This Limited-Edition Sans Rival Cake From Mary Grace Is Here to Stay

Now's your chance to try this treat with toasted almonds.

There’s something especially timeless about sans rival, the Filipino-favorite pastry with European roots. With layers of dacquoise, buttercream, and nuts, it entices with its rich flavor and contrast of crisp, creamy, and crunchy textures. While most versions employ cashews, this new version by Mary Grace Cafe—dubbed the Toasted Almond Sansrival (P595/mini, P1,595/whole)—highlights crunchy, buttery almonds. It was introduced in May as a limited-edition Mother’s Day special, but it’s back and has now been made a mainstay according to their Facebook page.

If you want to take a bite of Toasted Almond Sansrival, you can get it at Mary Grace cafes and kiosks around the Metro for pickup. You can see the list of open Mary Grace branches here.
