Crepelato: My Long Overdue Return Visit

As the title implies, I had intended to visit Crepelato again for the longest time but haven't had the chance. Blame that to the fact that there has been a surge of new restaurants in the city, completely filling my list of must-try restaurants, and then having to put the return visits on the back burner. (To give you an idea as to how long it's been since my first visit, my entry on Crepelato is my first ever entry in this blog) But when I had the chance to hang out with some friends at NCCC Mall and was looking for a place to dine in, I thought it was the perfect excuse to try out Crepelato in their new branch.

Thankfully, not much has changed in Crepelato - speaking in terms of the food. Their location at NCCC Mall is just as tiny as their original branch is, although slightly more colorful and vibrant. But we really came in here for the food, so let's proceed to that...

We ordered a couple of their large offerings - Victorian Spareribs (P200) and Bulalo (P299). The Victorian Spareribs is just as good as the last time. In fact, I enjoyed this dish the first time that I immediately recommended that we order it upon checking out the menu. Thankfully, they had maintained the same rich and savory taste that I had come to love in the past. And the meat are very tender you can stick your knife into it and it will just fall off. This serving is ideal for 2-3 people. 

Then there is the Bulalo... At first, I thought it was a tad too expensive price tag for a meal like this. But it's worth every penny because the meat that goes with the soup is humungous! There were four of us during that time and we had a hard time finishing off the meat. It was tender, too, like the ribs! And the seasoning on the soup is just like how mom did it!

They have a pretty extensive drinks and dessert selection, too. We had a chance to sample their milk tea and gelatea. The latter is a tea that is topped with a scoop of gelato (flavor of your choice). I went with the Cheesecake Brownie flavor, which you have to try if you are looking to sample their gelatos on your visit here! It comes with a rich and creamy flavor, perfect to cut off the savory taste of the Bulalo and Ribs

To end the meal, we had the Crepelato... as I noted before, it is a wonderful dessert because you have a combination of texture (soft from the gelato and crunchy from the cereals sprinled over it and the belgian cone). You can't dine here without giving any of these a try! And like always, you can get a free taste before picking which gelato to top your crepelato with. 

Crepelato is located at the ground floor of NCCC Mall, right across HB1 and beside Mandarin Tea Garden.
