It's very rare that I'm at the Super South Side of the Metro since I'm so lazy from moving anywhere outside my comfort zone. But when me and some friends were invited to have dinner at ACACIA HOTEL, I thought, there was no other destined time for me to hit 2 birds with 1 stone by also checking out my new cupcake favorite, KAT'S CAFE.
I first encountered the creamy goodness of KAT'S CAFE, when we were given boxes upon boxes during our epic staycation in B HOTEL. Now several months have passed and even if I have already tasted other cupcake variants from this, this, and oh this, I was still craving for the very moist and fluffy deliciousness that only KAT'S CAFE cupcakes could give.
And so with that, I reached into my dark side and convinced my flabbiness that even if I already had dessert and coffee at ACACIA HOTEL, my life needed more of the sweetness of KAT'S CAFE. I then contacted Kathi of Mucking Around Manila to say that we'll be somewhere near her place and asked if she wanted to meet up. Turns out, she too was hankering for some my revered cupcakes.
So you see? It was really our sugary destiny to be graced with the lusciousness of KAT'S CAFE that stormy Saturday night. And believe me, nothing gives me a happier weekend than being able to taste and conquer a craving like that from KAT'S CAFE.
KAT'S CAFE was actually near ACACIA HOTEL, but traffic was horrendous that night so we got there after about an hour. The Chinese Adonis and I also had a hard time looking for the restaurant because it was within a subdivision and we were so unfamiliar with Las Pinas. Even if Kathi said to look for a "well lit cupcake", we still cannot find it!
Good thing that KAT'S CAFE is moving to Robinson's Place Las Pinas at October 25, 2014. SO YEY! At least it won't be as hard to look for my luscious cupcakes the next time we're at the South!
In the KAT'S CAFE branch where we went to, there was a different area to order coffee and another for the cupcakes.
There were also some nummy for our tummy pastries in this part of KAT'S CAFE but I'll get to that later.
Both restaurants share that playful vibe that gets you marveling at some of their items!
Like what restaurant would put a Ferrari and a topdown side by side huh?
If you're a happy customer, leave a note and make KAT'S CAFE's day!
There's no rush though. Because in KAT'S CAFE, you could grab one of their magazines to read while enjoying that cup of hot coffee!
Such beautiful words!
KAT'S CAFE red oven! I'm not sure if they used this though.

I know I said that you should barge in at KAT'S CAFE demanding for cupcakes but please, do try their creampuffs as well!
These KAT CAFE Red Velvet Cream Puff (P37/ P175.00) are so delectable!
The KAT'S CAFE Nutella Cream Puff (P32 / P150.00) are worth the calories as well!
I'm so confused because the KAT'S CAFE Caramel Cream Puff (P27 / P125.00) were so good too!
We met up Kathi and Jericho (TASTY PIXEL PHOTOGRAPHY) at the other side of KAT'S CAFE.
This was around 12:00 midnight. Almost the closing time of KAT'S CAFE!
KAT'S CAFE here is very well lit, vibrant, and playful! I love that their mini restaurant is also a feast for the eyes and the TV buff in you. Hopefully their new branch will have the same fun atmosphere!
I don't know about you but I'm digging this clock...
SAVE THE CLOCK TOWER... of cupcakes. He he he he!
Something tells me the owners of KAT'S CAFE are fans of Dr. Who.
The loo even has a phone! He he he he! Now besides Dr. Who, this restroom could be very useful for the dudes from The Matrix! He he he he!
I wonder if their new branch will have a route to Baker Street? HMMM?
Is it just me or do these porcelain cupcakes from KAT'S CAFE make your mouth water too?
There's that red oven again!
KAT'S CAFE interiors are shouting date place everywhere!
You know the place you daydream of where your High School crush would take you and you'll be sweety patootsie that it's sickening?
Boo hoo! Time to order.
KAT'S CAFE luscious cupcakes with creamy toppings everywhere!
BUT! Just in case you're not in the mood for some cupcakes (ahem...loser... ahem), you could also order from their simple menu.

Our server for the night was always smiling even if we were there at closing time. I'm sure he hasn't seen the movie "WAITING"!
KAT'S CAFE served this rich butter sponge cake that were moist and ultra "buttery".
This went so perfect with my hot KAT'S CAFE Grand Cafe Mocha (P130.00)
My ultraelectromagneticPOGIpop husband got the KAT'S CAFE Grand Belgian Chocolate (P130.00).
I'm not sure what Kathi got but anything seems delicious when served in a mason jar! Ha ha ha ha!
Remember the awesome KAT'S CAFE Cream Puffs I was telling you about earlier? Here they are drizzled with sweet sauce!
KAT'S CAFE Caramel....
Cream puff insides.... Oooooh......
KAT'S CAFE Nutella Cream Puff!
KAT'S CAFE Red Velvet Cream Puff!
ERICJAZ FOODIES with Kathi and Jericho! It was great seeing my foodie friends after a loooong time!
Now enough about them (Ha ha ha!)... Let's get to the KAT'S CAFE Cupcakes!!!
KAT'S CAFE Death By Chocolate (P65.00) is definitely fudgy but without that cloying taste. You'd want to have one forkful of the rich moist cake one after the other!
KAT'S CAFE Fruit and Nutella Cupcake (P65.00) was very reminiscent of Cadbury's Fruit and Choco! Oh yum!
KAT'S CAFE Cheesecake Crumble (P65.00) gave that delectable experience of eating a cheesecake!
Our KAT'S CAFE table filled with food!
My husband loved the cupcakes but the KAT'S CAFE butter cake was something he never had before!
It was great catching up with Kathi again!
What are YOU looking at huh?
I forgot what you call these dolls but I always wanted one after I saw an episode of Sesame Street.
That was like.... a year ago?
KIDDING!!! He he he he!
And YOHOOOO! I got a box of my favorite KAT'S CAFE cupcakes!!!! Now I'm in real dessert heaven!
OH DEAR ME!
(l-r top - Fruit and Nutella, Mango and Pistachio, and Cookie Dough)
(l-r - bottom - Blueberry Cheesecake, Midnight Cookie, and Oreo Cupcake)
It has all of my favorites!!!! That KAT'S CAFE Mango and Pistachio IS THE BEST! It was my favorite the last time and I'll be burying my face in it later on.
Thank you so much Chef Katrece Gamo (the genius creator of KAT'S CAFE cupcakes) for having ERICJAZ FOODIES and for the box of wonderful cupcakes!
Of course, super kaduper thanks to Kathi for treating us to cupcakes!!! To think I was the one who asked you out to KAT'S CAFE. Ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!
By the way, when I said CUPCAKES I meant the mouth watering ones baked by Chef Kat in KAT'S CAFE ha? And not the other cupcakes I'm seeing. HA HA HA HA HA!
