From the French word meaning “to clear the table”, dessert is the last course being served after a good and hearty meal, mapa-lunch man iyan o dinner.
There are a lot of desserts variations being served on many tables today, from cakes and pastries, ice cream, hot and cold drinks, to the all-time Pinoy desserts na halo-halo, mais-con-yelo and the likes.
Kaya nga we listed down a few places that would bring you desserts in case you crave for one kahit dis oras ng kainan.
