And with us having arrived a little later than expected, we decided to have an early dinner before heading on for home. Our choice? Why, Swensen's®, of course.

I may probably be the last person in Manila to try a BonChon chicken (read my crazy post at this here link), but I can definitely say I'm not the last person to have tasted a Swensen's® meal. Haven't tried them in Manila though, but here in Singapore, it's one of the Husband's and my favorite restaurants. In fact, we've been frequent patrons since 2008.
Although Swensen's® is well-known for their creamy desserts, it's their savory meals that keep us coming back again and again. Here are just a few of our favorites:
Creamy Mushroom Soup
A really creamy soup made from Shiitake and button mushrooms. A good way to start your meal.

Teriyaki Chicken Pasta (S$16.90 / Php557.70*)
Grilled chicken thigh in sweet teriyaki sauce served with spaghetti and a side of vegetables.

The noodles are lightly coated in oil (olive, me thinks) and sprinkled with a few herbs. Compliments the tasty chicken perfectly. It's sweet and savory and delicious!
Crabmeat Fried Rice (S$14.90 / Php491.70*)
I usually have the baked rice dishes at Swensen's® (definite bestsellers, too) but for this trip, we decided to have the Crabmeat fried rice for a change.

A traditional fried rice meal with crispy battered soft shell crab on top. Never regreted it; not even for a minute.
Swensen's® Banana Split (around S$9.00 / Php297* a serving)
And this being Swensen's®, it was only but fitting that we ended our meal with ice cream -- 3 scoops of it in the form of a luscious, creamy Banana split.
|Swensen's® Banana Split|
Classic ice cream flavors of vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate topped with a generous helping of whipped cream and almonds, and garnished with a banana and a cherry. Yum! (Note: select outlets also offer an all-you-eat ice cream and dessert buffet too, for those with really vicious sweet tooths -- like me!!!)
So you see, Swensen's® can deliver some really tasty meals, too. J
