Look at any local specialty market’s dessert section and you’ll likely find a shockingly purple ube cheesecake, the trademark of Chera Amlag’s and Geo Quibuyen’s Hood Famous Bakery.

If you want to sip a coffee and nibble a slice of your own, swing by their Chinatown-International District café and bar, which opened in 2019. Feeling something lighter? The café serves up a bevy of delicious Filipinx-inspired bites, including sweet and savory mochi waffles and bitter melon quiche.
