I’m not much of a coffee drinker. I think the only time I was consuming iced coffee drinks was back in college with a reason to do so to help me study past midnight. So really, I don’t go to coffee shops.

But two weeks ago, I was invited by the folks of Figaro to join them at their blogger event to introduce a couple of new items on their menu.
 I wish I had gone to the event with an empty stomach because there were a lot of food to try out! Figaro introduced their Buon Lite Meals:

Tilapia en Papillote (P239)
Tilapia fillet with lemon, capers & herbs. 

Basil Penne Insalata (P150)
A healthy mix of scrumptious sun dried tomatoes, black olives, feta cheese & basil pesto penne topped with square ham. 

They also added a classic Filipino merienda, Pancit Luglug (P155).

For refreshments, I got to try Kape Indochine, Figaro’s Barako Coffee that is traditionally brewed in Vietnamese style. Served hot or iced. I liked it! Like I said, I’m not a coffee drinker, but this one is amazingly light to taste, not too dark, or creamy, or sweet. Just right!

Of course, a trip to Figaro would not be complete without having cake! We got to try their new Blue Velvet Cake and Tablea Blackout Cake.

Tablea Blackout Cake (P115/slice)
This Tablea Blackout Cake brings the deeper level of chocolate flavor experience. The moist cake core is frosted with toasted earthy tablea pudding. 

Blue Velvet Cake (P110/slice)
It is the perfect twist to the traditional Red Velvet Cake we all know and love. This time with delicious blueberry cream cheese frosting to delight your sweet cravings.

I liked the Blue Velvet Cake better because I’m not much of a chocolate lover either.

Before we left, they served their summer coolers. They said Four Seasons is their best seller. I agree! It’s the best out of the bunch. Maybe Jacob would like the Banana Choconut Fusion.

We’ll be coming back to Figaro next week to get a whole Blue Velvet Cake for the whole fam. I got to take home a slice of Blue Velvet Cake and some of the basil penne pasta. It’s so nice they took notice of what I loved the most! Thanks, Figaro!

  1. That blue velvet cake is to drool for! Because blue is my fave color I hope it’s good as it looks like.
