One of the first few places that opened up in the new wing of UP town center is Nic’s Bakeshop. I never heard about it until today and I did not find the food expensive but I found their pre packed lasagnas and cakes pretty pricey. It doesn’t seem to be a restaurant, I think it’s just more of a place you’d pass by to buy pre packed meals for parties and cakes. They have lasagna for about Php 1000 something and a whole bunch of cakes for about 800php. I just wanted to give the food a try today and look around for what else they were selling in their shop.
I asked the lady at the counter about their best dishes and the first of what she recommended to me was this Chicken Parmigiana and the next was the Sirloin Tapa meal. So that is what we decided to go with. Unfortunately we were not able to try any cakes after that since we were so full, so we’ll save the cakes for another day.
The Chicken Parmigiana was okay, I was expecting it to be softer and not so dry? I think its easy to overcook chicken and it becomes kind of dry. The meal as a whole however tasted good. Their meals have this homey feel just like how the restaurants vibes are. The Sirloin Tapa was good but it wasn’t really all that special, just the typical kind of tapa that you could make at home. I’m still biased when it comes to Tapa meals and the such I would say Rodic’s will still be my favorite place to be eating Pinoy breakfast food.
I did enjoy eating here though as the staff were very friendly and when asked about the food I explained to them about the chicken and the pasta and they did take my suggestions in. I really like places that give good ambiance and service. I might get some of their ready made party food from here next time and some of their cakes of course.
