Nangita og Uban Pa sa Torta og Uban Pa

The Saturday afternoon I brought myself to Torta og Uban Pa's doorstep, they had torta (of course! They wouldn't call themselves Torta og Uban Pa if they didn't have torta). The "og Uban Pa" (and others) were cake bars, cake pops, and chiffon cupcakes. 


I was disappointed that Torta og Uban Pa didn't have the "og Uban Pa" I came here for: cupcakes. All your fault Babe for Food, for posting all those pretty cupcakes on your blog! Okay, maybe it's my fault for going nine months after reading that post. But let's look at my health's bright side: I won't have to go on a cupcake eating spree.

While I was mulling over what to buy, a kid came by and bought a mallows bar. So that's what I had (when it takes me too long to decide, I will have whatever the other customer is having :D) and a revel bar (the chocolate that oozed through the cracks was calling me). The place is named Torta og Uban Pa, that tells me I should try the torta, too.

Kids would probably love all the mallows on the mallows bar but for me, on the whole, it was nothing fancy. The revel bar on the other hand, I loved. It was chewy and chocolatey. And the torta? I never liked torta because I always see it as oily cake. But that's torta from Argao. This torta from Catmon is crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, doesn't crumble, and is not at all oily.

Presently Torta og Uban Pa's cupcakes are on order basis. Good news is, even if they are based in Catmon, 58 kilometers from Cebu City, I (and you, too!) can place an order (be it cupcakes, cakes, or torta) and orders can be picked up in the city. Yahoo!

  1. Thanks for the review about the revel and mallows bars. I am excited to claim my prize from the owner of Torta Og Uban Pa next week because I am one of the winners for her contest in Facebook hehehehe.
