Recently I was in Shangri-la Mall to sample the Lunch offerings of Figaro Coffee. Figaro is I guess one of the top Filipino Coffee brands that Champions the advocacy of promoting the local coffee industry.
So every time you order a cup of coffee from Figaro, in one way or the other you also help the local coffee industry.
But more than that, another reason why I visited the coffee shop was to sample their lunch offerings.
Most coffee shops in the metro normally offer coffee tea, and light snacks like sandwiches and pastries. But Figaro offers them all + rice and pasta meals too!
This is what I am going to explore during my recent visit! Wew! Excited!
Sweet Pork Katsu
I am no stranger to the Figaro brand. I always visit the SM Santa Rosa branch for my caffeine fix. This is the nearest branch from where I live
During my visit to their Shangri-la Branch, I was a bit surpried to see that everything on their Lunch Dinner and Pasta Menu were served in front of me! NAKAKALOKA!
Chicken Curry with Pineapply Chutney
For starters, I had the signature Figaro Mushroom Soup. I love the soup’s extra thick consistency.
After the soup come the parade of heavy meals: First was the Sweet Pork Katsu, then the Chicken Curry with Pineapple Chutney, and Pan Seared Chicken Barbecue with Java Rice.

Then the Pasta…
We had Figaro Meaty Lasagna, Chicken Parmigiana, and Seafood Pomarola.
There’s just a lot, literally!
I fell in love with the Chicken curry with pineapple chutney. It’s love at first bite! Yum yum yum yum yum! Delicioso!
Among the three pasta served, it’s the Figaro Meaty Lasagna and Seafood Pomarola that I love the most. Maybe because I love meaty foods, and I can actually feel the rich texture of the meat. And the sauce is good. It’s not too sweet, nor too sour. Tamang tama lang ang timpla.
The same goes with Seafood Pomarola. I am not always a big fan of sea foods. I’d always prefer meat over seafoods. And I always get rashes when I eat dishes served with not-so-fresh-seafoods. But Figaro’s seafood pasta is way beyond my expectations. It was good. The pasta was cooked al dente. the sauce it perfectly done. not too sweet, and not too sour either. And there’s a generous amount of shrimp in every serving! Sarap!
And do you think we will just end our meal at that? Of course, there was dessert! I had a slice of their Pandan Cake. Looks yummy!

but because I was already full after finishing the Sweet Pork Katsu, I ended up taking home all the other foods in front of me + 2 slices of the Pandan Cake. Winner di ba! Busog na may pa take out pa.
honestly I was so surprised that they served every dish on their lunch/dinner menu. Magrereklamo pa ba? hahaha
Anyways, I am taking this opportunity to thank Annesy del Mundo for inviting me to come over to Figaro Coffee and sample their menu.
