You Have To Try This Unique Calamansi Ensyamada!

It pairs perfectly with a cup of spicy hot chocolate!

Sometimes, you can find the most surprising finds in the most uncanny places. At Baker Brothers in SM Aura, you can find Honey and Calamansi ensaymada. Baker Brothers is a cozy café that offers Asian-European comfort food and “Progressive Filipino Cuisine,” according to owner Chef Robert Lilia.

Baker Brothers' whole wheat Honey and Calamansi Ensaymada (P120) is a sweet and tart pastry, with soft brioche bread which pairs perfectly with their Native Hot Chocolate with Sili (P150). This unusual ensaymada-and-hot-chocolate combo is one you should try!

Baker Brothers also has other treats worth sinking your teeth into: the Native Chocolate & Peanut Butter Pie (P150/slice; P750/whole) is simply a bigger and localized version of a popular peanut butter and chocolate treat, but with stronger peanut butter flavors and less sugar.

The Native Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is so delicious that we don't recommend it for sharing.

For a heftier meal, you can enjoy a plate of Baker Brothers' modern take on comfort food. The Funky Chicken (P290, two pieces; P480, four pieces; P740, six pieces) is a roasted chicken cooked with familiar yet surprising flavors: Honey Sesame Chili, Five Alarm Chili, or the Herb & Calamansi sauce. If you’re looking to take your love for sinigang to the next level, you should try Chef Lilia’s personal menu favorite, the Corned Beef in Sinigang Gravy with Organic Garlic Corn Spinach Rice (P330/single; P620/sharing).

You can never go wrong with a well-seasoned chicken!

What makes Baker Brothers progressive is chef Robert’s initiative to use only the freshest locally and ethically-produced ingredients you can find in the market—an initiative to help our farmers and put a spotlight on our local produce. His efforts to support the local food scene is most evident with Baker Brothers’ delicious pastries, unique beverages, and modern comfort food.
