I first read about these so-called COOKIE SHOTS on Facebook. Many netizens have already uploaded and shared their respective pictures of cookie shots in social media and have given positive feedback about such. This made me want to try it out and feed my curiosity.
These Cookie Shots are part of the menu of CAFE MI CORAZON, a humble sized cafe located at a small alley in Bangoy fronting 7Eleven Ponciano. I have already tried a few of their rice meals before which the owner, Claudine Yu, personally delivered to me at the office (such a sweet girl, by the way). I always promised myself to visit the cafe soon but never found the spare time to do so. Thanks to a blog post made by my co-blogger Jazzie Tabigue of www.jazzsayings.wordpress.com, I started to crave for Cafe Mi Corazon’s rice meals. I honestly found their rice meals tasty and they are quite generous with the amount of servings per meal.
Cafe Mi Corazon, as what I’ve mentioned earlier, is located at an alley along boutiques, karinderyas and other establishments. Nevertheless, the cafe stands out among all the others because of the effort done to make the exterior of the cafe quite pleasing to the eye with minimalist style. Upon entering the alley, it’s very easy to spot the cafe at the right side. From the outside, one can easily conclude the cafe’s small size. But despite this, the food the cafe serves is far bigger than one can indeed expect.
You read it right – Php 65 pesos each for the rice meals that we ordered. Their Rice Meals range from Php 65 – 95 pesos and that price already comes with a drink. You can either choose from three flavors – Blue Lemonade, Four Seasons and Lychee. For that price, one can even have that meal on an every day basis.
And of course, introducing the COOKIE SHOT. We ordered the Signature Cookie Shot with Milk (recommended by Claudine) which was only Php 55. There is even a step by step instruction written on the wall on how to enjoy the Cookie Shot. And let me tell you, the rave about it is no joke – it was really delicious! It made me remember my childhood days when I enjoyed eating both cookies and milk before going to bed. I’m sure even the kids love this dessert.
The cookie shots also comes in other flavors such as Double Chocolate Cookie Shot with Milk (Php 65) and Matcha Cookie Shot (Php 90). Aside from this, the cafe has other desserts as well such as Messy Cake (Php 40), Tablea Cake (Php 45) and Cinnamon Aloha with Ice Cream (Php 65) to name a few.
Despite its size, Cafe Mi Corazon has a lot of delicious treats to offer like pasta, sandwiches, pizza, milk teas and frappes.
CAFE MI CORAZON is located at Doña Segunda Complex, Bldg 1 Stall 14 and 15A, C. Bangoy Street, Davao City. The alleyway is located in front of 7Eleven and can be seen at the right side.
