Saint Gabbie's

It was not easy to find. The Saint Gabbie's booth. It was just a small chiller with several shelves occupying a small area on the second floor of Market Market, by the escalator.

But, with a lot of will power, I found it! I just had to, after reading all those raves about their chocolate mud cake. I just knew I had to try it. I was suprised to see that there were other sinfully delicious-looking treats to choose from! It took me a while to take my pick.

I still went for their bestseller, the Chocolate Mud Pie. I would just have to go back some other time to try the rest of the sweet treats.

.... peeking thru the plastic box...

... and meeting it face to face, at last...

And now the best part... for P42 bucks, this wasn't bad at all! It was definitely moist... super soft... though a bit too sugary for me. (No wonder they come in such small slices!) I was barely at my last bite yet I felt like my glucose level was running high already! Hahaha... But I love its chocolatey-ness.

Will I come back for more? I think so.


  1. wow nabasa ko nga sa GT sis, masarap daw cakes dyan. mukha nga e.. san sya banda sa market! market? was there 2 weeks ago kasi di ko napansin :( di kami madalas dyan e, hanapin ko nga talaga pag nagpunta ulit kami :)

  2. u8mypinkcookies, masarap sha sis! matamis, ya, medyo, pero bagay sa bitterness ng rich chocolate nya.
    i bought two boxes. one for me and one for Mon. i couldnt wait til i got home so i ate it na agad sa food court pa lang, hahahaha...
    at first i was asar kasi ang liit ng slice, yun pala, just right. mauumay ka na if it were bigger kasi.
    even Mon liked it. naubos nya agad one slice. ill come back for more talaga.
    sis, dun sha sa may escalator, dun sa may mga chowking... try mo ha!

  3. i definitely will try it. hehe thanks sis! hanapin ko talaga yan :)

    ano pa iba nilang products?

  4. u8mypinkcookies, dami pa sis.. next ill try would be the cheesecakes, oreo and blueberry.. then there's brazo de mercedes, then the mud cake with white belgian chocolate, revel bars, cookies...you can click on the first and second fotos to see how they look like. they look yummy too.
    btw, the choco mudpie is available in box of 4's. P160 lang. enjoy!

  5. I have been wanting to try their stuff. Yum yum!

  6. saw it sis. thanks! the one with belgian white choco looks good too! :D

    calories galore! ahaha.

  7. umypinkcookies, im glad you found it. yea, the belgian looks good din no! next time, try ko din yun.
    so, did you like it?

    Tahn, it is one of the most moist choco cakes ive had. for P42, not bad ha. try mo na!

  8. oh, what i meant was i saw the pic na. hehe. not sure when i can go to market2 but definitely, i'll look for st. gabbie's :)

  9. i'm missing alot of things by not exploring kahit minsan yang market na yan kahit lagi ako napapadaan...di kasi talaga ako mahilig punta sa mall unless may bibilhin ako something i need badly

  10. u8mypinkcookies, ay, hehehe.. ganun ba. sige, ill try to ask na din next time kung saan pa may ibang branches. baka may mas malapit sa yo here sa south.

    tutubi, sa mall naman ako usually nag shooshoot for blogs.. kasi foodtrip usually ang target ko. takaw no! haha...

    I was able to buy na and had it for breakfast this morning.. it was... YUMMY!! I bought the choco mud pie with white belgian chocolate! ;) thanks for letting me know about this, sis!!

  12. u8mypinkcookies, i am so glad you loved it too! babalikan ko nga sha ulit eh. ill try naman your white belgian.. and the cheescake. mukang masarap din eh. ;-)

  13. u8mypinkcookiesMay 1, 2008 at 9:04 PM

    yeah next ko rin cheesecake :)

    i dont think may difference yung plain choco mudpie and the one with white chocolate, kasi yung white choco naman yung nasa ibabaw lang e. plain choco cake pa rin yung loob ;)

  14. u8mypinkcookies, sige, cheesecake tayo next. pero, id still have to get a slice or two of the original. sarap diba! i love its moistness...super lambot talaga...

  15. u8mypinkcookiesMay 2, 2008 at 9:13 PM

    yeah! the choco mud cake, tama lang sweetness eh noh :) yung akin nga didn't eat it pa right after buying, ilang days pa sa fridge pero moist pa rin! :D perfect sya with black coffee.. hehe

  16. u8mypinkcookies, naku ture yan.. i love the softness and moistness nung cake nila... parang laging bago no!
    i gotta go back on tuesday to restock sa fridge namin. may 4 in 1 pack, diba? cheaper by 8 pesos ata... ;-)

  17. nagtaas na sila ng prices. yung mud cake- P45, tapos if may white chocolate- P49 na.

  18. u8mypinkcookies, naku, buti na lang less than P50 pa din. san alang hindi lumiit ang size. ok lang magtaas ng price, but i hope it doesnt get any smaller than it already is diba. at basta ganun pa din ang sarap. ok lang. ;-)
