This is not the first time I went to La Vetta, ranked by TripAdvisor as number one among the restaurants in the city. I was smitten during that visit, so the next time I was in Cagayan de Oro, I made sure to drop by. You can read about my first visit to the restaurant here.
We opted for desserts, and what an excellent selection they have. We tried the double mud choco cake, which is always a sure bet.
We also tried the mango flambe, which was also awesome.
My colleague, Rouschelle, looked like she could whip up the dish herself...
...but we left the cooking to the professionals. I love the theatricality behind the preparation of the dish.
Of the desserts we tried, our favorite was the apricot strudel. Strudels are a popular Austrian pastry.
The other desserts were good, but this was the most unusual. It warmed our hearts, it was creamy, not too sweet. I love the nice textures courtesy of the meringue and dried apricot.
