APPLE Strudel, that lovely tart filled with apple laced with cinnamon and topped with crumble, is a German confection. Its real name is Apfelstrudel, which is very German. Not many people know it, but Sacher Torte (or Sacher Cake) is also a German creation that chocolate lovers enjoy all over the world today. It is, after all, a 185-year-old specialty cake that was created for royalty. The cake is coated with luscious chocolatey fondant that brings the right amount of sweetness and all the goodness of good quality chocolate—perfect with a cup of coffee or tea.
Both Apple Strudel and Sacher Cake, along with a selection of other German desserts, can be enjoyed at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s Café Pronto this entire month of September. Oozing with timeless goodness, these centuries-old desserts are also available to-go at the casual yet chic coffee shop through Grab N’ Go. Best to pre-order by calling (02) 7207777 to make sure the cake is available upon pick-up.
Café Pronto is located at the Ground Floor of Marco Polo Ortigas Manila and is open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The hotel can be found at Meralco Ave. corner Sapphire St., Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
