Merienda: Cafe Via Mare

After an afternoon of shopping in Greenhills, my sisters and I were suddenly hit by a craving for a Pinoy merienda; and what better place to get some kakanin other than Via Mare?

We ordered our usual favorites:

Palitaw – An order consists of 3 pieces of small, flat, soft, sweet rice cake loaded with niyog (dessicated coconut), sugar and seasame seeds.

Puto bumbong with niyog and muscovado sugar – Via Mare is the best place to go too for puto bumbong outside the holiday season.

For dessert, there’s their dessert sampler called Shooters which consists of Mais con Hielo, Guinamis, and Halo-halo.

The next time you’re looking for great kakanin, head over to a Cafe Via Mare – a truly Filipino cafe.
