On typical Saturdays, my day begins very fast since my 7AM class can be a bit demanding and tiring (not that I hate school though. lol). As a result, I skip the most important meal of the day – Breakfast! Good thing last Saturday, me and my Davao Bloggers Society friends have been invited to try out the newly opened cafe in Circumferencial Road – Yolks Flower Café & Cupcakery. And my tummy was more than delighted to be in their food tasting event!
New restaurants and café’s have been popping everywhere almost every few months here in Davao and I am more than ecstatic to try them all out! One of the newly opened is Yolks Flower Café & Cupcakery. The said cafe is partnered by Michelle Robin and Chiqk Ybañes; a passionate cook and florist. I think it’s a refreshing concept to have a restaurant and flower shop in one. It’s like the best of both worlds! I think cheesy couples will enjoy this place. So, without any fuss here are the foods that made my tummy happy that day:
First things first, Coffee! They served us with this Matcha Coffee (135 Php) and to all Matcha lovers out there, this is literally your cuppa! I personally love Matcha, but only to a minimal extent. This one though can be a bit overwhelming, for me atleast! But hey, it’s good matcha according to my Matcha Lover friends. 😉
YOLKS BLACK PEPPERONI PIZZA
They served us first with their best selling Yolk’s Black Pepperoni Pizza (385 Php). This pizza is equally appealing as it tastes. I love how it has a different dough color for some reason. Remember an episode in Spongebob Squarepants where he made colored buns for the burgers? That’s what I think. No? Okay. But again, taste matters and this pizza really did swooned me.
Next is this Waldorf Salad (175 Php), Now I’m sold with a plain Ceasars Salad for petes sake. I’m as simple as I can get but this Salad really tickled my fancy. I didn’t know Walnuts and Apple would taste good in Romaine Lettuce! I think I should bring my mom here since she’s a big fan of salads. Defenitely a 5 star for me.
The newest addition to their Pizza Family – Pizza verde! It’s not yet officially in the menu and we were lucky enough to get first dibs on this healthy dude right here. It’s basically cheese, mushroom and a few herbs that definitely made the pizza a bomb! I personally like this than the black pizza.
YOLKS PORK RIBS, SMOTHERED IN HOUSE BBQ SAUCE
The owners told us that this baby was braised for four hours before serving to customers. So, imagine the tenderness of this pork ribs melting in your mouth! Ahhh. I like how the barbeque sauce is a bit sour and has this tangy taste that compliments well with the ribs. Paired with their mashed potato, this baby will definitely take your breath away for sure.
FLORENCE HOME GOURMET TUYO PASTA
Personally, I forgot to taste Florence Home Gourmet Tuyo Pasta (185 PHP) because I was really overwhelemed with the other foods but from what my friends have been raving, this is spicy and the tuyo complimented well with the pasta. I will definitely try this the next time I come back! 🙂
PAN GRILLED PEPPERED STEAK & ROSEMARY COMPOUND BUTTER
Now you think i’ve been in food coma that day, well your thinking is right! This Pan Grilled Peppered Steak & Rosemary Compound Butter (355 Php) is probably the best in their menu but I have to warn you though, this is literally lived to it’s name – it has tons of pepper! Cooked this in medium rare and my tummy would rejoice! Plus, one cup of rice. Lol
Yes! Yolks Flower Café & Cupcakery gave us food coma that day! 🙂
Let’s take a break from carbs and have a glimpse of their frappes! Basing from my friends reaction upon the first sip, I know it’s good! I tried the Caramel Frappe because hello? Caramel? Caramielrush? Get it? No? Okay.
I like how they have a wide variety of frappes & smoothies: Choco-strawberry smoothie (165 Php), Matcha Smoothie (155Php), Kiwi Smoothie (155 Php), Choco-Hazelnut Frappe (165 Php), Nutty Caramel frappe (165Php), Mocha Frappe (155Php) and many more!
Choco-Peanut Butter Freeze and Tiramisu Freeze ( 180 Php )
Remember what I told you earlier that they sell flowers too? Yolks is not only a resto but a flower shop in one. If you’re a Davaoeño, you may have heard of Eufloria PH especially if a special day. This one below is an enternal flower set (I just made that. lol)! A perfect gift on special occasions. Did you know the roses can live up to 5 years? May forever pala sa flower na to. lol
After the heavy brunch they served us bunch of treats! I forgot to take photos of the cupcakes since they surprised me with this Ultimate Chocolate Cake and a Daisy for my Birthday! How sweet of them. *u*
Owners: Michelle Robin and Chiqk Ybañez of Yolks Cafe & Cupcakery. They were so accomodating not only to us but as well as the customers during that day! Thank you for the lovely brunch Yolks!!! <3
