Have you ever heard of Kouign-Amann? (pronounced “queen ah-mann”) translated in Breton is a butter cake. About 450 calories of goodness, I love the buttery and sugary goodness of this pastry. I first learned about them from my dear French friend Cassoui and her family who runs the Restaurant CiÇou along 57 Annapolis Street, Greenhills, San Juan. It was so good that each time she would bring some Kouign-Amann to ballet or a party It would be the first thing I would get even before the food.
This is now one of my favorite desserts in the world, and a part of me doesn’t want to share it to you. (HAHA) Their family has now opened a Kouign-Amann stall in SM Megamall 2nd floor, Fashion hall.
Cheesecake, Ensaymada, Caramel, Bacon and Cheese, PB&J, Chocnut and many other flavors. They bake them fresh everyday and then they refrigerate them in the stall. You can have it heated up for you to eat it there or could probably just buy a box and take them home to heat up yourself. I am not sure if it is traditional to put some toppings on a Kouign-Amann since it is already very rich but I think that it was smart to do so as it would attract more customers catering to the VERY VERY sweet tooth of Filipinos. I have tried the regular ones at their restaurant and the S more’s Kouign Aman as well. If you are looking for something more formal I suggest that you just get yourself to their restaurant instead, but if Kouign-Amann is all you are craving for then this stall is perfect to satisfy your cravings.
I can eat this anytime of the day for sure. Together with some milk probably or coffee.
