It’s that time of the year again… Christmas! Yay! We only have 36 days left before the most anticipated holiday (here in the Philippines, of course). Beautiful lights all throughout the long stretch of houses twinkling like stars reminding us that indeed, it is the time again. I haven’t bought anything for Christmas yet, mainly because of the load of works we currently have in our school. And going out during the weekends seemed impossible for me because I have classes during Saturdays. Basically, my only time to rest is Sunday. But sometimes, Sunday means a day to finish projects and papers that I will probably cram if I won’t do it right now.
Anyway, yesterday, as I was really exhausted by all the things that I’ve done and have yet to do, I craved for cream puffs! When I was waaaay younger, my aunt will buy these average-sized with melts-in-your-mouth-goodness cream puffs from I-don’t-know-the-name bakery. It basically stayed that way until yesterday. I kept bugging my mom to buy cream puffs, not the one Monde (a local brand I think), but the one we used to eat back in the day. So we asked my aunt where it was located. And much to my surprise, it’s just around the town! Now after meeting up with someone, we went back home and eagerly went to now-I-know-the-name-of-the-bakery Mabini Home Bakeshop. It can easily be found; just along the street of A. Mabini. It stood there for about 50 years now. I think that they started baking 1966; haven’t closed since then.
The exterior pretty much reminded me of Becky’s Kitchen in P. Ocampo (used to be Vito Cruz), and it is also just along the street; to where we always buy my mom’s favourite Caramel Cake, and Chocolate Fudge Cake which I am currently munching.
While the interior of the bakeshop reminds me of Café Mary Grace.
We aren’t aware that there are tables and chairs where you can dine in. I wasn’t prepared at all and didn’t think that I wanted to blog about it until we started devouring our ordered foods. Continue reading “Home of the Dream Puffs”
