Salted caramel cheesecake. It was an epiphany.

Gadakop dakop ang katam-is ug ang kaparat.

The famous sylvanas

Salty. Sweet. Salty, Sweet. Salty… Sweet.. And when it lingered in my palate, I had my epiphany.

My sense of taste just had its awakening as the sweetness and saltiness, both basic tastes, were playing inside my mouth, tickling the taste buds and all I can do is surrender to such an awesome experience. Couple this with the texture of the base with the smooth texture of the cheesecake and you have a great memory of the dessert that will just linger in your mind.

I’m a clear sucker for cheesecakes, my achilles’s heel, and when I visited the main branch of Sans Rival Cakes & Pastries along San Jose St. in Dumaguete City, it caught my fancy. Priced at P110, it was one of the more expensive items on display but memories of such powerful taste sensations, first tasted in ice cream of the same flavor, was enough for me to chose it.

And I never looked back.

    I actually like the “I never looked back” part. Truly an epiphany if it tastes as sinful as it looks! I have had my fair share of cheesecake and I guess, this is something new. alam ko merong mga rock salted drinks, never thought it would be fantastic with desert. =)
