First time to try Lamington.  I am glad i tried the affordable version first.  This will help me in writing a comprehensive comparison between the affordable vs the upscale version (yes,  Bondi and Burke is next on my list)

For those who dunno what a Lamington is...read on

Lamington is an Australian dessert or snack, typically made with squares of sponge cake coated in an outer layer of chocolate sauce and rolled in desiccated coconut.  The thin chocolate mixture is absorbed into the outside of the sponge cake and left to set, resulting in the cake's distinctive texture.  A common variation has a layer of cream or strawberry jam between two lamington halves.

Lamingtons remain a popular snack across Australia and New Zealand, as well as other parts of the world, such as South Africa, and Cleveland in the United States. Lamingtons are common products at supermarkets, cafes and bakeries.

Back to Tasy Tucker's affordable Aussie cake.  The cake is not as moist as I want it to be.  But for php 49 a piece,  i aint complaining.  The dessicated coconut adds a fresh twist to the chocolate coated sponge cake.  This is best paired with coffee, perfect snack while reading your favourite book.

Took home some frozen meat pies and sausage rolls to go. We ate it for breakfast this morning and liked it! They have several kinds, I got 3 but I don't remember which of them I took home.

We used to get similar frozen English pies from Bag of Beans in Tagaytay. Same size, almost the same fillings. The crust of BoB is thicker and of the soft kind. I'm happy that there's a nearer alternative to buy food I can just reheat as a quick meal.

These however are Aussie pies, 99% sure. I was wondering last time I was here if Tasty Tucker is Australian because they have a lot of items from Oz. I just remembered today that I met the owner of HMR many years back because they're (or used to be, not sure if they moved) our neighbors.

These were super flaky and crumbly. Not buttery though, but it would make it too rich. You can see the flaky bits on the plate. I love, love, loved each crisp bite. There's also a lot more meat on this one than BoB. Would've loved it if the pie filling had tomato sauce, kinda like what Jamaican Patty puts in theirs.

The sausage roll was also pretty good. Same flaky crust. They used a white sausage, like a kielbasa, so I'm happy they didn't use a regular red hotdog. It didn't have any sauce in it like the Starbucks sausage roll which I really like. We ate it with a little Dijon mustard. For just about 120 pesos this feels like a steal.

On the photo is the beef pie on the left, sausage roll on the right. This is part of a breakfast we made at home so everything else is not from Tucker's - old-fashioned bacon, eggs sunny side up with a dash of cayenne pepper, Wild Flour's croissant, and home-made Japanese cheesecake with sliced Divisoria kiwi.

Found lamingtons for 49 pesos only! It's a big chunk of cake, about 2" in height and 3" in diameter, covered with a thin layer of melted chocolate and coconut flakes. No cream in the center.

I've only tried Bondi's version and this pales in comparison. Bondi's is much lighter and softer than this one. I even like Fireside's Vilma Santos coconut cake more than this one. But it's alright, pretty cheap anyway.

They sell other pastries here. I saw an Oreo cheesecake and carrot cakes. I got frozen sausage rolls and beef pies to go, 75-125 pesos depending on the variety you choose. They also sell bottles of Australian olive oils.

This is only an extension of the main restaurant, which is inside HMR.
