There is this food place in Gil Puyat, just in front of the BBL Bus Terminal, that sells bread and other meals. Last Monday, because I woke up late and took a long time preparing to go to work that I was late for 2 hours, I decided to stop by this place to let the sunshine in from all this thumpings.
I didn’t know that I was about to discover something great–the superb Macapuno Pie. Now, this pie is just small, I guess it’s just 2 inches in diameter. The base is a pie, soft and nice, next is a thick layer of egg custard but I’m not really sure because the consistency is like that of a custard but the taste is a bit bland–not so sweet which is perfect for the top layer of macapuno. It was quite expensive at Php 22 per piece. But it’s worthy of my cravings!
I guess it’s just fit to be called a craving because I exerted an effort to go there a while ago for dinner.
The bakeshop is called Simply Bread but it was inside Chubby Checker and the bread and pies are made by Chef Andrew according to the label on the plastic bag. They have other bread and tarts, and pies but I haven’t really tried them, the macapuno pie just happened to catch my attention.
