Remember the Old Magnolia Ice Cream House in Aurora Boulevard that we used to visit back then? Well, I certainly do. The memories are still vivid and fresh in my mind. I remember the place being crowded with kids, smiling and laughing while digging their spoons into their favorite ice cream sundaes, banana splits and parfaits. It was like a wonderland of desserts full of new surprises and sweet encounters. So, imagine the sadness I felt when the classic ice cream parlor closed down.
August 13, 2012, Robinson's Magnolia, the latest lifestyle shopping center in Quezon City opened its doors to the public giving them a new place to hang out and rekindle memories with friends and families.
Got a chance to visit the place and look what we found! The new Magnolia Flavor House located just outside the mall. We just couldn't pass the chance to try it out since we were already there.
Glass windows sheltered the place giving a spectacular view of the mall. The blue and white chairs gave a contemporary look that exudes a nostalgic vibe.
They are still on soft opening with limited menu offerings. I remember the last time we dined at Magnolia House, they had this huge menu board with extensive food and dessert choices.
I just had to order our classic favorite- Banana Split (P240).
The Banana Split comes with three ice cream scoops of different flavors- chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. It was sprinkled with crushed nuts and mini mallows, drizzled with chocolate syrup and topped with whipped cream and cherry. Then finished off with two slices of chocolate-dipped frozen bananas with candy sprinkles on the side.
If only the bananas were fresh instead of frozen, then I think I would have enjoyed this more. Nevertheless, it was still great being able to have this banana split again.
Magnolia Flavor House Menu:
We're excited to visit Magnolia Flavor House again to try other food offerings. We were told that they would be adding more desserts and dishes soon after their soft opening. Can't wait to bring the whole family here!
