Love, Z Bakery & Patisserie

Being a creature of habit, I usually stay true to my tried and tested food places. But once in a while when I’m feeling adventurous (ha!) I go out of my way and try new things. In this case, a new patisserie. Venture a little bit north and you’ll find the lovely Love, Z Bakery & Patisserie outside Filinvest Gate 1, stop number 2 on our Manila Food Trip 2017.

Love, Z is the brainchild of a group of friends brought together by their love for food and good conversation. Having spent so much time in restaurants, cafes, and other establishments, they eventually decided to create a place of their own and thus Love, Z bakery was born.

We welcomed their freshly baked pastries, cakes, breads, and our beverage of choice (I had coffee, of course). Having had our fill of rice and heavy servings of chicken from the previous food crawl, it was nice to just sit down, chill for a bit, and catch up. I was seated with Rocky and Gellie, fellow coffee lovers and dessert aficionados.

Poultry Stack

I am a homegrown Quezon City girl so it’s pretty obvious that our default for easy eats would be the Banawe, Tomas Morato or the Scout area. Just when I thought I’ve seen and tried all the places within the vicinity, another quirky restaurant opens up and it’s called Poultry Stack.

This was the first stop of the day of the Manila Food Trip 2017 event organized by Ms. Aileen Octaviano of the Pampanga Bloggers’ Society where I was invited by my fellow beauty blogger and Kapampangan, Gellie Abogado. This was also the first food crawl I participated in.
