Gourmet Pao from SM North EDSA

Custaroons from Libis

...tasted them both this week for the first time and loved them!!!

I bought them online (half off from the usual price) from Groupon Philippines last April and decided to redeem them this week. After I redeemed my first voucher for a box of cupcakes last weekend (which turned out to be a disappointment for me), I was hesitant about getting these two...but since I already paid for them, we decided to go and get them anyway. Good thing we did!

The Gourmet Pao became our breakfast (except for the two-year old, who wanted his cereals and choco drink) after a 15-min. steam. I personally loved their wheat buns filled with the not-so-usual fillings like tuna, bacon, cheese, olives, tomato sauce, sisig, scrambled eggs...etcetera. The buns were color-coded, but I never really bothered to look at the list. lol. I just know that I will be buying from them again! Would love to try their vegetarian variants (it wasn't included in the deal)....

The Custaroons, on the other hand, became our dessert. We got the mini custaroons and it was a good thing since it was quite a good way. I like eating sweets, but not too much {i must be getting old, LOL} but since these were mini custaroons I easily devoured two...and a half. lol. Love their elegant! :)

After my cupcake experience, I told myself I'd steer clear of the deals being offered online again...but no. Silly me, I purchased another voucher for a pizza meal! LOL. Just can't resist good food and sweet deals. ;P

I've been looking forward to trying yang Gourmet Pao na yan ever since I saw people tweeting about how good they are. Waaahhh. Fine! Eto na, nasa top na ng list ko ng to-eat hahaha.

Like you, I am very hesitant in purchasing online because I am not so sure of what I am getting. The gourmet pao I think I have seen somewhere, and thanks to what you wrote, I think I might try it out, too.
