I recieved this pastry from a collegue of mine. It came all the way from Manila, Phillipines to Bangkok, Thailand. Apparently this type of pastery is actually from Majorca, Spain but is coommon in most former Spainsh territories like Latin America and the Phillipines.
In Phillipines, it is a brioche made with butter and topped with grated cheese and sugar. They are very popular around the holiday season.
