What Is a Cannoli and Where Can You Order One in the Philippines?

by Meryl Medel

When it comes to Italian cuisine, the first thing that probably comes to your mind are main dishes like pizza and pasta. But when we ask you to name an Italian dessert, your answer might just circle around gelato, panna cotta, or tiramisu — which Filipinos are most familiar with. If you want to add another sweet treat to that list, you should try the cannoli.

A cannoli is an Italian pastry made of tube-shaped pastry dough fried to a crisp and filled with ricotta and other toppings. It’s not too sweet — just the right level of sweetness! — so it’s perfect for any palate. Luckily for all of us, there are a lot of restaurants and stores that are now selling this Italian dessert right here in the Philippines, so you don’t need to fly all the way to Italy. Remember, you cannoli live once. So indulge and order a box of cannoli from these food shops around the metro.
