Im not really sure what kind of pastry this is. All I know it is a specialty from Bacolod
and the first time I tasted this is when we provided accommodation to two youth that attended the youth congress at our Church. They were both from Bacolod
and brought us a box of this delicacy and I enjoyed it although the pastry puff was a little difficult to bite.
Then to my usual route from work to Megamall I found this stall near the escalator and a little near to the entrance of the mall called Napoleones
. I went over and saw that it looked exactly like the one I tasted and so I had to try it. The temptations I go through everyday ahaha
. It was worth Php17 each and you can also buy it in boxes, but then I just bought one to give it a try.
Well, it was worth buying it and even tasted better than the one I tasted that was brought all the way from Bacalod
. This pastry was not difficult to munch on it was actually a little crunchy then once you bite the center it becomes deliciously soft, and the pastry was stuffed with the creamy custard filling and topped of with the white crystal like icing on top.
I would recommend that this joint should add coffee as well, I think it would go well with the sweetness of the pastry. But then again, it was just a stall more of a pasalubong stand and on the go finger food. Maybe next time I would buy a box then enjoy it at home with a cup of coffee LOL.
