Cookie Martinez Container Launch @ Market 707

Cookie Martinez Container Launch at Market 707

My friend Natalia has a pop-up shop in Market 707 for the month of June, selling freshly-baked cookies, brownies, and ice cream sandwiches. Today didn’t feel like June temperature-wise, but it didn’t stop us from pretending it was ice-cream weather and scoffing the goods!

The appetite was in full force today, and I simply could not pass the Filipino eatery at Market 707 without putting in a couple of orders (not balut, though! but they carry it) before indulging in ice cream:

sisig fries — pork belly, sauces, green onions, crispy fries

Get a look at the size of the sisig fries! I shared with as many people who were willing to try it. On to the desserts by Cookie Martinez:
