Rabbitgirl’s Dairy Bread, Tomas Morato

Feeling hungry while working at home?

Sate your hunger with cheesy sandwiches from Rabbitgirl’s Dairy Bread!

What makes this sandwich kiosk different from other sandwich stations is its use of sourdough bread.

Considered one of the healthiest breads, sourdough bread is contains more nutrients that are usually degraded by fermentation process and is also prebiotic, making it more easily digestible than other breads.

Rabbitgirl’s Dairy Bread, Tomas Morato

During the enhanced community quarantine, Rabbitgirl’s Dairy Bread makes two of its best-selling cheese sandwiches available for pickup and delivery:

The Cheeseperience (Php90). This is Rabbitgirl’s take on the classic grilled cheese sandwich featuring rich, melted mozzarella and cheddar cheeses in a buttery sourdough toast, with a drizzle of maple honey, and served with a shot of tomato bisque.

Maple Bacon Melt (Php115). Baked bacon rashes marinated in a maple balsamic reduction, sandwiched between toasted sourdough slices and cheddar cheese, and served with a drizzle of maple honey and a shot of tomato bisque.

Rabbitgirl Dairy Bread, Tomas Morato

If you’re wondering what that tomato bisque, it is soup made with stewed fresh tomatoes, basil and carrots which serves as a tangy counterbalance to the resto’s savory sandwiches.

Of course, these sandwiches are best enjoyed when still hot and toasty, so here’s how to reheat them:

  • Sandwiches: place in the microwave oven for ten to fifteen seconds or for one to two minutes in a toaster oven.
  • Tomato Bisque: while still in its reusable cup, place in a container with a little bit of hot water and into the microwave oven for 15 seconds

Thanks to Harvard of AlwaysHungry.PH for sharing from his snack stash!

Dean & DeLuca, Tomas Morato

This past November, Dean & DeLuca opened its newest branch in Quezon City.

This much-awaited outlet is notable for many things, not the least of which is the fact that it is owned by actress (and idol of the titas) Bea Alonzo.

“Good old coffee. Just what I need today.” she posted on her Instagram.

(Oh, Bea… don’t we all?)

Dean & DeLuca started as a chain of upscale grocery stores in New York City but has since evolved into cafe operations. Its first three branches in the country are located in Makati and BGC, with more in the works.

This past Tuesday, my officemates and I made our way to QC’s Dean & DeLuca, a five-minute car ride from our workplace, for our lunch break.

With the exception of the guys who joined us for the midday meal, this bunch consisted mostly of titas, who all have been looking forward to dining at Dean & DeLuca.

Our orders included:

Truffle Fries (Php160). Crispy French fries drizzled with truffle oil and sprinkled with grated parmesan before serving with a creamy zesty dip.

Dean & DeLuca, Tomas Morato

Aglio e Olio Gamberini (Php450). Organic pasta tossed in traditional Italian garlic and olive oil base along with prawns and cherry tomatoes.

Dean & DeLuca, Tomas Morato

Prawn and Gorgonzola Pasta (Php495). Organic pasta tossed in a creamy paprika wine sauce along with fresh prawns, gorgonzola cheese, mushroom and basil.

Dean & DeLuca, Tomas Morato

Butifarra con Salsa Funghi e Tartufo (Php470). Organic pasta tossed in truffle cream along with slices of Butifarra sausage and fresh mushrooms.

Dean & DeLuca, Tomas Morato

Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich (Php380). Free-range chicken, grated cheese pimiento, pickled dill, slaw and dressing in yeast-free sourdough bread.

Dean & DeLuca, Tomas Morato

Umami Fried Chicken (Php390). Aburi fried chicken, miso glaze, slaw and lettuce in sourdough brioche.

Dean & DeLuca, Tomas Morato

Beef Rendang (Php590). Himalayan red rice topped with grass-fed beef cooked in rendang spice and coconut milk.

Dean & DeLuca, Tomas Morato

After lunching on these food items, we capped our meal with our chosen coffee drinks – Salted Caramel Latte, Cafe Latte and Cappuccino – all priced at Php160 each.

Dean & DeLucca does tick off all the marks when it comes to trendy cuisine (eg. grass-fed beef, free-range chicken, organic pasta, etc.) which I’m sure many foodies will appreciate.

Sadly, given its price points, I’m not as impressed as I hoped I would be when it came to my truffle pasta which I found too heavily flavored. My friends told me that I simply ordered the wrong item from the menu but how can I go wrong with ordering one of my favorite pasta dishes?

Oh, well. Maybe when I try the desserts on my next visit I’ll have a better experience!

Plus, my officemates and I still had a chill “tita-ish” lunch break here.
