The Abaca Baking Company is one of the many restaurants under Abaca Group, popular for its several restaurants because of its top-notch food and excellent service that spread like wildfire within the island of Cebu.
This place has everything that you are craving for when it comes to comfort food, they have quite enough variety on their menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (Breakfast is served 24-7)
Although they have an American short-order restaurant named 'Luncheonette', they also offer this at ABC. Homemade burger buns, grilled smashed brisket, belly and chuck, American cheese and their special sauce. It also comes with fresh potato wedges and their very good homemade pickles... what else can I ask for?
So many times we ordered this burger to share with another dish but I always regret sharing it with him because he likes to give me less portion that I should be getting, lol. He would tell me 'I should get the bigger cut because I am bigger than you' and I would raise my right brow but I just ceased.
Then I would tell him, we should just order one each but then I always want to have a different dish on our table. Women can really be complicated ha? lol
Traditional Meat Pie
While my boyfriend and I were waiting for the main dish that we ordered, I went up to the counter and just looked through the freshly baked goods and I saw they have a meat pie. I never had a meat pie before other than dessert pies so I thought I would try this out.
If I remember correctly, Genesis, one of the staff told me that it's a combination of pork and beef. The stuffing was very tasty and I enjoyed the pie crust, it was flaky and moist. For some cooks out there, we know that baking a pie crust isn't always easy. It can be bland and boring if you haven't perfect any pie crust recipes and the key answer to an excellent pie is the crust! ;)
The best tasting mashed potatoes I've had in a restaurant! Am not even sure which one is better, my mashed potato or this one ;p
I 've had some awful mashed potato in other restaurants, how awful? So bad that I wanted to go into their kitchen and boil some potatoes and show them how easy it is to make an excellent mashed potato, am not even kidding, lol. It' really upsets me when they can't make a simple dish like this.
One of the best dishes on the breakfast menu is the bakery benedict but it doesn't mean you can only have it for breakfast, which I'd have this anytime of the day ;)
It has two perfect poached eggs, shaved ham, two halves toasted English muffins and poured with some rich tarragon hollandaise sauce! One the menu you select from shaved ham, smoked salmon, crisp bacon, or corned beef.
I think if I wasn't outside I would lick the whole plate just because the sauce what THAT good ;D
Strawberry Banana Watermelon Smoothie
I also ordered a strawberry-banana-watermelon smoothie and I wasn't surprise since they're always consistent. I tried their other smoothies and they're all very good but this one is my favorite.
Dessert at Abaca IT Park
After our lunch at Abaca Ayala Mall, we spent about two hours roaming around the mall and bought some stuff that we need before going home.
Headed back to our condo, we weren't done with Abaca for the day so stopped at the ABC branch at IT Park and had some dessert. ;p
Now, Telll me this isn't making you hungry!- Because as I am writing this, my stomach is grumbling and am thinking to ask my boyfriend if we can grab some thing at the closest Abaca Baking Store ;p
Who doesn't love sweets? The desserts here are to die for! If you happen to visit any of their branches where the time strikes for a 50% up to 70% off on selected items then take that chance to grab some treats.
Carrot Walnut Cake
Overwhelming as it is for me whenever I visit this place, the variety of dessert is what I am always after for. One of one favorite cake is the carrot walnut cake. It has a balance of flavor from the carrots and walnut, oh warning this one is so addicting.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie
If it's got peanut butter, I go to have it!
My boyfriend and I ordered one slice each of carrot walnut cake and two peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. I couldn't take a good photo of the cake because I couldn't wait to eat plus my boyfriends eats fast (coz he is used to eating fast while he was in the Army) So sometimes I feel like I have to rush to finish my food once he is done, lol. I like to eat slow and appreciate every bite, I enjoy the food better that way. So this time, I didn't rush and I took all the time I had to endulge in my lovely desserts.
I highly recommend this place to all food-fanatics out there. For every delicious calorie is a value for money!
Abaca Baking Company has now 8 locations in Cebu:
IT Park Cebu, TGU Tower
IT Park Cebu, Filinvest Cyberzone
Ayala Cebu, Rustan's. 2/F

