Magnum Manila Pleasure Store

There's a fancy and a cozy place to hangout at SM Aura Sky Park 5th Floor starting April 8, Tuesday. Allow me to play a little like fortune teller here as I would like to predict that it's going to be a romantic dining place. Check out the photo below!

I was fortunate to be invited to the media launch sometime last week. It happened on the day that we're scheduled (my hubby and I) to leave for Baguio but we wouldn't want to miss Magnum so we took the afternoon trip. We're so excited to try Magnum Manila's line up of dishes and fancy desserts.

Just a piece of advice, starting April 8 if you happen to visit Magnum Manila and see a long queue better wait for it's all worth the trip.

In Magnum Manila, you'll get to taste Magnum creations and experience this pop-up restaurant concept called Magnum Pleasure Store. Yes, it's a pop-up restaurant and it might not stay that long so better pay a visit anytime soon. When you do, don't forget to MAKE YOUR OWN MAGNUM Bar!

Magnum has few restaurants around the world,  From Milan and Cannes to New York and London, Jakarta and now in the Philippines. It had been so popular place abroad serving special dishes and oh so pleasurable specialty Magnum Ice Cream desserts. I've read blogs of Magnum abroad, it has a gorgeous interior.

Here in Manila, I've been to the place once, my husband twice (the first one he was just standing outside the cafe LOL!) He was the first to tell me about it, I don't have any idea about it. Finally, the moment we've been waiting for to have our very own Magnum Pleasure Store has arrived.


We started with delicious Crostinis Three Ways one of which is a salmon and Cajun Spiced Chicken Poppers. I like the Asian Steak Salad, my husband talks about the creaminess of Kabocha Pumpkin Soup.

We had several dishes but my favorite was the tasty Seared Salmon with Basil Creme and Chorizo Confit. The mashed potato soft, veggie fresh on a bed of delicious basil creme.

It was my favorite and I will have it again on my next visit, highly recommended!

Juicy, huge Mushroom burger served with fries on the side was another favorite.

I moved around, went to the bar and started making my own Magnum. For only P100, you can create your make your own Magnum and choose from a wide array of toppings and dips.

Here's how to make your own Magnum Bar!


Step 1: Choose 3 from 18 toppings

Step 2:  Choose from 2 Magnum Ice Cream Bars (Vanilla or Chocolate)
Step 3:  Choose one from 3 chocolate dips (dark chocolate, white or milk chocolate)

Step 4: Gentle shake (using a shaker) with toppings inside and placed on both sides your Magnum Bar.

By the way, these 18 toppings are actually categorized into three: the first row are called classic (nuts, chocolate, pretzels) the third are the adventurous (chili).

Step 5: A drizzle of white, milk or dark chocolate on top of your created Magnum bar. It's almost ready!

I had pistachio, dried raspberries and few chili flakes! Yes, you heard me right. I'm not really a fan of spicy food but let me tell this experience later on...

Step 6: Finally, the little "M" on top of it.

Presenting my own Magnum Bar! I love the combination of three toppings - crunchy pistachio and a little kick of spiciness with the sweetness of ice cream melts in my mouth!

Here's my favorite, the Cookie Dough Skillet (P250), warm chocolate chip cookie dough topped with two vanilla Magnum bars, dark chocolate and chopped pecans. I love the warm, soft and just right sweetness of the cookie dough.

SM Aura is quite far from our place in QC, but with this trendy and gorgeous place serving our favorite dessert, Magnum I would go extra mile to dine once in a while at the newly opened Magnum Manila Pleasure Store. I hope to be back (many times) before this pop-up store closes!

Look who's happy with his own masterpiece Magnum Bar!
