Bigg's Dessert Storm: Choco Perfection, Pili Frustration

Bigg's Diner's Dessert Storm
Choco Perfection, Pili Frustration

Biggs’ Diner is an iconic and
authentic Bicolano restaurant,

…and I have blogged about

I have written reviews of the dishes they offer
from all day breakfast fares,

…to their extreme  burgers,

…and their bestsellers.

It may not be my list for my favorite restaurants
that I would rave and gloriously exalt,


…but  it the first one always comes
to our mind  whenever we are in a hurry
and need fast , affordable  and tasty food.

Last weekend, after a hearty
late afternoon lunch at Bigg’s Centro,


We ordered some of their classic
desserts like their iconic
Kookie Monster Chocolate Cake.

This delicious cake is made up of
two layers of moist rich chocolate cakes
glued with a creamy sweet custard
and caramel in between,

…and coated with rich and
creamy chocolate  icing.
This very, very  delicious
chocolate cake Is to die for.

The Bigg’s Carrot Cake was okay.
Its texture had  a perfect grittiness and
just the right amount of sweetness
making it a ‘healthier’ alternative
to the sinful chocolate cake.

Their new Pili Pie was a disappointment.
The tart tasted more of a coarse and sugary
version of custard pie, rather than that of a pili
and it was topped with a scoop of ice cream.

The Pili Tart being sold by the vendors
on the street was creamier, less sugary 
and even tasted a lot better.
