Dining out need not be complicated. With today’s hectic schedule, it’s a must to find a place that can cater to your every gastro cravings…under one roof. Oftentimes, we “hop” from one restaurant to another in order to satisfy our yearning for comfort food. Still, going to two (or three) restaurants in one go is not a favourable past time that we can do all the time.
The question remains, is it possible to satisfy a craving under one roof? Of course, YES!
Let me introduce you to Davao’s newest food destination — Yolks Flower Cake + Cupcakery. A resto, flower shop and cupcakery in one, Yolks creates a wonderful playground for the senses.
Being the first concept store in the Philippines to tie the beautiful anaesthetics of flowers and delicious flavours of food under one roof, it’s truly a must visit for everyone who seeks a food adventure without breaking the bank. And yes, everything on their menu is perfect for that particular palate explosion you are craving for.
Media personality and Chef, Michelle Robin, with her artistically creative partner, Chiq Ybaῆez, conceptualised Yolks as a one stop shop – flowershop and resto that serves all day breakfast. Together with their Chef consultant, Chef Mon Abalos, they came up with a number of dishes that expanded Yolks’ repertoire of flavours. Hence, a menu that’s packed with every flavour you want.
Their menu is not complicated; it’s very straight forward. From all day breakfast to bursting with flavour pasta dishes to colourful salads and juicy meaty mains, you will never not find something for you at Yolks.
Indulge in a plate of their delectable Florence Home Gourmet Tuyo Pasta or a plate of Waldorf Salad with your family and friends for that invigorating combination of flavours in your palate.
Feeling adventurous? Try their Yolks Black Pepperoni Pizza and be in 7th heaven in every bite. By the way, the black pizza is the first in Mindanao.
Breakfast, anyone? Wake up to a sumptuous combo of flavours with their Egg in a Basket and Sunrise Baguette for that instant added boost to your day. If you love pesto, then brace yourself. Pesto and breakfast? Pure heaven right there.
Going straight to the mains? Make room for their Yolks Pork Ribs Smothered in House Barbecue Sauce or a plate of Pan Grilled Peppered Steak and Rosemary Compound Butter minus the guilt. If salmon is your cup of tea, then you must try their Pan-fried Salmon Fillet with Lemon Grass Beurre Blanc Sauce – you’d fall in love with the sea in an instant. Their Main Dishes are served with a generous amount of Garlic Mashed Potato (this is beyond words – super delish!) and sautéed spring mix vegetables.
Aside from the dishes, you’d also find an array of hot and cold drink choices. Go ahead and take a sip of their decadent frappes and smoothies — Choco-Strawberry Smoothie, Choco-Hazelnut Frappe, Tiramisu Freeze, Blueberry Vanilla Freeze, Kiwi Smoothie and my personal favourite, Choco-Peanut Butter Freeze.
Or have fun drinking their colourful lemonades — Blue Lemonade and Cucumber Lemonade – which are both refreshingly good. Try mixing both. Thank me later.
Want something hot? Try their hot Matcha for that perk me up feeling –anytime of any day. (As of writing, Greene Dare Cold Pressed Juices will soon be available).
Dessert, anyone? You must make room for their array of decadent cupcakes decorated to make you smile in an instant. Choose from their selection … don’t be shy. You’d surely thank your self after.
