I’ve heard about Purple Oven and always wanted to try their products. I finally went to their Oranbo, Pasig branch. It’s behind Dahlia motel in case you have a hard time looking for it.

All the products are displayed on tables and the chiller and their staff follow you around to get your order which you then pick up at the cashier.

I never knew they also had savory baked goods. I bought the sausage quiche and the chicken curry turnover. They were both just satisfactory. Nothing I would really buy again.

I liked the Spanish chorizo turnover better except for the slices of hard boiled egg inside. Remember I don’t like eggs? The crust was flaky when heated properly in the toaster oven.

I bought half a box of lemon bars because a popular blogger raved about it. True it had a very, very good buttery crust and the filling had a smooth and silky texture. But it didn’t have ANY lemon flavor at all!! If you didn’t know what this was you wouldn’t even guess it had citrus flavor. It should have been called sugar bar since it was a tad too sweet for my taste. It would have been perfect with MORE lemon juice. After eating a piece and sharing some with my staff I kept the rest in the freezer. It can be eaten straight from the freezer too.

The main reason for my visit to Purple Oven was to try the chocolate macadamia cookies recommended by one of my readers. Alas, they were out of stock. I have to go back for that.

I find their packaging a bit wasteful. They put each flavor of the turnover in it’s own bag when they could have all fit in one bag. It’s not as if the bag was labelled with the name of the product.

Overall I wasn’t very impressed with the products I bought. I still want to try the chocolate macadamia cookies though. What else is good in Purple Oven? Share your favorites please.

    Love their cinnamon roll and carrot cake. It’s not too sweet at all. I enjoy the icing on top. The apple walnut is delicious and quite moist.

    disappointed that they do not sell slices of cake. find some of their pastries very expensive.

    I finally got the chance to drop by at their San Antonio Village branch. The shop was nice and clean. The cakes all look so delicious… The sad part is they dont selll per slice. How can you order a whole cake if you’ve not even tried it yet? I bought the chocolate-macadamia cookies, 6 pcs at P260+. I was expecting it to taste really special considering the price but ended feeling disappointed. It was too sweet for me, not really something I’d buy again.
    Still curious about the cakes though… Particularly the Lemon Torte Cake.
    I also bought their quiche, crust was right, i liked that it had basil but the filling was too creamy for my liking.
