Secret Recipe

Secret Recipes is a cafe-cum-bakery which originated from Malaysia since 1997. They offer more than 40 types of cakes and pastries and over 20 types of fusion food – a blend of specialty food from different countries

Irish Lamb Stew  

Irish Lamb Stew Php430 – The menu says its one of their award-winning items. I would not say it really is Irish based cooking , there was a tinge of Chinese influence there. But it’s still pretty good stew with the meat being tender, ditto for the mashed potatoes!

Prawn Macaroni with Cheese 

Prawn macaroni with cheese Php280 – I liked it. Butter and cheese based. Didn’t scrimp on the gooey cheese and prawns on top of the pasta.

 Tom Yum Goong

Noodle in Tom Yum Kung Php240 – I’m impressed. For the price of Php340, the tom yum goong comes with two king sized prawns. Noodles are al dente, I like them this way! The soup broth has also the right mix of herbs to give it an authentic taste.

Tom Yum Spaghetti Php180 – Tom Yum lovers would love this. Its Tom Yum flavored meat sauce pasta which is very intriguing.

Secret Recipe Cakes

Banana Chocolate cake Php110 – Multi layered sponge cake with banana bits in between mixed with banana flavored choco mouse. Very interesting mix and good.

Marble Cheesecake Php110 – Our waiter recommended this saying the marble cheesecake is the base for all of their cheesecakes. Balanced flavours, not too sour , not too creamy. The base of the cheesecake is made of oatmeal.

Secret Recipes imports all their cheesecakes from Malaysia. I guess they really are secret recipes! Only the sponge cakes and bars are baked in Manila.

Summary : Secret Recipes is someplace I would go to for good cakes and Asian meals with a twist. Prices are affordable without scrimping on the quality. They have around 100 branches already in Asia so they must be doing something right. The food is consistent. It tastes the same as when I tried out Secret Recipes in Malaysia.
