We found Marks and Spencer Bakery at Eastwood while walking around waiting for the Eastwood City New Year Countdown to 2013. The scent of sweet bread, as well as all of its products being 50% off, were what enticed us to try it out.
Sadly, there was not much stock left when we got there.
We decided to try five items.
Apple turnover (PhP 115): This is definitely our favorite. It has a sweet flaky crust with apple and cinnamon filling — flavorful and addicting. We regret buying just 3 pieces of this.
Almond croissant (PhP 95): The croissant was flaky with generous almond filling. They went a bit overboard on the almond flavoring though.
Cherry and almond tart (PhP 115): The crust was really good, but the filling was average. But that might be because I prefer fresh cherries over preserved ones.
Chocolate chip shortbread (PhP 60): This is like polvoron with chocolate chip — nothing outstanding.
Double chocolate cookie (PhP 50): Chocolate cookie with chunks of chocolate — a must try for chocolate lovers. I don’t mind paying the full price to get this cookie.
Overall, the pastries are good. I can’t wait to go back to Eastwood to get more of the Apple Turnover and Double Chocolate cookies! (I asked the counter lady about the time the discount starts but she didn’t reply. So if any of you know what time it starts, please tell me.)
