I’m not fond of queueing unless it’s absolutely necessary. That’s why I didn’t bother going to Dominique Ansel the last time I was in New York. But now I really want to go, after seeing his creations on Instagram, for example:
Vanilla ice cream waffle with Belgium waffle bits, lightly salted, and topped with maple-syrup espresso poured on top.
As the ice cream melts, little tapioca pearls are revealed and float in the melted ice cream espresso sauce
But what really kills me are pictures of the Cookie Shots.
Imagine a shot glass made of chocolate chip cookie and lined with chocolate, with milk poured inside
This one I would line up for. But since a New York trip is still far away, I couldn’t help but order the local version, which is conveniently located in Kapitolyo, Pasig.
The verdict? Not bad. It tastes exactly like it I imagined. I was not disappointed.
I had one for breakfast on the first day and another on the second day.
On the third day, however, I couldn’t finish it anymore. So I got over it, but the kids at home loved it and so did their cousins.
A box of eight costs Php 320. You can order online through this site.
If you don’t mind paying Php 100 for home delivery, I suggest you order online, because the actual kitchen/bakery is not very pretty. But if that doesn’t bother you or you can send someone to pick up your order, then go ahead to Kapitolyo.
