We have found your new favorite shopping destination – and your SO will love it, too!
Empire Fashion Cafe is a shopping haven AND a cafe rolled into one cozy space. It houses several online shops, like fan merchandise favorite Seashop, chic bag boutique Mica & Co., swimsuit brand Hapee Jonee, and many more – perfect for the shopaholic in you.
If you came with someone, you will be happy to hear that your shopping companion – who came with you either willingly or by force -won’t grow impatient even if you try on 20 dresses because of the delicious food Empire Fashion Cafe has on their menu. If you came alone, you’ll be happy to hear that if you get hungry in the middle of fitting your 9th pair of shoes, you won’t need to go far just to get some food in your belly.
In fact, we tried out some of them for you – and here are our favourites:
These grilled lava nachos will bring you to cheese heaven for only Php175!
Take a short break from shopping and snap an IG photo of these spam fries (Php135) – they will brighten up your feed, too!
If you love spicy food, you need to try out Empire Fashion Cafe’s buffalo wings – just make sure you ask for water before taking a bite! For Php180 pesos, you’ll get to experience a flame fest inside your mouth – the good kind!
Get their carbonara for Php155 – super sulit for this creamy goodness!
Go big or go home – if that’s your motto in life, try Empire’s Ultimate Burger served with onion rings and iced tea! (Php245 for a single patty and Php295 for a double patty burger)
For someone who lives and breathes for Oreo, the Fried Wicked Oreos sure felt like heaven to me! Get this for dessert and your S.O. will love you even more.
Fancy milkshakes are the trend now – and a taste of this Choco Dino Freak milkshake is one of the best ones we’ve had!
With their third branch opening in Pasig, Empire Fashion Cafe is inching its way closer to its goal: to have a branch in every city in the Metro. We can’t wait for our new favourite fashion and food fusion store to open more branches in addition to the ones in Marikina, Pasig, and Maginhawa, Quezon City – a shopping and dining haven indeed!
