Muhlach Ensaymada, probably, is one of the most delicious ensaymada in town. Not an avid fan of bread, I mean when I wanted a snack, I prefer rice and other foods to munch instead of bread. But when the first time I tasted Muhlach’s, I instantly got hooked. My sister introduced me with this product way back in high school.
Megamelt is owned by the former child star, Niño Muhlach. He established this business under the Aizer-Buns (named after his daughter Aizzer and dog “Bruno”) in the year 2002. Since then, maybe because of the product quality, it has boomed throughout the country.
Availability, Packaging and Price
I bought a box of Muhlach’s Ensaymada at the Megamelt stall in Ever Gotesco Commonwealth. The stall was located in front of the grocery on the ground floor. Anna, the girl taking care of the stall was very friendly, she answered all my questions politely, and she really knows how to deal with customers.
As far as I know, the stalls and branches of Megamelt are everywhere, which only shows that everyone is looking for these products.
A box of Muhlach’s Ensaymada is worth P216.00
A box of assorted flavors of ensaymada is worth P216.00 with 12 pieces, or P18.00 each. This comes in a red, Chinese-like box. There is also a customized plastic for you to carry the box. All the ensaymada placed in the box are not not overlapping each other.
Each ensaymada comes in 75 grams, I can say it’s small.
Based on the size, I found it a little expensive. But, based on the taste, I can say it’s worthy.
Flavors, Taste and Verdict
The Muhlach’s Ensaymada comes in original-cheese flavor, ham, macapuno, salted egg, ube, red beans, yema and chocolate. According to their website, there are seasonal flavors like Pandan, Durian and Banana.
A piece of ensaymada with yema toppings
For me, all the flavors were delicious. The least that I don’t like was the salted egg, but will still chow that flavor when that’s the only choice. The best for me, was the macapuno, and my brothers and sisters will surely agree with me.
I really love this one. The soft texture and the smell is truly making this bread bankable. The cheese loaded on top compliments the bland bread while the toppings or fillings will make each and every chew delectable. I really recommend the macapuno flavor as the sweetness and juiciness of the fillings is a perfect combination for the saltiness of the cheese and the soft of bread. Once you bite the soft bread the macapuno will be squeezed out, exploding in your mouth.
I suggest that they add more size to the ensaymada as a piece is “bitin” for me. I can finish a piece in only two bites.
Truly, an amazing product…
