Traffic is getting worse by the second, and that’s why I don’t venture out to Quezon City as much as I used to. What used to be an hour travel from Parañaque can now turn into a half day wasted in EDSA traffic. However, for pichi-pichi, I was willing to make an exception, and boy was it worth it!
After circling Visayas Avenue twice, I finally found Dedet’s Peachy-Peachy, Cakes & Pastries. It was no wonder I couldn’t find it the first two times, it was not a restaurant or a shop like I expected. It was just a house. A house with tarpaulins hung on the gate and angry-dog barks coming from the inside. I was unsure if I was in the right place,and would have left had it not been for the traffic I endured getting there.
I knocked on the door and ordered. Ten minutes later, the girl comes out handing me a styrofoam full of pichi-pichi to-go. There was no eating in this place so I went back to the car and decided that I’d eat the pichi-pichi inside with my hands.
I open the Styrofoam container and faced pichi-pichi that was generously topped with cheese. I squealed with excitement and grabbed a big chunk. I popped them into my mouth, and seconds later, they literally melt in my mouth. I’ve tried other pichi-pichis but this one is the best one I’ve had in a long time. It was so good that I almost didn’t notice the 3-hour drive back to Parañaque.
Where’s the best pichi-pichi you’ve tried? Tell us with a comment below!
