Love at First Bite (and Sip): Q House

This summer is just too intense. I can't picture myself basking under the sun even if I was on the fine white sands of Boracay making sand angels. It is just too hot! Thankfully, there are new joints that would help us survive this hellish weather. And my new favorite is Q House. 

Hello, Q House!
Q House is Uptown Bonifacio's newest dessert concept and it serves classic banana cue with a twist!
I quickly said yes to Z's invite to visit Q House with barely any expectation except indulging in a cold treat to help me beat the heat. I know that it also offers snacks but I brushed the idea that it would wow me as most cafes that serve milk shakes serve mediocre snacks. But I was so wrong. 
I tried its Matcha Made in Heaven Signature Milkshake (PHP215), Caramelized Banana Fries ala Mode (PHP95), Mangoes and Cream Sweet Qizza (PHP115) and Mushroom Truffle Cream (PHP215). 
While waiting, I checked out Q House display of Quirks' items which are also for sale.
First served was my matcha drink and it was love at first sip! Sweet with pronounced taste of matcha, I love how the Oreo bits did not downplay the green tea flavor. This is definitely something non-matcha lovers would enjoy too. 
Caramelized banana fries with yogurt was a pairing I never thought would work so well together. I loved it so much that I couldn't help dream about it. The hot and cold contrast made it an instant favorite and I love the contrast in texture too. And no, it was not overly sweet.
This season is also the best time to grab some Mangoes and Cream Qizza. With all the hype for mango desserts, this one sure is worth the rave. It somewhat reminded me of strudel. 
The Mushroom Truffle Cream was divine! I might be biased though as I love anything with truffle and mushroom but this fragrant flatbread made me buy another to go!
Just as I was to pay for my flatbread, I noticed that Q House has a bang for the buck Meal Deal worth PHP300 which includes flatbread, lemon and basil or strawberry mint tea and caramelized banana fries. Note that the deal only includes flatbreads that cost PHP195. You have to add PHP20 for flatbreads that cost PHP215. Still not a bad deal though.   
I can't wait to visit again to try its other drinks and snacks like its kale smoothie. 
Q House is located at 4th Floor, Uptown Bonifacio, 9th Avenue, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
