One of the main reasons why I would want to go back to Bacolod is for their delectable desserts. People I know would attest to that since they too had tasted some of the finest desserts Bacolod can offer. One of the stores known for their delightful cakes and pastries in Bacolod is Calea.
Calea is a household name cake shop in Bacolod because of the great selections of their quality cakes and succulent pastries. You can really notice the distinction of its premium ingredients from regular homemade and fast food cakes. The look of every cake in the display entices you to come and taste the uniqueness in each.
I had my first taste of Calea cake last year and I was engulfed by its fine allure. It was a regular chocolate cake but rich in sweet chocolate and even became sweeter when I tasted the smoothly mixed icing on the sides. Right then, Calea will always be a part of my Bacolod Itinerary.
After a few hours exploring some prominent spots in Bacolod and finishing the second round stroll in Robinsons Place Bacolod, we decided to take a rest and opt with a slice of cake in Calea. The shop is located just beside the main entrance of the Robinson’s Mall. The area is quite small, probably fitting five to six groups of people, but it was very cozy and cool inside.
Calea’s Oreo Cheescake
We were undecided yet with the wide variety of appetizing cakes in front of us. We settled first for a slice of Oreo cheesecake since after an hour or so, we will be having our lunch. At first look, the Oreo cheesecake slice looks divine. It has some Oreo bits mixed with the cheesecake and have some toppings scattered on top.
The first taste was really good. The cheesecake was well blended and you can truly savor the premium ingredients they used for the cheesecake. But, like any other cheesecake, you can seem to get enough if you had enough of it.
We also ordered another slice of cake, which they simply call White Cake (see first photo above). It looks like your regular chiffon cake with white icing surrounding it. However, you can be proved wrong when you see that the inside is not a mere regular chiffon cake. It is intact and dense with bits of real almonds and chocolate in almost every side of the cake. The taste is not very sweet but can neutralize the sweet taste of an Oreo cake. Although we only had two slices of cake for the two of us, we seem to have enough of sweetness.
