Boneless Crispy Pata at Dessert Factory in Ayala Center Cebu

We had lunch at Dessert Factory and really enjoyed the meal offerings available from their menu. The name itself suggests that the specialty are cakes, sweets and other desserts, but this cafe also has plenty of food items that can rival other restaurants in Cebu.

Located at the 2nd level of the Terraces in Ayala Center Cebu, Dessert Factory has long been a favorite among Cebuanos for their desserts. But my wife and I would keep visiting the restaurant whenever we are craving for pork, just because we feel that their boneless crispy pata is top-notch!

Dining at Dessert Factory in the Terraces of Ayala Cebu

In another foodtrip feature, we would like to recommend the pork knuckles meal of Dessert Factory. During our stay in Cebu, we visited the restaurant about 3 times, and each time we ordered this delicious (and dangerous – highblood lol) meal.

To be honest, we initially planned on dining at Casa Verde which is just opposite of Dessert Factory. But there were plenty of people there and we did not want to wait in line so we ended up eating at the latter.

Boneless Crispy Pata

I remember actually eating their Boneless Crispy Pata 6 to 7 years back and enjoyed it then. This time they are still consistent with the taste and crispiness of the fried dish. There’s two servings, medium and large, of course, we chose the bigger one.

Consistency in taste and serving, this is one thing i noticed during three instances we dined at Dessert Factory branches ( two at their Ayala branch and once at their SRP branch).

Grilled Pork Belly

During another lunch time, another meal we ordered was the Grilled Pork Belly. My brother had this one and this is also good.

Mango Shake – Mango Slush

Another thing we also recommend you ordering is their fresh and sweet mango slush shake. I normally inquire if the shakes are really ripe. After all, we are in Cebu where mangoes are a staple fruit.

I’m a bit picky when ordering shakes because sometimes they are not as ripe as I want them to be. But I was really satisfied with it. Order the one without the milk to really enjoy the ripeness. 🙂

While the main highlight of our lunch were the ones above, we also ordered a few other dishes, which included the Factory Salad for appetizer, another pork meal – Grilled pork belly (really good also!) and Seafood Puttanesca.
