These are the food and drinks that I was able to enjoy!

Gelare ice cream in Blueberry cheesecake, Honey malt and Green tea!

Gelare is indeed different from regular ice cream. I think this is filling on the tummy, plus it has a certain consistency and texture. It's also not too sweet, but just right and creamy. The flavor options are so varied too, ensuring something for everyone.

Thick Shake in Oregon Mint Fudge.
Dreamy and thick, satisfies my milkshake cravings! Next time, I wanna try their real fruit smoothie!

Waffle with Buttermilk Fried Chicken.
Juicy chicken paired with waffles that are perfectly crisp on the outside yet light and fluffy on the inside. You can also try the waffles with egg benedicts or sliced beef and gravy (thinly sliced sirloin that's rich, flavorful and tender).

Waffle a la mode.
The serving is big so I have no doubt this can already replace a meal. It has rich buttercream and a scoop of ice cream as toppings. As sweet as me. Charot lang!
