BACOLOD'S PRIDE: CALEA

I researched on the net before embarking on this three-location trip. One of tips I got from the discussion threads was to visit Calea, Bacolod City's newest darling. Apparently, Bacolod has got more than the usual chicken inasal. It would be an insult to Bacolod if we eat in fastfoods or miss out on local shops so we made sure we dropped by their shop along Lacson Ave. The cakes can be a little expensive than Red Ribbon (currently the favorite in major cities), but my, oh my! It's worth every centavo!


Calea's leitmotif. This is printed on top of their tables. It also appears on their boxes.

Cakes galore. Oh, my! Pecan pie! (Rhyming?) My all-time favorite.

Ice cream cake. Simply sinful. The last time I had this was when I was 7 years old.

Cream puffs. Look at the rich chocolate on top of it! I am not surprised if our brothers from Bacolod are fighting to make sure Calea never goes to Manila. At least there's one more reason to keep coming back here!
