Review: Rome’s Patisserie (2/F University Mall, Vito Cruz, Taft Avenue, Manila)

We’re always on the look out for some fresh dessert ideas, so when we discovered Rome’s Patisserie, we stumbled upon some of their most novel pastries and sweets that will make you come back for more.

Blueberry Cheesecake (4-inch round Php 170, 8-inch round Php 850)

Red Velvet Cheesecake (4-inch round Php 170, 8-inch round Php 850)

They have the cutest cheesecakes, something I can see myself buying as a present for a friend celebrating a birthday or a special occasion. Or maybe just something I can drown my sorrows with by eating it by myself (and not sharing! haha) on bad days.

Assorted Cupcakes

Choco Banana (Php 65), Carrot (Php 55) and Dulce de Leche (Php 65)

These mouthwatering cupcakes were insanely delicious. Among the three, my favorite would have to be the carrot cupcake. Unlike other carrot cakes, this one has a carrot flavor that you can appreciate more. These cupcakes lasts for 3-4 days on room temperature, but I doubt it would last that long. Imagine being in the same room with a pretty cupcake, and the torture of not putting it in your mouth? I can’t.

From the top (L-R) Food for the gods, Cream Cheese Brownies, Revel Bars and Walnut Brownies

We got to take home these goodies , which I happily munched on and shared with my mom. Here’s why you should try them all:

1. The revel bars — easily my favorite treat among the bunch, the revel bar is composed of two layers of oatmeal cookie dough, with a surprise chocolate walnut fudge center. The revel bar wasn’t too sweet,and therefore, keeps you coming for seconds and thirds. I loved the texture that the oatmeal provided to the revel bar.

2. Cream Cheese brownies — You see the bars on top with the swirly design on them? Those are the cream cheese brownies. They’re dark moist brownies swirled with a cream cheese topping, and every bite is delightful.

3. Food for the gods — I rarely get to eat this, so I’m really happy to know that there’s an accessible pastry shop which offers these seasonal treats. Despite the walnuts and the cashew nuts, and my dislike for most things nuts, I enjoyed Chef Rome’s Food for the gods. They were soft and chewy, and the raisins were the highlight of this treat. Sold for Php 90 for 8 slices, Php 150 for 16 slices, and Php 300 for 32 slices.

4. Walnut Brownies — Last but not the least, the walnut brownies. These were actually my mom’s favorites! They weren’t as moist as the other brownies, which made my mom partial to them. Priced at Php 90 for 8 slices, Php 150 for 16 slices, and Php 300 for 32 slices.

The Brookie (Php 30 per 3×3 bar)

Guys, let me introduce you to the brookie. It’s a hybrid of a fudgy brownie with a choco chip cookie layer on top. I loved the idea, but I think the cookie layer needs to be less chewy and moist, and more crunchy. The lack of difference in texture and consistency kind of makes me ambivalent about this treat, and I feel it’s confused. But I definitely have high hopes for the brookie, and hoping that they would consider making the cookie layer crunchier!

Any of these would make great gifts, especially to dessert lovers and people who enjoy eating sweets. It’s comforting to know that any time we feel like satisfying our need for a sugar rush, we can head over to Rome’s Patisserie for our sweet fix. You can also place orders or order in advance online.
