Yay for another looloo rendezvoos! Since my sched is quite “special”, I hardly go to such events. Good thing this one was held in Makati where I was able to drop by for a few hours. It has been a while since I last visited any Figaro branch. I remember one of the reviewers that day saying that it was kinda nostalgic for him to be there. I got that feeling too. I’m not sure if it’s still open to this day but there were two Figaro branches in my college before. Though I never bought much from there (yes, I was saving up my allowance), I remember the times that I did splurge. Yes, I considered buying coffee here as a splurge. Fast forward to today, their coffee choices remain to be one of those affordable ones that’s rightly priced. They retained the classics, and even have new choices. They do keep up with the times what with all those third wave cafes around.
Their coffee still remains to be a goodie! I could really taste the almond here as well as the kick of espresso. Nice latte art on this one too. 🙂
One of the new items on their menu, I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I liked the paired vinaigrette on this as it balanced the whole salad. It wasn’t that acidic too which I liked.
As much as I want to be healthy, their Mexican Taco Salad won me over. I liked the flavor on the ground beef and slight heat I got from those jalapeños.
Some mac & cheese tend to be cloying. This one wasn’t. It was very light in the sense that I could have more bites (and I did). I did have trouble in getting my share for the cheese was gooey. But cheese is cheese. 😀
They definitely didn’t scrimp on the bacon here. It paired well with the butter croissant, lettuce and tomatoes.
I wanted to love this dish. I really do. The pork was good and tender. And overall, the sandwich was good. But I was looking for that tangy BBQ taste which I find to be lacking. Or maybe my portion of this didn’t have much sauce. Hmm…
Since I had to leave early that evening (duty calls!), there were a couple more dishes that I missed out on. Some I wasn’t even to take a photo of. Luckily, I was able to snap a few more dishes showcased below.
This branch of theirs is only open during weekdays as that is when the busy work week comes in. They do have this available for private functions during the weekend which is ideal as the place was quite big.
With over 94 branches here and abroad, Figaro has been keeping up with the times since 1993. They continue to innovate their product line not just to be one with the trend but also to please their customers both new and old. 🙂
