Cheesecakes by Guy-22.jpg

Gregory Guy is an Atenean Chef famous for his light, creamy, and fine cheesecakes. He took up culinary studies in Le Cordon Bleu and trained in the restaurants of Joel Robuchon in Paris and Jean Georges at The Mark in New York.

He finally opened his first cafe at Eastwood Mall recently, where he serves his signature omelettes, paninis, pasta, cheesecakes, and cheesecake ice cream.

We were at Cheesecakes by Guy to celebrate the birthday of my wife over lunch with our friend, Tina and my brother, Rommel. Here’s our experience…

It’s a popular dessert place after lunch or dinner, where you can order the famous cheesecake flavors.  

“Our cheesecakes on the other hand are baked with the freshest eggs straight from the farm. Every bite is a balance between the flavor rich New York Style and the Lighter French Gateau au Fromage. And this is what most people have learned to love: a light, creamy and very fine cheesecake that is strong enough to stand on its own but shows no resistance once sliced into. This is what makes our cakes different from the rest. We offer the perfect balance of great taste, full flavor and lightness in texture so you can enjoy bite after bite!” – www.cheesecakesbyguy.com

✮ Triple Caviar Cheesecake by Guy (TASTER 3″ P500 / MINI 5″ P1,000).

You’ve got to order this triple caviar savory cheesecake in advance, which is a good appetizer to start with and spread on top of bread.

It’s very light, creamy, cheesy, with a bit of saltiness from the caviar. Sarap! Worth every calorie. 🙂

The Cheesecakes by Guy Menu offering is limited by the size of the kitchen.

✮ Spinach and Goat’s Cheese White Egg Omelette (P240).

The white omelette was so smooth, like pancake. This is the right way to cook the egg white. 

Cheesecakes by Guy-27.jpg The omellete is fluffy soft with goat cheese and juicy spinach. Highly recommended! 🙂

✮ Sparkling Lemonade (P150).

The sparkling lemonade gets you in a bubbly mood and stimulates your appetite.

Cheesecakes by Guy-29.jpg
Ginger Soda (P150).

This tastes like Ginger Ale with sprite. 

Cheesecakes by Guy-32.jpg
✮ Maple Citrus Glazed Salmon (P520). Orzo Salad with Spring Vegetables.

The salmon was also cooked well. Every bite was juicy and tasty, with an Orzo pasta that looks like big, long grains of rice mixed with vegetables for a complete meal. 

Cheesecakes by Guy-35.jpg
✮ Mac and Cheese (P260). Gruyere, Mozzarella, Cheddar.

The macaroni is coated in three kinds of cheese and satisfies your cheesy craving. The portions are big enough to be shared.

Cheesecakes by Guy-36.jpg
Greek Grilled Chicken (P270). Cucumber, Tomato, Onion, Olive, and Feta.

The panini bread needs improvement.

Mocha Coffee (P160) with Home Made Chocolate Syrup.

Try this coffee mixed with his homemade chocolate syrup, which is not too overpowering.

Cheesecakes by Guy-41.jpg
Organic Passionberry Fruit Tisane (P150).

My wife likes the refreshing berry tea to stimulate digestion.

Cheesecakes by Guy-42.jpg
Red Velvet (P120/slice). 2 layers of moist red velvet cake with a cheesecake layer in the middle all covered in our cream cheese frosting!

A Filipino favorite, and I like that it’s not too sweet but still has a satisfying red velvet flavor.

Cheesecakes by Guy-46.jpg
Raspberry Cheesecakes (P165). A berry good cheesecake that tastes as refreshing as it looks.

I like Gregory Guy’s cheesecakes because they’re light and hindi nakakaumay. You really enjoy every slice.

Home Made Cheesecake Ice Cream (P85/scoop)Raspberry, 65% Dark Malagos Chocolate, Green Tea.

Gregory’s Ice Cream is made from the same batter used to create the cheesecake so you can enjoy the same yummy taste, but in ice cream form.

✮ Molten Lava Chocolate Cake (P200) with Cheese Cake Ice Cream.

He serves a Malagos Dark Chocolate Molten Lava cake with his homemade cheesecake ice cream. Really good! 🙂 

Cheesecakes by Guy-49.jpg
✮ Ice Cream Sandwich (P135).

We also love his ice cream sandwiched between homemade graham crackers. 🙂

Thank you and congratulations, Chef Gregory, for the yummy, fine food and cheesecake! Truly, a highly recommended lunch and dessert place in Eastwood Mall. 🙂

I like Chef Gregory Guy’s cheesecake philosophy of having light, well-balanced flavors, with the ingredients speaking for themselves–a philosophy he also applied to the rest of his food.  

If you’re going for lunch, don’t forget to order the Spinach and Goat’s Cheese White Egg OmeletteMaple Citrus Glazed Salmon, and Mac and Cheese. 

If you’re going for dessert, I recommend the Molten Lava Chocolate Cake and Ice Cream Sandwich.

The paninis need improvement and the ambiance does not give justice to the quality of food that the restaurant offers.

Budget about P600/head for lunch with dessert.

Final tip: pre-order the Triple Caviar Cheesecake if you want to dine to impress. 🙂
