Juan Pastry is barely a month old and it has been drawing lots of foodies, food lovers and the like at El Fresco Park in Quezon City. I like their take on chosen Filipino food, familiar yet with a different preparation and well-thought way of serving.
Pancit in Bagoong Balayan with Spanish Sardines – the Pinoy ‘Pancit’ (rice noodles) but flavored with ‘Bagoong’ (shrimp paste) and topped with Spanish sardines. A unique version of balanced savory flavors.
Seafood Pinoy Pasta in Aligue Sauce – there are ‘Aligue’ (crab fat) pasta in some restaurants but Juan Pastry made it Pinoy by incorporating seafood.
HaloBilo – one of Juan pastry’s unique creation which is a combination of deconstructed Pinoy ‘Halo-Halo’ (fruits, beans, etc. mixed together with condensed milk) and fried ‘Bilo-Bilo’ (sticky rice balls in coconut milk).
Brownie Maruya – ‘Maruya’ (banana fritters) transformed into yummy brownies, another unique Juan Pastry creation.
Beef Caldereta, Laing, Bicol Express and Dinuguan Pie – our favorite Pinoy ‘ulam’ encased in pastry, easy to eat or bring home for the family.
