"Daan muna tayo sa Farmacy before tayo tumuloy sa Bonifacio High Street." I told our driver while checking out the address on Google. Everyone in the car (except for my sister) thought that I will buy medicine and was surprised when we stopped by an ice cream and soda shop ; )
The idea of having a ice cream and soda shop here in Manila excites me. I had a nostalgic moment when I saw the place because it reminded me of Pop Tate's Chock'lit Shoppe. Yes, the fictional soda shop from Archie Comics. Design wise, Farmacy is more contemporary. The Chock'lit Shoppe opened in 1940's so the design was more retro.
There are 26 ice cream and 9 sorbet flavors to choose from the menu. There are also several new flavors written on a piece of paper (see photo above) that you can try.
Aside from ice cream and sodas, there's also coffee, hot drinks, bottled beers, wine, organic teas, shakes and pastries.
|Pistachio ice cream Php 130 with Roasted Almonds Php 25|
As usual, my mom ordered her favorite dessert- a single scoop of Pistachio ice cream with Roasted Almonds on top.
There were several bar stools just opposite the bar. We occupied three booths on the right. Each one can only accommodate 2 persons.
|Banana Split Php 280|
My daughter loves cherry and strawberry so I ordered a Banana Split for her. It's her favorite flavor and she can finish one scoop all by herself. Instead of vanilla and chocolate, I changed it with Banana with Salted Caramel for me and Mint Choco Chip for my sister.
|my brother's Cafe Mocha Php 130|
Except for the coffee which didn't impress my brother at all, the ice cream flavors that we have chosen were all deliciously good. I would have ordered other homemade ice cream flavors like Chocolate Orange, Avocado, Buttered Pecan & Candied Bacon if I am not watching what I eat these days.
Farmacy Ice Cream and Soda Fountain is located at 4th Ave. cor. 26th St., Bonifacio Global City. You can contact them at 887 3622.
