This Macaron Shop in QC Will Make You Want to Eat Your Pokemon

While others are busy hunting Eevees, battling Tentacruels, spending time in gyms, walking around trying to hatch an egg in the hopes of getting themselves a Pikachu, or squealing like a maniac everytime they detect a Dratini nearby, here I am still looking for—guess what—food. While browsing my Instagram, I stumbled upon this super cute photo by @mrsgrahamscafe of her latest creation: Pokemon macarons!

Mrs. Graham's is the sugary half of the sweet-and-savory duo Mr. and Mrs. Graham's, situated side-by-side in Scout Rallos in Quezon City. But if you think she's just riding on the game's popularity, worry not because Anna Graham makes some of the best macarons in Manila—none of those overly sweet, overly crunchy, or overly chewy variants sold elsewhere. She’s also pretty playful when it comes to flavors—Cheetos macaron, anyone?

These Pokemon-inspired macarons are available in 2 flavors and designs: Pikachu (Salted Caramel) and Pokeball (Matcha). Aren’t they adorable??? I’m sure they are incredibly luscious too! MRS. GRAHAM’S PLEASE PLEASE A BULBASAUR MACARON?? That water—oops, grass—Pokemon is my absolute favorite!

And while you’re in the area, why not drop by next door and get yourselves a refreshing Apple Pie Soda—Mr. Graham’s signature drink—and a hunky Cebuano (cubano sandwich with lechon, ham, cheddar, pickled mangoes, and lechon drippings) to fill up your tummy and replenish your energy for more Poke-hunting? But let me warn you: the sandwiches here are so good, you might find yourselves laying down your phones for an hour or two.

The Elvis: bacon, banana, marshmallow, and peanut butter

the Club, and the most insanely addictive camote chips

So if you’re a Pokemon fan AND a lover of well-made desserts and man-wiches, make Scout Rallos in Quezon City your next Poke-stop and sample Mr. and Mrs. Graham’s. RUN. NOW.
