When you say Bacolod City, one would immediately think – Masskara .And  if we say Bacolod Food its always about  the flavorful and unique-tasting chicken inasal, piaya,  muscovado  and few other food that is strongly associated with the place.

But apart from piaya, Bacolod has more to offer  to every food lover. One of which is the Napoleones which is now getting very popular  especially  for those who are traveling in Bacolod.

Napoleones is very much similar to the mille-feuille  pastry of French origin. Just like the Napoleones, a mille-feuille is made up of three layers of puff pastry   alternating with two layers of pastry cream  , but sometimes whipped cream or jam are substituted. The top pastry layer is dusted with confectioner’s sugar, and sometimes cocoa, or pulverized seeds (e.g. roasted almonds). Alternatively, the top is glazed with icing or fondant in alternating white (icing) and brown (chocolate) strips and combed.

Napoleones  in Bacolod, on the other hand, doesn’t have any variations. This great dessert is a composition of  layer upon layer of flaky puff pastry and interspersed with a thick and sinfully rich custard filling. This is then complimented by a thin coating of white icing which acts as a counterpoint to the creamy mixture sandwiched between the pastry sheets.

Several restaurants and bakeshops offer this delectable mouthwatering confectionery. My favorite is the one made by Quan. Quan’s  Napoleones is available in a box that is perfect as a pasalubong.

Never miss  getting a box or two of this yummy treat should you visit the sweet city, Bacolod!

  8. I’ve heard of Napoleones but I’ve not tasted it yet. Or maybe I have, but didn’t know what it’s called considering it doesn’t look like any of our common local desserts. I’m a bit of a late-bloomer for local desserts. I will take note of this when we visit Bacolod with the kids.
