Kitchen of Cakes and Coffee

I don’t get to see my best friend that often. Mabeth is a doctor and i am a dentist. Day-in and day-out, we are saving “lives” --- Hahaha! (Well, she is, but I am just saving teeth). But really, it is not easy for us to find time for each other, sometimes, but when we get together, you can be sure that it will involve food.

Two weeks ago, Mabeth and I, met up at Kitchen of Cakes and Coffee, along Tomas Morato. I would be honest, I pass by Tomas Morato more than once, every week, and although I see the restaurant beside it (and I can swear I’ve caught a glimpsed of it, before), I was surprised to find out that it was there. I mean, from the outside the place blends well with the background, in the sense that you don’t really get to notice it at once… but once you enter, it is the opposite. Inside, KOCCO is very welcoming and the smell of good food is truly inviting…

CHECK OUT THEIR TEA MENU
I am not a “tea” person but if I were, I would probably enjoy their collection

Mabeth and I, eat like boyfriend-girlfriend. We do not order separate meals, We always order different things and share with each other. Sometimes we order three platters and we finish it all (or I finish most of it). But since we met for BRUNCH and I am not really a breakfast person (although I love breakfast food, I just really don’t eat breakfast)  we only had the following:

P95.00
Super yummy and creamy.
The bread bowl is large and deep and for P95, I it was worth every spoonful.

Jill Had French Toast 
P65.00
I love french toast and this one is not only cheap, it was yummy.
There were six half-slices, so that’s three pieces of either white or whole wheat bread.

Honey Mustard Fish Fillet w/ side of fries 
P180.00
At first glance, I thought that the serving was small, but it is was yummy and quite filling. I would not eat this on it’s own though, so it’s a good thing that everything in the menu is very affordable. You can just try different things.

Mango and Walnut Torte
P80.00
Every time we go out to eat, even if we’re already full , we always say: “There’s always room for dessert” and so we got this very yummy cake. The walnuts and the mango taste very good, together, and although I thought this would be “too” sweet… it wasn’t. It looked so yummy, i wasn’t able to take a good picture of it (See?)


We, each, had to pay P277.00 and that isn’t bad at all, right. I even brought home White Chocolate Sansrival for Bon and he said it was very yummy too! I really have to explore around my area. I think I will make it my goal to eat at every restaurant along Tomas Morato and Timog Avenue (and then move to the side streets, after). Maybe I should do a Julie Powell and do one restaurant everyday for the entire year. That would cost me a lot of money, though, so I take it back! Hahaha!

Anyway, since I'm talking about my best friend and her job, "saving lives", I would like to share this video from the DLSU Blast. I was supposed to be with her to welcome her friend after the Bar Examinations but I got stuck doing something else... You do not have to watch the entire video because it's kinda shaky and sad... just fast forward to 1:15, the lady in blue shirt (with short hair) is my bestest friend in the world... future kick-ass ER DOCTOR!

I don't usually eat breakfast, but I do enjoy it when I have time to relax and eat. Brunch is always nice. I would have enjoyed sharing the french toast and the fish looked good.


Male emergency patients will find an extra will to survive when they realize they have such a pretty doctor helping them. =)
