I need my sugar fix and yes, I sometimes eat dessert first or simply just dessert. Heck life is short! So imagine me in Calea, the most popular dessert place in Bacolod. Like a kid in a candy store… my eyes go up and down, left to right, how do I pick one out of the 20 something choices? I simply can’t. So we were there 4 days out of the 5 that we spent in the Bacolod/Silay area. 😀
Not only is it town favorite, it has become the top pick of neighboring provinces and those in the know in Manila as well. Blue polka dots boxes of Calea goodness, to bring home as “pasalubong” (gift), are normal sights at the airport.
Their best seller, the famous (moist) Chocolate Cake is special. The icing so thick, it’s practically chewy! Never had anything like it before.
My personal favorite however, is their White Lemon Pie. Loving anything citrusy and tart… Key Lime Pie, Lemon Merengue, Lemon Torte… this came as no surprise. This pie has just the right blend of sweet and sour, the lemon filling and whipped cream makes perfect partners.
