Ube is the Next Big Thing! This Café in L.A. Makes Ube Desserts

Filipino cuisine has become a huge hit in the U.S., especially in its bigger cities like Los Angeles. May it be the sheer number of Filipinos living there or its sunny disposition, but Filipino dishes, have come to see new light in many of the younger chefs’ contemporary take on many traditional local flavors.


Ube has been predicted as the next big flavor, and Café 86 at Pasadena gets creative with this purple yam, creating decadent desserts like their Halo-Halo Bread Pudding and other seasonal finds including this gorgeous ube cupcake topped with leche flan.


Have you tried any unique ube desserts lately?