I want to taste every food featured in this blog. I'm droooooooling :D but seriously though I never been inside an ABC. I don't know why but I feel intimidated even though I really wanted to go in because the aromas of freshly baked goodies are calling me haha! Now, I should really check out an ABC branch :D
oh dear, this place is never to miss! check out there discounted pastries and breads ;)
Lol! Did you really eat all this? I bet you and your boyfriend had to roll out of the restaurant haha.
Everything looks very yummy. I know it's not appropriate to lick the plate in public, but looking at those bakery benedicts I think I would leave my manners behind and act like a wild caveman, lmao.
Something tells me that you will go again to devour all those desserts you didn't try ;)
Lol! I like your comment @ralk98, yes these two are really food explorer haha. They roam around Cebu just to taste different kinds of food. Her boyfriend can even devour 1 whole pizza .Lol
By the way I'm her sister @gerel.
Nice to see you here
Have a good one.
Stay safe 😍
@gerel Nice to meet you! I know it right, he looks like a guy who can eat a lot xD
Enjoying life through food is one of the best things in the world :) my best wishes for you!
Yeah, your right. Enjoy life while we can.
haha yep yep!
it's hard to resist all those mighty mouthwatering calories!
eat+exercise= keep eating!
I did eat a lot when I exercised :O And I was surprised that I could last so long. Gotta love dem calories.
Exercising is good, you should continue :)
Reading this just before my lunch break is not helping. The food photography is mouthwatering. I should go eat now to satisfy my tummy. LOL
haha sorry, dear. Enjoy your lunch, pakabusog! ^_-
Haha 'I should get the bigger cut because I am bigger than you' You should say, "I'm smaller than you because you keep taking the bigger cut!" :)
One of my favorite things about the Philippines in terms of food is the bakeries. Bread and pastries here are very good and also cheap.
oh yes, there are a lot of bakeries in the Philippines. It's like a bakery store next to another bakery store lol
I agree with you @vagrantone. One of the famous bread in some bakeries is the 'pandesal' :) and it is actually one of the fave bread the pinoy
Pandesal sounds like Spanish "pan de sal" (salt bread). Is it just salty bread?
Oh really, not a salt bread but I guess we filipinos adapted the word pandesal to spanish people.
That's pretty delicious foods indeed fabulous post @purepinay.
Sure...you made me hungry. Carrot Walnut Cake, and juice most favorite one to me. Buy if give you every foods my stomach ready to eat and enough space there. :D

Awwww, I didn't know she's allergic to seafood. For a food lover, all of these allergies are really a bummer. At least she's not allergic to peanuts!

ganda ng mga pictures! masarap ang mga pagkain at maganda pa ngbablog!
Omg everytbing looks so mouth watering! I'm looking forward to trying their cakes😋
Wow this looks so good! I love the meat pies! The first time I ever had a meat pie besides a turkey pot pie was at a Tibetan restaurant and it was so well done. The crust had a nice thickness to it and an even better buttery taste. The inside of the pie was really simple, it was just yak meat and onions but they made their own homemade chili paste which was a combination of so many different flavors like garlic and onion that really complimented the meat and pie so well.
This place was by far my favorite Tibetan restaurant until they changed into a clothes store because the business was too good and they didn't like being so busy (it was just a small family run restaurant). I miss them and their meat pies and seeing yours makes me miss them again!
Mmmm yummy naman😊
salamat po ;)

Wowow..excellent food photography....& very good your traveling.. i like this post..thanks for sharing with us...dear @purepinay... &g great work..
You are making it so hard for me to go on a diet lol.
Lol, I've noticed that since I'm on Steem I have these urges to go travel and eat junk food. It's hard with all these posts trying to allure me!
Travel, eat and live life my friend. We only have one life and we should make the most out of it. As a bonus it sparks inspiration and imagination. Taking us out of our usual routine. I think I need one soon.
the food was very tasty,very nice food photo,
my dear friend @purepinay,i love this post,thank you for sharing with us,
delicious food at this restaurant.
May be more complete at the price of each menu.
So if anyone wants to visit this restaurant more interested again already mengatahui price ...
the best way to try some great food is not really because of the price, sometimes you have to let people discover it themselves coz they might not even bother to check out the place if they're just after the price of the food. Once in a while we have to treat ourselves to some excellent food ^_-
Abaca is just infront my workplace( IT park) . I love the idea that they offer promos on late nights. Everything is mouth watering yum! Thank you @purepinay for giving me idea what to order.
Dear really your post make my mouthwatery. I like every dish which you represent here.
Luncheonette Burger: I think this is sufficient to full stomach.
Traditional Meat Pie: Looks good i will surly eat this if this is made-up off meat or Pork or Mutton.
Bakery Benedict: I think this snack must be spicy.
Strawberry Banana Watermelon Smoothie: I never try it but whenever i visit to store where Strawberry Smoothie available then i will surly try.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie: This must me very delicious i think but don't mind i don't like this Cookie shape and color. I wish you get me what i want to say.
Waiting for next post @purepinay
Hmmm, you two tried a lot of different food! Seems like there is a lot of choice! The Benedict looks really mouthwatering! And carrot cake... It's my favourite and it is indeed sooooo addictive! I hope I can eat it today 😂 thanks for sharing!
if only there's a way to upgrade my stomach, I would pay to do it haha!
thank you for dropping by, @byriss. Hope everything is well on your end.
Yes an upgrade would be really great! Double foodness 😍 I'm fine thank you for asking ^^ although I'm busy, I'm missing the steemit community.
