Marmalade Kitchen at Forum South, Bonifacio Global City

MARMALADE KITCHEN – While the Forum South Global in Bonifacio Global City (BGC) has been a destination for new food finds and restaurant concepts. And while majority of the diners may be focused on the restaurants in the first level of the complex. You guys should check out the other restaurants as well, like this new restaurant and cafe by Chef Aileen Anastacio tucked in the second floor that serves some good, simple comfort food and amazing sweet tooth treats.

The main reason why I love Marmalade Kitchen is their Fallen Chocolate Cake, a cure to my never ending obsession and cravings for warm and cold type of desserts. This is really, really good! Continue reading Marmalade Kitchen at Forum South, Bonifacio Global City

New Sweet Tooth Treats by Scout’s Honor, Just in Time for the Month of Love

Scout’s Honor has got to be one of my favorite pastry shops that was released last year. A craft cookie place with an exciting milk bar, a make-your-own option, and some of the irresistibly good signature ones that I really really liked. And Chef Miko Aspiras after their stint at the recently concluded world pastry cup in Lyon came bearing gifts of new and exciting ingredients that he transformed to these simple sweet tooth treats.

Light set outer edges yielding this delightfully fluffy and airy consistency, this new treat will be available in Scout’s Honor starting today and comes in three variants of Orange Poppy Seed and Almond, Matcha Black Sesame, Rose Praline.

CROQUE: New Neighborhood Cafe + Bakery in Makati

I’ve been curious about this new neighborhood cafe and bakery for a while and finally got to try their food last year when Zomato asked me to do a food photography workshop for some of their users. It was my first time to do a tutorial / workshop and I tried to keep it simple, taught them the basics about exposure and how to experiment on your lighting and tried my best to be more hands-on with the tips and kind of guide them along the way. Kudos to zomato for wanting to improve the quality of photos from their users and I was honored and happy to help.

CROQUE is a place to get your comfort food fix – from their all-day breakfast staples, pasta, and more filling dishes – food here is simple. The place is cozy with nice chairs and booths with textured wooden tables that make for this charming warm ambiance. Racks of freshly made bread and a dainty bar with an open kitchen serves as a focal point upon entering the place.

Kouign Amann by Cicou – Fantastic Dessert Creations that Will Blow Your Mind!

Kouign Amann are desserts made in food heaven, the first time I tried this delectable sweet tooth treat was at a degustation, where I met Chef Cyrille Soenen of Impressions and Brasserie Cicou in Greenhills, during that dinner we tried the classic and the chocolate version of their kouign amann and I’m telling you it was love at first bite. It was just these layers of butter, flaky pastry and sugar the base was just fantastic! Reminded me of a really good croissant / puff pastry but only more rich and decadent it’s really a treat. I’ve been wanting to go to their restaurant in Greenhills for quite some time but failed since I don’t usually go to that area but I’ve been craving for it since. So imagine my happiness and excitement when they launch this new pastry shop that sells kouign amann and its many permutations! Went there right away to treat myself a box – which I devoured in one seating after I took pictures of them for the feature. 😀
