WHEN IN MANILA, coffee shops are no longer just a place to hang out after dinner.
FIGARO COFFEE SHOPS now serve Dinner Meals from 6PM onwards.
CHICKEN RICE BAKE (Php 150)
Flavorful chicken baste blended with creamy white sauce,
bell peppers, mushroom buttons, carrots,
in rice topped with melted cheese.
Paired with thirst quenching Lemonade.
At first sight, I was kind of disappointed because it looked like just another cup of rice.
But as soon as I scooped a mouthful, I was hooked.
It was like chicken-cheese pimiento fried rice.
Kids will like this meal because of the gooey cheese and chicken bits.
The Lemonade drink was a real thirst-quencher!
It was lightly sweet and tangy. Very refreshing!
We also tried the TOFU STEAK RICE (Php 150)
Sumptuous deep-fried tofu glazed with special sauce
sprinkled with white sesame seeds and rice garnished with parsley.
Paired with Lemonade.
The sauce was sweet and it tasted like fish steak.
The tofu cubes were big and not mushy.
It was yummy with the caramelized onions.
If you are trying to eat healthy, then this meal is for you!

MARGHERITA PIZZA (Php 179)
Personalized pizza topped with fresh basil, fresh tomatoes and mozzarella cheese
The whole pizza was about 6 inches in diameter – good for 1 person only.
I got excited because I could still smell the fresh basils when this was served to our table.
The crust was thin and very crunchy.
Cheese was just the right consistency – not too chewy.
What I liked most about Figaro’s Margherita Pizza is the fact that they only used the freshest ingredients!
The flavorful basil leaves and the fresh chunky tomatoes are still heaven in my mind.
Next, we tried the SPAGNOLO SARDINE PIZZA (Php 179)
Personalized pizza topped with Spanish sardines, green bell pepper, black olives, fresh tomatoes, pizza cheese and mozzarella cheeese
This was similarly as good as the Margherita Pizza.
I was hesitant at first because I am not a fan of sardines but this one I really liked because there was no strong fishy taste at all.
The tomato sauce, cheese and bell peppers complimented the sardines really well.
Lastly, we had AGLIO OLIO pasta (Php 179)
Linguini pasta, garlic and olive oil with addition of dried chili flakes, garnished with finely chopped parsley and parmesan cheese.
Wow! I was not ready for this.
There was a strong toasted garlic taste
and the chili flakes kicked in after just the first bite.
For spicy lovers, this is perfect for you!
Don’t forget to add more parmesan cheese. Believe me, it’ll taste better 🙂
Our food trip wasn’t over yet.
It’s time for dessert!
CIOCCOLATO MORSI (Php 119)
The heart sprinkles are only available this Valentine’s week.
I heard it has rum inside, but when I tried it,
there was no hint of rum or any alcohol whatsoever.
The chocolate surprise was a lovely treat!
Figaro’s Cioccolato Morsi closely resembles Starbuck’s Cake Pops.
It was pleasantly sweet with bits of nuts inside.
A must try indeed!
WHEN IN MANILA, have dinner at FIGARO COFFEE SHOP and
get a FREE Cioccolato Morsi on February 13, 14 and 15, 2012.
