WIN a Php500 Serye Cafe Filipino GC!


When in Manila, ’tis always the season of giving. After making a post about the delicious goodies from Manilabake, I somehow found myself with two 500-peso gift certificates from Serye Cafe Filipino. These two pieces of paper can be traded in for some snacks from Manilabake (and Serye Cafe Filipino), which is especially great this time of year, what with all the gift sets available.



Let’s see what someone can get from a gift certificate worth 500 pesos:





Manilabake Banana Cream Pie

 Banana Cream Pie, Php 135




The banana cream pie’s awesome flaky texture and flavor (reminiscent of puto seko) did it for me. It works well with the light cream, the Filipino chocolate, and the slightly sweet banana slices.





Manilabake Pineapple pie

 Pineapple Pie, Php 135




Manilabake’s pineapple pie is a flavorful mix of sweet and spicy. It goes well with the puto seko-like crust.





Manilabake Honey cake Sliced

 Honey Cake, Php 110 per slice




Oh, honey cake. A slice is great with a cup of coffee. The crumbly crust is packed with sweet honey goodness, and the inside is filled with a soft, chewy layer of delight! This is a sure must-try, ladies and gents.





Manilabake Calamansi Pull apart loaf in Christmas packaging

 Calamansi Pull Apart Loaf, Php 180




The calamansi pull apart loaf is sweet, tangy, soft and chewy. You can eat it alone or with a nice cup of Tsokolate Ah! And have I told you it’s good? No wonder it’s one of Manilabake’s bestsellers!





Manilabake Calamansi Polvoron

Calamansi Polvoron, Php 120 for 12 pcs 




Each medallion that is calamansi polvoron gives a soft burst of tangy flavor. I myself love it to bits.





Manilabake Macaroons

Macaroons, Php 150 for 12 pcs 




You know how a good marriage requires the right balance of things? Manilabake’s macaroons are just like that. It’s crunchy on the outside, chewy on the outside, and the coconut and sugar are never too overpowering to the palate.





Manilabake Empanada Ala Cubana 2

Empanada ala Cubana, Php 70 




Manilabake’s empanada ala cubana is slightly sweet, slightly peppery, and super delicious. The flaky outer crust is just enough to hold the delicious, meaty filling.



What do you think now? Is your stomach now grumbling? Are you now salivating? Do you want to win a GC?
