MANILA, Philippines – If you love dinner rolls, garlic bread and creamy spinach dip, this homemade hybrid treat from this new in-house bakery might just be what you need!
Freshly baked garlic and herb rolls are the newest product from The Capitol Baker, located in Kapitolyo, Pasig City. The Capitol Baker is no stranger to selling blockbuster treats — owner Chef Bekah ran Bobba Donuts MNL, a viral IG bakery born out of a pandemic that sold milk tea donuts with tapioca pearls and various fruits and sweet toppings.
However, Bobba Donuts is no more; the business was sold and Chef Bekah’s family relocated their homes from Taguig City to the bustling food paradise of Kapitolyo, which actually sparked Chef Bekah’s idea to start from scratch – she admired the way the Most food businesses that started in this neighborhood have been able to grow and expand both indoors and outdoors.

Let’s go get that bread
Her idea to start selling garlic and herb rolls was born from her love for everything involved in this satisfying treat: butter, garlic, fresh herbs, cheese and of course, bread.
“That’s all I want to put in my bread!” Chief Bekah told Rappler.
“I wanted to recreate the simple bun and innovate it into something unique that everyone will love. So I thought of taking a dip in the middle,” she said.
Chef Bekah made her recipe “super soft and fluffy compared to store-bought rolls,” so she doesn’t use any preservatives or softeners in the dough. This helps make the bread taste more “real” and more “homemade.”
The rolls are soft, soft and chewy; you can really taste the garlic butter spread on the roll itself, but it’s not that strong or overpowering. They taste best when dipped in the creamy, cheesy spinach dip in the center – I love my bun covered in it – so I just wish there was more included! It’s a savory treat with a sweet twist, which makes it very addictive.
They are good as a side dish to a hearty meal, for breakfast or as a hearty merienda. Simply reheat them in the toaster oven if you want them lightly toasted, or microwave them for a few seconds to make them softer and butterier!
The garlic and herb rolls come in 8″ pans. The Classic Cheese variant costs P250, while the Creamy Spinach version costs P280.
The Capitol Baker has more items in store and plans in the future to create a commercial bakery where customers can also dine and enjoy coffee.
