At one point, getting through Kimberly Camara’s sari-sari pastry box waitlist became a sort of New York rite of passage, with its size quickly ballooning from dozens of people, to as many as 10,000. Born during the pandemic and a continuation of Camara’s grandmother’s legacy, the pastries in the ever-changing boxes reimagine classic Filipino desserts and flavor combinations within brioches that swing more ensaymada than doughnut.

Luckily, pre-ordering no longer requires the browser-refreshing skills you developed while helping your family book vaccine appointments. Orders open on Saturdays at 1pm, for pick-up the next Saturday. You'll find things like Leche Flan Ni Lola, with rich flan that feels closer to tocino del cielo sitting atop even more flan by way of cream before being enclosed by brioche. Traditional ingredients like kalamansi, a citrus native to the Philippines that tastes like an orange and a lemon’s firstborn, saba banana, and ube also make creative appearances.
