Hello, Sans Rival.
I was mindlessly browsing my feed one night when I suddenly saw a photo of a familiar facade. It was a photo of Sans Rival in Glorietta. I had to read the captions a few times to make sure I was not mistaken. Sans Rival is finally in Manila!
I hardly visit Makati as I avoid its unbearable traffic. But Sans Rival is a beautiful reason to frequent this business district. And as I try to fix my schedule to drop by the mall that never fails to keep me confused and lost, I accidentally discovered Sans Rival’s newer branch, at Shangri-La Plaza.
I was on my way back to R’s office when I decided to take a quick walk around 5th floor just to see if there are new restaurants. And I saw this blue hue that made me smile like a lunatic. Adorned with welcome flowers, Sans Rival’s Shangri-La branch just opened that same day I passed by. Coincidence? I think not. It’s fate!
Since I’ll be heading to Quezon City, I opted to just get one pack of Original (PHP230/10 pieces) as I was worried that the silvanas might melt. Wrong move. I should have gotten 3 boxes as we could easily finish a box in one sitting.
One thing I noticed is that the packaging changed from carton and aluminum to plastic with dividers. It’s now more durable and the silvanas do not melt as fast. I also heard that these goodies are still shipped from Dumaguete.
I’ll definitely be back soon to grab more boxes and to try its cakes.
