House of Silvanas is not very far from the in-laws and we finally stopped in. Tip: Turn after seeing City Heights sign on Gellert Blvd, then go down the hill, bakery on the left. Parking lot is kinda small.
It's a tiny bakery that has a bunch of Filipino desserts, the specialties are the Silvanas. They have 7 flavors: original, buko pandan, mango, mocha, strawberry, chocolate, & ube. Light & airy like macarons - I like them.
I asked for 2 of ea which is 14 for $12, or it's $1 ea if you don't want that many. They are kept frozen & recommended to eat frozen. If you eat room temp. they will get soggy the lady told me. If you have nut allergies you can't have them - cookies made w/ cashews.
From website: "A Silvana is a frozen cookie made with a layer of buttercream sandwiched between two cashew-meringue wafers, coated with cookie crumbs. Many describe it as a cookie version of a Sans Rival."
From website: "House of Silvanas Bakeshop specializes in Silvanas, Ensaimada, Sans Rival and other sweet delicacies."
They take credit card.
