If you're from Batangas City, you probably have heard about this month old cafe, and it was last Saturday night when I, my sister and my bestfriend finally had the chance to visit this café. Yes, it is a very cold night since it was raining very hard and we can't do anything but to feel every bits of hunger. So with a very high expectation with the foods they offer, we had the following dishes for dinner.
To start with, they served us these drinks we ordered.
Best friend had a cup of hot Cappuccino for herself. It comes with a mini jar of brown sugar, means; you have the free will to decide how sweet your coffee will be. At first, I asked if they got latte arts because just like other cafés out there, they got pretty designs for the hot drinks, but too bad for me cause they don’t. (It will be my first time to try handcrafted latte with art supposedly.)
Next, my sister's iced drink despite of the cold weather. It does tastes well.
|Coffee Crumble Milk Shake (Php80)|
My drink doesn't have to be so dramatic that I can take hundred shots out of it. No, this one is just a choice to satisfy my very peculiar coffee craving. Yes, I don't drink coffee. But due to circumstances, I learned to take some shots, in the office, at home, and just wherever I go to. It comes with a cute little jar with glucose syrup in it. I just filled everything in, and it tasted good, just right.
|Iced Coffee Black (Php45)|
Since this thing carries the establishment's name, it is very compulsory for us to try it. The burger is pretty small, compared to those I got from burger joints out there which cost just the same. (They got reasons why, I know.) It wasn't bad, but there's still something missing.
|St. Honore Beef Burger - Php155|
Homemade beef pate topped with tomato and chili relish, saute red onions and cheddar cheese plus french fries.
Next is this sandwich I found interesting just because it has sauerkraut on it. Yes, it is a Western thing (German), and it means, sour cabbage. I was so eager to have my tongue tasted it the first time I saw its name, cause it bear a Bible name, right? But got disappointed that it doesn't have a generous portion of sauerkraut (People know how much I love veggies.) and cheddar cheese. But, it is pretty heavy, me and my best friend shared with the two slices.
|The Rueben - Php120|
Homemade corned beef, American cheddar, sauerkraut served in whole wheat bread and french fries.
We also had two mini cupcakes for dessert and they're just a thumb size.
|Mini Red Velvet Cupcake|
Mini Cookies and Cream Cupcake (Php15 each)
And you know what, they got very cheap pastries, and I havn't had the chance to try their cheesecake.
|Chocolate Mousseline Cake - Php[well, I forgot!]|
My sister's favorite part of the food trip is having herself some good selfies.
|As mentioned, she's my sister.|
Overall, I enjoyed the place, it was actually packed when we walked in. The food, I'm good with the Reuben, but maybe there were still a lot to try. I will not settle to my verdict, not until I tried every dish they have on their menu.
Anyways, I found four of my former classmates in college, and all of them, they're working on food industry. Two work at Bo's Coffee (haven't tried that though its just in front of the office), and the other two work at Pizza Hut.
