Last Wednesday, Bloggers were invited to taste Figaro’s new drinks and desserts! We were invited to visit their Shangri-la branch. Their new Ficaroccino and Frost drinks costs 130 pesos for the 16 oz. variants and 150 pesos for the 20 oz. variants
Figaroccino Caramel Chips
I am not sure if other coffee shops have this variant, but for me it was one of their most unique drinks. I was not used to eating caramel in chips form so it was a welcome treat to taste them on top of the whip cream – without it sticking to my teeth! I was hoping that there was more of the caramel chips in the drink itself though. Consistency wise, the figaroccino was blended well, there were no ice leftovers when you’ve finished the cup compared to other drinks.
White Chocolate Mocha Frost. In the past, this variant is what I usually order, but tastes evolve. It is a good selection for someone who wants to satisfy their sweet cravings. Based on some readings, white chocolate is the sweetest compared to other chocolates, maybe because they have to add some ingredients to make it look “white” yes? Please correct me though if I got my research incorrect.
Figaroccino Cookie Crumble. Made with Oreos, it is a drink for those who can’t get enough of their love for oreo cookies. I didn’t get to taste much of the coffee, so for those who wants a Figaroccino fix without the coffee, this is a good selection. Just make sure that you check it first with the barista if it has any caffeine content.
My personal favorite is the Choco Chips Java Frost, just because its chocolate! It has a distinct dark chocolate flavor, slightly bitter and sweet. The cream and the choco chips was just a welcome addition to my drink of choice. I hoped that there was more chocolate chips though just because I love it!
Their new desserts are Figaro’s Carrot Cake and Orange Coffee Cake.
The Carrot Cake is a moist sponge cake with shredded carrots fudged with nutty and flavorful almond bits to satisfy your cravings for sweets – healthy sweets!
The cake is adorned with orange and white frosting with a carrot decor on top. It costs 105 pesos per slice.
The Orange Coffee Cake, is a sponge cake too with orange (of course) as the main flavor. It has a tanginess to it, perfect for any bittersweet drinks that Figaro offers.
They also offer meals! I was served their Pan Seared, Chicken Barbecue with Java Rice. This meal costs P150.00 only!
As time goes by, Filipinos are welcomed by different varieties of food, which opens up our eyes to other flavors to satisfy our palate. Visit Figaro today, to know more about their coffee, desserts and meals, visit http://www.figarocoffee.com/
