Mangga't Suman gelato. Never disappoints.

I guess mangoes are in season since the ones in this cup are sweet. The rice gives it a chewy kind of bite. It's served with latik, which was thick and sweet, and a wafer slice

After our sumptuous lunch at Mama Lou's, we walked around a bit, then went to Manila Creamery for dessert. I've seen so many posts on Manila Creamery here in looloo, and I have been wanting to try out their Matcha Taho Gelato Shake for a while now! 128525 I won't rate each item we ordered separately, as we all LOVED what we ordered! 128076128156

I LOVED IT. I had a lot of matcha drinks this week, and I can say that this is one for the books. 128154 It's different from my usual matcha drink, having incorporated taho in it. But like most of the reviews I've read, I must agree that IT WORKS! It does not only "work", but it has provided a whole new dimension to an otherwise usual matcha drink. The taho is a bit firmer that the ones manong sell in the streets, but it still provided a good texture to the drink. The drink was topped with some matcha jelly, which were a bit bland. But not to worry, as the matcha drink itself has enough personality which makes the matcha lover in me giddy with delight. 128525 They also serve it with two green tea Pocky sticks, for an extra crunch.

✔ MANGGA AT SUMAN GELATO (Php 100 - Single Scoop) for my sister
The gelato had a creamy base with suman's texture and taste, and swirls of sweet mangoes that gave this flavor an oomph. To complete your suman eating experience, they drizzle a latik syrup on top of the scoop of gelato. My sister loved every spoonful of this Filipino dessert inspired gelato. 128076

✔ RICOTTA ORANGE (Php 100 - Single Scoop) for my mom
I was surprised that my mom chose this, because she usually goes for the chocolate flavored desserts. I guess she's tired of that flavor already. 128586 Anyway, I was not able to taste it, but according to my sister, at first, you'll taste the creaminess of the gelato coupled with saltiness from the ricotta cheese. Once it reaches your throat, the kick of citrus flavor from the orange will then be revealed. That's depth of flavor right there! 127846 My mom finished it in around 5 minutes, so it must be good. 128586

The service was very good, and I think two of the staff present are the owners. 128584 They were super courteous and nice! They have a very limited seating capacity though, as they only have 3 tables of 4 seats each, and a bar area for around 5 people. Add to that, there were diners a while ago who wouldn't leave their seats even if they are already done eating and they saw people waiting to be seated. 128550 It wasn't the fault of the restaurant, though. I think it's basic courtesy to give your seat to customers who just arrived, right? 128557 Despite this, I am still super glad that we came here for dessert. Another must try dessert for matcha lovers! 128525128154

Manila Creamery has always been one of those brands known for great, unusual gelato flavors. I've been having cups of their cold treats at various food markets and recently, I got a chance to visit their spot at UP Town!

The staff were super nice and polite! I got to sample nearly all of the flavors (both regular and premium) they had on offer that day before settling on Vanilla Almond + Mangga't Suman for 180 pesos. Each scoop was creamy and full, the flavors rising to the top. No skimping of ingredients here! I also enjoyed their Salted Egg Cheesecake!

Aside from their gelato scoops, you could also have gelato shakes, coffee-based drinks, etc.

Always a wonderful experience! 128588

I wasn't a big fan of their Cereal Killer shake huhu I found it super sweet 128557 killer talaga! Haha

But maybe their scoops are better as is. I'll just have to come back. The interior design was really nice tho and their gelato display very eye-catching. 128076

Compared to ice cream, gelato is low in fat, has more milk and contains less air. Try gelato made the Manila way. In photo: Coffee crunch 128076

It has been a while, Manila Creamery. Yes, i missed you and your awesome gelato. I haven't had a decent cup of gelato in a while. A scoop of Ube Langka is in order.

Man! This is insanely good! I taste ube, i taste langka, i taste excellence! That is what you get on every cup of gelato from Manila Creamery.

I want more!!!!

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 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.

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!
