leche talaga...

When I was five, we’d spend Sunday mornings biking inside Elliptical Circle and having brunch at Aristocrat. They had the best BLT, and I remember getting upset when, in one visit, it was out of stock. I may have been five but I knew that not having bacon, lettuce and tomato in stock was unforgivable.

Anyway, as I got older and got over my fear of orange rice, I developed a real appreciation for Aristocrat’s Pork/Boneless Chicken BBQ with Java Rice. And let’s not forget, it came with the only atchara (pickled… stuff) I ever bothered to eat.

Years and countless branch closings later, I’ve found a new reason to visit any of the two remaining Aristocrat outlets (there’s the original resto in Malate, the one in Jupiter, and another one, soon to rise, in T. Morato).

Get out! Get out now and get your hands on Aristocrat’s Mucha Leche cake.



It’s best served straight from the freezer so that eating it will be like eating leche flan and pastillas de leche in rich, creamy, soft ice cream form. I'm no expert but something tells me it's made of milk.

By the way, this is Miguel, your bogchinoypi chikiting reporter from the North.

Call 8995035 (Aristocrat Bakeshop, Jupiter St. branch) first to check if they have it in stock. P370 for the whole cake. A pittance for a cake that’s de calidad

I will try to call, but, here, in Brazil, it might be difficult!
what a delicious blog!

The ambiance of their Malate branch (or lack thereof), coupled with ridiculously high prices, leaves much to be desired.

But I still do live and die for their boneless chicken bbq. Best enjoyed delivered.

Wow! We have readers from Brazil!

I must admit, ang sarap nga nung Mucha Leche! One of the yummiest birthday cakes I've had so far. Thanks Miguel! Good call. Although personally, I like it a bit gooey and melted.

Try to check out Aristocrat's Torta de los Reyes next time you're there. Possibly even better than the Mucha Leche. Layers of flaky meringue, cream and chocolate. Kinda like REALLY good chocolate Sans Rival.

cramulius, if ever you do find yourself in this part of the world, im sure karabau would be happy to take you around.

wysgal, i always thought that the malate branch's lack of ambiance was the ambiance. hahaha. that's what nostalgia does for you. but yes, chicken bbq...

kara, and i thought the mucha leche was hard to beat. sige sige, i'll try out the torta de los reyes (most probably named after the Reyes's who put up Aristocrat... doh)... after my bbq with java rice.

aristocrat tayo! :D

gino. i asked the aristocrat bakeshop in jupiter and they didn't know if it was open. BUT i was in greenhills today, and it was open. i dont know lang if they have a bakeshop, or if it's just the resto
