One thing this quarantine has definitely taught us is that unusual food combos tend to be the best ones! From the iconic ube cheese pandesal, to mouthwatering leche flan donuts, and now, the newest "quarantreat" gaining traction, Brazo de Mercedes Cheesecake!
Based in Pasay City, Simply Pastries by Sidney offers us a depth of flavor in each layer of their signature bestseller. The name actually speaks for itself—imagine all the elements of the classic brazo: toasted meringue and creamy custard, all sitting on a cheesecake base that just melts in your mouth!
Fun fact: While the greater internet is only taking notice of this sweet combo now, the shop's Brazo de Mercedes Cheesecake has actually been their best-selling selling product for over eight years and counting!
These goodies are available as whole cakes, in 8-inch (P650) or 9-inch (P850) variants. If you want them bite sized, you can also get them in bars (P650/dozen)—perfect for sharing or keeping them all to yourself!
Craving for more sweets? Simply Pastries by Sidney also puts their own spin on Filipino desserts and pastries, such as the classic Pan De Coco (P350/dozen), Quezo de Bola Tres Leches (P880/8 inches, P600/8x8 tray, P400/loaf), Ube Cheese Milk Buns (P380/10 pcs.), and more!
