Once the crowds have dissipated, SM Aura has become my favorite little mall. It’s not too big, so that I don’t have to transfer buildings just to get to a specific store I’m looking for; it’s accessible to me, not longer than a 5-10 minute drive from where I work; and it has mostly everything I need (and don’t need), save for a J.Co Donuts & Coffee branch.
Since I’m there at least once a week, by now I’ve tried most of the foodie places they have (except Slappy Cakes and Love Shack, just you wait). OVN Bread Co. is one place I find myself drawn to for its clean and no fuss interior. It’s a tiny little bakery that sells breads, pastries, pies, and other baked stuff.
What actually drew me to the place were their familiar goods on display. I say familiar because the Almond 3-bite Bun reminds me of the famous J.Co Al Capone donut. OVN’s version is a little bun drizzled with white chocolate and sprinkled with almond flakes. Baked instead of fried, it’s probably healthier, and it is less sweet.
Another familiar baked treat is OVN’s Chocolate Yema Muffin, reminiscent of Slice’s famous Yema Cupcake. Because it’s a muffin and not cupcake, OVN’s version has a denser and less moist crumb, but the yema frosting is just as yummy (and sinful).
Food is the perfect token to give out if you’re going to a housewarming party, or if you’re visiting a sick friend, or if you want to bring something home to your little sister, or maybe if you need to make it up to your significant other for a petty misunderstanding. OVN Bread Co. has elegant gift boxes in several sizes for you to customize your little gift, depending on the gravity of your sin (Keeding!).
Besides the two familiar treats I highlighted, they also have a nice selection of bite sized tarts, and a handful of plain and flavored breads to choose from, all at pocket friendly prices. If you’re in the area, you gotta check out the breads and pastries at OVN Bread Co.

- If I were to pick one thing I miss most about trying to eat low carb, it’s pasta. This is why on really bad days, I gorge on instant noodles. 😨 For shame. Anyway, when I found out about @7grainspantry’s Protein Pasta which are made from two ingredients- edamame and water, I was sold. High on protein and fiber, this is the ultimate carb substitute. #happyhealthyawesome #BTMcooks #BTMrecommends #edamamepasta #proteinpasta - August 25, 2017
- Those tiny grain like things sprinkled on top of this chia pudding is @manitobaharvest’s Hemp Hearts. Rich in two essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, hemp seeds are really good for health. Kinda reminds me of pine nuts in both taste and texture. #hempseeds #dailychia #chiapudding - August 24, 2017
