All-Day Breakfast At Figaro

It was an unplanned foodcrawl in Quezon City with some bloggers and since I have some free time before I fetch my daughter from school, I happily joined the foodcrawlers. First stop was Figaro along Tomas Morato.

Figaro's one of the most established local coffeshop in Manila and its been around for two decades. Of course, they serve the best coffee (according to my coffee-crazed husband). But Figaro has more to offer than just coffee- they also have pasta, pizza and sandwiches, pastries, and the All-Day Breakfast.


We got to try their all-day breakfast favorites, coffee and iced-tea.

Gourmet Tuyo in Olive Oil, P219. I don't really eat tuyo but my co-bloggers was really enjoying this meal so I had to take a bite. Oh my! If all tuyo tasted like this, I think I'll eat it every day. It's not salty and doesn't have an aftertaste which was the reason I think I dislike tuyo. But then again, this is bottled gourmet tuyo in olive oil so the taste is really different. Thumbs up!



Salisbury Steak, P229. This is a classic favorite of kids and the kids-at-heart. I mean, if you really can't decide which one to order, this is usually the default meal to order. And I had this- hahaha. Its good except that I find the gravy a bit sweet.



Beef Broccoli Stir-Fry, P229. This is another love. The beef was tender and well, broccoli's healthy. And I love Figaro's Iced-Tea. :)



Here's the menu for the All-Day Breakfast at Figaro.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
