I thought Blue Kitchen in Shangri-la is a restaurant. We opted to go to Shangrila last Sunday because this place has good ratings. We were excited to dine and to our surprise, parang pasalubong center pala. We decided to just look for another place where we can eat and bought some malunggay fritters. It was so good that we had to come back to buy some more after our lunch in Sentosa..

Blue Kitchen never seizes to amaze me with awesome new foodie finds. Just spotted that they now sell Toby's Estate Coffee's Buckies!

I first tasted these awesome dark-chocolate brownies when I tried out Toby's at the Century City Mall. Ever since, I've been hooked with these huge, thick, moist, dense, chocolatey sweets.

This visit, Blue Kitchen was selling the Bucky's Original and Bucky's Chunky Blond. Perfect! Nicely packed in Toby's Estate carton boxes with a wooden spatula for easy home slicing.

The Bucky's Original sells at 300 a box. The Bucky's Chunky Blond, 350. A box consists of two slabs of these awesome brownies (equivalent to six pieces if bought at the coffee place). A slice at Toby's would cost 80-90 each. Getting these from Blue Kitchen would cost you about 60 a piece. Not bad! Of course, nothing beats enjoying these pastries with Toby's fine coffee. BUT for the sheer pleasure of brownie indulgence, purchasing a box at Blue Kitchen is a quick sweet fix.

Still loving the rich dark chocolate flavor of the Bucky's Original. And I'm still liking the revel bar take of Bucky's Chunky Blond with its crushed graham crackers, dark chocolate chips, and oatmeal.

They may not have a resto but a few stalls only. Must try these meringue-topped biscuits! And they sell good tasting Spanish sardines on a can too! They have other pastries to choose from. Visit one store to buy their munchies 128513

I'm wondering what makes this bottle php655. Import tax, rent, etc? Anyway, I still gave in to curiosity and bought one to try. So far, I have tried it with a slice of white bread, Marie biscuit, and vanilla ice cream. The spread has the right level of sweetness. It's thick but spreadable. No need to refrigerate. It's loaded with Ovaltine particles. At first, I thought it's better than cookie butter but later on it felt like I was eating chocolate spread with sand in it. Haha! What an imagination but it did cross my mind while eating. It's a bit hard for me to say that I love it because I really think it's pricey when I can buy a really good peanut butter at a fraction of the price or Nutella. The 4 stars is for The Blue Kitchen for bringing in products that are not readily available in local market but I wish they can make them affordable.

Blue Kitchen's Red & Purple bread--aka/just a fancy name for 'Pan de Regla'. Gross story behind the name but I just love snacking on this sweet bread! Reminds me of my childhood days 9786

But for some reason though, I prefer the red bread rather than the purple one. I know it's basically just the same flavor but i have this irrational belief that the purple one is ube haha! Like how I also believed as a kid that those colored putos actually come in different flavors( green-pandan, purple-ube, yellow-cheese, etc.) 128516 Or maybe because the red one is the true and original color of pan de regla.

Regardless of the color, this bread is just old school awesome!128512

Speculoos?? Gotcha. My lola swears to their macapuno, you will never go wrong!

They also sell Trader Joe's products hence my Speculoos greeting haha! But it was out of stock, as expected. Haha!

I just find those Trader Joe's products too expensive! Oh well, my lola got a jar of macapuno and mamon. They accept senior citizen discount also. 128077

Addicted to cookie butter? Taste the original--Lotus Biscoff spread--- the one that started the whole craze.

Blue Kitchen never fails to amaze me. Chanced by their store and saw that they had stock of the original cookie spread. Helped myself with the crunchy variant which i prefer more over the creamy.

Also got a pack of one of the best tasting chocolate cookie crisps I have ever tasted--the Belgian Chocolate Lace Cookies. Cookie crisps laced with rich pure dark belgian chocolate. A once-in-a-while indulgence (a pack costs 545). Charlene N, they have quite a stock of your fave cookies!

I wonder what Blue kitchen will offer next?

Have you ever wondered how the Speculoos Cookie Butter spread started? Get a taste of THE actual cookie that started the craze.

Happily surprised to find the Lotus Biscoff cookies at Blue Kitchen. A pack costs 300. Biscoff is a popular cookie in Europe. Usually taken with coffee.

Also got some of my favorite products from Blue Kitchen:

Pallilos de Joe: Finger sized light crusty , flakey cookies. Made from buttery and sugary filo dough. This is a very delicate and yummy munchy treat. It reminds me of otap but lighter and better. I love this cookie.

