Ilocos Sur: Dulcelise Dessert Bar

Dulcelise Dessert Bar 

Vigan City, Ilocos Sur 

Now that the holiday seasons are just around the corners, we Filipinos show warmth in gift-giving from a simple token to  a lavish foodie treats, I stumble upon Dulcelise Dessert Bar right next to my doorstep. Foodamn Philippines being a natural sweet tooth spend an afternoon delight with Dulcelise owner, Patch Singson.

Reese's Cheesecake
PhP980 / whole (Approx. $24)
What catches my breath when I saw Dulcelise Dessert Bar's visual marketing, the Reese's Cheesecake!  The same tempting chocolate-peanut sweets that I have been using as a codename: D_ _ _ _ _ Reese's for a social media platform. And the very same reason I have plenty stocks of Reese's peanut butter cups and Reese's miniatures on our fridge (as pantry). And this time with a cheesecake - a to-die-for treats!

Where did all started?
Dulcelise Dessert Bar started two years ago in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur, Dulcelise  was named after the family's daughter Elise, plus "dulce" Spanish term for sweet.

Patch harness her love for pastry from Chef Heny Sison and since then Dulcelise created a niche of its own. Dulcelise Dessert Bar offers a delectable cakes and pastries, pre-order and custom-made cupcakes, all occasion cakes, ginger breads and sandwiches. The cafe in Vigan has already a word of mouth among local travelers and loyal patrons.

Cheesecakes, anyone?
Dulcelise served Foodamn Philippines the cafe's two bestsellers: the Reese's Cheesecake and the Lemon Torte.

If the Reese's Cheesecake could be the best selling dessert for Ruggles Grill (in Houston - by the way they are close for business and is coming up with a new identity), wait until I explore the possibilities of Dulcelise. Filipinos love to dine and merrymaking topped with its rich culture, we imminently built a character how to have the finest taste buds globally. The Reese's cheesecake is an original recipe, I wonder when will I learn how to make my own Reese's peanut butter cups and save a lot of dough from buying those little cups. Reese's cheesecake combines chocolate, peanut butter and cheesecake, a perfect combination of something sweet and something salty that was heavenly sent.

Lemon Torte
PhP950 / whole (Approx. $23)
Another fine experience with the Dulcelise Lemon Torte, made of meringue base with walnut crust, whipped creams all over and zesty lemon fillings. Another wonderful combination of sweetness and tangy. Patch says, kids sometimes don't like the sour taste even on a dessert. But in general, there were kids I have known who loves eating sour-based dishes and even Willy Wonka's Nerd was a blast! =) I think kids will appreciate it as much as we do!
