You can taste the baileys. Not very sweet. It's like gelato that doesn't melt. Likeeeey!

Staffs were accommodating and attentive.

Was supposed to have desserts at Cafe Seoulhwa Bingsu but they were closing already. So decided to just have a coffee and cake here. This was recommended by the waitress: Choco Lava Cake ala Mode. It was good. Not too sweet. The vanilla ice cream made a difference. 128077🏻

Marmalade.   A fruit preserve made from the juice and peel of citrus fruits boiled with sugar and water (Source:  Wikipedia)

A popular song by the defunct girl group All Saints.  Even more popularized by the Genie in a Bottle herself.  Oh wait,  it's Lady Marmalade.  Sorry,  i missed the  first word.

I am not a big fan of chocolate.  A lil weird,  i know,  who doesnt like chocolate.  It's not that i dont like 'em,  let's put it this way,  if i were to pick between chips over chocolate,  I'd pick the former.  If it's dark chocolate with mint or chili  it's a whole different ball game.  I like em bitter and spicy.

Gluttony at Sarsa ended after an hour or two.  Me and my band of me misfits decided to have coffee and dessert.   Marmalade is close,  all we had to do is walk a couple of steps and take the stairs.

According to the reviews I read online,  they make a mean choco lava cake.  Me,  being curious and all decided to see what the fuss is all about and picked it from their dessert menu along with Salted Caramel syrup.  Sugar High!!!

I spoke to the manager while we are waiting for our order.   He is very articulate and accomodating,  he didnt mind the ruccus we are making.  I dunno,  maybe because we are their only customers,  considering it is a Friday.  He advised that they conduct cooking lessons too,  hence the kitchen-like set up behind the glass.  I forgot the how much they charge for the lessons though.

Salted Caramel Milkshake.  It is way too sweet,  i didn't taste the sea salt.  No hints of sea salt,  none at all.  The level of sweetness is Diabetes-inducing.   Suffice to say that I almost went to a Sugar Shock after the first sip. 

Choco Lava Cake.  The gooey stuff in  the middle has the right amount of sweetness,  cake is moist and cooked perfectly.  It was okay,  not remarkable.  This is a biased opinion from someone who doesnt belong in the Sweet Tooth tribe. 

Will i come back,  why yes,  I did come back....not for their desserts though.  I bought Granola and Organic Honey they sell at the counter.

I was really really excited to try this place because i've heard good things about it.

Upon entering it was already a homey place, plus points! They also hold cooking and baking classes here. They have a separate area for it!

I ordered Southern Fried Chicken with Gravy and Coleslaw and my partner ordered, Crispy Tapa.

Here's the thing that ticked me off, it took them 25-30 minutes for the crispy tapa to arrive on our table while my order took them almost AN HOUR. I was already HANGRY (Hungry + Angry)

I was actually saying to my partner that, the food better be damn good!

The chicken almost tastes like the one i had in Cracker Barrel in North Carolina. The chicken was also a fillet. There were no bones in it. This was the redeeming factor of the food. But then again, the gravy was too oily for me and the coleslaw was just okay.

Thus the 3 stars only.

It has been a while since I last visited Marmalade Kitchen. The last time I went was August of last year and I just had a cup of coffee and caramel custard tart because I was still full then. This time around, I visited famished and was ready to eat.

Hello again, Marmalade Kitchen.

When I arrived, it seemed as if I reserved the whole place for myself as the restaurant was empty. It actually made me feel a bit lonely. But I didn’t have the time to feel sad as I was really hungry.

This time, I ordered a bowl of Spinach Cappuccino (PHP180) and Smoked Salmon and Caviar Eggs Benedict (PHP290).

It took them quite a bit to prepare my meal as the chef was out on a break and was only able to prepare my meal after 7 minutes had passed.

Anyway, after about 15 to 20 minutes, my soup was served.

It was served really hot and I burnt my tongue because I was in a hurry. :(

The spinach soup was quite salty but delicious. I loved the creamy foam on top which reminded me of cappuccino.

