This afternoon, Mom had this craving for sweets, so I tagged along. I'm not supposed to be eating sweets because I'm sick, but it's kinda difficult for me to say no to food under normal circumstances. (I'm sure most of my readers, friends and family already know that by now.)
Even if visiting Myrna's was her idea in the first place, Mom felt guilty about all the sugar that we were about to feast upon. She decided to go for an espresso-based drink instead of any of the sweet ones that the bakehouse offered. As for me, I went for a long-time favorite of mine. It's called Chocomallow Mars. I have always loved having marshmallows on my hot chocolate. The drink was served with some brown sugar, but I didn't need to add any since the creamy topping and the chocolate itself was already sweet.
Mom ordered her favorite pudding and of course, the ever-present buko pie. Myrna's version would have to be my second favorite here in Zamboanga. Antonio's will always top my list. Though it has a very tasty crust, a meringue topping and a creamy filling, it still cannot compete with my favorite. :) My cough was acting up again though, so Mom was made to finish most of the sweet treats.
What made me really full was the ham and bacon panini. I have yet to taste a panini that's as good as that of Myrna's. Though it's a bit pricey, it's worth it. I just cannot explain how crispy and buttery it is. It also really goes well with the potato chips that they serve them with. I wasn't even hungry because I had a heavy lunch, so it amazed me when I was able to finish the whole thing in one sitting.
It was really nice to go back to Myrna's. I've had a lot of good times there with a number of people. In a way, it felt like going home somehow - the familiarity of the place and the taste of the food I've loved since I can't remember. Even if I'll discover more places to eat in, I will always make sure to return to Myrna's whenever I can.
How about you? Do you have a favorite restaurant/café that makes you feel the same way?
