Sweet treat Wednesday – Scarsdale Artisanal Delights…

Scarsdale Artisanal Delights

Scarsdale is a familiar town down the countryside part of the City that never sleeps (New York). It is explicitly a delight to see names of shops here in our country inspired by other places. It meant that the curator might have been exposed to a lot of amazing places and to bring it here signifies that Filipinos has a discriminating taste when it comes to food along with most of our “needs and wants” as well.

The first Scarsdale Artisanal Delights branch you will find along Shaw boulevard in Mandaluyong, Metro Manila. It is actually inside S&R’s building and fronting other newly opened food destinations such as Project Pie, Starbucks (which recently transferred, they are originally located at the ground floor of Lee gardens, and due to lack of space, the transfer took place just late last year), B&P Just like home, and soon to open Family Mart.

I learned from one of the friendly attendant that Scarsdale is a sister company of Go nuts Donuts. This move is with pride I’m sure to put up these place offering home-made doughnuts in limited yet irresistible I can’t make up my mind variants. Part of their menu is the latest doughnut craze of combining a doughnut with a croissant. Some call them doussant, some call them croughnut, whichever way you want to call it, it is equally delightful to the bite.

Made me fickle..

During their soft opening, my soul sis dragged me fervently telling me with excitement that there’s a new dainty shop that sells specialty doughnuts and it was so timely, we were very busy lately and it’s like capping the day with a good chat on top of some sweet treats.

My “in any angle” beautiful sistah!

Mine was S’mores.

And her’s is green tea glazed doughnut which photo I forgot to take. (–,)(she has always been very health conscious opposite myself that I eat anything regardless of the fats and calories and cholesterol maxed out in a day).

We were about to be sitted when one of the owners directed our bags to these small hooks under the table.

Hooks under the table..

When you are so engrossed chatting with your buddies and you forgot about your bag, those little hooks under will secure your valuables. I didn’t mean to discriminate concerns on safety, though those little things adds value to the service and whether we like it or not, it meant a lot.

So witty yet caring..

Their menu is somewhat special,


they do not mass-pro, each variant were made in little quantity, so they’re always guaranteed fresh,

They have croughnuts too..

they have sandwiches too making use of the dough for their doughnuts as sandwich buns itself

Is that a sack of flour?

and they have spreads too which bottles are adoringly packed with a country-vibe feel.

So artistic..

The place is idyllic with those chalked written menu boards that specially appeals to me. There’s a second floor though according to them they are still finishing it up. I overheard that one artist is doing another mural upstairs and I can’t wait to go up once its done. I love murals! That’s the reason why I asked my buddy once to search for Chef Del Rosario’s restaurant in Makati, just because of the mural. ehehe.

Sacks of flour..

Going back to the doughnut, I liked it being chewy and doughy. Aint a food blogger so I do not know how to describe it, though its incomparable with the doughnuts that most of us is familiar with, and the real deal here is they are very affordable.

A transparent mural. I termed it transparent because they directly draw on the wall’s surface..

And I thought they are real apples..

With the ambiance that they’ve created, the manner of how they packaged their products,

Cool boxes for take-outs/ take-aways/ to-go orders whatever..

the sense of Art incorporated in every corner,

The power of media…

the showcase of ingredients and a kitchen/ working area that’s transparent to the customers, they can wrestle with the other brands that sells equally noteworthy doughnuts in the country, this I guess is going to be one of the best doughnuts of our time. I am actually collating all of the doughnuts I’ve tried here in our country (just like what I did with my blueberry cheesecake adventure) and probably enumerate them here and claim a personal all-time favorite.

We are actually coming back, and I cant wait to try their version of croughnuts, I’d be getting the apple pie variant. Scarsdale Artisanal Delights is worth your more than one visits.

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli with prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
