Highly recommended by the localites, and coincidentally there was a kiosk at the mall opposite Shangrila Edsa..my foodventuras antenna was on the rise. I decided to buy some home to try.
The promoter said that these two items are the trademark pastries. Each piece was about 50-60 peso, if not wrong..that is about RM 5-6 a piece.hmmm..not cheap either. Ah oh well..I bought 6, 4 for myself and 2 for my friend.
When I cut it open, I was expecting the cheese to be cream-based, blended and softened. Instead I find a thickened slab of cheese inside like a Kit Kat! it was a little too dense…almost like eating a cheese flavoured chocolate, overpowering the pastry.
I brought it to church and decided to microwave them to melt the cheese instead. The children loved them and finished them all in an instant!
Very different and unique indeed Philippino’s version of cheese pastries!
