Happy Cream Puff — finally in Makati!


After 2+ years, Happy Cream Puff finally opened their Makati Branch in the Zone. My wife Rache is always craving for the eclairs ever since we discovered it last December 2006. (Also read: our comparison between Beard Papa and Happy Cream Puff).

Congratulations to Mr. Haruo and Maricel Yamigishi for finally opening their dream Makati Outlet after their first branch in SM Southmall.



What makes their treats yummy is that they are baked fresh in their Makati Branch. The custard cream and whipped cream are also made on site.


Strawberry Nama Choux (P105).

The basic cream puff (called Choux) is P30 with custard cream.
If you add fresh whipped cream (called W-Choux), it costs P65.
If you like your cream puff with whipped cream (called Nama Choux), it costs P75.
If you want your whipped cream to be Ube Halaya-flavored, it costs P85.
If you add Mango topping to your Nama Choux, it costs P95.
If you add Strawberry toppings to your Nama Choux, it costs P105.

Most Japanese love the fresh whipped cream, but for Filipinos, we like custard cream more and think that whipped cream is too fatty. Do you like fresh whipped cream on your cream puff?

Happy Cream Puff Eclair (P35).

Our personal favorite is the eclair (cream puff with custard cream inside and dark chocolate outside). We like it just plain — no whipped cream please! The separate flavors of chocolate, cream and the puff itself do not overpower each other. When you eat it, it feels like a light dessert without the suya element. So, you can eat a whole box by yourself without feeling guilty or bloated afterwards.

W-Eclair Box of 5 (P325). Fresh Whipped Cream & Custard Cream.

Happy Cream Puff Eclair – P35.
W-Eclair (with custard cream and whipped cream) – P65.
Nama Eclair (with fresh whipped cream only) – P75.
Nama Eclair with Banana – P95.

The boxes are incorporated already in the costing. So if you order a box of 5, just multiply the unit cost by 5. For example, a box of 5 of W-Eclair (eclair with whipped cream) would cost P65 x 5.


Petit Puff Box (P250). Filled Custard Cream with different toppings.

If the Japanese love the Cream Puff with Fresh Whipped Cream, Filipinos, on the other hand, love the petit cream puff, which comes in a box of 14. The petit puffs look like donut holes with a variety of toppings.

(Top Left – Clockwise) Whole Almond, Sprinkles (Strawberry), Plain with Almond Sugar, Almond Caramel, Caramel, Dark Sweet Chocolate, Strawberry, and White Chocolate

(Top Left – Clockwise) Walnut Caramel, Icing, Crushed Almond, Dark & White Chocolate, Plain, Cookie Petit Puff, Caramel

  1. As far as I know, custard cream actually has more fat and is richer than whipped cream, because custard contains eggs — which is why I prefer it! 😀 I don’t like too much whipped cream because to me, it tastes like air (since it’s whipped). Also, I think Pinoys prefer the custard cream version because that’s what we grew up with.
    Thanks for this, Anton. Malugay isn’t far from me, yay!

  2. Thanks to you I’ve been enjoying Happy Cream Puff for a year already. Their prices in Makati are more expensive by 5 pesos, I think. But that can be justified.

  11. I’ve been a fan since they opened in Metropolis. I’m so happy they opened in Makati now since we couldn’t make the trip to their Las Pinas branch. Thanks for posting this.

  12. I went there to check the taste of cream puff.
    Sorry to tell you the truth, but they are worse than ones at the convenience stores in Japan.
    http://yaplog.jp/cat-sweet/archive/255 (made in factories)
    cf. http://www.bidders.co.jp/pitem/67756422 (hand made sweets by pro.)
    Mr. Yamagishi’s cream puff is fake ones just like TOKYO-TOKYO, KITARO or Teriyaki Boy served with non-Japanese rice.
    Everyone can tell he has really bad taste because the coffee he serves together is very strong taste and powerful body, which totally kills very weak taste cream puff!
    Please don’t judge that those are real Japanese sweets.
    Thank you.

  13. Wow! Happy Cream Puff is no longer Las Pinas’ best kept secret. It’s now also Makati’s! I love HCP especially the eclairs (it’s their best product IMO). 😀
