The thing with having a nearly grown-up daughter is that sometimes you want to enjoy kid stuff with her (like ice cream and milkshakes) while her tastes are evolving towards more grown-up stuff (like cocktails and nights out).
Fortunately, we found the perfect combination at the recently opened kiosk of The Lost Bread in SM East Ortigas which we chanced upon while running some errands.
The Lost Bread has its roots in Maginhawa Street in Quezon City where it found fame as a the go-to place for French toasts and milkshakes.
This branch in SM East Ortigas is basically a dessert bar where you can order masterfully prepared milkshakes, milk teas, French toast cubes and soft-serve ice cream. You can order your concoction or confection of choice at the counter and enjoy your dessert or drink in the seating area at the back, which, by the way, gets props for the wise, unusual and Instagrammable use of available space.
Now, the wonderful combination I mentioned earlier refers to the Spiked Milkshakes available at The Lost Bread (and only to those at age 18 and above). These are dessert-based milkshakes accompanied by a small syringe of liqueur that you can elect to add to your drink or not (and why would you not? Hehehe!)
My daughter #ExhibitA ordered a Swiss Missed Milkshake (Php145) which features mini marshmallows, chocolate wafers, cocoa and a bit of Kahlua.
I, on the other hand, got for myself a Spiked Cookie Milkshake (Php145), which is flavored by coffee and chocolate chip cookies plus a bit of Baileys (which just happen to be my favorite drink!)
Such a happy time spent with my daughter, indulging ourselves in our favorite sweets and a harmless but enjoyable bit of buzz from the accompanying liqueur.
I’m looking forward to coming back and trying out the store’s other dessert and drink offerings.