And my comfort sweet bread: the Red and Purple bread. It evokes good childhood memories. I used to buy those Pan de Regla or Pan de Pula from neighborhood panaderias. Sadly, the art of baking this kind of bread is slowly dying with the death of those true neighborhood panaderias.

Blue Kitchen never fails to happily surprise me.

One of the few things that has numbed the pain from my neck in recent weeks is Speculoos Cookie Butter. It's like a warm hug, I want to marry! This is to me what the almond croissant from Tous Les Jours is to Stephen. It's marriage-worthy!

I can finish a jar by myself in 4 days. I have it in the morning for breakfast (which I very rarely have) then as dessert in the evening. Because I've been gushing about it just about everywhere and to anyone, my cousin became curious and wanted to try it. She lives in Alabang and Blue Kitchen doesn't have any branches in the South.

I knew that Blue Kitchen in Shangrila Mall was running out of stocks because the staff told me so when I bought some jars for myself a few days before. So I took a leaf out of Edwin's book (Hi, Edwin!128075) and called them to reserve some jars for me to bring to Alabang. They didn't have any more of the crunchy variant left, and only had about 20 jars of the regular variant.

I picked up the yummy goodness that is Speculoos the following day and brought it to Alabang. My cousin loved it, and will hoard the stuff when she goes back to San Francisco.128522128522128522

Speculoos Cookie Butter Spread at Blue Kitchen!!! This specialty food shop never seizes to amaze me with their various gourmet savory and sweet products! This visit, two kinds of products-diversely different: Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter (creamy and crunchy) and Red& Purple Bread-- happy tummy (and calories!)

These sweet spreads are usually on my must-buy list whenever I am in the States. Locally, I used to buy these at Milky Way --but they ran out of stock fast! And it takes ages for them to restock. Sorry, these are not available at those up scale membership only-supermarkets and delis! It tastes like it's original European counterpart -Lotus Biscoff Spread. -- this spread is nothing like Nutella. It's made of gingerbread biscuits thus it has a light cinnamony- graham cracker taste. The crunchy variant, even has actual bits of the biscuit itself. It's excellent with bread, ice cream, pancakes, fruits, or any sweet dish you may fancy. Case in point, the Bono Gelato Speculoos flavor has been trending among Looloo reviewers.

I read one of the reviews of a fellow looloo reviewer who became a certified Bono Speculoos Gelato junkie. She mentioned that she was able to purchase a tub of these hard-to-find Spreads at Blue Kitchen (hi Ariane L.128075). I immediately called Blue Kitchen to reserve. Yep, this is selling out fast!

Finally got me my precious.

Another product that I found at Blue Kitchen sent me back to my childhood. Their Red and Purple Bread.

This is one of those true Pinoy breads that seemingly is dying with the modern times. Red Bread is also known under a lot of names depending on the region where it is sold--Kalihim , Pula, Bellas, Pan de Red, Floorwax, Ligaya Bread, Kabukiran, or the most popular name: Pan de Regla ( I Kid you not 128518- I won't go into the details why it's called that less I gross you out). This sweet bread is a local panadero's specialty made from day-old or unsold bread that is chopped and mixed with sweetened milk and egg. Food coloring is added (the most popular is red , but some come in purple, green or blue). This mixture is then wrapped with a flat bread pastry before baking.

This bread used to be sold at most street corner panaderia. It was the time when everyone's bread was freshly baked every morning. You'll find these stacked in stainless steel trays behind glass counters side by side along with other panaderos' freshly baked specialties- pan de sal, monay, pan de coco, pan de americano, putok bread, pagong, cheese bread, sputnik, Spanish bread, and ensaymada. Traditional Panaderia Classics all slowly fading into obscurity as the Metro has been converted into an Urban Steel & Concrete Jungle and taste buds have been molded towards Western dishes.

It's now hard to find these in the city. I usually get to buy this kind of bread when I go on out-of-town roadtrips and would stop at those provincial panaderias located along the national highway.

Thank goodness Blue Kitchen sells these! Blue Kitchen's version is good! It tastes like the traditional thing. The downside-- much more expensive! Blue Kitchen sells theirs for Php 155- size of which is the same as 6 pieces of the traditional ones (roughly Php 26 each). At a roadside panaderia, a piece of the same size and quality would cost only Php 8-10 ! Oh well, beggars can't be chosers!

Happy with my bag of goodies. Nope, I don't think I'd use the Speculoos on the Red Bread. That'll be too sweet for my taste! I'll have them separately.
