One reason that makes a food place popular or worth hanging out is the food presentation and venue itself. Though food quality/taste is still the major factor of the food establishment. The place and the ambiance makes it more memorable and not to mention worth taking pictures of it which is very common today (instagram, Facebook etc). This particular place is a good example of it, the CMYK Cebu.
CMYK Dessert House is one of the most colorful dessert resto place I had visited. From the look at the a place, you can immediately tell that it is a very good venue to hang out, chill and relax with close friends and families.
The dessert house is located long the Archbishop Reyes Avenue, Waterfront Drive, 6000 Lahug (across the BIR building and road/entrance going to Waterfront Cebu. You can immediately notice the place with a wooden cart like tables and chairs that looks more than a house than a food establishment.
CMYK is known to stand for Cyan Magenta Yellow and Black; the four primary colors for image printing. In CYMK dessert house, the CMYK stands for Chocolates Make You Kiss. As one of the owner is a passionate photographer, she saw it /as only/ fitting to have this (CMYK) as the theme of the place and chose these very colors to dawn over the dessert house.
The interior place is really an artistic work of art. With various colors placed in precise portion of the interiors. The ambiance of relaxing scene with proper arrangements of tables and chairs not to mention the variety of these to choose from. They have the low chair similar to a Korean establishment like you are almost squatting, good for just chilling while enjoying their desserts, the normal wooden chairs for people who prefers normal sitting position.
We ordered their favourite dishes, the Dongbo ( PHP 193.00 ) and Breaded Fish Sandwich (PHP 209.00 ). Yes, it is not that affordable for it serving quality, if you want to fulfill you hunger with one meal then this is not for you, anyways, they have quite a variety of choices in the menu but mostly are desserts which is their forte dish. They have also unique names in some of it but it really does not matter as long as they are tasty noh.
So while waiting for the order, you can connect to their free wifi connection and the password is in their table placement decoration. Though their internet wifi connection is quite slow, hope they can improve on this one.
Now on the food review, The breaded fish sandwich is quite very good look and in terms of presentation, you almost don’t want to touch or eat it, this will be the good time to take photos of it (don’t forget to say your grace before meals first). Serving size as stated earlier not enough to fulfill you hunger, in short, serving size is small (at least for me :D). Taste is good, quite your ordinary fish fillet with mayo inside similar to a sandwich.
Dongbo is a pork (humba) dish with rice in a bowl (rice bowl in short :D). The taste is surprising for me, it is similar to my mothers pork humba recipe which is very tasty and unexpected coming from this resto. It is like home cook food for me. Not to mention the food presentation is quite artistic.
Overall, it is an interesting dining experience, not to mention that the time I made this review is also a memorable moment for me that makes this place extra special. CMYK restaurant is perfect for hanging out and food is good. If you want a colorful place to chill while enjoying great food, I definitely recommend CMYK dessert house.
