Breakfast with the Mommas at Toast Manila

A long, leisurely breakfast is already a treat to most moms.

A long, leisurely breakfast prepared in a restaurant shared among mommy friends is a luxury!

Most often than not, breakfast is rushed or at worse, skipped. This might be the underlying reason why my mommy friends and I formed a “breakfast group”, sampling the breakfast places sprouting in our area. And I was so happy when we got invited to Toast Manila!

I’ve been really curious about this place ever since a friend posted a picture of smoked salmon atop a brioche on her feed. From there I learned that their menu is based on breakfasts from around the world.

Breakfast from around the world! America, Philippines and Norway!

If breakfast always looked this good, then I swear, I will have no complains for the rest of the day! Just look at those servings and presentation. Yup, I was one happy momma that morning, even if my little Y was fussy!

Everything was drool-worthy! But I’ll probably go back for the Norwegian because it’s salmon haha! And their homemade hollandaise sauce was smooth and not overpowering. I also liked that the tapa was in the sweet side, making me reach for more rice!

Of course, when you’ve had savory dishes, desserts are bound to follow!

Baked Bread Pudding: mangoes, salted caramel sauce, cinnamon sugar P150

Because I’m not too fond of mangoes, I went for the Champorado. The kesong puti gave it a surprising salty taste, though they can add a little bit more since the Malagos tablea made the Champorado thick. It was chocolate-y and comforting, perfect for a rainy morning! They also have specialty chocolate drinks that can pass of as dessert, like this S’mores Iced Chocolate which my husband ordered:

 It was a very filling breakfast that none of us had lunch anymore! Speaking of lunch, Toast Manila also has a lunch menu which developed from customers’ suggestions. And soon, they’ll be offering steak! Can’t wait to go back as the ambiance is perfect for a chill date night (while you get your car washed at the garage next door)
