10 Dove Street, one of my favorite restaurants in Cebu, has now warmed up in its new nest at Oakridge Business Park. Though they have moved to a commercial location, they were still somehow able to maintain that intimate, personal charm from when they were yet a hole-in-the-wall in Sto. Niño Village. I believe this is from the home cooking touch in their dishes and the personalized service they offer each guest consistently, making sure every visit is pleasurably memorable.
I think the most popular items from 10 Dove Street are their unforgettably loveable cakes that you can't miss the moment you step into the restaurant, sitting regally on their pedestals. These are definitely some of my favorite cakes in town for their perfect balance in texture (not too airy nor dense), sweetness (not throat-irritating which means you can easily finish the whole slice) and flavor combinations. They have mastered their signature chiffon cake that comes in many delectable flavors, it can be quite a challenge to settle for just one. Their cakes are so resilient, they can offer you rich chocolatey-ness or light, refreshing, fruity ones. My personal favorites are the Avocado Pandan Cake, Mango Yogurt Cake, Ube Pandan and the Opera! The Opera was particularly reminiscent of my favorite J. Co donut, the Alcapone! Hehe.
