This Irresistible Melonpan Is A Must-Try For Ube Cheese Fans

Take a break from ube cheese pandesal!

When quarantine in Metro Manila first started, the now-ubiquitous ube cheese pandesal seemed to only be available from a few shops and home bakers. Now, with over six months gone by, it seems like the pastry is available in every corner store, Instagram shop, and big-name restaurant you can think of. In case you’ve had your fill of the treat, but still want to explore ube-and-cheese-filled breads, you’ll want to order Mantikilya Boulangerie‘s Ube Cheese Melonpan!

Melonpan is a type of sweet bun originating in Japan. What sets the bread apart is its crunchy outer coating, which is made from a thin layer of cookie dough, giving the bun a crispy texture against the soft interior as well as a distinct pattern of criss-cross lines across the exterior. Mantikilya takes the bun and fills it with creamy, nutty ube halaya and gooey melted cheese. The mix of Filipino and Japanese flavors will be hard to resist!

You can get a box of five ube cheese melonpan for P250. Order some for yourself or give them to a special someone who can’t get enough of ube cheese pastries!
