Mother's Crepe & Cafe in SM Mall of Asia

Summer is here! I can't believe it's already March which means we're almost done with the 1st quarter of 2013. Time is running on high speed, don't you think?

Anyway, with the heat getting to be more intense outside, all the more I crave for cold desserts. Ice cream, yogurt and our ever-popular halo-halo. Just the thought of it is making me miss Manila more and more. *sigh*

Aside from my dessert bar staples such as creme brulee and a scoop of ice cream, I am also a big fan of crepes. I tell you, I can have crepes at anytime of the day. The savory ones for breakfast, lunch or dinner and the sweet fruity ones in between. This is also why my family and I frequent our neighborhood creperie a whole lot ever since it opened its doors to the public. Let's just say, that's our way of giving our all out support in hopes that it'll be there to serve us forever and ever.

During one of our not-so-frequent trips to the SM Mall of Asia, Paul, Joan (a.k.a. Mrs. Food Alphabet) and I spotted an interested crepe store located at the Entertainment Mall. The store is really tiny that customers had to sit outside to enjoy their crepes yet at 3 in the afternoon, it was filled with what-seems-to-be happy customers enjoying their crepes. Just like a magnet, we were instantly drawn towards Mother's Crepe & Cafe's display window.

Just like most Japanese coffee shops, they had these plastic replicas of their crepes to give all curious passerby like yours truly a better idea of what are the crepe flavors they have available.

We tried the Caramel Strawberry Cheesecake Soft (Php. 255). I know it may be quite pricey for one order of crepe but if it's filled with generous slices of sweet strawberries, a slice of the creamiest cheesecake and caramel drizzle on top, how can we complain? This is perfect for those who loves strawberry cheesecake like me! Next time though, I'll remember to ask the server to not put whipped cream on my crepe as I had to scrape them off before eating it anyway.

While we were making our order, we were also drawn towards the Premium Chocolate Crepe line. I liked this better as there are flavors with no cream (whipped or fresh) on it. One example was the Strawberry and Milk Chocolate Crepe that we got. This was really not part of the menu but since we both do not like bitter (dark) chocolate and Paul isn't a fan of white chocolate, we asked the server if they can make it with milk chocolate instead. I'm glad she gave in to our request and there we had it! Our yummy Strawberry and Milk Chocolate Crepe. This was my favorite as I just love how well chocolates and strawberries go well together. This particular crepe reminded us of our wedding motif two years ago. :)

In between taking in bites of our two crepes, I also tried the Hokkaido Ice Cream (Php. 100) which once again garnered an eyebrow raise from my very err.. thrifty husband. He couldn't believe I'd spend a hundred pesos for an ice cream cone but I've been hearing raves about this and I'm willing to make an "investment" on something really yummy. Well, look who ended up finishing the cone. Hmph!

I took a few licks and bites and while watching me enjoy my ice cream cone, he asked if he can try it too and before I knew it, I was left with just the cone! His excuse explanation? The ice cream was melting way to fast and he had to keep on licking in order not to make a mess. Tsk tsk tsk... Well, I just have to say that it was indeed worth the hundred peso price tag and I can't wait to go back and to have this again.

The last thing we tried was the Halo Halo (Php. 125) which was just a-okay for me. I found it hard to mix all the ingredients together as the crushed ice were a bit too big that it was getting in the way. I liked the strong taro flavor though and would rather just stick a straw into this and enjoy it as a drink. I'll worry about the other toppings and fillings later on.
How I wish Mother's Crepe & Cafe would add more branches as we only get to go to the SM Mall of Asia at most 4 times in a year. The good news for us though is that Mother's Crepe's sister franchise called Mazazu Crepe is available here in Singapore and it's just a few train stops away too! Hooray! :)

Mother's Crepe & Cafe is located at the 2nd floor, Entertainment Mall, SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. Like them on Facebook
