You Can Get the Legendary ADB Cookies Outside the ADB Building
The ADB Building has some of the strictest security measures of any office in the Metro.

People line up for them, people skip work for them, people make friends who work at the ADB just to get them. They're sold at the company cafeteria, and because only 400 pieces are made at a time, they're rationed to 20 cookies for every person. The fact that they usually run out before 4 p.m. should be enough proof that these are some amazing chocolate treats.
If you've been busy crowdsourcing for a person to purchase these cookies for you (seriously, we've seen some desperate folks looking for ADB employees in online forums), then you should know that they'd been quietly available at Alta at Ascott Bonifacio Global City until last week. Now, you can actually order them from chef and restaurateur Margarita Fores.
Fores made the announcement of the cookie's availability on her Instagram page. The good news is that there are no security checks to order. The bad news? You need to call two days ahead.
Here's the number: 729-0030. Knock yourself out.
