And the chefs at Holiday Inn & Suites Makati pulled all the stops for an inspired and uniquely Filipino dessert using the popular and ubiquitous purple yam as its colorful and flavorful base. After all, the color purple means comforting flavors with a festive local vibe.

Topped with fresh mangoes and strawberries, the elegant Ube Tres Leches Cake (P 795 net) is a decadent expression of local pride with soft and moist purple yam-flavored sponge cake soaked in three kinds of milk slathered with a rich layer of ube halaya and smooth ube cream. Just one look and you know this is special.

The deep nutty notes of purple yam linger on the palate followed by a smooth burst of sweetness from the ube cream and ube halaya for indulgent layers of flavors. The blend of three kinds of milk adds a luxurious finish to the dessert creation with its unrestrained richness. There's just no better way to celebrate Independence Day when none of the decadent notes are held back. 

The vibrantly sweet and mildly tart fresh notes from the strawberries and mangoes bring contrasting flavors and textures with each bite, complementing the deep notes of purple yam for that balanced finish. All the different components come together in a seamless blend for a silky smooth dessert creation. 

But the chefs at Holiday Inn & Suites Makati have more playfully inventive surprises up their sleeves with the Krookie (P 200 net for 3), an ornate mash-up between a croissant and a cookie. Just like a croissant, the Krookie has delicately crisp and flaky layers rounded out by the more familiar dense cookie texture for yet another new dessert experience. 

Available in Ube, Chocolate, Cookies and Cream and Caramel, these Krookies by Holiday Inn & Suites Makati are truly one-of-a-kind.
