Here’s something fresh from the oven! It’s called Chewy Buns by Pastry Amore, a home-based shop in Quezon City. I have featured some of their amazing products before such as Salted Caramel Chocolate Layer Cake, Moist Chocolate Liquor Cake, Sticky Buns and Premium Ensaymadas. In this post, let me share with you their new product. Chewy Buns Love can be many things. It can be sweet, bittersweet, nutty, and exciting just like these buns. These chewy buns by Pastry Amore look so good. And once you open the package, you will love the luscious bread aroma.
As promised, here is the second part of my #SupportYourLokal | Christmas Gift Ideas. just a quick recap, part 1 consists of pantry essentials – Pik-a-Pikel and Jacob’s Gourmet Foods as well as something sweet – Chookies and That Awkward Baker. This time I am sharing with you classic Pinoy delicacies that are essential during Filipino holiday feasts – Kakanin or rice cakes eaten as snack or breakfast. Since these are sticky and sweet, kakanin symbolises the close relationship of Filipino families and friends. There are three places I highly recommend.
Located in Mandaluyong City, Goryo’s Coffee ALA EH offers homemade Tamales or Suman sa Lihiya as they call it in Batangas and Quezon. Their choices of toppings include santan (Minatamis na bao), latik and budbod (toasted coconut) or fresh niyog with budbod and sugar with sesame seeds. I prefer the santan, latik and budbod. Here’s a closer look.
