ULTIMATE TASTE TEST 3.0 RATING: 3.8 out of 5.0 - OVERALL WINNER!
Dulcelin was the overall winner for Ultimate Taste Test 1.0 with a 4.6 rating and it also topped Ultimate Taste Test 3.0 with a 3.8 rating!
Dulcelin is best known for its Mango Torte (its closest competitor is Tony Cuerva's Mango Torte). But now, Dulcelin has proven twice in UTT 1.0 (with 100 foodies) and in UTT 3.0 (with 260 foodies) that it is the Best Gourmet Home-Based Business for Savory Dishes, Meats and Specialty Desserts.
The Wagyu Tri-tip, Belly Roast Beef and Cannelloni were given the thumbs-up by foodies. The Lola's Chicken Relleno got mixed reactions and only a few people raved about it. This pulled down the rating to below 4.0 levels.
For dessert, Dulcelin's Strawberry Cake, Callebaut Chocolate Ganache Cake and, of course, the Mango Torte are all winners! They have a special way of making any dessert sweet and rich, but still light enough to enjoy.
For this Christmas Season, Our Awesome Planet highly recommends Dulcelin Gourmet Specialties. :)
The Dulcelin Story
by Ricky Morelos
Dulcelin started way back in the early '90s as a Christmas-only venture, selling mostly fruit cakes, ensaymadas, and pies. In 2001, we started selling mango tortes, which became such a big success that the business became a year-round affair. Our dessert line up includes such popular items as the Strawberry Cake, Chocolate Ganache Cake, Irish Cream Butter Cake and many others. Our adherence to using quality ingredients such as dairy cream, butter, and real chocolate has ensured that our products maintain their true homemade appeal.
Aside from our desserts, Dulcelin also has an extensive savory food menu. Traditional dishes such as chicken relleno and galantina, lengua, callos, paella and cochinillo continue to be very popular all year round. The newer items like the Wagyu Tritips, Short Ribs cooked for 48 hours, Red Rice Salad and Cannelloni (using homemade pasta) also receive great feedback from our clientele. So if you're planning a party at home, do consider Dulcelin for your main courses and desserts. All orders can be picked up in 36 Times Street., Tiendesitas, Greenhills, or Glorietta. Call 374-2165 or 67 for details.
