I like Hattendo Buns, they remind me of a chilled version Vatel Pastel Buns from Camiguin. The only difference is Hattendo comes in different fillings and the bread is softer and the filling is bursting at the seams! And the price is not lower than 100pesos per bun (except during periodic sale periods). He buns are imported directly from Japan which assures you that you are getting the real thing.

I buy one whenever i am in the area and on promo. I love it. They are always frendly and offers free taste to sway you over.

My last stop yesterday, HATTENDO. Hattendo offers custard filling bun from Japan that you need to eat within 24-hours.

I decided to avail the promo for Azuki Bean and Butter Bun for Php100.00 (original price is Php125.00) and Custard Bun for Php80.00 (original price is Php118.00). You can eat the Custard Bun direct to your drooling mouth even it is cold but for Azuki Bean and Butter you need to use an oven for 30 seconds for better quality.

Azuki Bean and Butter - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5

Hattendo is located at the 2nd Level Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.

Saw Hattendo in SM Aura the other day and I gave it a shot. Got their bundle of 4 for 420Php. Wow! Really expensive! But then I hoped that with the price I paid for such small buns, I will be blown away and left speechless. I was waiting for a shut-up and take my money moment!

I got their best sellers - custard and chocolate, then got the Matcha and Mango. I tried the Matcha first and thought that it was okay 128530 The bun was soft, melt in your mouth type BUT nothing was special about it. Comparable to local dinner rolls or those buns filled with savory or sweet treats in Bread Talk. Then the cream filling --- errr just okay too. The Matcha didn't have that signature lasang damo bitter but addicting taste to it. It was creamy and the serving was generous but didn't find anything special.

Then the custard was okay, chocolate was okay too but the mango was standout. Maybe I'm just a sucker for mango with cream.

Anyhow... I could safely say that I wouldn't get myself involved with Hattendo again. Why so expensive? Maybe because they were baked in Japan and flown here? 128563

Got to try their chocolate and mango variants last Sunday. Both tasted good! The buns had the texture similar to ensaymadas and they sandwich custard fillings inside. I'll like them in terms of taste but I find it too pricey to shell out my money. 128517 nice packaging btw.

Someone please give me the original custard flavored buns! I want to tryyy 128514 ayokong bumili 128514

The Ate was not too friendly also. 128513

Since I have a thing for custard-filled bread, I persuaded or more like had to treat my sister and her girlfriend to Hattendo so I can try it 128540

We tried the best sellers, custard and matcha flavor. really loved it 128525 The chilled filling oozed out when I bit through the airy bun.

The catch is it's expensive for just a piece of bread. P118/piece. Oh well, the cost of having bread made in Japan fo your consumption. I would love to receive this as a gift though 128514128514128514

My cousins and I had a little food trip over the holidays at Megamall... Well, after a snack, dinner and dessert #1, my cousin dragged us to this stall for dessert #2... Because you can't have too many desserts ever! 128514

It was my first time to try this treat... It's a bun filled with custard in the middle... They have several flavors available, such as mango, custard, matcha, red bean, chestnut and chocolate... We chose the custard, red bean and matcha flavors, which we shared amongst the three of us...

The bun was very soft with a nice texture... The custard was light and airy... I liked the whipped cream and matcha flavors, I didn't quite appreciate the adzuki flavor... I thought the dessert was okay overall, but I don't think I'll be a return customer... Kindbof expensive!128513

Loved it but i think its a little pricy for a small bun, its like a modern take or a sosyal presentation of a dirty ice cream in a pandesal..

Just wanted to try it, so i got a custard-filled one. Nothing great. At 118 a piece, id rather spend my money on ice cream. Plus, iont think it's really as fresh and natural as they say it is. 128517

I've been hearing about Hattendo through the foodie grapevine.  The first branch was in Megamall.  Proximity and laziness make a lethal combination,  it makes you forget things.  Suffice to say that i forgot about Hattendo after a couple of days.

While i was killing time at Plant,  i saw a small kiosk at the lower ground floor, part of the weekend Baker's Fair.  Then it hit me,  Hattendo!  I was destined to try this yummy treat.

Bought the matcha and custard flavoured buns.  The lady behind the counter asked if the buns will be consumed immediately or will be taken home.  I said the buns will be annihilated seconds after she hands 'em to me.  For those who will buy takeaway, they will provide blue ice good for 120 minutes,  this will ensure that the pastry remains chilled.

