I can attribute
penchant for sweet things to the fact that the city is surrounded with
sprawling sugarcane fields. My Papa, who hails from the “City of Bacolod ”,

I made sure to satiate my sweet tooth by going to Calea – the city’s pride when

In front of it is a lifestyle store which has a plethora of clothing and footwear brands that do not have their own boutiques in the city yet.
I went for Oreo Cheesecake and a classic Chocolate sponge cake. Don’t let their simple looks fool you because they’re sickly sweet! The cakes were definitely luscious but I’m not sure if everyone will appreciate such type of sweetness.
To make up for the extreme sugar load, I looked for a drink with a bitter aftertaste. I ended up with Munsterrific’s cute root beer float. Munsterrific is
version of Family Mart, 7-Eleven, and Mini Stop. Bacolod
