Sweet Wanderings at “The Dessert Museum”
“Dessert is like a feel-good song and the best ones make you dance.” ~Chef Edward Lee~
My being enthralled with Broadway hits is something I always look forward to every year, this time, we booked earlier to watch “Lion King Manila” in celebration of their 50th show, which is set here in my country, at Solaire Hotel just a few blocks away from Conrad Hotel where “The Dessert Museum” is located.
Jen as always, supports me with my fascination, she secured us 2 seats months ago and I am thankful for her to do such things for me, however, there is a tweak that I sometimes need to give support to her whims too. And while waiting for our slots for that night’s show, she brought me first to “The Dessert Museum”.
Obviously, said place is meant for the young ones like her, not that I’m admitting to the fact that I am no longer that young, but even with what I’m wearing, I could have gone there in a more comfortable clothes or could have worn flat shoes or even rubber shoes. Well, that is what friends are for.
The museum is for kids at heart, curated for this popular and very influential generation: The Millennials who would immediately post their experiences via photos or videos on their social media accounts. Most of them would refer to it as “Instagrammable” or Instagram worthy shots. =)
In less than an hour, we were able to wander inside this candy-like museum and honestly, I enjoyed it too. Specifically loving the pastel colors all around me, it felt sweet. =)
To set expectations, you will wander on eight (8) themed rooms which are as follows:
– Candy canes
– Ice cream
– Bubble gum
– Cotton candy (The sweetest room and my favorite!)
– Gummy bears
Six of the 8 rooms come with a free dessert and my favorite is the marshmallow in two different flavors which you will get a chance to dip it yourself either from their purple yam (ube flavor) and strawberry fountain. Oh, I think it is what I like best and the cotton candy too and the macarons.
There are attendants to brief you before the adventure begins. It felt exciting at that time. Out of excitement, I was in between listening attentively to the guide and saying “Come on let’s go!” Since it is literally something new. Each of the themed rooms are manned by attendants who will sweetly offer you your choice of a free dessert before they lead you to the next room. They are there to assist you from the first to the last of all the 8 rooms. It wasn’t just fun but educational as well. That free dessert? That was my most favorite part. =) The sweet tooth that I’ve always been.
Your last stop will be shopping. There are good finds in their Souvenir shop (food and Non-food). But we wouldn’t want to be late on our next stop right? So maybe next time. =)
The Dessert Museum is located at unit 124, 126, 127a, Coral way, S Maison Mall, Conrad Hotel, Manila, MOA, Pasay City
Find time to visit this one of a kind museum and surely, you will find it very entertaining and of course sweet. =) There is also a system that they implemented where each guest(s) or group(s) will truly enjoy said museum by making it not that crowded, allowing you to maximize your time taking photos and enjoying the activity itself. I find it very organized. You can actually book online, via this link: https://www.thedessertmuseum.com/howtobook/
