Creamy Concoctions at Milky Moustache
Opened just last November, Milky Moustache was born in the kitchen of the owners’ home. “Last summer, my husband craved for a milkshake so I bought a blender and mixed together some things. He teased me at first then later encouraged me to open a shop,” says Vanessa Dionio, the 28 year-old owner and CPA who never thought she would seriously venture into the food business. Milky Moustache’s home is along Russia Street in Better Living Subdivision in Parañaque.
Milkshakes at Milky MoustacheFirst things we tried on their menu were their signature drinks. I had their Nutella Milkshake (P130) while my sister Pia had the Kit-Kat Milkshake (P145). Both were served in mason jars with metal straws and had just the right amount of sweetness. Other flavors include Cookie Butter, Reese’s Peanut Butter, and Chocnut. Fruity flavors Mango and Strawberry are also available.

Brewed CoffeeTo top off our adventure, we had a generous helping of Quezon province’s famous Rodillas Yema Cake (P75). It was a foodie A-ha! moment when I found out they have this (Vanessa’s family hails from Quezon) and it’s one of the reasons why people troop to the cozy shop. Drop by in the early afternoon to make sure you get your slice (or else sleep with a major unfulfilled craving) of this simple yet superb cake.
