Kumori Bakery, Part 3

And the Kumori saga continues.

So the other day, I was badly craving for turon but by the time I went to the stall, they just have three kamote cue sticks left.  No more turon. To relieve my frustration, I then headed to Kumori to try the pastries I haven’t had yet.

I bought three totally different pastries:  their signature hanjuku cheese cake (chocolate); green apple bun, and cherry brioche.  Total damage is PhP 141, or about 3 – 4 USD.  Let’s not talk about the calories and all the sugar though, ok 😉

So that’s three down, and plenty more to try and enjoy~




Kumori Bakery, Part 2

I’ve been craving for sweets again (but then again, it’s maybe more of a habit rather than a craving! haha!) and besides, it’s that time of the year when we corporate slaves get our midyear bonus, so why not give ourselves a treat?

Mine came in two, and these cost me just a little over PhP 200 combined. Continue reading “Kumori Bakery, Part 2”

Kumori Japanese Bakery: a Review

First things first:  why the gloomy name? 😐 (“kumori” means cloudy, that’s why.) But now that I got that out of the way, I’ll go ahead and with the star of this entry:  the pastries :3

In a quest to appease my sweet tooth, I scouted the newly opened restaurants at The Block after finishing today’s groceries.  Kumori kind of reminded me of Jipan, so I went in and checked out the pastries.  I stayed away from their salmon bonito pastry; I believe salmon is better paired with rice; and while their green apple pasty looked pretty, I turned my attention to their shelf with cheesecakes, pudding and most importantly, cake.

I ended up with three items to go: their signature Hanjuku Cheesecake; Choco Marshmallow Yakigashi; and Sakusaku Chocolate Cake.

In terms of portion, I’d say it’s filling enough for me; price, reasonable, and the taste, a big hit for the cheese cake.  So when craving for not-so-sweet sweets, Kumori is one bakeshop worth checking out.
