Menu, prices: Ben's Cookies opens in Manila
MANILA, Philippines – There’s nothing quite like biting into a freshly-baked chocolate chip cookie, is there?
Cookie monsters would know – the best cookies are God's gift from foodie paradise, especially if they're baked with chunks (not just chips!) of chocolate and nuts, made not too sweet and just right, while boasting the A+ cookie combo of a crisp outside and warm, soft, chewy and almost gooey dough on the inside.
This is exactly what London’s finest, Ben’s Cookies, is in Manila for – to bless the sweet tooths of our country with the possible new cookie of their dreams.
Flying from England, Ben's “cookies without compromise” have now officially landed at their first ever store in Podium Mall, Ortigas City.
Ben’s Cookies was created in 1983 by chocolate cookbook author Helge Rubenstein who named the cookies after her son, Ben. After starting off as just a small stall in the Oxford Covered Market – the rest was history.
Within its 36 years of baking business, the well-loved brand grew from its humble origins to now global domination, opening branches in New York, Japan, Dubai, Bangkok, Korea, Singapore, and just recently, the Philippines.
Hailed as one of the best cookies in New York by The Insider and after bagging a spot on Yelp's Top 10 Best Cookies list – the hype is very real, and Ben wants you try it out yourself.
