Ara's Birthday (part 2): Dessert at The Lobby at the Manila Peninsula.

My other blog post on The Lobby at the Manila Peninsula:
The Lobby at the Manila Peninsula

My friends and I still wanted to have coffee but since Maria Luisa's Garden Room (read my blog post on Maria Luisa) closes early, we had to go somewhere that's open until late.  Of course, I suggested The Lobby at the Manila Peninsula which is a no-fail, 'open 24 hours' place that serves good breakfast, dessert, and coffee.  But I guess everyone had the same idea and we had to wait a while before getting a table.

I thought everyone was full and I was the only one craving for dessert when birthday girl Ara asked what was good there.  I suggested the fondues.  She ended up choosing the Dark Chocolate Fondue Set (P430/$10++), with the "Healthy naman kasi dark chocolate diba?".  We both laughed because we both knew we were kidding ourselves. 

All fondue sets come with a plate of assorted seasonal fruits, dark and white sponge cake, marshmallows and chocolate cigars for dipping.

Ara also got a Nutella Chocolate Fudge Brownie (P300/$6.50++) with vanilla ice cream and dark chocolate sauce.  This is too sweet for my taste.

I thought T, Ara and I were splitting the fondue and brownie but T ordered his own Banana Split.

 It seems like everyone wanted a bit of dessert as well so Ara ordered another round of Dark Chocolate Fondue.  This time, the set came with bananas but no grapes.

The place was buzzing with activity that we didn't notice the time.  It was almost 3am!  Wow.  

Thumbs Up!Good dessert and breakfast.
Open 24 hours.

Thumbs Down!
Nothing really.

This is a go-to place for me when I want to eat and everything is closed already.
