Although just over a year old, SM Seaside City Cebu is slowly filling up with both international brands we’ve been waiting for years to come over, and homegrown names that seem to be after our own hearts. Few has the latter been so exemplified as at Room for Dessert where, as you may have guessed, their offerings of cakes, ice cream and drinks will always have you saving a corner of your stomach.
From the family behind popular restaurant Casa Verde, Room for Dessert sits on a stand-alone structure atop a water feature in Seaside’s Sky Park—in itself already a feast for the eyes. In lieu of the previous brand’s famous ribs, Room for Dessert’s claim to fame is the fairy floss topped with ice cream, a sugary concoction that’s incredibly photogenic—something tells us Instagram’s gonna be filled with images of this cloudy treat.
The dish features a sugar cone or cup topped with a generous serving of cotton candy fluff, and topped with soft serve ice cream and a number of other treats. There are different versions of the dessert, each one equally tempting: the Jayden’s Jar of Cereals, Ting’s Heavenly Chocolate, Juliana’s Cookie Madness, Mason’s Bear Belly topped with gummy bears, and the K Pop C’s which has popcorn.
Not to be outdone, the cakes are just as remarkable. Whether it’s the colorful Rainbow Cake, the tart Lemon Curd Cheesecake or the Tiramisu Cheesecake, they’ve transformed the treats into the highlight of the meal, and not just something to cap it off. A favorite, though, is the Cookie Dough Cheesecake.
For those looking for something more savory than sweet, Room for Dessert also offers sandwiches. The Egg Salad Sandwich is a classic, while the Roast Beef has thick slices of meat for a more filling meal. Top it off with their selection of smoothies—the Mango Banana is a perfect refresher for the summer days.
Sure, Room for Dessert’s own name encourages us to leave room for what some may argue is the best part of the meal. Their selection of treats, though, is enough to convince others that maybe we can skip the rest of the meal altogether and save all the room for what matters.
