Beat the Heat with Kingkong’s Revenge!

It’s a beautiful Sunday once again! And tonight was made even more wonderful because I’ve got to watch the Avengers with the guys. We really had a good laugh while watching The Hulk  smash Loki like a boss and I couldn’t help but smile at the witty dialogues thrown throughout the movie. But what’s the best thing to do after watching a 142 minutes of fantastic action movie? Eat a fabulous dinner. Definitely. So after giving it much thought, our hungry tummy lead us to Icebergs in Mall of Asia Seaside for some quick dinner and ICE CREAM! 😀

I’ve been to Icebergs a couple of times before but it’s my first time to try their other dishes tonight. And because we’d like to have a light dinner, we ordered three of their pasta dishes. Cheesy Beef Lasagna for boyfriend, Baked Penne for big brother and Hungarian Sausage and Mushroom Carbonara for me! Although Icebergs is known for their different ice cream treat, I must say their other dishes are awesome too!

My carbonara came fresh from the oven, 15 minutes after we put our order. Their carbonara is really creamy and thick and it is perfect when paired with the garlic bread. My brother commented though, that once the carbonara turned cold, it became blunt and unpleasant to taste. The hungarian sausage and the mushroom made up for the little lapses though, so I ended up enjoying my food nonetheless.

The Cheesy beef lasagna is just okay. Nothing much to say. I’m not sure if it tastes much better than Greenwich lasagna but at least Icebergs’ cheesy beef lasagna comes in bigger serving.

 

 

The Baked Penne has that salty taste according to my brother. But one thing interesting in their baked Penne is the Feta cheese – a cheese made from sheep or goat’s milk that that has a little sweet and sour taste. It gave a delicious twist to the Baked Penne and made it even tastier.

 

After a satisfying meal came the star of the night – Kingkong’s Revenge! It’s 5 scoops of different flavors of ice cream, mixed with fruits like pineapple and banana, topped with whipped cream, chocolate chips and chunks of brownies! Yuuummmmy!

Jollibee Chocolate Float: A Sure Win Alternative for Coke Float!

After an overwhelming lunch, my officemates and I passed by Jollibee along Paseo De Roxas and decided to grab a cup of Jollibee’s Choco Float. And lo and behold, it’s REALLY chocolaty! And as chocoholic as I am, I found it as an awesome after lunch treat.

For just P40 you can get a taste of Jollibee’s latest offering this summer! It’s made of ice cold chocolate drink topped with sundae, and choco hot fudge. This is surely something to tickle your taste buds if you’re looking for something to replace your love for Coke Float.

After a few sip, I began to be overwhelmed by the sweetness and bitterness of the Jollibee Chocofloat. The big difference about coke float and chocofloat is that the former will make you want for more, the latter will, uhhhmm, make you want to gulp down a liter of water. If you know what I mean.

On our way back to the office, we had to walk our way to the bus loading area. I was really thankful to have something to drink while walking in the middle of the scorching sun. It was freaking 36.2 degrees in the metro today and Jollibee Choco Float is definitely a big help to at least beat the heat!

If you’ve already tried Jollibee’s Choco Float, please share your experience at the comment section. And if you were also able to taste the other flavor, Coffee Float, maybe you can also tell me why I should also love this treat! 🙂
