Mango Cheesecake from Calea Pastries and Coffee

A very good pasalubong treat from Bacolod City.


My wife had a 10 – day field work at Bacolod City. She arrived last June 30 and brought me this very delicious mango cheesecake from Calea Pastries and Coffee:

Pat & Sam Delicacies and Pasalubong

Pat & Sam is to Cavite what Rowena’s is to Tagaytay City

After a short corporate social responsibility activity in Caridad, Cavite, our host gave us some food treats for us to eat on our way to Manila, bought from Pat & Sam Delicacies and Pasalubong Store. I was not able to taste as it was the month of Ramadhan and I was fasting, but my office mates told me that it was delicious. We then decided to buy for our loved ones in Manila.

Currently they have two (2) stores in Cavite. One is in Caridad while the other is in Kawit. Below are the addresses and contact numbers of each store:

  1. 506 Padre Pio St., Caridad, Cavite City • Tel #(046) 431 2356 • Mobile # (0922) 825 7915; and
  2. Chef Ron’s Native Deli and Sweets, EPZA Diversion Road., Brgy Potol, Kawit, Cavite • Tel # (046) 686 1805 • Mobile # (0908) 440 4171.

We bought at the second store as we were on our way back to Manila. To help you locate the store, just use the Waze application and input there “Café 506”. That’s how we found the place.  Per query with the saleslady, they don’t have delivery service, only for pick up.

If you have been to a Rowena’s store in Tagaytay City, the set – up of the Pat & Sam outlet store here is similar. In fact, I would say that Pat & Sam is to Cavite what Rowena’s is to Tagaytay. They sell a lot of native Filipino pasalubong treats such as the cassava cake. I forgot to take a picture of their menu but I ordered a sapin – sapin.


Sapin-sapin is a layered glutinous rice and coconut dessert in Philippine cuisine. It is made from rice flour, coconut milk, sugar, water, and coloring with coconut flakes sprinkled on top.

I only ordered one (1) because there were 2 of us who would eat it – me and my wife. My office mates though bought many.

Suffice it to say that she liked my pasalubong, which is already an achievement as she is very picky with her food. We did not finish it though as being made from rice, it is quite heavy in the stomach.

My verdict: Try the different pasalubong treats of Pat & Sam. You will like it.

Welcome to TastySights!

A blog about food and travel from someone who does not like to travel much and not picky about food.

Welcome to TastySights!

First allow me to introduce myself. I am joyousfacts, 30 years old, Filipino, male, and happily married for 1 year and counting. I am a lawyer by profession.

What is this blog site all about you may ask. Well this blog is about food and travel. The name is tastysights, derived from tasty (food) and sights (place). Though from time to time I may write about some things off topic, particularly probably about legal stuff considering that I am a lawyer.

Just to clarify, I am not particular with food. Neither am I a travel junkie. It is my wife who is very particular with food and the one who loves to travel. However, she does not want to write a blog about it. So I took the initiative to start this blog site.

I first shared my reviews on hotels and restaurants in tripadvisor, around November 2015 after our honeymoon in Japan. I have an account there. I just felt some form of satisfaction the moment I received my first helpful vote. Currently, I have two. I then realized that I can probably help more travelers if I just create my own blog. Further, I can get to control the creative side of it. There will be challenges of course, but I think it’s worth a try. I am confident that I can keep the contents rolling as my wife really loves food and travel. You can say that it is really her who runs this blog, and I am just the medium.

Just to explain the name, it is a combination of my nickname and my wife’s. I just made some “creative” modifications there to come up with the name.

There you have it. My short introduction. I will try to post here on a weekly basis.

Thanks for reading!
