I have a few favorite places that I go to whenever I’m lazy, tired or just wanted to have a quick break. One of which is Happy Cream Puff at Shangri-La Plaza Mall’s East Wing. (Wow, that’s a mouthful!) The place is not as crowded as Starbucks and they have free wi-fi (which fails me at times). And since they also serve savory dishes, it’s one of my top choices when I’m hungry and need food ASAP.
It was already 4 p.m. when we got to Shangri-La and with no food in our bellies; we were starting to get cranky. My sister and I decided to go to Happy Cream Puff for a quick meal before doing other errands.
Konnichiwa, Happy Cream Puff!
This time around, I decided to go for the Nagoya Spaghetti (PHP230) while my sister ordered the Salisbury steak. We also got Banana Nama Éclair (PHP105) for dessert.
For some reason, I was so addicted to spaghetti that week. Just the day before, I also had spaghetti. I felt like I was possessed by Hetty Spaghetti. Anyway…
It may seem odd but spaghetti with egg on a sizzling plate was not a bad idea at all. It went well together. The sauce was slightly tangy and the pasta was a bit chewy. It made the h”a”ngry tummy happy.
I took some of my sister’s fries that went with her Salisbury steak. We were surprised that underneath the fried egg, there was another patty. Yay! I didn’t get to try it though but she finished the whole thing. And as a picky eater, that means that the dish was good.
The Banana Nama Éclair wasn’t sweet at all so it’s perfect for those who want dessert yet doesn’t like the guilty feeling that comes with it. Well, I’m sure the calorie level of this one is still higher compared to a cup of yogurt but hey, no one eats cream puffs or éclairs every day. Go treat yourself. <3
Yes, this is still one happy place for me. :D
Happy Cream Puff is located at 5th floor, East Wing, Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Mandaluyong City.
