We love Dulcelin and we've tasted a big portion of their menu. Their dishes never fail to make us close our eyes in appreciation and put a smile on our faces in satisfaction.
For Dulcelin lovers who got used to the classic items, they introduced their new menu additions in Ultimate Taste Test 7.0 -- Honeyed Beef Bourguignon and Shrimp & Uni Pasta.
I personally love the tenderness and rich wine sauce of the Beef Bourguignon.
The Shrimp & Uni Pasta is good to try too because of its tender seafood and unique sauce. If your family loves uni, this is the dish for you this holiday season. :)
Congratulations again, Dulcelin!
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 at 36 Times Street, West Triangle Quezon City; Tiendesitas; Greenhills; or Glorietta. Call 374-2165 or 67 for details.
