When I suggested for a quick meet-up with #TheBusyWomen as a sort of a "welcome dinner" for one of our friends who had her last day at work last month, my friend #Trishia quickly mentioned the newly opened store, Cheesecakes by Guy. We call it "welcome dinner" not "despedida" - the kind of dinner we (#TeamIcebergs) had during my last day at work (two of my dearest friends came over to join us for dinner), and the same thing that we did for the other friends who resigned. It is sort of a ritual to welcome the resignee to the happier life outside work. :)
So, we had our welcome dinner at Cheesecakes by Guy. It was not even a dinner since I was the only one who ordered a decent meal that night. I had the Chicken Sandwich that is worth-raving!
Before I go to the main meal, some snap shots of the store.
I love this corner

Now, the food..
The Grilled Sandwich (Php 250)
One of the best Grilled Sandwiches I have tasted. I rarely order sandwiches, and I was happy I hit a jackpot on this meal. Slabs of chicken meat with generous basil in olive spread. Fresh salad with crisp green and tomatoes!
I am no fan of Red Velvet Cheesecake, but this slice is a good deal for its price. I wish to try the Quezo De Bola and Barako Cheesecake soon. Will update this post for the feature :)
Macchiato (Php 125)
It is still a mystery for me why most coffee shops serve the macchiato in tall glasses like this. :) Macchiato is an espresso drink with a little milk and foam. If you want a cafe latte, this will not disappoint :)
Cheesecakes by Guy, as the name implies serves mostly cheesecakes. The menu is limited to
pasta omelettes (sorry, I was dreaming of pasta ;)) and sandwiches. This is a good place for dessert and quick dates.
Hopefully, #TheBusyWomen can meet up again soon so we can try the other cheesecakes. That is, if we are not too busy.
Have you tried anything from the Cheesecakes by Guy?
