Why I Heart Cebu’s Tymad Bistro

Tymad Bistro Cebu

The stars of the show in Tymad Bistro are heart-shaped.

I wondered where my date’s eyes were fixed upon the moment we sat until after we ordered breakfast.

He wasn’t looking at me.

For a minute, I thought he was checking out a pretty lady.

So I followed his gaze and discovered that he found a stunner.

I speak of this glossy, red, heart-shaped dessert.

It doesn’t shout but only sweetly whispers, “You must have me.”

I don’t remember its name.  (I didn’t have to. )I keep beautiful photos of food in my phone. I find it so useful when friends ask me about my latest finds.

I just take out my phone and show them a picture or two. Okay, maybe three. You get my drift.

That pretty plate didn’t last very long. Wouldn’t it be madness to keep it waiting?

Assuming it’d be too sweet, he ordered an extra cup of Americano coffee… But it was unnecessary.

Spoon after spoon, each morsel was magic.

It has such rich texture and taste that you want to keep it longer in your mouth to savor its flavor. (At least, that’s what I tried to do. )

Here’s a quick and dirty tip: Leave some space for dessert. Dining in a French bistro and not trying their desserts is a crime. Not really, but close, you’ll see.

I know, I know that’s a struggle.

With Tymad Bistro’s heavy and heavenly breakfast selection, restraint is cruelty to the foodie.

My dining mate is sort of a ‘regular’ here so he knows what to order. I, on the other hand, have only dined here four times since 2013.

As far as I remember

I celebrated my birthday here last year with two lovely friends.

Good times with Katie and Darwin

It was a Thursday so we had the place to ourselves for hours of chat. Fun times.

Then, the next one was a taste test. Below, I was trying the most expensive cake in Cebu, in Tymad Bistro where else.

How can I suppress a grin?

Did you notice something? Tymad’s pastry chef has a knack for creating tantalizing plates of desserts.

But even the most expensive cake won’t be spared if it lands on my plate.

Thank Goodness, Tymad is in Cebu

When you come from a working class family, you must have been told to get a job so you could eat. I took this nugget of wisdom to heart. Come to think of it, eating well is literally enjoying the fruits of your labor.

That’s why I’m thankful that Cebu has Tymad.

It might be a little pricey but it’s a good spot to hang out once in a while.

As soon as I’m seated, I get giddy happy in anticipation of an awesome dining experience.

One scoop led to another until…

This is the fate of any superb dessert. No surprise there.

Can we all agree on one thing? Tymad Bistro is a must-visit French restaurant and patisserie in Cebu. If you’re looking for splendid sweet treats and authentic French cuisine,  this is the place to be.
