What’s New: Figaro’s Summer Fusion 2014

Who hasn’t heard of Figaro? With over 78 branches, including outlets in China, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, and Papau New Guinea, Figaro Coffee Company has easily taken over Metro Manila and other areas in the Philippines as well. Figaro Coffee Company is another good reason to take pride in being Pinoy because it’s a coffee shop that promotes Filipino coffee, not only in our country, but all over the world.

Top (L-R) Four Seasons (Php 130); Banana Mocha (Php 145)
Bottom (L-R) Coco Cappuccino (Php 145) Lychee Cucumber Fusion (Php 130)

Every summer in the Philippines, where the hot becomes unbearably hot, many Filipinos go for colder drinks to quench their thirst over their usual hot drink favorites. This is why Figaro Coffee’s Summer Fusion is back, with two new coffee-based drinks that will satisfy coffee lovers this season.

Lychee Cucumber Fusion (Php 130)

The fruit drinks, the Lychee Cucumber Fusion and the Four Seasons are both making a comeback this summer after a great reception from many customers last year. Lychee Cucumber Fusion is a refreshing combination of lychee and cucumber and makes the best summer companion among the four drinks. The Four Seasons proves that it isn’t your regular cup of juice, with guava, pineapple, mango and pomegranate, all mixed and blended to make the perfect juice drink.

Coco Capuccino (Php 145)

This year, Figaro also decided to concoct coffee-based summer drinks such as the Coco Capuccino and the Banana Mocha. Both drinks have a scoop of ice cream on top of the ice slush and diced coffee jelly. I loved the Banana Mocha because of its coffee-chocolate-banana combo which always works for me. And yes, you read the Coco (not cocoa) Cappuccino right. Aren’t you the least bit curious as to how this summer drink will fare with coco and cappucino mixed together? Go ahead and try it for yourself to find out!

Ratatouille Pizza (Php 169)

The Ratatouille Pizza, so called not because of any references made to Ratatouille the rat, is a vegetable pizza that contains eggplants, tomatoes, red and green bell pepper, zucchini and herbs, which sums up to a dish very timely for lent. This 7.5 inch-pizza is fully loaded with mixed, sauteed vegetables, and won’t make you miss meat at all! If you’re dieting or just trying to skip on meat, you’re going to like this as much as I did.

Shimp Sundried Pesto (Php 185)

Did you know that pesto was Italian for the word paste? And it did not only refer to the sauce itself, but also to the method of emulsifying leaves in oil. The green pesto made of basil, which is the classic pesto is called Pesto Genovese. And since pesto isn’t restricted to the green form only, one can make pesto with other ingredients, such as in this case, sundried tomatoes. The second dish on Figaro’s Eat Right & Light Menu is the Shrimp Sundried Pesto, made from sundried tomatoes, ground almonds, garlic, parmesan cheese, and shrimps. Pesto lovers would surely find this pasta dish appetizing, and not to mention, healthy.

Chocolate Quake

Figaro’s Sugar Cookie (Php 59/piece)

For desserts, we tried Figaro’s newest treats, the Chocolate Quake and the Figaro Sugar Cookie. The Chocolate Quake resembled a chocolater crinkle, only bigger with a diameter of 3 inches. The Figaro Sugar Cookie, on the other hand, is available in two flavors — Creamy Coffee and Buttermilk. The creamy coffee sugar cookie tasted similar to a butterscotch. It was very tasty and sweet, and big enough to share.

Do check out all these latest items on Figaro’s menu. Some are available for a limited time only, so don’t miss out!-HANA
