The FunnelCake Factory

Lately, I’m getting education on different types of cakes that are available here in Manila. The lesson for today is all about funnel cakes. For me, it is the cousin of pancakes and waffle. It taste like Maruya (a local delicacy of fried banana in flour) and it has the same consistency. It is fried and crispy. Usually it can go with any sweet toppings like chocolate, cream and fruits. Some of the existing flavors include, caramel almond, cinnamon, nutty choco loco, peanut butter banana, mango graham and tuna cheese. Funnel cakes are associated with Pennyslvania Dutch region of the US and popular around ball parks, country fairs, and festivals.

The funnel cake factory used to have a stall in the Fort strip and they transfered to the third floor of Festival Mall. Finally, they setup a 45 sq meter dining resto along President’s avenue in BF. We were surprised that they were opened on a Fri and Saturday night until 12 mn when most of the shops would already close by that time. For late night desserts, they have a funnel cake fondue composed of three-piece fun-size funnel cake topped with banana and powdered sugar. They use toblerone for their chocolate and this would costs around P150 net. Here is a copy of the menu since they also serve sandwiches and coffee –> Funnel Cakes Factory Menu.

Mango Graham Funnel Cake (P90).

No doubt that this is something different. But it reminds me too much of our local Maruya version. You will feel guilty eating this since its fried, creamy, and lots of chocolate. I would not drive all the way to BF Sucat for this.

Anything sweet is always a hit with this baby. These days Aidan wants to use the spoon and fork on his own. He is turning two soon.

  1. I love funnel cakes! I was wondering what happened to their cart at the Fort a few months back! Anyways, the funnel cake that I loved was from Disneyland in LA. They served the funnel cake in a huge paper plate with jam and powdered sugar. Saraaap!! Too bad the resto is so far! Argh…

  2. I love funnel cakes too and couldn’t have them for years because no one sold them here. I was thrilled when Funnel Cake Factory opened at the Fort, and dismayed when they disappeared. I agree, BF is way too far just for funnel cake…but there’s another option! Go to any branch of The Old Spaghetti House (Makati, Greenhills, etc.) and order the dessert called “Fried Spaghetti.” It’s actually funnel cake. Only three flavors and not as crispy, but okay for quelling a craving. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Mango graham and caramel almonds are my favorite. I’ve been a regular of the place in BF since they opened- although i find it quite far- the ambience and food is quite an experience. They said they are opening a kiosk soon at glorietta foodchoices by mid-november. Can’t wait:)

  6. Hi Anton!
    I have been visiting your blog for some years now whenever I want to check on some food place – however I never imagined that I might comment over something which is somehow not related. I was searching for FunnelCake Factory when my search led me here. You see, I was the artist who made the design for the marketing materials Funnelcake used – flyers, banners, tarps, and in this photo (above) the wall panels and the menu. I was hoping if you can allow me to use the said photo for my website portfolio I am doing. I had some other images, but actual photos is way better. I will definitely credit you and I will put link to your website. Let me know your feedback so I’ll know what to do. Thank you very much! More power to your site! ๐Ÿ™‚
