No meat meals? Try Slappy Cakes Lenten specials

I got invited to try out Slappy Cakes Lenten Specials at their branch in SM Aura earlier this week. I originally planned to just take Lukas with me, but the rest of the family ended up joining me instead. And it was just as good because there was so much food!

Slappy Cakes Lenten Specials are no-meat alternatives that include great, tasty dishes from appetizers to pasta and filling sandwiches and rice meals.


That MasterChef moment

Jay and I had a “MasterChef” moment when he gently cut through the eggs on Slappy Cakes’ Salmon Benedict and out oozed the yolk, blending dramatically with the hollondaise sauce. Yummmm!

The Salmon Benedict was actually one of their All Day Breakfast meals (which means you can order them for breakfast, lunch or dinner!), along with their Garlic Bangus meal which came with a little mango ensalada on the side that Jay and I both agreed was a good touch.

They served us the Cheese sticks first and the kids simply devoured them, hot cheese, dip and all!

Another favorite was the basket of fish bites.

Pesto love

Who doesn’t love pesto? Pesto’s one of the staple pasta dishes we serve here at home, but I have to admit, it was quite a treat to taste Slappy Cakes’ Pesto Pasta with Anchovies. It was delicious and filling and it was a LOT!

In fact, that’s how it is in Slappy Cakes. All dishes are for sharing because they serve in huge quantities. They’re generous with potatoes, too! This is because of the potato-lovin’ locals of Portland, Oregon where Slappy Cakes started back in 2009.

Slappy Cakes DIY pancakes

What’s a Slappy Cakes dining experience without the DIY pancake experience, right? Slappy Cakes have a griddle right in the middle of your table where you can design and cook your own pancake with your kids (or friend, hubby, or imaginary friend – get creative, haha!)

All the members of the media present at the event had a little DIY pancake competition with the theme, “What will you do this Lenten season?”

The picture we came up with was the rubber pool because that’s what we did last year.  Lukas’ birthday always falls on Holy Week and we celebrated it last year with a rubber pool party with just us, here in our yard.

But then no matter how hard we tried, do you think we’ll win against this???? Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that is a pancake, bow!

Other dishes included in Slappy Cakes’ Lenten Specials are Tomato Soup, Grilled Three Cheese sandwich, the Seasonal Vegetable Benedict, and the mouth-watering Mango Ponzu salad.

  3. I was under the impression that they only served pancakes. Been wanting to try this for awhile now and knowing they have more than just pancakes is great!

    1. Oh they do have meat. They’re just offering this menu for the lenten season. The burgers are too die for! 🙂

  6. It’s funny how this is the first time I’ve heard about Slappy Cakes considering that they’re not-so-far from my place of work. I will definitely give it a shot – I’m eying the pesto pasta and their tomato soup, both look divine!

  7. Our first experience in Slappy Cakes was not too good. The food was expensive but did not taste good. But your picture of the pesto pasta is very tempting.

  8. My husband and I looooovvvee Slappy Cakes! They have the best burgers in town! Not exactly cheap but so so meaty. Will try their Lenten specials nga one time. Parang ang sarap ng cheese sticks nila. 🙂

    1. YES! We got burgers, too (we didn’t know we were going to be served plenty of food) and they were, in street linggo – da bomb! 😉

  9. I’ve been wanting to try Slappy Cakes but everytime I look at their menu outside, I immediately realize how expensive their dishes are. Even the pancake batters seem a bit on the higher side.

  10. I’ve never heard of slappy cakes but the eggs benedict looked delicious. DIY pancakes are pretty common in buffet breakfast places here.

  11. It is great that the kids are included in the process of preparing food. Food is love and it is beneficial for them to participate in the family activities. Those food pics look awesome!

    1. Thanks phyliciamarie. It’s actually my 1st time to try DIY pancake. Didn’t expect to win.

      To the author of this blog, thanks for including me in your post. 🙂
