Who can resist a 10% discount coupon for a foodie person like me who have never been to Fleur de Lys? So, we headed to Tomas Morato to get our taste of Fleur de Lys. Thanks to Lori for offering this discount to all DCF readers this month of August. Hmmn…. I was wondering when could I ever give a discount like that through OAP (naks). (Mental note: I should try using that acronym some more…) I also have a lot of readers who continuously recommend Fleur de Lys.
Unfortunately, the famous strawberry pie was not available and we were not able to try out the meringue dessert, Pavlova Picasso. So we were left with the Jackie Ang-po’s best sellers: Macademia pie, the Next Best Thing, and the latest, Dulce & Gabanna tart. The names were indeed interesting and the first time I realized that the names plus presentation could influence your taste buds. At the end of the meal, we did not find the desserts particularly special. Maybe it is just me. But I wouldn’t drive to this place all the way from Makati. Certainly, it is the best dessert place so far in the Tomas Morato area since i don’t frequent this area so often.
Fleur De Lys is located beside the Belo medical clinic (what a good complement), and in front of Virgin Cafe. The counter is quite small and the desserts greet you with open arms as you enter. The pink menus are very engaging and you can see the entire place was designed to lure you and you will easily give in to the temptation.
Nuts About You (Macadamia Nut Pie with Pistachio Ice Cream) — P108 / slice. P98 net with a DCF coupon 🙂
We like this better than the other two. I really love the macadamia + pistachio taste! Although the thin crust was crunchy, we felt that it lack in taste.
Nothing special. We were expecting that the warm cake together with the cold vanilla ice cream would be a good complement, but it failed to meet expectations. Well I must admit, maybe it is unfair to compare this with Lemuria’s Valrohna chocolate souffle cake.
We only liked the banana inside.
Overall, the experience was OK and I was hoping to taste the strawberry pie and meringue dessert next time.
