Local food shop Lola Nena’s is best known for their chewy, melt-in-your-mouth pichi-pichi and other merienda products. Their branches in and around Metro Manila are open for take-out only, so you may have some fond memories of eating their treats on the road or picking them up for a potluck gathering. If you love their famous pichi-pichi topped with cheese, you’ll want to check out their latest offering: Triple cheese doughnuts!
This impossibly fluffy pastry boasts a soft, airy doughnut base that’s bursting with melted cheese inside and finished off with a crumbly sugar coating. What you get is a satisying mix of salty and sweet flavors with a pillowy texture and just a touch of crunch thanks to the sugar. Lola Nena’s recommends heating these doughnuts in the oven for a few minutes to get it crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside.
Here’s a closer look:
If you prefer a lighter variation of this sweet treat, they’ve got classic doughnuts, too. You can always save the cheese doughnuts for special occasions or days when you want to treat yourself!
Lola Nena’s triple cheese doughnuts (P200/eight pieces) and classic doughnuts (P120/eight pieces) are available on GrabFood and at their branches nationwide.