Since I had to leave in 10 minutes, I asked the server to pack my Eggs Benedict instead.

It looked a bit sad in the plastic microwave safe container. But the sliced tomatoes were too tempting that I ate one before leaving the restaurant.

To be honest, I wasn’t too happy with it because (1) there were only few salmon slices on the bread and (2) it was quite salty. I think the fact that I ate it after 15 minutes was also a factor why I didn’t enjoy it that much. *sigh*

I’ll still go here though for a quick coffee and dessert break. I enjoyed the caramel custard tart last time.

Tucked at the edge of Bonifacio Global City, Marmalade Kitchen boasts an exquisite ambiance and excellent food. The fettuccine is the right balance of flavor and restraint.

Pictured is the Roasted Chicken in Olive Oil and Garlic. Came here for late dinner, as the wife had dessert with her friends. I was actually preparing myself for disaster since the place was empty - a usual obvious sign that nobody eats there.

But to be fair to them, I was delighted with my meal. The chicken was cooked right, still juicy, seasoned well. They served it in a small bowl swimming in olive oil - while ok, it definitely made the texture too oily - so decided to ask for another plate to move the chicken to. The baked marble potatoes itself ended up tasting like olive oil being bathed on it.

As for the side of potato wedges - always a good sign when the wife eats a lot of it. Which is technically bad for her but she likes her potatoes. Generous portion of the side dish.

Over-all - they said that their desserts were the specialty. Found at least one main course worth the time. Worth going back to to try the other dishes. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint! 128556

We waited for 45 mins for food. We ordered appetizer which arrived late. Looking forward to the main course. Disappointing Beef Short Ribs P470.00 it's not worth it.

Service was terrible. They had a large group in the resto and they kept apologizing for the delay but if you have a large group then you should be prepared for the crowd.

I am not going back to this place... Disappointed as the desserts of Goodies and Sweets are good but the resto has fallen short

I'm liking Marmalade Kitchen's Royal Eggs Benedict (Steak and Cheese Bennie), Smoked Salmon and Caviar Bennie, and Key Lime Pie.

This visit was for a late breakfast after a morning run. My run mate knew I had a liking for Eggs Bennie and suggested that we filled up on Marmalade's unique Bennie offerings.

The place looked nice. Rustic , cozy, cafe feel. Quaint, with the usual chalkboard listing of their menu. Counters displaying their home made products for sale ranging from jams/jellies, fresh pasta, salad dressings, cookies, and such. Half of the place was a glassed-in portion used for cooking classes offered by the owner. Nicely quiet and uncrowded by the late breakfast weekend crowd of BGC who normally flock to the more popular breakfast joints (I guess owing to the fact that Marmalade Kitchen was somewhat secluded on the second floor).

I liked that they offered diners a choice between a full or half serving of their Eggs Bennie dishes.

Their Royal Eggs Benedict was a unique twist on the usual Eggs Bennie. Instead of the usual ham, they used beef steak. Not quite like tapa in flavor but more of a slice of nicely seasoned grilled thin slice of skirt steak. Smothered with cream cheese (their menu stated that it was truffled cream cheese---but I must say there was an absence of that truffle flavor), topped on a toasted slice of English Muffin, topped with a nicely poached egg, and smothered with buttery, velvety, nicely lemony rich Hollandaise sauce and topped with sautéed button mushrooms. Served with a side of mixed greens. The dish was reminiscent of a steak and cheese sandwich, this time rich with egg and hollandaise. The dish would have been better if the beef was a tad bit more tender and the cream cheese was richer with the truffle flavor that their menu promised.

I tried a bit of my friend's Smoked Salmon with Caviar Eggs Bennie. This was good. Slices of smoked salmon, topped with a poached egg, the same yummy hollandaise sauce and garnished with black caviar.

We loved their Key Lime Pie. A nice thick, buttery, crumbly crushed graham crust, topped with tarty-sweet Lime Curd and garnished with a bit of whipped cream.

