I love Truffette de France’s(TDF) Chocolate Truffles and way back in 2011, there was no other place to get my choco truffle fix in Cebu but Vanille. It was the closest to the melt-in-your-mouth, rich chocolatey smoothness of TDF truffles, and was sold for only P30 a pop.
After Vanille closed their outlet in Ayala Center Cebu, I have not tried any of their offerings since, until just recently when I went to their Streetscape branch for a meeting.
Vanille’s ambiance looks like a colorful, Victorian -ish space – inviting and bright.
It was in time for lunch and ordered the Pork Steak – boneless pork cut marinated and grilled, with rice, corn kernels and gravy on the side. The grill marks on the chop looked very enticing. Slicing through it, the meat can be a bit dry specially on the middle part, and dipping it on the gravy helped a lot in making it moist and easier to chew, not to mention tastier.
It was my first time having a meal at Vanille for I usually swing by for dessert. That visit was quite a quick one though, having no time to rekindle my fondness for their choco truffles. Maybe on the next visit.