Custard.  This is refreshingly light and oozing with creamy custard filling.  The pastry is light,  exudes the sponge cake vibe.  The pairing is phenomenal,  place custard inside a melt-in-your-mouth bun and voila - Magic!  The custrard makes its creamy way through the tiny chambers of the bun making it even more flavourful.  It is like a sponge absorbing all the creamy goodness of the custard.  You get the picture,  yes?  This is perfect for humans who isn't too fond of sweets.  Light and not Diabetes-inducing.

Matcha.  I am guessing they mixed green tea with the custard cream.  Not a matcha fan, but i liked the flavor combination.  Light with a matcha aftertaste (good aftertaste,  not the annoying kind). 

Hattendo is a lil pricey for the normal Juan Dela Cruz.  Overall,  i recommend Hattendo for the select individuals who appreciates subtle flavor combinations and is willing to shell out dough for a cream bun.

We ordered custard and it taste good, delicious even but very expensive, P100 for 1 small bun. I probably won't buy again.

Tried their #1 bestseller the Custard Cream Bun. It was ok, not too sweet and the bun was soft. They have a promo now, Php100/bun (down from Php118). Gonna try their Matcha and Mango soon.

Finally tried Hattendo! According to the lady who served me these chilled cream buns, they come straight from Japan. They also have specific instructions about how long you can keep it stored. Didn't pay much attention to that as I was going to eat it right away.

Tried the Custard flavor and... Well, I don't think it was life changing. I mean sure it was good, the bun was really really soft and the custard filling cool and airy yet creamy (and not too sweet) but it's just not something I'd go gaga over. Just okay.

At Php 118 a piece, I think I would rather add a about 30 pesos more to get a cup of buttercream Dojo ice cream.

Still open to trying the other flavors though. But I'm in no rush to do that.

Hattendo 's addicting Japanese Chilled Cream Buns are now available locally.

Our local foodie market continues to grow with well-loved Japanese snacks. The opening of the 1st local franchise of Hattendo brings the popular Japanese chilled cream filled buns-snack to our local food scene.

I first came across this confection a few years back when a former Japanese colleague of mine came to visit and gave me a box as a present. It was love at first bite. Then some years after, I came across their stall at the Shinagawa train station in Tokyo. That was then, when these affordable sweet buns ended up as one of my favorite anytime Japanese snack in the hotel. It was indeed foodie happiness to see that Hattendo is now available locally.

Hattendo was established in 1933. These popular chilled pastries aren't quite like cream puffs or those popular sweet buns from Cagayan de Oro called Pastel. The handmade confections are made of pillow-soft melt-in-your-mouth buns (something like a cross between a soft but chewy dinner roll and sponge cake) stuffed with a delicious mix of custard and Rich yet very light Japanese whipped cream. Their flavored variants incorporate the flavoring ingredients into the yummy cream filling. The buns are quite addictive and a piece or two isn't enough.

Their local branch carries 7 flavors. My favorites are their Custard (Original) , Chocolate, Matcha, and Azuki Red Bean.

The Custard is their basic flavor. The stuffing is made a mix of custard and rich whipped cream. It tastes like a soft bun filled with lightly sweet dulce de leche.

The Matcha flavor is a refreshing flavor where gyokuro green tea powder is incorporated into the custard cream filling. A perfect choice for matcha fans.

The Chocolate flavor has a rich and lightly bittersweet chocolate taste that nicely melds with the custard cream.

The Azuki Red Bean flavor has bits of sweet red beans mixed with the custard cream (somewhat like a creamy, light hopia flavor) .

The Philippines is the 2nd country where Hattendo branched out (they have branches in Korea).

These confections should be stored and eaten chilled. The nice thing from the local branch is that if you purchase a box of six (any flavor) , they will provide "blue ice" to keep your purchase chilled for 2 hours. Their pricing is relatively the same as in Japan. A piece costs php 80 (in Japan a piece costs Yen 200). A box of 6 costs php 354. By Philippine standards, perhaps a bit on the expensive side. But considering that these buns are imported and made in Japan, the pricing is reasonable. Since the local branch just opened, they have an on going promo until the end of May 2015-- a free piece (your choice of flavor) for every box of 6. They also have bite size pieces for customers to sample.

Hattendo comes highly recommended to sweet tooth foodies who enjoy deliciously addicting cream filled sweet buns.
