Mila’s Restaurant of Hinigaran is finally here! Mila’s is a popular bakery and coffee shop that is known for its delicious Filipino breads and its trademark delicacy: Potato Cake
Mila’s opened a branch at Robinson’s Triangle Bacolod along B.S. Aquino road. (at the Shopping area of Bacolod) It has a very distinct look that you can’t miss.
Mila’s is very popular In the afternoons there are crowds of people lining up to sample the different Filipino delicacies and pastries
Here’s a tip: Come early and not in the late afternoons. 3pm is when it starts getting busy. If you arrive late there’s a chance that the breads will be sold out and you will have to wait until they prepare another batch.
Here’s some of the available goodies that Mila’s Restaurant has to offer:
Pizza Pan: At only 7 pesos, a slice of this bread is a good deal. It already has bell peppers, cheese and some ham.
Chicken ala King: Creamy chicken topped with cheese inside toasted bread. A Filipino favorite most commonly seen at parties.
Chicken puto pao: It’s puto! Mila’s restaurant has fluffy rice cakes topped with cheese and stuffed with a little bit of chicken! It’s also a good deal for 7 pesos.
Chicken Pie: 17 pesos will get you an egg glazed pastry filled with chicken.
Royal Bibingka: This is a bigger, more cake like version of regular bibingka. Topped with plenty of grated cheese and dusted with sugar. Tastes ok.
Bitchokoy: This is one of the most popular breads that Mila’s serves. 11 pesos will get you a nice long thick bread that is stuffed with cheese. Very filling.
Buko pie: These are more like tiny coconut tarts. Ok for the price.
Swiss Chocolate Cake: Not as good as their Potato cake to be honest. Just ok.
Black Sambo: Lovely jelly-like dessert of cream and chocolate. Price is cheap too!
And finally the famous potato cake that has potato flour/potato starch in it 39 php per slice!
The top sellers of Mila’s are bitchokoy and Potato cake. These sell out really fast. There’s a smaller version of the potato cake which are the potato squares. We highly recommend these for those who just want a taste because this is not as thick as the regular potato cake slice but just as sweet and delicious tasting.
My absolute favorite is the Bitchokoy. The bread is perfectly fried at the proper temperature so it forms a protective crust which prevents the oil from seeping inside. It is very good especially when it is hot because the inside is stuffed with cheese that melts a little bit! Very delicious. Although it is coated with sugar you can scrape it off if you’re watching your sugar intake.
The potato cake is a layered cake with a buttercream icing and a crunchy caramel topping. Very tasty and VERY sweet. Quite addicting but too much of this may not be good for your health.
The caramel sugar topping is really thick so I recommend scraping at least 75% of it off if you’re watching your sugar intake or stick to the potato squares. The cake itself is moist and soft and it is pretty good.
Remember – sweets in moderation! Mila’s Restaurant also serves meals and other filipino dishes but really, all that everyone wants to eat are their delicious pastries. 🙂
Mila’s Restaurant is located at Robinson’s Triangle Shopping area along B.S. Aquino drive.
