GELE Milkshake Cafe..
Nowadays, it is ironic that these so called millennials, have greatly influenced people of all ages. I am coming from this habit formed to perform activities outside of home over cafes that serve milkshakes, coffee, smoothies, flavored teas, paired with sandwiches, pastas and burgers with varying twists.
Millennials are undeniably showing hunger and thirst for change for something unconventional. I think their keywords are freedom and adventure. You will see black burgers which you normally find not so appealing but to its being different are catered and enjoyed by many.
As I also observed, the love for coffee has been a strong inclination by Filipinos. The competition from those beans coming from different countries and those beans that are locally grown is truly tight. What’s surprising is that both were thriving.
Proofs of these are the numerous hole in the walls establishments taking turns in coming up with something unique. The trend is attractive, the chalkboard menus are everywhere and full of color. Coffee shops, cafes are in all corners.
Just in my vicinity, Jen and I have listed a number of cafes to visit so as to verdict which one has the best tasting coffee on top of the aesthetic side that if not present, said cafe will lag behind by those who are bold enough to offer what is sometimes I used to call “out of this world”.
Weekends for us are our chance to visit these places. One from the list is Gele’s… It’s a 15 minutes drive from my place.
While searching for it, the place looked big in the photos. However, when we get there, it is but a small place that can seat more than 4 groups of 3 to 4 pax.
The theme is clean and crisp with touches of nature’s colors. Browns and greens.
We just had our drinks to chill and matched them with our staple Mexican favorite. The nacho salad. There was always excitement in our eyes upon the attendant’s arrival handing down our orders.
I fell in love with the colored nachos, however, I didn’t like it much since I can taste the onions. It was too strong for me and I wished for more tomatoes.
I had Mudslide and Jen had Salty Pop. We both liked our first trys, it was not like those times when you get disappointed with your choice and wished for another. I took them more than 10 minutes to prepare both. Not bad.
We finished them satisfied. And as we’re about to leave, some millennials are pouring in. It’s good to feel younger sometimes. =)
