I was on my usual route to Ayala and as I was driving along F. Cabahug , spotted a new restaurant at the ground floor of Strand Tower. Who would miss that bright orange signage just above the restaurant entrance? Looking at the signage, I had an impression that it’s a coffee shop, but they are actually more than just a place that serves coffee. The interiors of the cafe are accented in earth colors of brown and green, giving out a very homey feel. Got comfy at the brown foamed couch at one end of the restaurant and browsed on the menu and found some intriguing dishes. I love coffee so much and one really interesting dish that struck me was the Coffee Spare Ribs which I will be trying on my next TazaPlatito visit. Since my current craving during that time was seafood, I had the house specialty – Shrimp in Salted Egg Butter Sauce.
Fresh shrimps in a very delicious sauce which surprisingly are good together. Serving comes with a cup of rice. A must try when dining at TazaPlatito! Shrimp in Salted Egg Butter Sauce, 21ophp.
Also tried the Fettuccini and the Barbecue Spareribs. Both dishes reminded me of my grandma’s cooking, a memory that my tastebuds won’t forget! Those moments when a good plate was served and I just kept on scooping in until nothing is left on the plate. ^_^
The Fettuccini was not the creamy kind but the little sauce that sticked on the pasta was flavorful and the crunchy bacon made each pork swirl a delight.
The Barbecue spare ribs was tender and the sauce had a smokey hint. I love how its not sweet which made me enjoy its smokey herby barbecue flavor more.
Parched as I arrived at the restaurant, my Ice Blended Matcha Tea was consumed in just four sips. hahaha. Had another round of drink as I wrap up my late lunch, ending the meal with a cup of pure Oslob chocolate with puto. Buurp.
TazaPlatito Cafe is a great place to bond with the family, chill with friends or even a good place for students to study at because the mood is set to be real comfortable. The servers are also very attentive and friendly. And since I’d been really looking forward to try those Coffee Spare Ribs, I might make time this week to go back and nibble on a serving. Are you coming? 😉
