Since childhood, Greenwich has been known as a household name of pizza chains in the Philippines.  With the challenges in the changing palate of Filipino taste for pizzas, Greenwich came up with something sweet this time. Taking risk to have their thin-crust pizza with mashed banana and hazelnut cream Nutella. Definitely, worth a try!

Now my sweet tooth is definitely kicking in! Head to the nearest Greenwich Fast Food chain and check their latest choco treat for you.

For only P109 (dine-in), you can lavish on this 9-inch "dessert" pie called #chocobananacrisp. If  you are with your friends around, it will be a good conversation starter while you take a bite of this sweet delight.

Greenwich is not only a pizza haven but there is more to what they can offer. Their lasagna supreme has been my seasonal favorite. It's just P99 and this pasta dish could already satiate my hungry tummy!
I'm sure you won't regret devouring this!

The first time I set my palate with these Indonesian donuts is during one of my visits to Singapore, in Bugis Junction Mall in particular. I instantly fell in love with its taste where flavors revel while maintaining the balance of sweetness. Just right for my very sweet tooth. Pairing it with a cup of coffee, it's like enjoying the tropical summer in the middle of a monsoon-driven holiday!

When I learned that J.CO Donuts has two branches in the Queen City of the South, Cebu, it's like foreseeing heaven in this vulnerable human world. I can simply choose between SM CIty Cebu or Ayala Center Cebu. Very convenient in deed! The two branches opened on September 2, 2014.

"Cebuanos can now take their time in indulging in the J.CO lifestyle concept with its innovative range of donuts with their quirky names, interesting cups of J.COFFEE beverages, and cool servings of J.COOL frozen yogurt. Everyone was treated to an all-out J.CO treatment as the bustling sights and sounds of freshly-made donuts and hand-crafted beverages surrounded them and were served one after another filling the air with a mix of energizing, roasted coffee scents and the wafting warm, cozy aroma of the infamous donuts. Signature J.CO treats like Alcapone, with its white Belgian chocolate and roasted Californian almond slices on top of J.CO’s trademark soft-bite donut, and Jcoccino, J.CO’s own version of the cappuccino, made their presence known among the multiple sets of snug and relaxing seating."-J.CO Donuts and Coffee

I'm so honored to be one of the first to check their SM City Cebu branch with my fellow Cebu Bloggers. It was a rainy afternoon but we lavishly savored almost all donuts and paired it with some refreshments and/or Jcoccino (their own version of Cappuccino) coffee.

Let me share with you what transpired that day...hold on to your cravings...

I'm having Mr. Green Tea, Cheese Cakelicious, Alcapone (my fave), Avocado DiCaprio (highly recommended) paired with Cafe Avocado (cold drink).

We (Cebu Bloggers) also enjoyed some live demo of Latte art-making from J.Co's highly-trained latte artists! See these gorgeous creations (below):

I wish to have a talent in creating Latte Art such as these (above).

Since, it's a day where I spent time with my fellow bloggers, how could it be not perfect to have it at J.Co's in SM City Cebu? Here's the mandatory photo op:

And of course, I didn't leave the place without bringing my box of J.CO Donuts at home! That morning, I just had the best day started! Here's why:

No need for words to describe it!

J.CO also got some cool treats for you with their JCOOL yogurts!
