What comes into your mind when we talk about good pastries? I usually think about nicely baked warm bread with strawberries and cream on top or maybe a wide selection of artisan bread baked to perfection. Recently, I discovered a unique baking venture that will surely capture your hearts – Pasteleria Manila.
I got intrigued with their box sets of Broas Sticks. It was available in three flavors: Red Velvet, Ube and Dulce De Leche. I got to try them all for an afternoon snack. My verdict? Well, I simply love all of them to be honest. Let me give you my scores below:
Dulce De Leche Broas Sticks – This was my most favorite among the three variants. It was not too sweet yet it has that creamy caramel like taste to it. It was also my family and friend’s best pick. I’ll give it an ACE.
Red Velvet Broas Sticks – I think red velvet is a nice flavor although I’m not digging it too much. It has the balanced sweet and creamy taste. Surprisingly, it is best paired with Cocio Dark Chocolate drink. Isn’t it yummy? I’ll give it a HIT.
Ube Broas Sticks – Who doesn’t like purple yam or ube? It’s my favorite flavor especially on pastries. I love how it really taste like ube. I also love the deep dark violet color. It’s best paired with a Cocio Classic Chocolate drink It’s an ACE for me.
I think this was the cutest dessert I have tried so far this year. My younger brother really loves it and he wants some more! I love how the brazo de mercedes are cut into tiny squares and places in a cup. The flavor is well balanced: not too sweet, not bland. I also love how you can just spoon it away! It’s a perfect serving for parties or cocktail events. My score? Of course an ACE!
What I like about Mamon Bitz is that it was soft and delicate even when it was stored for few days. It was lite and fluffy. You can taste the lemon/vanilla flavor on each bite. Isn’t it lovely? I’ll give it an ACE.
Choco Chunk Cookies
It was relatively thick yet very chewy in texture. I love it because it has generous amounts of chocolates. From the name itself, it’s chunky! My verdict? A HIT for me.
