With Casa Verde's Lauren's Lava, however, it was a totally different story. While there wasn't much of the chocolate that oozed out to enthrall me, giving it another chance proved to be a really wise decision. It was a heaping serving of moist chocolate cake topped with a layer of vanilla ice cream covered in the same hard chocolate coating on the previous dish. It was a heavenly treat that I look forward to meeting once again.

Finally, to break the chocolate upon chocolate habit, we decided to get the Strawberry Shortcake Banana Split
. If Banana Split made love to a cake, this would definitely be its offspring. While I felt sad for the small portion of strawberry shortcake (compared to the banana split), it was a refreshing take on an old familiar treat I've been enjoying as a child. What I loved most about this dessert was that there was a generous supply of strawberry preserves on top of the cake. Lami kaayo!

Overall, I enjoyed my food trip with my office friends. Most of all, I'm enjoying my stay in Cebu. It definitely is a new chapter in my life that I am more than willing to explore and taste the different restaurants in Cebu that are awaiting me! Stay tuned for my next good food trips :)
