Daily Quickie: My Pink Wasabi's Kashi Maki

Daily Quickie is a short tag on the title which I use for blog entries about food I'm snacking at home, work or anywhere.

Last Sunday, my beau finally gave in to one of my requests -- to visit Mercato Centrale. Although we weren't able to really enjoy the experience as we walked from Bonifacio High Street's parking lot to MC Home Depot under the scorching heat of the sun at high noon, I finally got to try one of the reasons why I've long wanted to visit this food bazaar -- My Pink Wasabi's Kashi Maki.

Kashi Maki

A combination of 2 things I love -- Japanese cuisine and sweet desserts, these Kashi Makis are mini cakes meticulously hand-rolled into small bundles of goodness. My date bought me 2 orders of the 5-piece Kashi Maki samplers (P130) which had a piece each of the Marula, Midnight Mint, Oolong Berry, ChocoLocco and White Matcha flavors.

Kashi Maki from My Pink Wasabi

Each flavor from the sampler was good and the base cake was incredibly moist even after sitting in the fridge for some time, but what I love about them is their right amount of sweetness, coupled with a seemingly nutty taste. They're perfect meal enders or quick snacks. And although I loved each one of the Kashi Makis I got to try, I still had my own set of favorites -- Marula (rich, creamy and very chocolatey), ChocoLocco (very nutty inside and out) and Midnight Mint (rich, creamy and minty).


I may not have personally greeted and thanked Chef Anna and Chef Ken for their wonderful creations (I do blame the heat of the sun for making me a little cranky that day), but I'm very sure this isn't the first and last time I'll have My Pink Wasabi's Kashi Maki.

  2. @Pink Wasabi: It's me who should thank you chef Anna.. :) Thank you for bringing us these lovely Kashi Makis <3

    @Cha: We weren't able to try a lot of the food items in Mercato so I think I'll be back again soon. If you like some Kashi Makis from My Pink Wasabi, they'll be in Eastwood tomorrow and the next weekends.. :3 I'm not sure if that's nearer from your place, but it definitely is from my home.. XD

  12. Mercato Centrale Review: mainit, mabaho, madumi, dami aso kasabay mong kumain, parang palengke, over priced, pinasosyal na kainan sa bangketa

    Verdict: magkamatayan na, di na ako babalik kahit kailan.

    Sana mapadpad ako sa Bonifacio High street hehe

  15. I tried a couple of their "sushis" before but they weren't too memorable for me. Perhaps it's because the samples they gave out at UTT were too tiny.

  23. Wow, seems so interesting to visit and try this foodies--though I am not a fan of sweets, but it doesn't mean I can't eat it at all.

    Perhaps, this time I would try it once I get back.

  29. Pink wasabi is worth trying for sa mga food lover and blogger .I haven't tried pink wasabi yet and never been to that place.

    ReplyDelete
  32. They look delectable! Too bad, BHS is so far from me! Hayy!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Aww!! that looks so sinful but I sure won't mind trying them out.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I haven't been to Mercato yet...wahhh!

    ReplyDelete
  35. They look like the real thing! :P I hope i can drop by mercato for these :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Uy, interesting concept! My problem with desserts is that I find them too rich sometimes! Nakaka-umay! But this one, being bite-sized, seems perfect for me. I can get several flavors in one order and each piece is just enough to make my taste buds happy. When I drop by Mercato, I'll look for their stall.. Or, I hope there's a way to order online :D
