The undeniable purple hue of ube is a calling card for many Filipino desserts. It’s an electric kind of purple, turbo jettisoned to your pupils with the intent to capture your attention at first glance. But once your eyes have been hooked, next comes your appetite.
At B Sweet Dessert Bar in Los Angeles, California, Chef Barb Bastiste is flipping Filipino dessert favorites into modern takes, whether it be ube and beyond. So once you’ve conquered the purple flourish, leave room for other goodies like the Dulce De Leche Tres Leches Cake and the classic Filipino refresher, Hal0-Halo.
Even though I’m highlighting three items here, trust that there’s plenty more treats to indulge in at B Sweet Dessert Bar, where they’ll always roll out the red carpet for your sweet tooth.