As far as "unusual" Eggs Bennie dishes were concerned, I still have a leaning on the yummy Crab Cakes Bennies from Main Street. Otherwise, I would be happy with the "regular" Bennies from a list of establishments known to serve these.

I'd like to come back though to Marmalade Kitchen to try their other mains. Will come back too for their yummy Key Lime Pie and would like to try out their other pastries.

Me and my boyfriend are just finding a place to hang after a nice lunch when we saw Marmalade Kitchen.

We tried one of their deserts called Fallen cake which is so good! It's named like that because they top it with a yummy vanilla ice cream that slowly melts and falls in the center. Don't worry because the cake won't be soggy and the sweetness of both treats complements each other!

I have a client beside this resto so we always conduct our meetings here. Then there comes the days that I wish I have a meeting with this client because I already miss eating in Marmalade Kitchen.

The food is not as spectacular, it's light and serving is just right for someone with a small appetite like mine. But for some reason I craved for it because I am a fan of breakfast meals and their breakfast menu is something to try and repeat.

I had Egg's Benedict, Waffles, Fruit juices, fries cauliflower and panini. They all didn't fail me.

Happy eating!

One the newest restaurants in BGC Forum is the Marmalade Kitchen. They serve healthy comfort food from pasta to cupcakes. I like the freshly squeezed juices they are offering, it is an anti-oxidant (you can also avail it for takeout) They also sell cooking books, uncooked pasta, home spray, cookies, etc.

Discovered this neat place at BGC Forum. Was supposed to try Koko Buri that night, but saw this place in its soft opening and decided to give it a try.

Marmalade Kitchen is probably a more sosyal version of Banapple. I mean x5 more sosyal. Minus the doll house theme. Haha.

The reason being is they serve breads, pastries and cakes as well. They also sell pasta. Like literal pasta that you have to cook. Galing nga eh. Funny, they also sell air fresheners. They smell good actually.

So I ordered White Putanesca and KFC (Korean spicy Fried Chicken). The pasta was okay, didn't enjoy it that much cause I had a similar dish for lunch at TOSH. The KFC wasn't so special either.

I can't give the place a 5 star rating because the food is just okay, and a little pricey for me.

But the ambiance is really amazing. Perfect for dates. It would've been way better if they weren't playing Lil' Wayne though. Hahaha.

Oh! And by the way! They have this little room at the end, where it looks like a small set from a cooking show or masterchef. Turns out the owner does baking lessons there as well. Wasn't able to ask how much though.

Really neat place Marmalade Kitchen is. Worth a visit just to enjoy the ambiance.

Granted I only had coffee, everyone else had dessert, which according to them was pretty good.

Great interiors! Great service! Especially after the poor service we got for dinner at another nearby restaurant.

Definitely worth a trip back to this place :)

Yes, I miss all of you9786 The Christmas season is very hectic for me and I don't know when I can post again. Im sneaking in a review this very early 6am.... right before I go to work... on a Sunday....

This is a quaint, modern country place. I love the decor. Very homy, reminds me of all the delicious baked stuff my lola would make when I was a kid.

I thought it was just a dessert place. But when they handed us the menu they also had savory meals. We came in for dessert and coffee. They have nice packages of biscuits and pasta to bring home.

This is their turtle pie. Looks like a giant peanut butter cup. Its a bit too thin for my liking. I also would've preferred a non crumbly crust as it almost turned into crumbs at each bite. Theres a thin layer of caramel inside. Mejo bitin lang in terms of the thick chocolate-y goodness of a turtle pie that I know of.

Service was good, it was given with a smile. I think the owner is a girl that used to have a baking show in one of the local channels. I don't know her name though.

Mejo 3.5 lang yung pie ko but Id like to come back and try this place out again. Im really hoping I like this place.

So Merry Christmas everyone and have a great New Years Eve celebration! Im not sure if i can go back to Looloo within the next 2 weeks. Thanks for all the conversations! See you next year!
