Weekend means another time for the family. Last week, we treated the whole family all the way to Le Petit Souffle at Century City Makati. One of our favorites! For me, it’s a dessert haven that everyone should try.
I’ve never dined in their branch at Mega Fashion Hall, Megamall but I heard about their latest offering to the Metro Manila food scene – The Workshop Bespoke Bakery!
This is something that will surely elevate the Filipino dessert experience. It is located inside Le Petit Soufflé in Mega Fashion Hall. A bakery par excellence, Workshop’s creations are made fresh daily, with the finest ingredients and crafted by skilled patissiers and bakers. Thanks to Chef Miko Aspiras and Chef Kristine Lotilla for leveling up the dessert game. Each one armed with a background in hotels, the two wanted to go beyond the usual cupcakes, brownies, and cakes and prove that Filipino talent is capable of so much more than your run-of-the-mill desserts.
Chef Miko confides, “As pastry chefs, we wanted a space where we could create. If we ever got inspired, there would be a space for us to do it. This is our working shed.” Oh I wish, I make pastries thiisss good!!! They have unusual menu items such as the Matcha Canelé, the Guava Cheese Tart, artisanal Valrhona chocolate bars, and decadent Entremets — treats you would be hard pressed to find in just any restaurant!
“All of our offerings are made of the finest ingredients, crafted with technique and precision. We give painstaking attention to detail, flavors, and quality. Each creation speaks of our team’s dedication to the art of desserts,” explains Chef Kristine.
And the best part is that the chefs are more than willing to customize desserts for hopeful customers, using all of the flavors, techniques, and inspirations they have gathered from their travels. The Workshop is where fancy meets fun and avant garde. Your potluck dessert contribution will never be the same.
