Cheesecakes by Guy is a small café/cheesecake restaurant in Eastwood Mall. It’s the first restaurant venture of Chef Gregory Guy. Not only is Chef Guy an Ateneo graduate, he also took culinary studies at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu culinary/hospitality institute. So I guess you can say this guy is clearly on his way to becoming a star when it comes to the local culinary scene.
We ate here for dinner when my dad decided to take a leave of absence from his work today.
And here’s a shoddy pic that I took of their cheesecake collection. Their cheesecakes come in many different varieties. The last time my mom came here, she tired their quezo de bola cheesecake.
English Breakfast iced tea.
Mac and Cheese, a bubbling platter of elbow mac slathered with three different cheeses – Cheddar, gruyere, and mozzarella. Even though the dish is chock-full of cheeses, it did not make me feel queasy at all. The taste was very light, and the burnt edges give the dish a crispy texture.
This is their Philly Cheese Steak Panini – Paper-thin slices of rib-eye, with bits of jalapeno peppers, cheddar, gruyere cheese, and caramelized onions, in between two slices of grilled ciabatta bread. Paired with some side salad. The sandwich had a slightly spicy kick to it, and I also loved the combination of the beef’s tenderness and the warm, toasty ciabatta.
And finally… Cold, delicious cheesecakes! I had the Oreo version (bottom), while mom had the regular version. These cheesecakes were made using farm-fresh eggs, and combines the best of two distinct cheesecake styles – New York Style cheesecake, which has an intense, rich flavor, and the lighter-tasting French Gateau au Fromage. So the end result is a light and creamy, yet very flavorful cheesecake that people can enjoy with each bite.
Heck, even my dad loved it and he’s very picky when it comes to desserts.
Our meal here was very light and shouldn’t even be considered as dinner, but none of us really cared—The food was just amazing, and that’s what really mattered.
