Richmonde Hotel Signature Sweets

The Richmonde’s famous ensaymada is soft, buttery, cheesy and delicious all over. And with its generous size, it’s a filling snack perfect for the holidays, especially if paired with a cup of native tsokolate. Available at all the Richmonde Hotels, the Signature Ensaymada also comes in ube flavor. Additionally, get the limited-edition holiday variants of salted egg and quezo de bola at Richmonde Hotel Ortigas. The Richmonde Chocolate Cake, with its velvety smoothness and rich flavor, is another favorite also available at any Richmonde Hotel.
