Ice Cream date at Swensen's in SM Mall of Asia

Daniel, my husband, told me to get an ice cream after my Physical Therapy session that day. Together with Mary Jane and Mom, we went straight to SM Mall of Asia to try something new. Yes, it’s something new that has been bothering me for days. hahaha

I saw a friend of mine posted a photo of an ice cream on Facebook – a beautiful looking ice cream. She told me it’s from Swensen’s. I have no idea about the place. So I did my research and found out that it’s actually a quite old ice cream chain that was established by Earle Swensen in San Francisco, California back 1948. It now has hundreds of stores in Asia, including the Philippines. Knowing that it is an American ice cream got me more curious, so we decided to give it a try.

I ordered Oreo Brownie (Php265.00). This is a crispy waffle basket served with chunky brownies, Oreo cookies and banana top with almonds and chocolate sauce. It is simply the perfect treat, and really a must try.

Mom ordered Oreo Cookies'n Cream (Php265.00). This is a cookies'n cream ice cream with hot fudge and Oreo cookies. The name alone drives me crazy. hahaha! ^_^

Mary Jean ordered Banana Split (Php270.00). This is a combination of Strawberry, Vanilla and Chocolate ice cream on banana with strawberry jam, pineapple jam, chocolate fudge and almonds. I always loved how banana split looks like.

Swensen’s is probably one of the best ice cream parlors I have been to in the Philippines. When I walked into the shop, I became a kid again. They have beautiful ambiance, and a wide variety of sundaes to choose from which leaves you wondering which one to pick. They also serve coffee and shakes just in case. The staff is really helpful. The price is leaning towards the higher end but when you are in a mood for some best sundaes, this is the place to be. I will definitely return here. I highly recommend this place to all my friends!
