For those in the know (a.k.a. older generation), the Magnolia House was an institution that rewarded the good children with melty desserts after dinner and fond times with family and friends. I was one of those who mourned when it finally closed its doors a few years ago.
So imagine my glee when I found out that the Magnolia Flavor House has been resurrected! It is now located at Robinson's Magnolia in New Manila, Quezon City. Standing in the center of the mini-park, it is a glorious sight that promises of sweet, sweet desserts and new memories to be made.
I guess I wasn't the only one anticipating of its opening. It was almost a full house with tables of dating couples, young parents and their children, senior citizens and groups of teenagers. I can just imagine young parents introducing Magnolia Flavor House to their children, a new generation of little sweet-toothed customers.
Apart from desserts, the new Magnolia Flavor House also had its offerings of savory dishes. Their Buffalo Wings (php260) were on the sweet rather than the hot and tangy side, so it is more kid-friendly. We were approached the manager who asked whether we preferred the sour cream or blue cheese dip. I liked the latter.
Good ol' mac and cheese (php210) with crispy bacon toppings. It comes to the table hot, forming strings of cheese when you take a serving. Mmmm...
The Four Cheese Pizza (php290) was had a crispy, thin crust that I liked. The cheese topping was quite salty for me though, but cheese aficionados like my sister would love this, especially when eaten with drops of Tabasco.
