An afternoon at Chez Karine

Love macarons? Craving for panna cotta?

Two weeks ago, after my meeting with my new client for a project, I decided to visit SM Megamall’s Fashion Mall. And been curious about on the food joints there, I spend my afternoon at Chez Karine. I was supposed to be in Taguig after the brainstorming, but time constraint…I stayed in Ortigas and had myself a time to ponder a lot of things.


I’ve heard a lot of raves about this French patisserie. Chez Karine caters artisanal, seasonal pastries, and aromatic coffee that makes me crave for sweets that day.

Nakakatakam tignan. Parang gusto ko lahat bilhin…lol :D
Pili ka ng makakain dito….busog mata ko sa kakatingin sa menu nila.


Upon entering this quaint joint, I love the ambiance which makes me feel at home. With their yummy panna cotta, macarons, and cakes, I was in awe of their wide array of pastries nearby the counter.

Friendly staff welcomed me and recommended some of their best-sellers that suits my budget. If you have a 500 pesos on your pocket, you can nibbled over their to-die for Mango Swiss Roll, a bunch of macarons or cookies and Caramel Fleur de Sel to top-up while chillaxin from the hectic workload.

Masarap na Caramel Macchiato. Nde sya masyadong matamis, tama lang sa mga nagdiet.
Devoured over this…Caramel Macarons brighten up my day.
Dahil mahilig ako sa kape, hindi ko pinalagpas tikman ang Muscovado Latte.

I ordered Salted Caramel macarons, Caramel Macchiato and Muscuvado Latte, my brief stay at Chez Karine-Megamall…I can’t get enough of their cakes, but the rain poured in when I decided to go home.

Rating; 5 stars. I recommended Chez Karine for those who love to eat pastries and want to chillax after a long day at work.

Muni-muni habang tinatakam ko lahat to. yum!
