by one of the owners,  Jason Go.  He briefly discussed how they came up with their one of a kind flavors,  where they source the ingredients and what made them pick UPTC as their first store location. 

Their flagship store offers a wide array of gelato flavors - the crowd favorite (Mangga at Suman),  the classics (Pistachio)  and the innovative ones (Turon gelato perhaps?).  Apart from their frozen treats,  they also offer handcrafted beverage such as coffee and gelatoshakes.

These are some of the flavors we tried.   And before i forget,  they use actual dessert spoons for patrons for taste tests.  This is perfect as the disposable ones are not eco-friendly. 

These are some of the gelato variants we tried:

¶ Salted Egg Cheesecake.   I intentionally placed this on top as this is the best gelato flavor in my book.  Apart from the taste,  i have the utmost respect for the brilliant minds who churned this flavor.  The amount of expertise and restraint to come up with the flavor combination is admirable.  For those who hasn't read my previous review,  here goes. 

They use a cheesecake gelato base mixed with a lovely concoction of organic salted egg yolk and caramel and some crushed grahams. 

¶ Thai Milk Tea.   This is milk tea in gelato form.  They even got the color figured out,  this variants sports a light brown-ish hue.  I taste Jasmine Tea with a milky flavor.

¶ Turon.  They made the quintessential Pinoy merienda into a decadent gelato flavor.  Man,  this is one of those flavors that would make you wonder... how did they make this taste exactly like turon?

¶ Ube Langka.  This tastes like Christmas for some reason.  This flavor is unbelievably light and not overly sweet. 

¶ Truffle Mascarpone.  I didn't try this as i was to preoccupied withe the Turon flavor.  Clarissa P and Ruth D said it was good.   Please note that Ruth is not a fan of truffle. 

¶ Roasted Milk and Pili.  Another innovative flavor combination.  I cant fully describe how this flavor tastes like,  all i know is that my tastebuds gave their nod of approval.

Milkshakes

¶ Matcha Taho.  I was skeptical when i saw this on their menu.  Don't get  me wrong,  i like matcha and taho but i ain't sure what it would taste like when you mix em together.   All my scepticism went out the window after the first sip.  The flavor combination is heavenly. 

¶ Ube Salted Egg.   This is hands down the best milkshake I've ever had in my brief existence in the Milky Way galaxy.  If i were to compare this to a poem,  this is Blake x Dickinson x Keats x Frost x Neruda x Ackerman.  All of the great poets that ever lived combined into one.  The ube flavor is not too heavy and not too sweet.  You get to taste the salted egg flavor towards the end.  Talk about a sweet beginning and a wonderful ending.

Coffee

¶ Matcha Latte.  I am a matcha purist and my cup didn't disappoint.  This has the perfect proportions of matcha and milk. 

¶ Latik Latte.  Coffee infused with Visayan latik.  This is another innovative handcrafted beverage courtesy of the brilliant minds of MNL Creamery.  Creamy coffee with a subtle flavor from latik.

MNL Creamery is not just another gelato shop.  What makes them stand out is their innovative approach on familiar Pinoy flavors.   Their flavors are one of a kind and can definitely compete in the international market.

Thank you, Jason and Paolo for having us.

BOGO! Buy One Gelato, get One only today at Manila Creamery, UP Town. Today is their official opening according to one of the owners with whom I spoke earlier today.

I've had the pleasure of trying their Gelato before at the Gourmand Market in BGC or at another market, but to experience their newly opened flagship store is really something else.

A total of sixteen flavors were on display. A few of the flavors were Filipino inspired, like the Pili Nut and Mangga at Suman. Nice. Reminds me of my schoolmate Ian Carandang's Sebastian artisanal gelato.

Anyway we got to sample some flavors and picked the following:

Salted Egg Cheesecake - the base is the cheesecake ice cream and the salted egg Caramel is the syrup on top. OMG. As my friend Clarissa P aptly suggested, ask for more salted egg sauce. This is hands down one of the best salted egg dessert interpretations I've ever had. Try this with the salted egg sauce if you're gonna sample it. Otherwise, take my word for it that you have to try this baby, Graham Crackers and all to build on the authentic cheesecake flavor. 5/5

Thai Milk Tea - pretty good. Captures the Thai Milk Tea taste. Could stand to be more brewed tea taste or less sweet but this would now be more subjective than a major criticism. A pretty good 4/5.

Something Pili Nut - this was just okay for me. 3/5

Cereal Milk - popular in some gelato places, this captures the taste of the milk remaining after you've eaten the frosted flakes. Good stuff! 4/5

P100 for small gelato and P120 for small special gelato. To each his own so try the other flavors so you pick what you want. But dayyyyyyyyymmmm, that salted egg cheesecake is something else.

Their Gelato Milkshakes are also interesting. My first pic is a must try for everyone...

UBE SALTED EGG MILKSHAKE:
Earth shattering may not aptly describe this bad boy. Ube jam, ube and salted caramel flavored gelato mixture and that aforementioned salted egg caramel sauce topped whipped cream. There's an ube puto and kakanin added on the side of the whipped cream, too. Though one of the owners recommended we drink and nibble the food on the side, we eventually enjoyed the drink better once we mixed the whipped cream and salted caramel sauce, then we enjoyed the salted egg taste with the ube aftertaste. At P180 this is one expensive drink but the quality and taste are there plus other milkshakes of restos I've tried actually could be pricier than this. Rating 5/5

Latik Latte - P150. Hot or cold, this drink has creaminess, slight sweetness to its Latik aftertaste. Better for me we tried it hot. 4/5

I bumped into Sandra Y here today, too! Good to see you!

And thanks Reich T for the invite yesterday (though I had personal matters to attend to) and introducing or reacquainting me with this tiangge / Gourmand Market gem's first store. I had a bit of a time to find it as I haven't been here since the 2nd tower opened last year. Wow, UP Town is quite a long and zig-zagging lifestyle mall now. So if you're looking for Manila Creamery just look for the cinemas.

Full disclosure: We are really displeased that our order took so long for them to serve. And since we are seated in front of the work station, we were able to observe them. People were standing, sort of waiting, doing nothing, when our order (4 shakes) hasn't been prepared yet after 15mins of waiting already. I asked and followed up for my order, only then did they realize their delay. Served my order right away but my friends' were still late for 25mins since we ordered. They did apologize for the delay but I hope they learned from it.

I got the matcha taho premium gelato shake. Looks nice. Matcha taste is good but too sweet for me. I think it's the taho syrup. Shake is really thick, more like a dessert than a drink. For P180, it's worth it but not worth the long wait. As I write this, it's been 30mins since my friends ordered and they are still waiting for their shake. Other people behind us got their order first. Really frustrating. I would have given 4 stars if their service was superb. Indeed, good service goes a long way for me.
