What's your favorite
Baskin Robbins flavor?

BASKIN-ROBBINS is America’s Favorite Neighborhood Ice Cream Shop, founded by brothers-in-law Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins in 1945. The brand was last seen in Manila more than a decade ago but has now made a comeback. The timing couldn't be more right, because Manileños have been craving for better ice creams. :)

We had to wait for close to 2 hours on Baskin Robbins' opening weekend, but it was well worth it. Part of the fun is in choosing from 31 delicious flavors and customizing how you want to enjoy your ice cream.

BIZU

About Bizu

We kiss one another to show gratitude, happiness, excitement, love, and affection. A kiss inspires. And this inspiration begets energy. This energy, in turn, begets creativity. BIZU was born out of this inspiration.

From this inspiration came the unique selection of cakes and pastries that were truly made to inspire. It all began with a dream to have an authentic Parisian Patisserie where the finest French pastries and European breads can be savored right in the Philippines. With much training and patience, our Filipino chefs have learned the magical art of the French Patisserie. Indeed, ensuring the most flavorful and artful products are brought to your homes is a labor of love.

From a kiosk/café at the third floor of Glorietta 4 that started operations in 2001, BIZU now has three more outlets in Greenbelt 2, Alabang Towncenter, and at The Promenade inside Greenhills Shopping Center. 

The menu includes all day breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner items. 

Customers are not to leave without the chewy pastel-colored Macarons de Paris that Bizu Patisserie is known for.
