Oishi Manju – The Yummy Waffle

Oishi Manju – The Yummy Waffle

One of the pioneer in the waffle industry is the Oishi Manju. I used to see their stalls since I was high school. I can remember after hard times in school, my friends and I used to go to Robinsons mall in Novaliches and will cheap-in to have enough money to buy a box or two of these yummy treats. Then we will stay in the food court and will chit-chat while digging down the steaming hot waffle. Then, were ready for tomorrow.

Oishi Manju are Korean cakes. They are pancakes shaped into molds with chocolate or pastillas fillings inside. The best way to eat these are after coming out from the mold and steaming hot.

Way back then, the pieces of Oishi Manju is like the figure of a leaf, now it is rectangular shape. They use small pans with partnered molds and partnered holes where they put the pancake-like mixture, add fillings on the other side of the hole then will close the pan to create the a whole piece of Oishi Manju.


The enticing display in Ever Commonwealth stall

The Stall

Today, I used to take home these bite sized craze from the Ever Gotesco, Commonwealth. The stall was located in the ground floor in front of the Max’s Restaurant. The guy taking care of the stall was the only one in charge and he had been doing it many years now. The great  this is he never failed to impress me with his quickness in taking orders. In terms of cleanliness, I am also quite impressed.

The guy makes lots of cakes all the time. But, he never failed me to have teaming hot cakes everytime I make orders.

He is also friendly as well. When I asked if I can take pictures he smile and said “Sure po sir.” He always greets customers who wanted to buy the products.

The Price

For the “Snack Pack” with 4 pieces of Oishi Manju is worth P15.00. The “Paper Pack” with 8  pieces will cost you P28.00. The “Small Box” with 15 pieces of the cakes is P53.00 and the “Big Box” with 24 pieces is P84.00. For me the prices are just enough for the treats.

The Packaging

It’s always take-out orders. The “Snack Pack” and “Paper Pack” comes in a small, white paper bags, it’s parchment paper turned into paper bags. The “Small Box” and “Big Box,” comes in same box. The box while travelling will soften as it absorbs moisture.

I don’t know what’s up, but there is a sticker “M” added to the box, making the name “Moishi Manju.” Have they already changed the name? I don’t know.


Take-out order (big box) from Oishi Manju, see the letter “M” sticker?!

The Verdict

For me, the price P84.00 is ok. With it you can already have  24 pieces of delicious waffle with delicious fillings. Me, I love the Pastillas than the chocolate. But, because my nieces loved the chocolate more, I ask the guy in the stall to make the package with assorted cakes.

When you put the box on our table, within an hour you will never see pieces of Oishi Manju anymore. The persons in our house including the kids are crazy over these bite-size madness.

A highly recommended treat.
