Flavors of June

June 15, 2017

The month of June finally kicks off once again. As the other hemisphere welcomes the happy-go-lucky days of summer, this side of the globe, conversely, hails the mawkish, drenched monsoon. Included in the seemingly melancholic insinuations of the season is the dyed-in-the-wool school blues. Yes, school! Talk about endless projects and grueling tests. Nothing has ever changed on the habitual cycles of academic undertakings since starting thirteen years ago.

Since academic undertakings are my topmost priority (one last push before the cap and gown!), perhaps I might lie low from the extensive endeavors for this blog. Nevertheless, I plan to update the blog at least once a month (*cross fingers*).

To ease the anticipatory burden of dyed-in-the-wool school blues, there’s no better than to make the most of the time before another academic year resumes. And, the ever comforting victuals have got our backs. As the city becomes a culinary draw, there are still a lot of local fares to be experienced. Thus, I missioned myself to be constantly abreast on best holes-in-the-wall the city has to offer.

Maison de Bonbon Café and Restaurant

The French-inspired counterpart of The Nest’s food and drink haven has become the deluxe edition of Missy Bonbon, offering a slice of French gourmet. The menu ranges from entrees, soups and salads, sandwiches and cakes, to notre specialties, crepe savoureux, and crepe doux.
Beef Bourguignon. An assortment of tender chuck beef, puff pastry, button mushrooms, and caramelized onions.
Chicken Supreme. A treat of lean chicken breast plus a gravy infused with various herbs and spices.

The Hungry Plate

To complete our meal, we headed to this pluralistic diner which offers casual dining of American, Latin, and Tex-Mex favorites. Its menu boasts a variety of burgers, steaks, salads, soups, seafood, craft beers, and, of course, the reason why we went, its Instagram-worthy desserts.
Frozen Oreo. A mouth-watering sweet course of layers of cookies and cream ice cream and chocolate cake, festooned with chocolate chips, caramel and chocolate syrup, coffee powder, and, to top all of that, a white Magnum bar.
Blonde Ala Mode. A generous slice of butterscotch paired with vanilla ice cream and drizzles of chocolate and caramel syrups.

If you can’t still recover from the school blues, then, Maison de Bonbon and The Hungry Plate, definite hits in my book, got our backs to replace those desolation into high spirits. Be sure to check out Maison de Bon Café and Restaurant and The Hungry Plate both situated at Corrales Ave, Cagayan de Oro, with operating hours of 7 am to 10 pm and 7 am to 12 am, respectively.
