Sweetness at Barili

By Mustachio
Heading home, but we need to stuff ourselves with something. After river crossing Canlaob's fresh water, weren't we craving for something sweet? Well good thing a place in Barili offers the right amount of sweetness.
It took us almost two hours on the bus to arrive at Dakit, Barili. We just told the bus conductor to drop us at the "Milk Station". Most bus drivers know where it is. If you're coming from Cebu City to Barili, it's situated on the right side of the road, past the KM 53 marker. There's also a big "Milk Station" by-the-road sign you can easily spot.
The bus slowed down by the curved road and I can see a big sign with a mini cow on top of it. We heard the conductor say the sweet news: we are now at the Molave Milk Station.

You've probably heard of this place since this has been operating for quite some time now. We've been here a few times and always for one reason - frozen yogurt.

We ordered two cups of frozen yogurt but it was sold-out. We ended up ordering their fresh milk, vanilla ice cream, and Molave Pizza with goat cheese.

At last! Something sweet.


Tell you a little secret, I am lactose intolerant but I really love to drink milk. I even prefer full cream. The milk was just perfect for me - fresh and bland (in a good way). The vanilla ice cream was also good, the only sweet thing we actually tasted. For the pizza, it had the right amount of sauce spread with meat, greens, and chunks of goat cheese on a thin crust. It was served warm but that didn't stop us from munching on it right away. What made it special was definitely the goat cheese.

Goat cheese anyone?


We were now stuffed and ready for another bus ride. This time heading back to the city. This weekend trip had no fixed destination, no estimated budget, and no clear plan on where to go next but it turned out to be an absolutely fun adventure. It's hitting three birds with one stone: Lambug Beach, Canlaob River, then the Milk Station.
We will definitely be coming back for that elusive frozen yogurt. But that's for another day. This time we're craving for something even more sweeter - Home. :-)

Fresh milk from Molave Milk Station Php 25
