After 2+ years, Happy Cream Puff finally opened their Makati Branch in the Zone. My wife Rache is always craving for the eclairs ever since we discovered it last December 2006. (Also read: our comparison between Beard Papa and Happy Cream Puff).
Congratulations to Mr. Haruo and Maricel Yamigishi for finally opening their dream Makati Outlet after their first branch in SM Southmall.
What makes their treats yummy is that they are baked fresh in their Makati Branch. The custard cream and whipped cream are also made on site.
Strawberry Nama Choux (P105).
The basic cream puff (called Choux) is P30 with custard cream.
If you add fresh whipped cream (called W-Choux), it costs P65.
If you like your cream puff with whipped cream (called Nama Choux), it costs P75.
If you want your whipped cream to be Ube Halaya-flavored, it costs P85.
If you add Mango topping to your Nama Choux, it costs P95.
If you add Strawberry toppings to your Nama Choux, it costs P105.
Most Japanese love the fresh whipped cream, but for Filipinos, we like custard cream more and think that whipped cream is too fatty. Do you like fresh whipped cream on your cream puff?
Happy Cream Puff Eclair (P35).
Our personal favorite is the eclair (cream puff with custard cream inside and dark chocolate outside). We like it just plain -- no whipped cream please! The separate flavors of chocolate, cream and the puff itself do not overpower each other. When you eat it, it feels like a light dessert without the suya element. So, you can eat a whole box by yourself without feeling guilty or bloated afterwards.
W-Eclair Box of 5 (P325). Fresh Whipped Cream & Custard Cream.
Happy Cream Puff Eclair - P35.
W-Eclair (with custard cream and whipped cream) - P65.
Nama Eclair (with fresh whipped cream only) - P75.
Nama Eclair with Banana - P95.
The boxes are incorporated already in the costing. So if you order a box of 5, just multiply the unit cost by 5. For example, a box of 5 of W-Eclair (eclair with whipped cream) would cost P65 x 5.
Petit Puff Box (P250). Filled Custard Cream with different toppings.
If the Japanese love the Cream Puff with Fresh Whipped Cream, Filipinos, on the other hand, love the petit cream puff, which comes in a box of 14. The petit puffs look like donut holes with a variety of toppings.
