Let’s do something different every Monday and let’s call it Make It Your Own Monday, aka M.I.Y.O Monday.
I dread Mondays and if you’re anything like me, you itch to make it better. So I’ve come up with M.I.Y.O Monday, where once a week, I’ll ask you, DCF reader, a question or ask you to post a photo. I want to hear what you people have to say and the more you say, the better and more varied the posts become here on DCF.
Over the weekend, a DCF reader sent me an email with the subject heading: Hidden Cake Spot. My spine straightened in anticipation and goosebumps formed on my arms. He gave very detailed instructions on how to get to this particular cake spot and without thinking, I jumped into my car and drove there.
But the place was closed. On Sunday. (Photo above). Oy, frustration!
Because it was just about the lunch hour when I got to Cake Planet, I drove down Doña Soledad looking for a place to eat. I didn’t find any and frankly, it wasn’t a landscape that inspired optimism. Most places were shuttered and I wasn’t going to default on a Sunday meal by settling for Red Ribbon or McDonald’s. In the end, I ended up going back home and eating there.
So tell me, DCF readers in the South: Are there any good eats in Bicutan? For those of you who live or work in or frequent the area, where do you go to eat? Or are there any places like the much-recommended Cake Planet where I can buy food to take out? I refuse to believe that all the good eats are farther down in Sucat along President’s Avenue and Aguirre Avenue!
Stick your recommendations in the Comments section below. I’m eager to hear what you have to say. And I’m going back to Cake Planet sometime this week. DCF tipster RJ tells me that their Chocolate Macadamia Sans Rival and a forgot-the-name cake sandwiched with walnuts and meringue and topped with ganache is the best he’s ever had.
