The World Loves Flan
Where does the best Leche Flan in Toronto and GTA come from? This delicious dessert came into existence with the Romans. It was spread throughout the lands of ancient times by Roman soldiers who brought with them, the traditions from their homeland. Spain was particularly enthralled with the creamy treat. They added their own spin with the addition of caramel, and that is how the dessert we now know as Leche Flan was created. Although there is debate on the beginnings of flan, it is enjoyed in the regions of France, Italy, Spain, and the rest of Europe.
Flantastic Leche Flan is the tastiest Filipino dessert in Toronto. This amazing city is home to many Asian, Caribbean and Latin countries that have their own names and ways to enjoy this delicious dessert. Called caramel custard in India and Malaysia, this rich sweet was brought to these countries by Portuguese sailors. It is savoured during the holidays and the end of Ramadan. In Japan, it is called Purin (translates to pudding). It was introduced from the west during the Meiji era and is a favourite treat of the Japanese and is enjoyed all year round. The French version (known as creme caramel) was introduced to Vietnam when it was a French colony, the Vietnamese call this delicious dessert Banh Caramel. Puerto Rico has various flavours of flan, using regional fruits and extracts from native plants. Chileans eat flan with quince jelly – a local fruit. Many Caribbean countries add coconut to theirs. The folks of Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic flavour their flan with coffee. The Flan Napolitano, from Mexico, is made extra creamy with the addition of cream cheese.
The flan is one of the world’s most popular desserts with different variations of flavours, ingredients, and names.
The Filipino Leche Flan
What’s the main ingredient of the best flan in Toronto and the GTA? Filipino flair of course! The flan was brought to the Philippines at the time of the Spanish Colonization in the early 1500s and it has been a beloved dessert ever since. The people of the Philippines have taken the recipe and added their own twist. Filipino flan is renowned for its firm, silky, smooth texture, and extra creamy taste. This national dessert is delicious on its own but can make a yummy topping to other popular Filipino desserts like Maiz con Hielo (Spanish for corn with ice) and Halo-Halo (meaning mix-mix) – a popular Filipino milkshake that is a mix of crushed ice, evaporated milk, topped with an assortment of fruits, beans, coconut, jellies, ice cream and finally with a generous portion of Leche Flan.

“I first discovered this delicious dessert in the Philippines about 13 years ago. Since then, Leche flan has become my favourite dessert! It sort of resembles crème caramel and custard but it is much smoother and has a firmer texture.”
“Great customer service, was quick to reply when I initially inquired, delivery was prompt; in addition to the obvious, the three flans, tasted delicious. Will definitely be ordering again.”
