One of my proud finds for 2011 is Max's Brazo de Mercedes.
My family ended in a Max's restaurant for lunch, from a family day activity from my son's school. The cakes looked yummy and we decided to take one out for a try. I ordered a Brazo de Mercedes and was quite surprised at how good it was.
Unlike the usual Brazo de Mercedes from leading bakeries, Max's version is entirely filled up with custard. The cake holds up firmly and doesn't run flat even after cutting through it.
I find it quite a bit creamier and yet less sugary than its counterpartsand at P200 per half roll, I think this one is a steal.
A must taste!
