Pastries and Coffee have been our partners in keeping our mood up and our mind awake and alert when we need to pull an all-nighter. Feeling both overwhelmed and underwhelmed of everything that is happening around us, or even when we just want to take a breather, these two have really a big help, and so when we tumbled upon The Custard Buns and their well-loved offering of both, we know we just have to have them!
The Custard Buns has brought to Manila a famous street snack in Bangkok and it is none other than their soft and fluffy chargrilled bread generously filled with custard inside. Their buns, which are inspired from that popular Bangkok street snack, has that delectable smoky taste that goes well with that delicious kick of caffeine which The Custard Buns is also offering in the form of TCB Espresso.
Their offering of Custard Buns comes in an array of lip-smacking good flavors such as Ube Plain, Ube Cheese, Mango Graham, Cheesy Mango, and Crunchy Peanut Butter.
