Must-try offerings of Lordei’s Whip & Bake Corner

Try the offerings of Lordei’s Whip & Bake Corner not just for a cause but also because they’re really yummy.

Eight years ago, Lordei Camille Anjuli, then a fourth-year UP Diliman B.S Political Science student and active student leader, was robbed, stabbed seven times in the left side of her head with an ice pick and beaten in the face with a metal object.

The most fatal stab wound pierced through from the left to the right side of her brain (just like “na-barbecue”); likewise, a skull bone fragment of one centimeter in size got embedded in her brain. Moreover, the beating before the deadly stabbing fractured both of Lordei’s sinuses and nose bridge.

Lordei survived as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) victim. But the double brain injuries impaired Lordei’s memory, speech, cognitive and motor skills.

To engage in a productive activity as part of her therapy based on the advice of her doctor, Lordei started baking.

This gave birth to Lordei’s Whip & Bake Corner.

“The business is also a way to help her augment the cost of her continued medication and therapies,” said Connie Hina, Lordei’s mom. “As a single mother, I am the sole breadwinner for my daughter.”

MUST-TRY GOODIES

What makes Lordei’s Whip & Bake Corner’s offerings different from others in the market is “that we always take pride in our use of high quality ingredients and a blend of different spices and herbs. Meaning, our products are not so sweet as compared to those available commercially.”

For example, for carrot cake, one can taste more of the carrot than the flour. Same with banana and apple cinnamon loaves.

“It is also baked with love and passion as we want our supporters and patrons not just to feel satisfied and get back their money’s worth, but it can create unique taste memories for them and those others who have tasted; for them to remember the taste of Lordei’s Whip & Bake Corner,” Connie said.

These approaches have been working.

“So far, we received very positive and highly favorable reviews. Common comments are ‘hindi tinipid ang ingredients at mas masarap kaysa other commercially available ones’. There have been comments also that our products are like those being served in five star hotels,” Connie smiled.

The goods are sought after, in fact, that “we thought we will only be delivering here in Metro Manila, but our baked goods have reached as far as Norther Samar, Laguna and Rizal. We also have repeat customers and supporters who are from abroad, e.g. Malta, Iraq, Laos, Sweden, Australia, etc. who ordered online to be delivered to their families here in Metro Maniola as a surprise and gesture that they care. We also get orders from other provinces like Leyte and North Cotabato to be delivered for friends and relatives here in Metro Manila.”

Discovering a ‘community pizza company’ with Hunter’s Pizza

Aside from “We make it fresh,” the tagline of this pizza company is accompanied with “Ang pinakasulit na pizza.” Checking the prices – and comparing these to the likes of pizza giants Shakey’s and Pizza Hut – both claims have merit. But is Hunter’s Pizza worth checking out?

Aside from “We make it fresh,” the tagline of this pizza company is accompanied with “Ang pinakasulit na pizza.” Checking the prices – and comparing these to the likes of pizza giants Shakey’s and Pizza Hut – both claims have merit. But curiosity on the veracity of these claims were actually what drove us to check out Hunter’s Pizza.

To contextualize, this a franchise company, with over five branches already. For the taste test, the branch called was the one in Solchuaga St. corner Pasong Tirad, Barangay Tejeros, Makati City.

The pizza company doesn’t advertise in mainstream media; instead, it is active in online GCs (group chats) of various communities. There, the viewers are given photo info of the available goods for the day. These often include pizzas with: Triple Cheese (P129); Chicken & Mushroom (P109); Cream Cheese (P129); Cheese (P100); White (P105); Ham & Cheese (P105); Pepperoni (P109); Bacon (P109); New York (P129); and Sausage (P109).

We tried Triple White (another version of 3-cheese pizza, sans the company’s pizza sauce, selling for P129); Hawaiian (P109); and Supreme (P129).

To start, PM’ing the company was easy. At least the branch tapped emailed immediately, providing the needed additional information – e.g. Are the pizzas freshly baked? Yes, we were told. The dough used is freshly-made? Yes, we were told, too. Do they have delivery fee? For nearby places, no; but for somewhat distant places, add P20.

As soon as ordering was made, the goods were immediately prepped. At least that’s what we were told.

And this may be true since the pizzas arrived less than 40 after ordering. A driver who claimed to be related to the owner delivered the pizza; he was courteous… typical delivery.

Now, to the taste test…

Taste-wise, the pizza wasn’t bad at all.

Triple White was, indeed, cheesy. For the photoshoot, when pulling out slices, the cheese melted, leaving that… mouth-watering elongated cheesy trail.

Hawaiian was, generally, so-so; you can immediately tell when you’d notice there were just a few slices of pineapple chunks.

The Supreme was the tastiest; it had enough meat and veggie toppings to make it, truly, supreme-y (similar to those offered by pizza giants).

Here’s the one BIG issue I have, though: the pizza dough used in all the company’s offerings didn’t taste pizza-like. They’re more like… bread-like. So that if you’re extremely picky, these pizzas may actually taste more like bread with toppings. I know that this is a definite no-no for many; so this should be stressed. If it’s any consolation, this isn’t one of those frozen-then-heated-when-ordered type of pizza; meaning, it can justify its taglines…

The pizzas do not sell for much, so supporting this community pizza company doesn’t break the bank. Just temper your expectations and you’d get something that should, at least, satisfy your pizza craving…

By Chef Kin was only opened as an online bakery in May 2020, with a startup capital of approximately P100,000. But after less than a year of operating, Rankin Cailles said that they already reached ROI; and in fact, they’re already investing to buy more equipment to grow the biz.

To better understand the success, trying out the offerings of By Chef Kin is a must.

Now what makes its offerings different from those already offered in the market?

“It is personally special for me in terms that I am able to express my ideas and bring them to my client’s table. I often have these ideas in my head that I would like to try and see if it works but I can’t do because I’m busy with work,” Cailles said.

But these ideas are now… eatable.

What are the bestsellers?

Try the Mascarpone Tiramisù (P350 for petite, P700 for regular and P1,300 for party size); Limoncello Tiramisù (P500 for petite, P1,000 for regular and P2,000 for party size); and the Butternut Crinkles (P300 for 10 pieces).

These explain the success of By Chef Kin; and should be tried indeed.

Answer your cookie craving with Mad Pastry PH

Mad Pastry PH may have been opened only this December as a small and local food brand located at Santa Rosa City, Laguna; but Lloyd Jeremy Matias is optimistic it is going to go places. And why not, when – at this point – the biggest challenge for him is dealing with the amount of orders coming in. This is, definitely, a “problem” that all businesses dream of.

Mad Pastry PH may have been opened only this December as a small and local food brand located at Santa Rosa City, Laguna; but Lloyd Jeremy Matias is optimistic it is going to go places.

And why not, when – at this point – the biggest challenge for him is dealing with the amount of orders coming in. This is, definitely, a “problem” that all businesses dream of.

“It took us two months in the making before going into actual production and selling, which is longer than expected for just a simple cookie. This is because our cookie is not that simple and common,” Lloyd said. 

Mad Pastry PH utilized his engineering experience coupled with some scientific knowledge and lots of trials and experimentation “for us to reach the right mix and formulation,” he said, with pride. 

The brand’s packaging is also very well thought, and Lloyd is just-as-proud to say that “we really invested money on it.”

In the end, though, the proof is in the cookie… so to speak.

And Lloyd agreed. “One must try our cookie, for them to really see what we are offering.”

Must-try include the classic chocolate chip cookie (PhP160 per half dozen box) and the fusion cookie, which is a combination of classic chocolate chip and black choco (PhP170 per box of half a dozen).

So don’t wait; just order and chow.
