Grilled Ensaymada


Red Ribbon's grilled ensaymada was a pleasant surprise. Their service is another story. It's the usual ensaymada in their menu topped with butter and confectionery sugar, straight from the griddle I suppose, or oven. It's really soft and chewy and the butter did wonders. I love butter and I always ask for an extra serving for my pancakes or anything else that has butter on it. The melted butter gives a creamy texture on the ensaymada. Good for some quick bite. It's served with coffee but since it's summer, I wanted to have a smoothie with it. Red Ribbon has no smoothie unfortunately so I settled for 7-11's Slurpee.


***More melted bliss at Lasang Pinoy, Sundays.

I brought home a huge box of Red Ribbon ensaymada from my last trip to california, and this is how my girls have been reheating them, grilled with melted butter and sugar that caramelizes in the pan. yummy!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE ensaymada! I'll usually eat the bottom and fillings first then the top last with all that butter and cheese. Yum! I haven't tried it grilled yet, which means it's time for me to make a field trip to Red Ribbon.

Red Ribbon? Uber yummy! Pero I am an ensaymada lover so kahit anong ensaymada yan, I would definitely inhale it... I used not to like the monggo filled ones but now I don't complain... kahit yung tag 5 PHP na ensaymada, sold na ako! hehehehe

I miss Red Ribbon too... (the food - not the service!) :(

Thanks for bringing back many fond and yummy foodie memories with this post!

Hi. I love Red Ribbon's ensaymada too. I have never tried the grilled one, though. This looks delicious, so I'll soon try one. :)
